The desktop launcher is now working with this package. However, it is still missing a binary in /usr/bin.

My PKGBUILD includes /usr/bin/rstudio, and since I'm using the .deb package for Ubuntu 22, I've also pruned the dependencies.

@Meow consider updating your PKGBUILD with my version.

@Meow also the .install file is useless as those commands are automatically executed by the alpm hooks

BTW, I've asked upstream why the binary is not located in the usual location:

@Meow Could you please add to the package an executable to /usr/bin, that @Atom194 mentioned on 20th of September 2023? Atom's solution worked for me and was a missing piece to have a complete installation.

@cbrnr commentary on 13rd of September 2023 mentioned one PKGBUILD available on Github that contains the symlink creation that is not in the rstudio-desktop-bin PKGBUILD, Last Updated: 2023-11-05 16:09 (UTC).

I would call the symlink after the package's name rstudio-desktop-bin, instead of rstudio-bin in the mentioned Github PKGBUILD, for clarity.

KDE user, can confirm cbrnr's PKGBUILD was sufficient, thanks!

cbrnr commented on 2023-10-13 09:02 (UTC)

FYI, a working and current PKGBUILD is available here:

Probably true, but it would be nice to have someone confirm it. However, I'll remove it from my PKGBUILD in the next version following the YAGNI principle.

Atom194 commented on 2023-09-20 12:31 (UTC)


I think that nobody needs it. Therefore, it is unnecessary and unwanted.

Setting environment variables that are not required is a bad idea, especially if nobody knows what they do.

Also, if only KDE users require this. It should only be exported for KDE users.

cbrnr commented on 2023-09-20 12:03 (UTC)

Then I'd rather leave it in for now. If someone can test this on KDE I'm happy to remove it if it isn't needed.
