Tested right now and it works, thanks university for the key. Kjslag it's right, please add the old install file.

kjslag commented on 2012-12-01 03:58

i'd imagine that the old install file would work:


post_install() {
update-desktop-database -q
gtk-update-icon-cache -f -q -t /usr/share/icons/hicolor
update-mime-database usr/share/mime &>/dev/null

post_upgrade() {
post_install $1

post_remove() {
gtk-update-icon-cache -f -q -t /usr/share/icons/hicolor

It appears there is no mathematica.install file?

Feanor12 commented on 2012-11-30 22:03

Done. Please test it. I can't :)

Here's the PKGBUILD for mathematica 9. Please update?

I can't update to Mathematica 9, because I don't own a licence.
Please feel free to update it yourself.

maybe you ran out of space.
I'm not sure but isn't tmp located in the RAM.
Try building it with 10GB of free space.
Use "df -h" to determine a place with enough space.
Go to this place via 'cd path-to-place' and build it like in my last post.
If you sym-link the .sh file you don't need to copy it (save some space)

Thank you for looking into this.

No, I did not touch the PKGBUILD.
I run yaourt -S mathematica
Before I proceed with the installation, I copy the .sh file into tmp/yaourt-tmp-user/aur-mathematica/
That's it. After that I hit install and I am presented with that error message.

It seems to work on my end:
#yaourt -G mathematica
#cd mathematica
#ln -s ../
#pacman -U mathematica-8.0.4-2-x86_64.pkg.tar

There are some lines in the installation Output to indicate the directory creation.
Type the directory path in which the Wolfram Mathematica script(s) will be
created, or press ENTER to select /usr/local/bin:
> /tmp/mathematica/pkg/usr/bin

Did you change the PKGBUILD? Your error means that there is no /usr/bin directory in your pkg directory. It is thrown by the cd command on line 33.
