There are desktop files in /opt/Mathematica/SystemFiles/Installation/ , but I'm not sure how to install those.

Is it just me or does the package not contain icons, mime information, and *.desktop files?

The installer that's on my DVD is called MathInstaller. I downloaded the trial version from wolfram, and that installer is indeed named as you said. I got the following error
Unix/Installer/MathInstaller: line 1718: [: 0-ARCH: integer expression expected
However, I was able launch mathematica, and it seemed to work just fine.
Many thanks for the help.

@doubleslash: Is your installer CD meant for linux? And it should be a DVD!

could you please post step-by-step instructions on how to use this package to help install mathematica? My experience is that the installer script from Wolfram does not work with Arch, and when I open this package I don't know what to do with it. I'm new. Thanks.

Works like a charm, thanks!

Feanor12 commented on 2011-08-22 20:02 is not included in the package because mathematica isn't free - but there are some infos in the PKGBUILD
