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?

  • You can definitely create a snap with 16.04 libs in it, give it a try. – Kyle Nov 19 '18 at 20:34
  • Use the Ubuntu Tutorial and the guide for C/C++ snaps in the documentation. Fork this to make a GitHub repo for your progress and track your progress. Also post here with your request and link to your repo (or state your intent to snap that). – Ads20000 Nov 24 '18 at 20:12
