Errors while building:

No package 'retro-gtk-0.12' found
No package 'tracker-sparql-2.0' found

The .install file is no longer needed as pacman has post-upgrade hooks to take care of updating the icon cache.

This is missing some dependecies. Not sure what, as I haven't had time to look into what packages are needed:

configure: error: Package requirements (
glib-2.0 >= 2.38.0
) were not met:

No package 'retro-gtk-0.10' found

@electricprism check the instructions on the upstream URL, there is a "Documentation" section explaining how to add your games.

I have no idea how to add games to Gnome Games, or tell it that I'm using a Dual Shock 4 or X360 controller.

I'm very confused if anyone knows thanks.

@dsboger I believe that is on purpose and retro-1.0 is specific to retro-gtk.

I can install and play games OK with this, but I had to do some manual symlinking in order for it to find libretro cores. GNOME Games expects cores to be under /usr/lib/retro-1.0/plugins, but current arch libretro core packages install them under /usr/lib/libretro/. Also, the naming does not match. For example, the bsnes cores are named bsnes_*, while GNOME Games expects Am I missing something, like a symlink package, or is that some bleeding edge issue (i.e. should I look for retro-gtk-git or libretro-bsnes-git, etc.)?

Thanks for your efforts!

This -git package builds again with the upgrade of retro-gtk to 0.8. Also, created a stable version of this package which is hopefully less volatile:

I can't get this to build right now. There's some moving/merging going on with retro-gtk and retro-gobject. Perhaps a stable gnome-games package is in order?

...welp, I can't get the tagged version (3.21.91) to build either. I suppose we'll just have to wait it out.
