This isn't working anymore, the github folder layout changed and no longer exists, and has been move to

It's still possible to install 5.8.7 or 5.9 with the command [sh -c "$(curl -Ls"] 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: 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:

(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 ( ).

All you need to get 5.0.3 working is to change the commit in the PKGBUILD to d462ca38724db65d7f92f3edbd16b6657291e420

Also the patch file is no longer required for compilation so that should be removed as well.

The GitHub link I posted earlier has an updated PKGBUILD now for anyone who's impatient.
