Got same error...

make: *** [Makefile:152: all] Error 2

With a bit of backtracking...

BUILD FAILED /tmp/makepkg/rstudio-desktop/src/rstudio-rstudio-f1ac345/src/gwt/build.xml:98: Error running javac compiler

So my javac binary decided to disappear even with jdk-openjdk installed, huh? Turns out I still had wrong Java version set as default and after executing

# archlinux-java set java-8-openjdk

ant was finally willing to build gwt and the Rstudio installation was complete.

I got this version of RStudio working following these steps. Hope it helps other folks out there

I can't get this version of rstudio-desktop to work properly on my fully updated Arch system. When I try to run it, the interface doesn't come up properly (no panes and can't open files) and I get this error message:

Qt WebEngine resources not found at /usr/lib/qt/libexec. Trying fallback directory... The application MAY NOT work.

Even though the package is properly installed:

[pgoetz@frog ~]$ pacman -Q qt5-webengine
qt5-webengine 5.14.0-1

Maybe this is another side effect of the upgrade from Qt 5.12 to Qt 5.14?

Getting the same error as @Xentec

However using archlinux-java set java-8-openjdk doesn't solve it.

Thank you @dviktor, currently building a package with your changes.

I assume patchelf is a make dependency.

Just rechecked dependencies on GitHub. They states that the following list should be satisfied:


Also it seems like pandoc is optional dependency and needed only for RMarkdown support so you can move it to optdepends

Does anyone know, how to fix an issue with rstudio not starting when offline? The only message I see when running the program, is that it can't connect with localhost.

I havent played with firewall setting (manjaro linux) and I already tried deleting and recreating all profile, settings file.

Issue is still there

1.2.5001-2 compiles!

I actually found the fix for the first one too, but overlooked that there’s two places in that file where they compare the version. I also found a patch for the second one!

Looking at the compiler errors, I found the following issues:

  • Tries to use Boost.Signals, which was removed in Boost 1.69.0
  • Tries to use boost::asio::ip::tcp::resolver::get_io_service, which was removed in Boost 1.70.0

I dug around in the CMake files for a bit, and the signals issue can be resolved by applying a small patch that changes two version comparisons to VERSION_LESS 1.69.0 instead of LESS 106900.

The ASIO issue however is more difficult, as I am unable to even find the error location in the thousands of lines of compiler output (thanks, Boost). Mainly because I don't get actual line numbers for the errors, just a stack of header files showing which template instantiation went wrong.

I've tried rstudio-desktop-git and it compiled fine for me. Thus, I guess this is an issue which has already been fixed upstream but is not yet available in a tagged release.

I can’t get it to compile again, can anyone help?
