@ivanovp I modified your's PKGBUILD and it seems to work. There are couple of new lib32 deps. But on the end of installation I am getting following error:
Warning: Problem running post-install step. Installation may not complete
Error creating dynamic link
/opt/microchip/mplabx/v3.00.02-beta/mplab_ipe/mplab_ipe /usr/bin/mplab_ipe

It works when I install it manually but via makepkg not. Could anyone fix it?

Not sure which is the other package that installs it, but I had a conflict over /etc/udev/rules.d/99-jlink.rules

Identical file to the one I already had

@Manouchehri: you can fork this package and name it microchip-mplabx-beta-bin or whatever, this package contains the stable release.

Manouchehri commented on 2015-03-11 20:45

So v3.00 is out in beta, think this package should be updated or a new one created?

@Misio-it: thanks, fixed.

MPLABX IDE still not loads when default JDK is v8.
Just set properly the "jdkhome" variable in mplab_ide.conf to avoid this annoying problem.

Here is a patch to PKGBUILD that works for me.

@danwood76: Thanks for solving this mistery.

I have just done some testing and it appears the microchip installer also adds an additional 2 symlinks:

/usr/lib/ -> /opt/microchip/mplabcomm1_0_0/
/usr/lib/ -> /opt/microchip/mplabcomm1_0_0/

Adding these in to my fresh install makes my PICKit3 work again so I added this to my PKGBUILD, here is the diff:

@danwoon76: Thanks, I've fixed the symlinks.
However I had to install the using GUI to be able recognize PICkit 3. Something is still not perfect.
