So if you try to execute dolphin-emu-faster-melee and you receive the message #!/bin/sh /usr/share/dolphin-emu-faster-melee/dolphin-emu "$@": No such file or directory it's because of a false startup script at /usr/bin/dolphin-emu-faster-melee

First of all, you should create a user directory so that FM can save your settings. To do this execute these commands (Thanks to @awesome8x):

mkdir ~/.local/share/dolphin-emu-faster-melee
cp -r /usr/share/dolphin-emu-faster-melee/User/* ~/.local/share/dolphin-emu-faster-melee

To resolve the issue with the startup script you have to change it like this:

#!/bin/sh
/usr/share/dolphin-emu-faster-melee/dolphin-emu -u ~/.local/share/dolphin-emu-faster-melee "$@"

After these changes everything should work as expected. Maybe the maintainer can consider to apply these fixes to the PKGBUILD

This isn't working anymore, the github folder layout changed and https://github.com/FasterMelee/FasterMelee-installer/raw/master/config/5.8.7-fmconfig.tar.gz no longer exists, and has been move to https://github.com/FasterMelee/FasterMelee-installer/raw/master/config/legacy/5.8.7-fmconfig.tar.gz.

It's still possible to install 5.8.7 or 5.9 with the command [sh -c "$(curl -Ls https://github.com/FasterMelee/FasterMelee-installer/raw/master/setup)"] though.

Since today Im getting the following error when starting dolphin-emu-faster-melee.

/usr/share/dolphin-emu-faster-melee/dolphin-emu: error while loading shared libraries: libminiupnpc.so.16: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I tried to downgrade miniupnpc but it says it breaks dependency.

Edit: Found the problem. dolphin-emu (from official repos) required the newer miniupnpc. Uninstalled dolphin-emu to fix it.

To fix the issue with saving settings, run these commands:

mkdir ~/.local/share/dolphin-emu-faster-melee

cp -r /usr/share/dolphin-emu-faster-melee/User/* ~/.local/share/dolphin-emu-faster-melee

Then from now on, launch with this command:

dolphin-emu-faster-melee -u ~/.local/share/dolphin-emu-faster-melee

5.9b of FasterMelee is out, updating install scripts now.

It seems like this package doesn't set up user config directories correctly, you're not able to save any settings (such as controller configurations).

Also, for some reason it doesn't create a .desktop shortcut.

updated to 5.8.7 using the script @ccl2of4 mentioned

At this point if anyone wants to play netplay it's probably easiest to just use

Unfortunately, I no longer have time to reliably maintain this PKGBUILD, and will be orphaning it.

It appears that there are other members in the community who are more capable than I at maintaining the PKGBUILD with the latest faster-melee builds.

Anyone who wishes to take over maintainance may do so, thanks.

I believe the upgrade might be missing some new .ini files. When I right click>Properties>Gecko Codes, the entries differ from the ones I should get according to the Anther's Ladder guide:

https://www.smashladder.com/guides/view/272o/melee-dolphin-build-fastermelee-5-fm5

(see the picture under "FM5 Netplay Safe Kill Music Code"). Indeed, the file GALE01r2.ini in this package is different from the one in the "official" Linux Faster Melee Installer ( https://github.com/Ptomerty/FasterMelee-installer ).
