Fails if rstudio-desktop-bin is installed, should ask to replace/uninstall

artemklevtsov commented on 2016-10-12 04:31

Please fix launch script. Should be: exec /usr/lib/rstudio/bin/rstudio "$@".

When I go to tools > global options it takes about 30 seconds (aka a really long time) for the options menu to show up.
If I leave RStudio open and do it again, it opens pretty much instantaneously (the expected behavior).
If I close RStudio and go to tool > global options again, it will take a really long time to open.

Anyone else having this issue?

thanks @florianbw, updated the PKGBUILD incorporating your changes.

Also just updated the package

Thanks for the fix - however you made a small mistake not using the $pkgdir variable:

ln -s $SYS_PANDOC /usr/lib/rstudio/bin/pandoc/pandoc and
ln -s $SYS_PANDOC_CITEPROC /usr/lib/rstudio/bin/pandoc/pandoc-citeproc

should be

ln -s $SYS_PANDOC $pkgdir/usr/lib/rstudio/bin/pandoc/pandoc and
ln -s $SYS_PANDOC_CITEPROC $pkgdir/usr/lib/rstudio/bin/pandoc/pandoc-citeproc

The PKGBUILD file was patched so to automatically incorporate the pandoc fix described here:

thanks @malditobarbudo. dependencies is definitely something I need the community to help me out with. I had some of the other AUR (3 and 4) versions installed and probably missed something while testing it on my own machine.


Knitr/rmarkdown does not work out of the box. It is due to the pandoc binary rstudio ships. Please see this thread for a fix:

You can maybe consider to add patchelf (in community repository) to dependencies, as it fails to build if patchelf is not installed, giving an error in line 53 of PKGBUILD

Nice work by the way!!
