I needed to install gtk2 to get this to build correctly. Please consider the changes that @blue995 suggested as well as adding gtk2 as a dependency.

So if you try to execute dolphin-emu-faster-melee and you receive the message #!/bin/sh /usr/share/dolphin-emu-faster-melee/dolphin-emu "$@": No such file or directory it's because of a false startup script at /usr/bin/dolphin-emu-faster-melee

First of all, you should create a user directory so that FM can save your settings. To do this execute these commands (Thanks to @awesome8x):

mkdir ~/.local/share/dolphin-emu-faster-melee
cp -r /usr/share/dolphin-emu-faster-melee/User/* ~/.local/share/dolphin-emu-faster-melee

To resolve the issue with the startup script you have to change it like this:

/usr/share/dolphin-emu-faster-melee/dolphin-emu -u ~/.local/share/dolphin-emu-faster-melee "$@"

After these changes everything should work as expected. Maybe the maintainer can consider to apply these fixes to the PKGBUILD

This isn't working anymore, the github folder layout changed and no longer exists, and has been move to

It's still possible to install 5.8.7 or 5.9 with the command [sh -c "$(curl -Ls"] though.

Since today Im getting the following error when starting dolphin-emu-faster-melee.

/usr/share/dolphin-emu-faster-melee/dolphin-emu: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I tried to downgrade miniupnpc but it says it breaks dependency.

Edit: Found the problem. dolphin-emu (from official repos) required the newer miniupnpc. Uninstalled dolphin-emu to fix it.

To fix the issue with saving settings, run these commands:

mkdir ~/.local/share/dolphin-emu-faster-melee

cp -r /usr/share/dolphin-emu-faster-melee/User/* ~/.local/share/dolphin-emu-faster-melee

Then from now on, launch with this command:

dolphin-emu-faster-melee -u ~/.local/share/dolphin-emu-faster-melee

5.9b of FasterMelee is out, updating install scripts now.

It seems like this package doesn't set up user config directories correctly, you're not able to save any settings (such as controller configurations).

Also, for some reason it doesn't create a .desktop shortcut.

updated to 5.8.7 using the script @ccl2of4 mentioned

ccl2of4 commented on 2017-10-16 04:35 (UTC)

At this point if anyone wants to play netplay it's probably easiest to just use

Unfortunately, I no longer have time to reliably maintain this PKGBUILD, and will be orphaning it. It appears that there are other members in the community who are more capable than I at maintaining the PKGBUILD with the latest faster-melee builds. Anyone who wishes to take over maintainance may do so, thanks.
