2. ePSXe (PlaySTation 1)


To be able to run ePSXe on Ubuntu 12.04/Linux Mint 13, we need to install some dependencies required by the emulator. To do this, open the terminal and run the following commands:

- i386/32-bit

cd /tmp
wget -O libglib1.2ldbl_i386.deb http://goo.gl/8ghqY
sudo dpkg -i libglib1.2ldbl_i386.deb
wget -O libgtk1.2-common_all.deb http://goo.gl/snRd1
sudo dpkg -i libgtk1.2-common_all.deb
wget -O libgtk1.2_i386.deb http://goo.gl/HB04M
sudo dpkg -i libgtk1.2_i386.deb

- amd64/64-bit


cd /tmp
wget -O libglib1.2ldbl_amd64.deb http://goo.gl/ZEHVg
sudo dpkg -i libglib1.2ldbl_amd64.deb
wget -O libgtk1.2-common_all.deb http://goo.gl/snRd1
sudo dpkg -i libgtk1.2-common_all.deb
wget -O libgtk1.2_amd64.deb http://goo.gl/lxFZj
sudo dpkg -i libgtk1.2_amd64.deb

The current latest version of ePSXe for Linux is 1.6.0, you can install it with these commands:

wget -O epsxe160lin.zip http://goo.gl/RmKiF
sudo apt-get install unzip
