    I'm a bit unsure of the status of CD32 emulation in the older UAE versions, but FS-UAE supports CD32 emulation (same CD32 emulation code as WinUAE).

    I run it myself on Ubuntu (just note that with 12.04 and 3D-accelerated desktop, you may need to run FS-UAE in fullscreen or with the option --video-sync=off to get good performance due to a Compiz issue).

    If you try it out and have any problems, just let me know.

    Re: Amiga CD32 for Ubuntu ?

    Just out of curiosity, can FS-USE open zipped ADF files? or so they need to be unzipped?

    --edit, never mind, checkecked myself..it does However is there any way to choose a disk to load without editing the config file every time? It never lists the adf files (zipped or unzipped) in the default folder...

    Yes, and it also supports gzipped ADF (adz) as well as IPF and DMG disk images.

    Not currently, no. FS-UAE is designed to be started with (for instance) a configuration file per game (either created manually, or created on-demand by a frontend / external configuration program). You can give the path to the configuration as a parameter to fs-uae.

    I am also working on a graphical launcher, which will remove the need to manually fiddle with configuration files. This post has a screenshot and more information: http://eab.abime.net/showpost.php?p=...&postcount=197

    There is also an unofficial FS-UAE launcher/GUI for Linux here (which supports all FS-UAE options, according to the author):

    Hi, FS-UAE 2.0 now includes FS-UAE Launcher, a convenient frontend for FS-UAE, so there is no need to edit configuration files any more.

    FS-UAE + FS-UAE Launcher are now even available from an Ubuntu PPA :

    I agree! FS-UAE 2.0 + Launcher is probably the best and most convenient way to play Amiga Games on your Ubuntu Box.

    is it into apt-get ?

    or one must get the debs.

    which software/game would you advice that work with it?


    Does it work with console/bash for mythtv setup with lirc and remote controler?

    You need to add the PPA and then you can install it via apt-get. Which only takes 3 Terminal Commands.
    Code:
    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:fengestad/stable 
    sudo apt-get update 
    sudo apt-get install fs-uae fs-uae-launcher
    Every Amiga Game should work with it. I tested Games like Turrican, Space Harrier, Double Dragon and Flashback.
    Software should work too but I don't know any Programs that were made for the Amiga so I couldn't test it.

    And I don't know if it would work with your mythtv setup as I have no clue on how mythtv works and never had any use for it in the first place.

    thank you so much !

    there are simply too much different uae version.

    Actually they should also support Ubuntu (debs) on their site:
    http://fengestad.no/fs-uae/download

    They should really think one day about merging. Look for instance gens, that is a really great emulator.
