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

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.

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.

@cbrnr I do not use KDE either.

cbrnr commented on 2023-09-20 11:42 (UTC)

@Atom194 it's probably not necessary, I just left it in for good measure, since I don't use KDE myself (so I can't test it). Can you try if everything works as expected in KDE if you do not export this variable?

Is export KDEDIRS=/usr neceserry in cbrnr PKGBUILD? [1]

I do not know what the KDEDIRS variable does. I am guessing that it is only necessary for KDE users?

Is there a reason why the package does not add an executable to /usr/bin ?

Simple ln -s /usr/lib/rstudio/rstudio /usr/bin/rstudio-desktop-bin should do the trick.

Could this command be added to PKGBUILD?
