View Full Version : [ubuntu] How do you set up gmameui (& SDL MAME) correctly?

August 19th, 2010, 12:40 PM

I am running ubuntu 10.04 and have installed gmameui and sdlmame and cannot figure out how to set it up correctly.

I installed via terminal:

sudo apt-get install gmameui

I know you have to set directories up and link them gmameui, but have no idea where to start?

Can anyone help?

In Options > Directories you set the directories you wanted to use. Where it says MAME executables, place the location of your executable. Mine is located in /usr/games/mame.

ROMs is the location of where you store your ROMs. Say ~/Games/Mame or something to that effect.

Thanks gohmifune,

Will try that seems to be a lot of directories that need setting up think I missed that one (would explain a lot) :-(

PS: I got the ROM part right just didn't know you had to point it to executable (assumed it did that itself)

thank you gohmifune
I was looking all around (on google) to know where to find the executable!
I found it too in usr/game/mame
