The Desktop application doesn't work; it does nothing for me. Trying to start from the CLI I got a bunch of unexpected issues:

$ opendune
opendune.ini file not found.
Cannot initialise files. Does ./data/ directory exist ?

I have to create the ~/.config/opendune/opendune.ini folder and the ~/.config/opendune/data/ folder and change directory to the ~/.config/opendune/ to get rid of those errors.

Then, I get:

No valid MIDI output ports.
  Please install and start Timidity++ like: timidity -iA

Did you copy the Dune2 1.07eu data files into the data directory ?

So I install timidity++ and run it; which fixes the first part of that message. I am still a little stuck on that last bit. I have skimmed the docs on the project's page and have been looking for "data" files without luck so far.

Missing gendesk dependency, once I installed it I can build the game

The file opendune.desktop is missing, also it's reference in PKGBUILD.

@MrSmith1974 Presumably the package that provides "SetFile".

And what dependency is missing?

Probably a missing dependency?

I think the directory of the data files needs to be changed, I had to adjust it to /usr/share/games/dune2 Also I think (not really an expert) that deleting the data files from the dune2-data package is not really a good practice, as you'll strip the other package of its files. Probably that should be a build dependency?

It builds fine with SDL in a clean chroot. But you're right, the build system seems to prefer SDL2 if present.

I have moved the package to use SDL2. I think I had settled for SDL because there was an issue with SDL2 (missing sound at runtime?). Please test and report.

Doesn't build... i have all dependencies installed. fatal error: SDL_image.h: No such file or directory

But i have sdl & sdl2, so I was able to fix by also installing sdl2_image. So it seems if you have sdl2, you must also have sdl2_image installed.

Also, the code seems to indicate it wants SDL2, not SDL. If that's correct, please adjust the dependencies to sdl2 & sdl2_image.

Updated with several changes: - install in /usr/bin instead of /opt - correctly find data files - add missing dependencies - minor fixes
