Hi Everyone:

Sorry for the update delay. I was still trying to figure out what was going on with the package. Seems like the "preview" release is still on QT (the daily is using electron) so I still need to have the --sandbox hack below.

The electron vs QT differences was causing me a lot of issues. You can head over to the daily comments for a bit more detail if you care.

Now that this is all working, I'll be slowly figuring out the little server in my closet to automate the udpates now.

Happy hacktoberfest!

quick fix for the --no-sandbox / --disable-seccomp-filter-sandbox issue in rstudio is to either:

  1. export RSTUDIO_CHROMIUM_ARGUMENTS="--disable-seccomp-filter-sandbox" >> ~/.bashrc

  2. You can also aim to modify /usr/share/applications/rstudio.desktop to include --disable-seccomp-filter-sandbox at the end of the exec section

See this GitHub comment and the one below it:

edit: used to say --no-sandbox, changed becaues of @alarg's comment

Everything should be fixed now (i hope)? The url and package name format kept changing the last few months and was constantly breaking things. Not to mention all the rules around valid pkgver characters.

For anyone having problems with the update to 2021.09.2+382: The maintainer mistyped the package url in the PKGBUILD file. The second "pkgver=2021.09.2%2B382" should really be a "pkgver_url=2021.09.2%2D382", where %2D is the URL percent encoding for the hyphen.

I already contacted the maintainer @chendaniely for the previous version +372, but it seems he hasn't fixed it.

As an aside, if anyone else runs into problems with flickering/disappearing RStudio windows following a recent system update, a temporary workaround is to downgrade mesa. See here:

Working now, thanks @chendaniely!

Thanks, @Gmcd can you give it a try again? I didn't think I needed to change that since the version didn't really change, but realized I needed to build another arch machine to properly test the build.

Should be working now?

Thanks @chendaniely, but it looks like I'm still getting a checksum error:

==> Validating source_x86_64 files with sha256sums... rstudio-2021.09.1-372-amd64.deb ... FAILED ==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

Sorry for the delay folks. Literally things broke at the worst possible time for me to try and fix. But I think things are working now. My main Arch machine is having issues connecting to the internet, but let me know if this is working properly for folks.
