@hwkiller - the build worked with the alternate gwt file location. I also had to create the symlinks that @brianstamper did for the build to work. Thanks!

hwkiller commented on 2021-05-14 18:08

Indeed; seems like that link is down. For the time being, could you try substituting it with, say, the .zip found here: (from the gwt homepage).

ith140 commented on 2021-05-14 17:21

This fails when trying to retrieve the gwt buildtool. 403 Error (forbidden) reported by curl.

I found that to get this to work I had to go into src/rstudio/dependencies/ and create some symlinks. The first two are just copies of the ones I found in the 'common' subdirectory.

ln -s /usr/share/myspell/dicts dictionaries
ln -s /usr/share/mathjax2 mathjax-27
ln -s common/pandoc/ .

Edit (Jan 23, 2021, 15:13): I posted my message below prematurely. I did not read, or did not understand, the post by @bartus (2021-01-22 12:29). After I followed the advice there, namely applying the patch, the makepkg -s proceeded to the end with no error and I was then able to pacman -U the package successfully.

I am failing to build the package with makepkg -s. I might be missing something simple.

What I have done:

git clone
cd rstudio-desktop-git
makepkg -s

It works for around 10 mins and then

make[2]: *** No rule to make target '/opt/rstudio-tools/yaml-cpp/0.6.3/build/libyaml-cpp.a', needed by 'src/cpp/core/rstudio-core-tests'.  Stop.

==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

I have installed yaml-cpp with pacman, just in case that was related, but no.

I've made some adjustments, fix missing yaml-cpp and speed up cran packages build.

merge with git am -s < <(curl -s and cherry-pick what you like git rebase -i origin/master

btw. dependencies/common/install-packages put R pacakges like lxml in user directory $HOME/R, are they only required to build rstudio wasn't they be missed in resulting package?

Edit: I've updated patch to use new option to enable system yaml-cpp :)

@amsesk simply recompile rstudio after boost-libs update.

amsesk commented on 2020-12-09 19:10

SECOND UPDATE: Alright, using the downgraded boost and boost-libs packages was messing-up other applications that use them (eg. libre office). So I've since upgraded the system (ie with pacman) to boost/boost-libs 1.74.0-1, but have unpacked the older packages (ie, boost/boost-libs 1.72.0-4) at /opt/rstudio and put the path to the libraries in a new file at /etc/

Contents of /etc/


After a restart RStudio and other boost-using applications seem to be working without error.

UPDATE: I was able to fix the qt errors by putting symbolic links to the three qtwebengine_resources_*.pak files I found located at /usr/share/qt/resources/ in ~/.QtWebEngineProcess. Rstudio seems to be launching okay now. I'm not skilled enough to know how to patch the package though. Please note that I am still using the downgraded boost and boost-libs packages (ie 1.72.0-4).

I'm getting launch errors with Arch update to boost-1.74.0-1 and boost-libs-1.74.0-1. I was originally running a version that I installed via makepkg, but am getting the same errors when following the instructions on GitLab that had me add the rstudio repo and install from there with pacman directly.

rstudio: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Downgrading to versions 1.72.0-4 for boost and boost-libs allows the GUI to open, but then there are QtWebEngine errors that make the GUI unusable:

Path override failed for key ui::DIR_LOCALES and path '/home/aimzez/.QtWebEngineProcess'

Is there an easy fix for this? Thank you so much for maintaining this package and please let me know if I can provide more useful information for debugging.

@bartus thank you for the fixes. Now you can push as maintainer.
