@toeshred Thank you for finding out this! Starting with this issue, I stumbled upon this pull request that seems to be fixing it I will try. I will try to make a patch with it, but I'm not able to do it now.

@postblue The problem is upstream. I compiled from the github source and same problem. I fixed it by following 'bsinky' instructions from here:

Basically it just needs the resources directory to be put into .emulationstation, otherwise the last resort is to check the src directory where it was originally compiled from. I did the 'git checkout 3adadc9' in a new clone of ES and copied the data/resources folder into my .emulationstation, and it worked.

@toeshred Indeed, launcher is linking to source directory (where it was built) instead of package directory. But I don't know how to fix this, Cmake seems to link itself to the directory where it was built.

As of the last update, this program no longer launches:

lvl0: Error - File type unknown!

@ShayBox This package has always followed the fork from RetroPie, which developpement is more active than the original project. I would change the package description accordingly in the next release.

The upstream url is wrong, it should be set to the original project not a fork for the rpi

boost-libs updated from 1.68 to 1.69 and is now causing an error when running emulationstation for me.

"emulationstation: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

EDIT: I just needed to delete my AUR cache and recompile.
