    Personally I found this to be really useful. Goodness knows what Arch AUR is, but a casual google failed to bring up anything easy to use regarding ECM. So nice work Naxil!

    For anyone who needs instructions, this works in linux mint:

    1. Unzip to a folder
    2. Put the .ecm file you want to convert in the docs folder
    3. Right click the whitespace in the docs folder
    4. Click "open in terminal"
    5. Type: ./unecm inputfile.ecm outputfile.bin
    6. Profit

    Is the configure/make/make install chain considered sorcery nowadays?

    These are also in the Debian repo.

    EDIT: don't get me wrong, it's nice of you to offer that kind of service, but one of the main benefits of using a Linux distribution is the paket manager that offers exactly this, precompiled binaries that are ready to install.
