Probably unrelated to my previous comment:

When trying to install 12.0.0 using makechrootpkg (with the help of aur helper "aurutils" using aur build -c), the installation seems to be "unable to determine the pacakge manageer used by the system..." and leaves installation files on my /opt/Mathematica/SystemFiles/Installation under RPM and DEB formats. I guess I can just convert one of them to tar and install it directly.

In the newest update (Mathematica 12.0.0, AUR update time 2019-09-11 23:52), the prepare function contains the following line:

warning ".. 18 GiB of space for makepkg, and ..."

Since around the "makepkg" is a pair of backticks, I am suspecting that this invokes another "makepkg" process and causes the "no PKGBUILD" error that I have been repeatedly for my multiple attempts.

Edit: confirmed. The back ticks caused the prepare() function to fail, and thus I was unable to proceed in makechrootpkg. For some reason makepkg, even though it still shows the error message, continues to run the script.

@Firnen Read the PKGBUILD, there is an explanation on how to obtain that file and where to place it.

A file appears to be missing for the build.

@JP-Undercover The issue you have is most likely because you are running out of space. Unfortunately, Mathematica's installer doesn't check for available space and if your drive fills up, Mathematica simply doesn't install create all the files (hence why wolframscript is missing). With the recent updates, I think you'll actually need more than 18GiB (I think the latest version needs 26.4GiB of free space unpack, install and then re-pack everything).

@JP-Ellis i have at least 18GB avalible on my system, i'm trying to edit the PKGBUILD by using yay --editmenu mathematica but it's not working. I've deleted all the cache and tried again, same error shows up, i'm trying to install normally by simply using yay -S mathematica.

EDIT: Installing using yay -S mathematica shows that i in fact don't have enough space, disregard what i said it turns out it was just me being incompetent, thanks for the tip!

@JP-Undercover Please make sure the directory in which the package archive is being built has enough space.

It shouldn't be installed in your actual system, but is taking up a lot of space in /home/undercover/.cache/yay/mathematica/ in your case.

JP-Undercover commented on 2019-09-11 11:20

Installing this package on Manjaro ended up with this:

Installation failed. See
/home/undercover/.cache/yay/mathematica/pkg/mathematica/opt/Mathematica/InstallErrors.

  -> Errors related to 'xdg-icon-resource' and 'xdg-desktop-menu' are to be expected during Mathematica's installation.
  -> Fixing symbolic links
rm: cannot remove 'wolframscript': No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

Error making: mathematica

The file InstallErrors is empty.

Any news about the Wolfram Engine AUR package?

JP-Ellis commented on 2019-06-09 00:28

@bryango Thanks! I've updated the PKGBUILD. Note that I have not updated the release number as this is such a minor change and most people will get this at the next update.
