This is a installation Tutorial about how to install psptoolchain
you will need to install:

build-essential, autoconf, automake, bison, flex, libncurses5-dev, libreadline-dev, libusb-dev, texinfo, libmpfr-dev,

sudo apt-install then type one of those names

First off -- go to your home/username folder <(username)> = your ubuntu login name...so anyways go to your home/username folder and you should see folders like Desktop, Documents, Examples, etc now press ctrl + H (this shows your hidden folders) now scroll down and find a txt folder called .bashrc and open that up and paste these at the bottom of the text file

export PSPDEV="/usr/local/pspdev"
export PSPSDK="$PSPDEV/psp/sdk"
export PATH="$PATH:$PSPDEV/bin:$PSPSDK/bin"

Then save that and exit text editor now back to your username folder press ctrl + H to hide your hidden folders now open Synaptic Package Manager System - Administration - Synaptic Package Manager now search for libgmp3-dev and install that now open your terminal
