    GUI for Mupen? Also, is there a way to get Mupen64plus to go fullscreen?

    I have been running Mupen64Plus through Terminal. Is there an actual GUI Interface (not terminal) for this?

    Also, can't get it to go fullscreen any tips there?

    There is a great GUI for Mupen64Plus out there and it's called M64Py.

    If you want Mupen to go fullscreen, there is a terminal command for it and you can even choose the resolution. I prefer using a launcher to handle that, however, since it's much faster. This is what mine looks like encase you want to create custom launchers for each of your games.

    Code:
    mupen64plus --fullscreen --resolution(640x480) '/host/Users/Jonathan/My Games/Nintendo 64/Legend of Zelda - Ocarina of Time.z64'
    Don't forget that there are tons of other commands for Mupen64Plus as well : http://code.google.com/p/mupen64plus...UIConsoleUsage

(Since that's always faster than figuring out what went wrong over something this complicated.) I had to reinstall Xscreensaver for whatever reason, but it's fine now. XD

    EDIT : Forgot to mention the package I got was from PlayDEB, or GetDEB, can't remember which. Either way, if CuteMupen is still in the Software Center, it's a much safer bet than a dated third-party package for Lucid Lynx.

    This installed and worked fine on my system, but it doesn't launch Mupen when loading a disk image for me. Maybe M64Py doesn't like x64 CPUs or can't find my binary of Mupen64Plus, I don't know for sure why it's not working for me. I hope the topic creator over here doesn't bump into the same problem, having a GUI for this emulator is quite handy for quickly configuring things without a text editor.
