No, you did not miss anything. I was …

It is fixed now, thanks for reporting!

I'm unable to run SameBoy since version 0.14. Running "sameboy" will result in a segmentation fault, and attempting to open any ROM ("sameboy ~/Games/") will fail and show the following error.

"Could not open boot ROM: No such file or directory."

Does anyone know why this is happening? I feel like I'm missing something simple... >_<

The easiest way to build in a clean chroot is to use extra-x86_64-build instead of makepkg (or your friendly AUR helper, if you use one). You can read the details here.

You are right xdg-utils is not necessary, at least not with 0.14.1.

How do I build it in a chroot? I've never tried that before. xdg-utils shouldn't be necessary, it's probably enough to give make a FREEDESKTOP=true. I think he only checks for xdg-open because he would use xdg-desktop-menu etc. if DESTDIR is not set.

And there is 0.14.1 available (fixes a regression and now copies the .desktop file)

thanks for the pointer. You should probably add xdg-utils to makedepends, because make install is only available when xdg-open is available too. Right no sameboy-git does not build in clean chroot because of this.

Please evaluate switching to make install and using the newly added icons (new dependency hicolor-icon-theme) and a .desktop file (showing up in start menues; connected with file types .gb/.sgb and .cgb/.gbc). I just added all that to sameboy-git
