Rstudio install

I want to use rstudio, but I found many options on AUR, including rstudio-desktop-bin , rstudio-desktop , rstudio-desktop-git , and so on, which should I choose and whats the difference?

It depends on what you want:

rstudio-desktop-bin >> you install the binary that someone has build
rstudio-desktop >> you build it yourself on your machine from the latest stable source code
rstudio-desktop-git >> you build it yourself from the latest commits in the git repository

You could click on the view PKGBUILD link for each and compare. Especially between the bin and the others.


Basically this. I went with rstudio-desktop-bin myself because it was quick to install.

Thanks, I went to that in the end :slight_smile:
