@furrykef Good point. Thank you for your suggestion. I think no one has created that file yet. That's why the package doesn't provide one. Contributions welcome.

I don't understand why this package doesn't add a desktop entry per the XDG Desktop Entry specification: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Desktop_entries

It'd make it a lot easier to launch the program.

Added, thank you @YoshiRulz.

Thank you! Don't forget to add Lua 5.4 (liblua) as a rundep.

About the missing games group while building in a clean chroot:

One workaround is to create the group in the clean chroot, or to fix the PKGBUILD like user @codl mentioned. I’m a bit reluctant to apply that fix though, because according to namcap, files in packages must belong to the root group. This is to maintain the integrity of the packaged files from modification.

If anyone has an idea how to fix that in an Arch-compliant way, feel free to comment.

I took over the package and updated the version to v2.9.1.

I was unable to run it successfully due to permissions errors, until I changed the ownership of the files in /opt/bizhawk to my user. (It was complaining about EmuHawkMono_laststdout.txt even though no such file existed.) Just being part of the games group was not enough.

Also, the Lua console doesn't run properly on version 2.8 but works if you modify the PKGBUILD to install 2.9.1 instead. (The only changes were the pkgver line and the sha512sums line.

sha512sum that worked for me for 2.9.1: bec7e558963416b3749ef558bc682d1a874a43df8fe3083224ec7c4c0326cdfea662ef5c604eea7c1743d2eeb13656ccf749f0cdb3a413f4985c4b305a95e742

This complains about the games group not existing and creates an empty package when building in a chroot, for example with aurutils.

Replacing -ggames with -g50 in the PKGBUILD seems to fix it.

CNR = Could Not Reproduce.

After a bit of tinkering, I got it working. I think I stupidly ran it as root before trying to add myself to the group, which caused the EmuHawkMono_laststdout.txt: Permission denied error, as the log files were owned by root:root and therefore not accessible by EmuHawkMono.sh when run as user. My bad on that one. A check to not run as root might stop other people from doing that, but I have no idea if that's warranted since it IS user error.

After that, however, I ran into the issue described here, despite being on Arch: https://github.com/TASEmulators/BizHawk/issues/1595 Moving "arch"| to the beginning of the same line as "debian"|"linuxmint"|"ubuntu"|"pop" seems to have fixed the issue.

P.S. What does "CNR" mean? I'm not familiar with the acronym. Also, thanks for your work not only maintaining this for Linux, but also specifically for the AUR package as well!
