For HiDPI screens, NetLogo (6.1.1-1) might not work out of the box and the font/UI might be way too small. You can fix it per this post (, but it didn't work for me since the model library won't launch when I started NetLogo in this way.

You basically need to cd into the installation directory first:

cd /.../netlogo/app/
export GDK_SCALE=3 && java -jar /.../netlogo/app/netlogo-6.1.1.jar

You need a relatively new version of Java for GDK_SCALE to work, use archlinux-java if you need to change the version of Java you are using.

@Gobochul I've just checked again and md5sums are correct, yay installed the package without errors. Please try to install again cleaning the cache of your aur helper first. (If using yay delete ~/.cache/yay/netlogo folder)

For some reason the validity check fails for me. Any idea how to fix this?

@chendaniely I added gendesk as a make dependency, which creates the .desktop file. I couldn't find an image that was already bundled with the software, so I used one from

Is there a way to create a netlogo.desktop file for this?
One I've used is this:

In the PKGBUILD, the line:
> chmod +x $file
should be changed to
> chmod +x $pkgdir/opt/$pkgname/$file

Both the archive and the installed files should now have the correct permissions:

$ tar tvf netlogo-5.3.1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
-rwxr-xr-x root/root 7136 2016-06-02 15:34 opt/netlogo/NetLogoLogging
-rwxr-xr-x root/root 7136 2016-06-02 15:34 opt/netlogo/HubNetClient
-rwxr-xr-x root/root 7136 2016-06-02 15:34 opt/netlogo/NetLogo3D
-rwxr-xr-x root/root 7136 2016-06-02 15:37 opt/netlogo/NetLogo

$ ls -l /opt/netlogo/
total 6160

Hmm, the executables in /opt/netlogo aren't executable by default. Things run correctly with a chmod +x.
