It doesn't show me greek characters in right side buttons, it show some rectangles. In worksheet greek characters works.

Thanks tomracing, I've got it now. You made me look to my .makepkg.conf file and I have there a line [# BUILDDIR=/tmp/makepkg]. I had to comment out this line and now I can get smath installed trough yaourt. I do not really understand why smath does not work with my BUILDDIR in tmp but other yaourt stuff works.

xxx, sorry i cannot reproduce your error. I've had no issue with installing smath on a clean manjaro vm. only installed based-devel yaourt then yaourt -S smath got no errors there. therefore pretty sure it is not the package.

Thanks tomracing for looking into it. I tried to install smath trough yaourt on 3 different computers with the same error, '../smath.desktop': No such file or directory. I got it to install by first cloning the official URL and overwriting the files there with the files so kindly provided by Jack here The official package does not work. I am using Manjaro, I do not think that will make any difference though.

Sorry to hear that it is not working for you XXX. however I've just tried building it using several popular aur helpers and all worked fine. If you build by downloading the pkgbuild file directly, then please note that in the root are several other files that will be needed to install.

If after thay it still doesn't work let me know.

Any bad package should be moved out, in a sandbox or something. For quite a while now I am not able to install this one.

install: cannot stat '../smath.desktop': No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package(). Aborting... ==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build smath.

great, it worked for me also this morning. Thanks for testing.
the pkgbuild is cleaned up now and as far as I can tell the files don't even need mentioning in the source.
Should be good to go for the future and much easier to update.

thanks again for the solution.

Now uncomment the sources (make sure the braces are correct) and it is complete ;)

You can try my version from yesterday here:
