There's a new release available that should fix the problem mentioned in my earlier comment:

https://github.com/EDCD/EDMarketConnector/releases/tag/Release%2F5.11.1

There seems to be a problem with 5.11.0 on linux, EDMC seems to try to write to its install location which obviously fails on linux without root. See this GitHub issue

Additionally, edmarketconnector.desktop has a Category that doesn't work; it should be "Game", not Games, see the spec

5.10 is out for some time, and seems to include a change to the included FDevIDs files. To avoid a popup asking for manual intervention, we could switch the downloaded artifact to one that includes them. Proposed PKGBUILD diff for 5.10.1:

This has been working great! Thank you!

This package is missing the tk dependency, which is required for tkinter to work. My friend had a system without tk installed previously, and this package would not work until they installed it directly.
