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.

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.

@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?

The new release does not contain the menu entry, again. Users will wonder how to start RStudio. Is there a particular reason why you ignore all comments related to packaging and other improvements?

Conflicts with rstudio-desktop-git, rstudio-desktop-preview-bin are unnecessary because they both provide rstudio-desktop.

The latest PKGBUILD, which includes a fix for the missing desktop icon, drops the openssl-1.1 requirement, and has some convenient improvements regarding the two version strings and the multi-line echo at the bottom, is available here:

@Meow it would be great if you integrated these fixes. Or is there a reason why you think this is a bad idea?
