@ridge: Same problem here. Never had this problem with GitHub...

For some reason I got:

==> Retrieving sources...
  -> Cloning EmulationStation git repo...
Cloning into bare repository '/home/arkarian/.cache/yay/emulationstation-git/EmulationStation'...
fatal: unable to connect to[0:]: errno=Connection timed out

==> ERROR: Failure while downloading EmulationStation git repo
 -> error downloading sources: emulationstation-git 
         context: exit status 1

But changing git:// to git+https:// in the PKGBUILD fixed it for me.

For anyone getting an instant segmentation fault upon launch, this is a known bug:

You have to copy the resources folder from the EmulationStation repository to ~/.emulationstation/resources.

Fix for string issues (gcc 10 related?)

I had the exact same error as you. Checking what emulationstation does with strace, I found out that, for some bizarre reason, the directory where emulationstation searches for fonts and settings is /emulationstation/:

stat("/emulationstation/.emulationstation/es_systems.cfg", 0x7ffd5e1c9280) = -1 ENOENT (Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden) stat("/emulationstation/resources/mamenames.xml", 0x7ffd5e1c8ea0) = -1 ENOENT (Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden) stat("/emulationstation/resources/window_icon_256.png", 0x7ffd5e1c8d20) = -1 ENOENT (Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden) stat("/emulationstation/resources/opensans_hebrew_condensed_regular.ttf", 0x7ffd5e1c8c60) = -1 ENOENT (Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden)

Creating a symlink /emulationstation/ to the source directory, in my case (MANJARO: /var/tmp/pamac-build-[USERACCOUNT]/emulationstation-git/src/EmulationStation) and /emulationstation/.emulationstation to /home/[USERACCOUNT]/.emulationstation fixes the problem for me.

Obviously, this is a very hacky workaround. Some directory settings are messed up. Maybe you have an idea on how to fix that at compile time?

Nevermind, I managed to compile it from git directly and it works.

I switched to Raspbian for my RPi, so I have no motivation in further maintaining the package. Sorry about that.

I still cannot get the git version to work, I get this error :

lvl0: Error - File type unknown! lvl0: CECInput::mAdapter->DetectAdapters failed emulationstation: /home/archlinux/.cache/yay/emulationstation-git/src/EmulationStation/es-core/src/resources/Font.cpp:17: Font::FontFace::FontFace(ResourceData&&, int): Assertion `!err' failed. zsh: abort (core dumped) emulationstation

The non-git version works fine, but the scraper does not work.

Can you add the desktop entry like the non-git one?
