pandoc 2.x might cause some issues with rmarkdown. See:

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:
