README:

  1. You need to register on VMWare website to get the installer bundle;
  2. If the version changed, just change the `source=("xxxxx" "bootstrap" "config") line to match the file you have downloaded;
  3. Read the comments if you have a problem;
  4. If not resolved, add a comment :)

For those that may still be having issues getting this to work.

I downloaded the bundle from vmware to ~/Downloads

Edited PKGBUILD source file location. source=("file:///home/jcarter/Downloads/VMware-Remote-Console-10.0.6-14247266.x86_64.bundle" "bootstrap" "config")

Compilation was successful with a module failing to load. Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module" Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module"

The VMRC works well so it doesn't seem those modules are missed.

Note that you have to download the file yourself.

Seems like the url is wrong:

    curl: (3) URL using bad/illegal format or missing URL
==> ERROR: Failure while downloading file://VMware-Remote-Console-11.0.0-15201582.x86_64.bundle

Is there any way to install this alongside the Horizon Client AUR packages as well? When trying to install this after I've already installed the Horizon Client AUR packages I get conflicting files. Mainly a bunch of keymap files for different languages at /usr/lib/vmware/xkeymap/ (us101, us104, etc)

Edit... I just moved the old xkeymap folder to xkeymapold. Can't imagine it'll cause an issue, but I guess I'll find out soon enough.

@johnnybash Yea you are right... I updated the package :)

Thank you very much!

johnnybash commented on 2020-01-13 15:04

you missed to change the filename in the build section ;)

and pkgrel should be 1 (I think?!)

Thanks @fanjiang appreciate you taking the time to comment. A fair point as mentioned still pretty fresh on Arch so do appreciate the feedback.

I'll probably timeshift at some point and follow your advice.

I had a crack at swcarters comments prior but had no success, I'll give it another go probably a PEBCAK.

If I note any differences and come up with a more descriptive process on "what to do - for the inexperienced I might share it after you vet it."

@beanrod Please follow @swjcarter 's comments. In general DO NOT blindly use the vendor-provided installer. They are mostly designed for Ubuntu or RHEL systems and they do not provide a way to restore the changes if something goes wrong.

Just in case it helps someone else... I have managed to just downloaded and install the bundle directly from VMWare and install on Manjaro. chmod +x ./VMware-Remote-Console-11.0.0-15201582.x86_64.bundle sudo ./VMware-Remote-Console-11.0.0-15201582.x86_64.bundle for the System Location I entered "/etc/systemd/system/" I'm not 100% sure this is right for the location but it is working if someone whom knows better (I'm still fairly new to Arch) could correct me that would be great.

@ekkelett Note that the source tarballs are alway downloaded to the root folder instead of src.
