Post How do I install ZSNES on linux?
I have kubuntu 10.04 which I'm still learning and am confused as to how to use all the extra downloads and such that I need. Can anyone walk me through please? Thanks.

Code:
sudo apt-get install zsnes
enter your account password


or go to package manager or synaptic or whatever and install it from there. Those're usually easy to figure out.

is zsnes even in their repo ? i doubt that for some reason since there's no 64 bit version and multilib is a bit meh to setup with libao being stupid.

Last I checked it was in 1 release for 32-bit, missing in the next, and in both 32-bit and 64-bit in the third. Its a fucking crapshot.

If you are running a 64 bit OS, download the binaries here:

And make sure to read the link given in the first post.

You have to add an icon on your launcher bar (type in zsnes as the launch command). You can also run zsnes directly through the command line.

It isn't in your Applications > Game menu? Looks like the packages installs a zsnes.desktop file in /usr/share/applications should it should be in your main menu already. Otherwise, what above said.
