Please git rm .gitignore.

yes, please fix ASAP

it’s hugely annoying to click on .R or .Rproj files and RStudio just opens blank

Adding "$@" to the end of line 94 on the PKGBUILD will allow users to open files in RStudio by typing "rstudio-bin <file-name>.R" into the command line instead of having to launch RStudio and then open the file from inside the RStudio environment.

I could not get r studio to start, and I'm not sure exactly what the problem is. It would simply return with a exit code 0.

Running strace on it revealed that it was looking for an LC_TIME file in various directories and couldn't find it. My Arch did not have any LC_TIME files, but copying the file from an Ubuntu box to Arch in one of those locations allowed r studio to start. I'm really not sure how to fix it properly.

Just thought I'd leave a comment in case others needed it though.

It's not depend on GTK but Qt (ldd return this : )

Bug: does not support fcitx input framework. See

I tried copying /usr/lib/qt/plugins/platforminputcontexts/ to /usr/lib/rstudio/bin/plugins/platforminputcontexts but couldn't get it to work. While /usr/lib/rstudio/bin/plugins/platforminputcontexts already has so the ibus input framework works.

Try to build the package in an other directory.

yaourt -a rstudio-desktop-bin --tmp ~/

Your error is related to an an insufficient disk space in /tmp where packages are built by default.

You're rigth. Thank you.

I have another error :
-> Compression du paquet...
xz : (stdout) : Erreur d'écriture : Aucun espace disponible sur le périphérique
bsdtar: Write error
==> ERREUR : Échec à la création du paquet.

How can I solve it?

If you're on the 32 bits version the problem is related to the absence of rsclang.

First, install clang if it's not already done.

Then, follow my previous post and modify the pkgbuild as follows:

mkdir -p "$pkgdir/usr/lib/rstudio/bin/rsclang" # because rsclang is not created
cd "$pkgdir/usr/lib/rstudio/bin/rsclang" # unchanged
ln -sf /usr/lib/ ./ # a symlink for, so you need clang
#patchelf --set-rpath '$ORIGIN/..' # commented because it gives the following error 'stat: No such file or directory.'

I have this problem :

/tmp/yaourt-tmp-franck/aur-rstudio-desktop-bin/./PKGBUILD: ligne 68 : cd: /tmp/yaourt-tmp-franck/aur-rstudio-desktop-bin/pkg/rstudio-desktop-bin/usr/lib/rstudio/bin/rsclang: Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type

How can I solve it?
