@leonardof: The path problem should be resolved in Using the github "archive" links to tags instead of "tarball".

@flying-sheep: No I am not experiencing that problem, rstudio works fine for me and I have been using it on a daily basis for months now...

The PKGBUILD doesn't build if there is old source around. Culprit is line 42:

cd "$srcdir/$_pkgname-$_pkgname-"*

i updated it.

don’t you experience the bug with the dialog windows? (i.e. that e.g. the “clear plots? [yes] [no]” window doesn’t respond to clicking a button)

I had the same problem and for me a rebuild of rstudio-desktop solved it.

I was also able to build the rstudio-desktop-1.0.136 using the PKGBUILD at

Latest boost-lib upgrade (1.62 -> 1.63) broke the package, as libboost_{thread,system,regex,iostreams,filesystem,date_time}.so.1.62.0 are not anymore on the system. Creating the symbolic links manually change this error by an undefined symbol one.

Is it just me?

With the current version, I get the following error message:

==> Starting package()...
CMake Error: Parse error in cache file /tmp/yaourt-tmp-sguyader/aur-rstudio-desktop/src/rstudio-rstudio-46c2013/CMakeCache.txt on line 410. Offending entry: Stopping at filesystem boundary (GIT_DISCOVERY_ACROSS_FILESYSTEM not set).

In the CMakeCache.txt file, line 410 is empty but the two preceding lines show this:
//Git Revision Hash
RSTUDIO_GIT_REVISION_HASH:STRING=fatal: Not a git repository (or any parent up to mount point /tmp)

I don't know if it's correct to do it, but I edited that last line and replaced the string starting by "fatal..." with "46c2013", and compilation could be resumed.

I noticed that HTML documents knitted from Rmd files do not use monospace fonts for code, although they should. The binary package rstudio-desktop-bin works as expected.

I had to edit the PKGBUILD to change line 66 to
to get this to compile.

Would it be possible to provide a ln from /usr/bin to /usr/lib/rstudio/bin/rstudio in the PKGBUILD?

very weird… do you have any program-specific settings? (Alt-F3 → More Actions → Special …)

I do get a normal title bar.

However, this package is still not very usable as the Yes/No/Cancel dialogs don’t work (They always behave as if you clicked “Cancel”, so you can’t clear plots or save the workspace and exit, you have to kill RStudio)
