I got the installer from epsxe’s website and followed this tutorialePSXe on Linux HOWTO It is the 32 bit version. Yes I did try to install the missing library but I think it is too old as I can only find libgtk2.0 and higher. If anyone has any insight in this matter I would appreciate it.
That’s very old software, at least from 2003… back then GTK2 was still a child, and nowadays we are using already GTK3!.. I wouldn’t go that way… the best solution I see is the following:
Add Emulators Repository:
zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Emulators/openSUSE_11.4/Emulators.repo
Install an alternative emulator like pcsx-df:
zypper in pcsx-df
Please note I don’t know the software, I only know it’s an emulator available for 11.4 for Sony Playstation (for which you might require stuff like the PSX BIOS, which can’t be distributed for obvious reasons).
As for the emulator you suggest, I would forget it because there a huge chance it will never work (like 99%).
I really did not want to resort to using wine…I will if I have to but I would rather get something to work on linux natively. I have tried setting up epsxe, pcsx-df, and pSX at someone elses suggestion an none of them are working… I think I might be at that “last resort” step out of frustrations…
You are using 11.4 (Gnome, I imagine?) so GTK2+ is still relevant…
If you installed the library by that name and still have the issue, install the dev package for it. It contains a lot of backwards compatibility stuff that might let epsxe run. Late answer as hell, sure, but hope this helps
