gnuboy won't start

Hi all,

I installed gnuboy to play some gameboy games. But unfortunally it wont start.
I cant find it at emulators or recently installed in the start menu, when I type gnuboy in the console I get: If ‘gnuboy’ is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
cnf gnuboy

Have any of u had the same problem? does someone know how to fix it?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Matunopsis,

This is because gnuboy hasn’t got any graphical interface to start and open rom files from.
It can only be done from the command line.

This is because the command isn’t gnuboy but one of these:


Not 100% sure but I think the difference between them is that the one uses the framebuffer to render the games, the other uses SDL and the last one X.
Note that you need to use any of these commands like this:

sdlgnuboy /<path>/<to>/<romfile>

Good luck!:wink:

Thanks edward, It works now
