@Focshole: the correct way is to install the old curses libraries, i.e. ncurses5-compat-libs. That's what the dependency is for.

@Focshole: I might add manual extraction soon since a new pacman release doesn't seem to be anywhere close.

/usr/lib/ is provided by ncurses5-compat-libs, which is a dependency of this package - did you actually have a problem or did you just create the symlink as a misguided precaution (that's usually a horrible idea by the way, so-versions exist for a reason).

To update to last version (at least, it worked for me):

0) setting my aur helper working directory somewhere else (/tmp couldn't fit it)

1)updated pkgver, _more_ver and md5sum

2)in package() I added at the beginning:

tar -xrf Xilinx_Vivado_${pkgver}_${_more_ver}"

cd "Xilinx_Vivado_${pkgver}_${_more_ver}" (removed "SDK" word)

3)replace 2019.1 with 2019.2 in the "install udev rules"

If is missing (, then check if it was installed from aur (Blackarch repo has a broken version)

Thanks for this package [got my vote]. Used it to install Vivado 2019.2 on Manjaro 18.1.4 (using Pamac) after the Xilinx unified installer did not work (allegedly supports only a few distros). Verified functionality with Arty A7 FPGA dev board. Had to tweak the package file (obviously due to the different version => different hash). Also, libfakeroot was not found and I specified the absolute path to work around it. Added manual decompression of the tar.gz archive. As pointed out by the package file, the archive is rather big (26.5 GiB) and installation failed at the beginning because of the available disk space (had 150GiB in total); enlarged partition to work around this.

Package currently doesn't build due to a makepkg bug. As soon as lands in a release, I can update it to 2019.2.

@xiretza: that may explain. i built it directly under host env containing xorg, so my builds had while your build did not. but that's just my guess.

and it took me too much time to build vivado... so i do not want to build it again until the next version. i will give a feedback at the next version if you made some patches, or a workaround patch if you did not.

@heliochronix: cheers, the package now includes desktop files and udev rules!

@xiretza: I sent you a patch file via email. Hope it helps!

@xw258: can't reproduce, it builds just fine in a clean base-devel chroot without libxtst.

@heliochronix: could you send me a patch file? AUR comments break formatting a little.
