Just wanted to say thankyou so much for all your efforts with this emulator. The interface is way better than fumbling around with the old gfceu and the video options are perfect.
This came up in the terminal:
Initializing video... Video Mode: 512 x 448 x 32 bpp full screen
Loading SDL sound with ���� driver...
No available audio device
The controller config issue seems to have resolved itself on it's own. I haven't been able to reproduce the sound issue so that too has seemed to resolve itself.

Is there no way to set directory paths with the new GUI? Having to click through folders for every load/save operation gets old fast.
Sound does not work for me.
I installed only fceux (no gfceu) by following the instructions explained in the first post. My system is 32 bit Ubuntu 10.04. Most of what I tested appear to work great except for sound.
I know that my sound works when I go to youtube.com, but I haven't done anything else to test it. Also, I don't know my system or Linux well enough to know if I should be using some other value for SDL_AUDIODRIVER. I place the export SDL_AUDIODRIVER=esd in my .bashrc file.
Here's my output:
~$ echo $SDL_AUDIODRIVER
~$ fceux --sound 1

FYI - I got game genie to work with gg.rom. If I have a couple of questions regarding the cheat code features, can I ask them here or should I create a new thread?
Thanks for all your work so far with fceux.
I had another Ubuntu install on another hard drive, so I repeated the install on the second system. Sound worked!
Difference between my two Ubuntu systems:
the first Ubuntu system (sound did NOT work) - this was a bare minimum install with LXDE. I had to install the sound files myself such as alsa-base and alsa-utils
the second Ubuntu system (sound WORKED) - this was an Ubuntu Desktop install. I'm guessing that I didn't have something installed or configured in my first system.
I would appreciate any suggestions on how I might be able to figure out what the sound setup differences are between my two systems - is there an apt or dpkg or any other command to see which packages might be missing in my first system compared to my working system. Thanks.
