gnome-hearts

#1

Maybe the good old game gnome-hearts would be a nice addition to the Manjaro repos. I remember playing this some years back in Ubuntu but I cannot find it in AUR.

I believe all that is needed can be found here: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/bionic/amd64/gnome-hearts/0.3-2.2

This is ancient software. It was dropped from Ubuntu 18.04 because of

unmaintained, depends on unmaintained libgnome
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/bionic/amd64/gnome-hearts

Something like that should not be part of the Manjaro repo.

#3

I think there are viable maintained alternatives like aisleriot.

Unless gnome-hearts has been updated and offers something that existing software does not it will be a "no" from me.

Aisleriot does not have a hearts game (very popular in some countries), but indeed gnome-hearts is very old and probably won't ever get updated.

It looks like as there is a gtk3 port in rust.

Since everybody can create projects on gitlab.gnome.org I don't know how reliable it is.

It can be build with cargo build --release --locked , which results in an working binary.
