In order order to update (and/or build), you may need to uninstall scilab then build it and finally reinstall it to avoid conflicts between the two versions.

For now, scilab fails to run when launched from outside a terminal.

What is the rationale behind not changing anything in the package albeit increasing the pkgrel number?

As I understand the PKGBUILD documentation pkgrel is supposed to be incremented as there are made fixes and enhancements to PKGBUILD.

Updated versions of required libraries will get used by simply rebuilding the old unaltered package.

It works now! I checked out the jars for jlatexmath-fop.jar and jlatexmath.jar for v1.0.3 and they're both HTML files. The download location has been moved (which has been flagged at these packages). Sorry should have bugged them with this.

Yeah I know but it isn't... I've checked that the file exists at /usr/share/java/jlatexmath/jlatexmath.jar but it is not detected by Scilab's configure script.

EDIT: I'm now building the latest jlatexmath (1.0.6) using Maven and going to install it and see if Scilab builds then.

@fusion809: The '/usr/share/java/jlatexmath/jlatexmath.jar' file should be corrected by the configure script (see near line 20900)

1.0.3 of jlatexmath, I always use the latest packages, I run pacaur -Syu daily, at least. How would I configure it to find it? Edit the configure lines in the PKGBUILD to include `--with-jlatexmath=/path/to/jar`?

@fusion809: with the current version of jlatexmath in the AUR, confgure correctly find the jlatexmath.jat file. Which version are you using?

@uboot: you could try do downgrade batik to version 1.7 to see if it's working.

Fails to build as it can't find jlatexmath despite the fact it is installed:

Build works (had to supply jlatexmath*.jar dependencies myself), but Xcos is broken:

Caused by: java.lang.RuntimeException: Unable to load the Batik library.
Expecting version 1.7 ; Getting version 1.9 .

@mcrai: I've the same version, maybe it's something specific to Manjaro.

mcrai commented on 2017-08-06 18:39

@eolanoe: Thanks for your effort. I am using curl 7.54.1-2 and java-batik 1.9-1. Could you please indicate the versions you are using?
