as pointed by @arslonga postgresql-libs should be added as dependency, on a fresh arch install rstudio-server fails to start because is missing.

@bluerider yes it worked!!

sudo useradd --system rstudio-server

and now everything is clean. I checked with:

sudo rstudio-server verify-installation
systemctl start rstudio-server.service

Would you please patch the PKGBUILD to also check for existence of such user using id -u "rstudio-server" and if not creating it.

@mehrad Can you add a rstudio-server user to your Linux machine?

mehrad commented on 2021-10-08 13:10

@petya No I'm still struggling with it. In the meanwhile I am using a singularity container until @bluerider or someone from the community can help us with this situation.

@mehrad Did you ever figure out what caused your issue with [description: User not found., user-value: ]? I have the same issue.

I get the following error and don't know how to solve it. Any help is much appreciated:

rstudio-server verify-installation

22 Sep 2021 11:32:20 [rserver] ERROR Could not change permissions for specified 'server-data-dir' - the directory (/var/run/rstudio-server) must be writeable by all users and have the sticky bit set; LOGGED FROM: int main(int, char* const*) src/cpp/server/ServerMain.cpp:661

I have tried the following and it didn't help:

cd /var/run
sudo chmod -R 775 rstudio-server
sudo chown -R rstudio:rstudio rstudio-server
sudo chmod +t rstudio-server

Update: After reading some forums I ended with running the verify-installation with sudo (which I'm not comfortable with):

sudo rstudio-server verify-installation

Based on [description: User not found., user-value: ] it seems that some config file issue (which I don't have any for Rstudio server but I have Rstudio desktop installed (rstudio-desktop-bin AUR). I have checked that a user named rstudio do exist in the /etc/passwd.
