<s> It seems this needs some libcec since a few commits back. Could you add that to (make)depends? </s>

Edit: I misread the error messages, the real issue seems to be this one:

CMake Error: The following variables are used in this project, but they are set to NOTFOUND.
Please set them or make sure they are set and tested correctly in the CMake files:

Can the resources directory at least be copied to somewhere in /usr/share so that those of us with automated AUR apps don't have to re-download the source after installation? Maybe with a note saying to copy it over so that people who haven't read this page still know what's going on.

Can you update the source for "git://" to "https+git://" please? (to avoid clashing with RPCS3 and AFAIK "https+git" is the typically used proto anyway).

Temporary fix: Copy [tarball directory]/src/EmulationStation/resources to ~/.emulationstation/

Unfortunately, this cannot be fixed by the pkgbuild itself right now, as per the issue linked below. An upstream change is needed to look for the resources folder in /usr/share or any other global location.

So far, no luck. Sorry.

Any update on this ?

I have the same error as @quellen. For some reason the path references the directory where the package was compiled. @darkshines do you have any progress?

Edit: By searching for this issue I've found an issue already reported about it:

It seems like most people just use RetroPie-Setup, which configures and builds emulationstation and additionally copies some resources to the config directory of ES. I asked for a hint upstream and will fix the PKGBUILD as soon as I can get it to run myself.

I have the same problem as quellen.
