   Package name: gnome video arcade
Upstream Author: [Matthew Barnes <>]
            URL: []
        License: [GPL 3+.]
    Description: [a simple MAME front-end for the GNOME Desktop Environment]

It supports both the xmame and sdlmame  ports of MAME for GNU/Linux and
other UNIX-like operating systems, and can utilize third-party data
files like arcade history and game categories.

GNOME Video Arcade recognizes that the frontend is not the point; the
games are. As such, its chief design goal is to help you quickly find a
game to play and then get out of the way. Its purpose is not to help you
manage your ROM collection, nor to provide a confusing graphical
interface for MAME's plethora of configuration options.

Note from the bug reporter:
Besides this upstream is reactive ( working now on adding gtk 3.0
support ) and documentation is excellent. I have tested Gnome Video
Arcade and it works perfectly with MAME.
