Got same error...

make: *** [Makefile:152: all] Error 2

With a bit of backtracking...

BUILD FAILED /tmp/makepkg/rstudio-desktop/src/rstudio-rstudio-f1ac345/src/gwt/build.xml:98: Error running javac compiler

So my javac binary decided to disappear even with jdk-openjdk installed, huh? Turns out I still had wrong Java version set as default and after executing

# archlinux-java set java-8-openjdk

ant was finally willing to build gwt and the Rstudio installation was complete.

ben - if you are going to try to source the ant config file, you need to do it before the test to see if ant is on the PATH. Otherwise the test will fail and makepkg will exit before the file is sourced. You probably also want to change the cmake line to install somewhere other than /usr/local as that is not used in Arch (/opt/rstudio may be best).

td123 - that's true, but won't work for the java dependency as they could have openjdk or jdk. You could try sourcing the files for both I suppose.

On that note, the JDK is required to build this package, so the dependency should be java-environment, not java-runtime. And it is only a makedepends I believe.

jowilkin, another solution to the missing apache and problem is to do the following line in the PKGBUILD: source /etc/profile.d/

jelly - GWT is in AUR, but the RStudio build process expects it to be in a very specific place (the place that the build process downloads it to). I've contacted the devs to see if it's possible to use an existing installation of GWT instead, but in it's current state, it won't build unless the GWT installation is present in the source tree.

The boost errors are also fixed in the RStudio git tree, so there are no errors building the git package right now related to boost. If this package does currently have errors related to boost requiring modification of the compile flags, then that will be fixed by updating to a newer tag in the RStudio git repo.

zeltak - that most likely means that you had apache-ant installed as a dependency during the build process. You need to log out and log back in so that ant is placed on your PATH, and then the build should work for you. It's a limitation of the way ant is packaged that it will not appear on your PATH after you install it unless you log out and back in.

Hi zeltak, this may be because you don't have java or ANT installed or configured on the system correctly - the script used to sort this but it was changed to just give an error, because it went and altered a persons files ad made an unmanaged link so was deemed bad practice, and so I implemented a method suggested by jwolkin below in his git version of this package. I'm not 100 % sure on what a person should do if this is indeed the cause of the error - myself I used the PKGBUILD back when it created the link so all other versions up to now work for my machine - which makes it difficult to determine if others will have issues. If this is indeed the source of the error I think what you need to do is make sure ant is on the PATH. If it is not the error then I'm unsure - it's a completely new one to me. There is a forum thread here which has discussion of building r-studio. An alternative would be to set up a github account and see if the git version does the same thing.

im a neewb trying to install r-studio. i get this error :
