Thanks for the comment.
You could probably report the bug on Mantis [1] or do a pull request with that fix on github [2].

I am having difficulties with the vcmi Launcher. I am getting this error.

process 12666: arguments to dbus_connection_ref() were incorrect, assertion "connection->generation == _dbus_current_generation" failed in file dbus-connection.c line 2686.
This is normally a bug in some application using the D-Bus library.
D-Bus not built with -rdynamic so unable to print a backtrace

The problem doesn't appear when it is launched with root.
This seems to be the same problem as mupen64 described in [1] - It is said that if Qt is build without the SDL2 support it works. The package works for ubuntu and fedora (it just prints errors) but it crashes for Arch and Gentoo.

I made the link with SDL as well, nevertheless I was only able to locate the problem to sdldisplayquery.cpp in the function getDisplays(). I am able to use the launcher if I comment the lines:

if(SDL_Init(SDL_INIT_VIDEO))
return QStringList("default display");

Another solution is to replace the whole function by:
return QStringList("default display");

Hey, can you please make a vcmi-latest-bin or something that uses precompiled debs from here: https://launchpad.net/~vcmi/+archive/ubuntu/ppa ? It would be a lot easier than compiling the whole thing everytime I want to check something new.

[Bump to version r4845.e529ac6-1]. The PKGBUILD was cleaned up.

@gabipurcaru: I don't know if it will be working properly on a Raspberry Pi 2. Here [1] are described
most recent attempts in this regard. If you properly run vcmi on a Raspberry Pi 2 then I will add it to
the supported architectures.

Why is this package available only for i686 and x86_64? I'd like to play it on my Raspberry Pi 2, and according to this[0], it should work just fine.

[Bump to version r4382.dc9082d-1]. I added minizip dependency and updated the installation instructions.

[Update without bump the pkgver]. Set MAKEFLAGS="-j1" in the PKGBUILD in order to avoid running out of
memory during compilation, because some people have problems with exceeding their memory during compilation
with more than one job. Better safe than sorry. This change doesn't affect the package (only compilation)
so I didn't bump the pkgver to avoid recompilation for other people.
