Development of EmulationStation seems to have stopped, and I can't get it to install on Ubuntu 18.04. There is a LaunchPad PPA, and on the site it has this message:
EmulationStation upstream is DEAD (there's no maintenance there anymore), build is broken on 17.04, GO AWAY.
So, I have low hopes for getting EmulationStation to install via
apt. Would it be possible to get EmulationStation in a snap format? Can I package my own snap with Ubuntu 16.04 libraries in it? (or whatever distro works)
What about Flatpak or AppImage?
