    How to use dosbox in Ubuntu?

    So how to use it? I know how to use it with Windows but not how to use it with Ubuntu. With windows it's easy just to type mount c c:\.... or mount d d:\ -cdrom
    How to do that with Ubuntu???

    Re: How to use dosbox in Ubuntu?

    There are problably lots of ways to do this. This is the easiest to explain in a forum:
    * Open a terminal
    * type "dosbox -h"<enter>
    * follow the help or instructions. It says here to type "INTRO" for a short introduction. That worked for me. There is information on mounting things inside that intro.

    If you need more details, type 'man dosbox' for the manual page. There is a large section describing how to use the MOUNT command with optical drives. It appears that 'mount -cd' should be all that is needed, at least on the version I have installed. 'mount -h' provided a summary of the command arguments.

    Google found this article: http://www.ubuntugeek.com/howto-auto...in-dosbox.html with this example
    Code:
     mount d /media/cdrom0 -t cdrom
    I can't test it now, sorry.

    Okay thanks. But how do I change resolution? Dosbox resolution is smaller in my Ubuntu than in Win7

    Take a look at the dosbox wiki,
    http://www.dosbox.com/wiki/Dosbox.conf#Linux

    you will see options like fullresolution = width x height | original | desktop

    I already checked that. Didn't help me at all since I have no idea how to find Dosbox config file.

    open your home folder
    type crtl+h (this will show hidden files)
    go to .dosbox
    you will see a file like dosbox-X.YZ.conf

    where X.YZ is your dosbox version.

    OK, by terminal is easier. See the image attached:
