I can reproduce the issue of invisible 3D plots described on the stackexchange website. I also have an issue where the text on the frame of Plot3D is not rendered well, which I think also just started with mathematica 12.1. I do not know how to fix either issue. bryango, you should consider reporting this to Wolfram.

I'm using mathematica 12.1 (installed March 19) on arch linux with KDE, a 4k screen, and intel GPU. I last updated my packages on May 1st.

JP-Ellis, where did this list of optional dependencies come from? For example, why is intel-mkl, freetype2, gmp, libssh2, openssl on the list? I think Mathematica is bundled with these libraries (and probably many of the others) in /opt/Mathematica/SystemFiles/Libraries/Linux-x86-64/

Below is my list of optional dependencies:

@bryango From the log, I would start with installing the Qt dependencies. Not sure which exactly is the culprit, but that's my first guess :) Thanks for the help!

bryango commented on 2020-05-20 04:07

@JP-Ellis Thank you very much for the hint! It is indeed a front end issue; the buggy commands works fine when executed from wolfram command line. However, the crash log seems to be less useful... I've put it here: https://pastebin.com/k8hUQNzL. I'll start checking optional dependencies; it might take some time though.

Update: I've checked, I got all your dependencies, and more... Maybe the issue lies in the packages that you do not have... I'll check later!

JP-Ellis commented on 2020-05-20 03:29

@bryango I can't replicate this issue on my end so I'm going to guess this is an issue due to a missing optional dependency.

Can you do two things:

  1. Can you launch mathematica from the command line, cause it to crash, and tell me if there's any indication as to which library might be the culprit?

  2. If the above doesn't help at all, can you check which dependency you are missing that I have installed. You can check the optional dependencies you have with pacman -Qi mathematica (the ones I have installed are below). Once we have narrowed down which package, I'll make sure to give an explicit description to inform others what the dependency is for.

I don't intend to make it a required dependency because I suspect this is an issue purely related to the GUI and thus a server installation with no GUI would not have the issue.

Running Plot3D[..., MeshStyle -> Opacity[0.3]] crashes my 12.0 with segmentation fault and produces an empty graph in 12.1. The latter is described in https://mathematica.stackexchange.com/q/221600; it seems to suggest that this issue is Arch (or maybe Manjaro) specific. I am currently using Manjaro 20.0.1.

Curiously, my 12.0 install worked fine before; it only broke after some recent system upgrades. Therefore, I suspect that these issues are, again, triggered by some conflicts between mathematica & system libraries. Has anyone encountered similar bugs with Plot3D[..., MeshStyle -> Opacity[0.3]] under 12+ on Arch or Manjaro? I would like to find a solution instead of going back to 11.3...

After upgrading libffi (3.2.1-4 -> 3.3-3) Mathematica 11.3 broke due to missing libffi.so.6.

Can simply link .so from /usr/bin or from another place in the Mathematica path it still exists:

# ln -sf /opt/Mathematica/SystemFiles/Links/MIMETools/LibraryResources/Linux-x86-64/libffi.so.6 /opt/Mathematica/SystemFiles/FrontEnd/Binaries/Linux-x86-64/Mathematica/libffi.so.6

Any news on a PKGBUILD for the wolfram engine?

Hi, building 12.1 in a clean environment showed the need for the package inetutils at least as makedepends. Avahi might also be a good addition for the optdepends, since running the installer gives a warning that without avahi it will not use "kernel discovery features". The build does not fail without avahi, but it does without inetutils.

@hmenke Thanks - My licence expired with 11.3 so this is v. helpful.

For others with this issue, the problem arose with openmp 9.0.1-1 -> 9.0.1-2, so downgrading to 9.0.1-1 is also an option if that isn't required by another package on your system.
