@ith140 - I had the same error too. Try install "libxkbcommon-x11". It worked after rebooting in my case.

@Meow: just a heads up, the preview + daily builds have changed their versioning conventions (multiple times); they're moving to a date-based numbering.

@asm0dey - I have the same problem as you (KDE as well). I've tried several rstudio AUR package versions and none of them seem to start (on another arch machine I have, I don't have this problem and have gone thourgh several package updates, but my brand new machine which never had rstudio on it fails as yours does).

I've also done some preliminary troubleshooting to try to find the problem but have turned up nothing yet. The only thing I found was that it will start if I start the program using sudo (not a good idea but it does run).

The git version of this package builds and runs fine for me as a normal user and without the xcb error.

Fails ti run for me:

qt.qpa.plugin: Could not load the Qt platform plugin "xcb" in "/usr/lib/rstudio/plugins/platforms" even though it was found.
This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

Available platform plugins are: eglfs (from /usr/lib/rstudio/plugins/platforms), linuxfb (from /usr/lib/rstudio/plugins/platforms), minimal (from /usr/lib/rstudio/plugins/platforms), minimalegl (from /usr/lib/rstudio/plugins/platforms), offscreen (from /usr/lib/rstudio/plugins/platforms), vnc (from /usr/lib/rstudio/plugins/platforms), wayland-egl (from /usr/lib/rstudio/plugins/platforms), wayland (from /usr/lib/rstudio/plugins/platforms), wayland-xcomposite-egl (from /usr/lib/rstudio/plugins/platforms), wayland-xcomposite-glx (from /usr/lib/rstudio/plugins/platforms), xcb (from /usr/lib/rstudio/plugins/platforms), eglfs, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, vnc, wayland-egl, wayland, wayland-xcomposite-egl, wayland-xcomposite-glx, xcb.

when will the new version of RStudio be made available that brings major improvements and new experiences to those who program in R? Version 1.4.X is now available.

ith140 commented on 2020-12-24 18:03

This also has a dependency on icu67.

This needs an integrity check.


Will do.
