Hi, @mithanan. You can use Fcitx5 via this command.

sudo wget -O /usr/lib/rstudio/plugins/platforminputcontexts/

Restart Rstudio, and you can use Fcitx5 now.

For more information, read these two Chinese posts:

Hi @mithanan:

I'm not sure if Fctix input can be used with rstudio. According to this article (abet it's a bit old) you can:

according to the post:

On Linux, RStudio uses a bundled version of Qt 5 that does not include support for Fctix by default. To resolve the problem, you can add Fctix's Qt 5 plugin from your system's Qt 5 installation to RStudio's platform input plugin folder:

$ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/$(dpkg-architecture -qDEB_BUILD_MULTIARCH)/qt5/plugins/platforminputcontexts/ /usr/lib/rstudio/bin/plugins/platforminputcontexts/

But I'm not sure how this would work in Arch, as it'll depend on how Arch installs Qt and stuff.

Is there a way to use fcitx to input Chinese and other languages

the SHA256 sum issue should be fixed after the version update. Running makepkg -si on my machine installed RStudio without any issues. Not sure what may have caused it, maybe they did a hotfix push between versions that didn't actually bump the version number, who knows.

I also added the postgresql-libs to the dependencies so it should match the other rstudio aur packages now.

Current version (1.4.1048-1) is failing the validity check

It turns out that the RStudio 1.4.869 binary for Debian / Ubuntu installs the Debian package libpq5 as a dependency. Apparently RStudio 1.4 requires the PostgreSQL client libraries. That surprises me; I'll dig through the release notes when I get a free half-hour or so.

Meanwhile, the PKGBUILD for this package should have a dependency to bring in postgresql-libs.

@znmeb, installing postgresql-libs fixed my problem. Thank you very much

znmeb commented on 2020-10-04 01:49

@br_shadow: is the PostgreSQL client library. You may need to install / reinstall extra/postgresql-libsor install / reinstall any R packages that interface to PostgreSQl.

I have the Arch package installed and don't get the error. If you don't have it installed and aren't using PostgreSQL it's probably an upstream RStudio issue - they may be looking to connect to PostgreSQL by default.

After upgrading to 1.4.869 Rstudio fails to open with the following message

The R session process exited with code 127.

/usr/lib/rstudio/bin/rsession: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Will this be updated to 1.4 when it's brought up to date? They just migrated the preview download site.
