    Re: HOWTO: Install (G)FCEUX 2.0 NES emulator

    Hello all,

    I really can't diagnose people's sound issues this way.

    Sound is a mess in 9.10.

    Please post the following info:
    OS version
    SDL_AUDIODRIVER (this is a big issue; it's buggy in < 10.4.
    FceuX version

    Fceu has such a different codebase from fceux at this point that I'm going to really offer support for anyone with troubles with fceu except this point of advice: upgrade to fceux

    I'd love to help people out here

    I had sound working w/ fceux (svn) in 9.10 with export SDL_AUDIODRIVER=esd (while using pulseaudio)

    Sound works out of the box in 10.04; which I recommend everyone to upgrade to when it is released.

    Just reiterating that the issues here are NOT with fceuX code; mostly issues with the SDLAUDIODRIVERs

    or /usr/local/bin/fceux

    everyone is tripping over being able to remove fceux

    it's on binary file; you don't even really need to install it

    Hi guys!

    My system is Ubuntu 9.10 64 bits, and it work's perfectly.

    I did following steps:

    1. Download Fceux tar.bz2 from here

    2. Install necessary dependencies.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install scons libsdl1.2-dev libsdl1.2debian-esd subversion libgtk2.0-dev
    3. Open a terminal (Applications... Accessories... Terminal) and obtain source from subversion.
    Code:
    svn co https://fceultra.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/fceultra fceultra
    4. Change directory into the fceu folder.

    Code:
    cd fceultra/fceu
    5. Build and install fceux.

    Code:
    sudo scons GTK=1 install
    6. Type: fceux

    Thanks punkrockguy318.

    I recently had to do this again, for my 64 bit machine.
    I noted that you install libsdl1.2debian-esd and that was going to uninstall (on my machine) libsdl1.2debian-alsa. I noticed that there is a libsdl1.2debian-all that allows for all of the options. I installed that instead and the only difference I have to make now is to specify esd before starting gfceux by setting the environment variable
    Code:
    export SDL_AUDIODRIVER=esd
    I have that in my .profile now, but I have also tested using the following in the launch for gfceux that I created in the menu
    Code:
    env  "SDL_AUDIODRIVER=esd" /usr/local/bin/fceux
    Hope this helps if someone wanted to make sure their SDL library had support for other sound options. ESD is still the only one that works right for me for gfceux.

    Re: HOWTO: Install (G)FCEUX 2.0 NES emulator

    I compiled FCEUX using the instructions in the first post, and I'm VERY happy to say it compiles just fine under Lucid Ubuntu. I'm running the 32-bit beta/release candidate (according to the roadmap we're in-between them with a freeze on just about everything, so I'm guessing it's about the release candidate at this point)

    It's a little choppy, but at the same time, I'm running a bit of an underpowered machine (Dell Mini 9: 1024 MB RAM, 1.6 Intel Atom, Intel GMA 950).

    By the way, what would you say the minimum specs are nowadays for this program?

    Thanks,

    --Red

    EDIT: P.S. I found that the emulator runs as smooth as can be without sound enabled (even at 400% speed), which for me is fine because I normally tend to play Final Fantasy when I'm in class, when I sit in waiting rooms, etc.

    Well, sound was working for me in 2.1.2, but after installing 2.1.3, it doesn't (running Debian squeeze)

    Code:
    echo $DISPLAY
    :0
    
    echo $SDL_AUDIODRIVER
    esd
    I ran
    Code:
    esddsp fceux file.rom
    and got this:
    Code:
    Loading SDL sound with  ��  driver...
    No available audio device
    Notice the Unicode junk as the name of the driver. It is different every time. Some others that have appeared:
    Code:
    @��
    ���
    `�D
    `�

    Many thanks to the OP - this worked great. I'm now up on FCEUX 2.0.




    I can't seem to get full screen going, but that is a minor issue. (I'm set at 1680x1050 on a laptop.)

    This is a very nice implementation. By comparison, the out of the box 9.1 fceu was choking at 100% utilizaiton. I think I had fceu working on 10.04, but there were so many issues with that I had to reinstall at 9.1.
