I have just done some testing and it appears the microchip installer also adds an additional 2 symlinks:

/usr/lib/libSerialAccessLink.so -> /opt/microchip/mplabcomm1_0_0/libSerialAccessLink.so
/usr/lib/libUSBAccessLink.so -> /opt/microchip/mplabcomm1_0_0/libUSBAccessLink.so

Adding these in to my fresh install makes my PICKit3 work again so I added this to my PKGBUILD, here is the diff:

@danwoon76: Thanks, I've fixed the symlinks.
However I had to install the MPLABX-v2.30-linux-installer.sh using GUI to be able recognize PICkit 3. Something is still not perfect.

There are two symlinks that need creating/modifying to make the USB work with the new version

/etc/.mplab_ide/mchplinusbdevice -> /opt/microchip/mplabx/../mplabcomm1_0_0/mchplinusbdevice

/usr/local/lib/libmchpusb-1.0.so -> /opt/microchip/mplabx/../mplabcomm1_0_0/libmchpusb-1.0.so.0.0.0

pointing symlinks to "mplabcomm1_0_0" does not make usb work. "mplabcomm1_0_0" directory should be renamed to "mplabcomm1.0".

In the version v2.30 installer microchip have moved the USB library once again.

The new location is:

So the symlink from /etc/.mplab_ide/... is wrong again and USB will not work in the latest PKGBUILD.

@Misio-it: I've added jdk7-openjdk to dependencies. Thanks.

@aeroaks: Same behaviour here. The problem seems to be Java 8. A workaround is to start MPLABX IDE from console adding --jdkhome /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk/ as parameter or set it permanently within the configuration file (/opt/microchip/mplabx/mplab_ide/etc/mplabx.conf). This solved the issue for me.

@ivanop: Could you add a "sed" line to the installation script to set the jdkhome of MPLABX IDE as you did for MPLAB IPE? Seems that MPLABX suite requires JDK 7 (does not works with JDK 8 for me), what about to add it as an explicit dependency?

Splash Screen appears and then the command stops, no message in terminal also.

After installing the MPLABX-v2.20-linux-installer.run as root, Microstick II is shown in MPLABX. I have installed .tar.xz and MPLABX recognized the debugger too. So the installer does something differently with fakeroot/GUI mode.
