From what I see, config files are put into ~/.config/emulationstation

So all I did is:
$ cd
$ ln -s .config/emulationstation .emulationstation

Same here, isnt creating a config file on first start and complains about it.

Same here. Maybe file a bug?

Does this actually work for anyone? Running it (without an existing config folder) just complains that it can't load the config (which obviously doesn't exist yet as I've not run the program) and it exits.

Is it broken currently?

@Enverex sorry about that, I've updated the url.

I agree with OJaksch, probably time to move over to Herdingers' fork. Aloshi's doesn't even compile for me anymore.

EDIT: My mistake, you have, but the "url" field hasn't been updated.

Due to long inactivity at Aloshis Emulationstation it might have some need at some time to switch over to Herdingers fork: <>.

I had emulationstation segfault on startup if you have a config file. (Although nobody else running Arch could seem to reproduce this)

I found a workaround by downloading the Windows zip for EmulationStation, and dropping the themes folder in ~/.emulationstation. This caused it to work fine.

Additional note for whoever might read this : a warning at the beginning, but loosely related only

this could be related : missing the instruction to effectively link against libboost_locale lib, but ... no idea where to fix it within cmake
