Hey I don't know much about computers so if someone can explain the steps to finding, installing and actually using a playstation 2 emulator on ubuntu 12.04 that would be great! :) Again, i don't know any computer terms, however i know that 32 bit is what i have. If that makes sense.

Thanks in advance!

PCSX2 is a PS2 emulator that runs on Linux (and Windows, as well). You can install the "official" pcsx2 ppa by opening a terminal and typing the following:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gregory-hainaut/pcsx2.official.ppa
Follow the on-screen prompts. When that is finished, type the following to install the package:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pcsx2-unstable

Hi there, I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 and I just installed PSCX2 (following your instructions). It installed just fine, no unmet dependencies or errors. But when I choose the ISO and run it, I get a blank screen and the UI interface freezes (so I have to kill it). Although there's no error messages :S

This is the terminal output:


Interface is initializing. Entering Pcsx2App::OnInit!
Applying operating system default language...
Command line parsing...
Command line parsed!
ZZogl-PG: Calling GSinit.
ZZogl-PG: GSinit finished.
ZZogl-PG: Calling GSopen2.
ZZogl-PG: Capturing ZZOgl window.
ZZogl-PG: Got Doublebuffered Visual!
ZZogl-PG: glX-Version 1.4 with Direct Rendering
ZZogl-PG: Using multitexturing.
ZZogl-PG: Maximum texture size is 2048 for Tex_2d and 2048 for Tex_NV.
ZZogl-PG: Disabling MRT depth writing.

And no errors on the log window either, just "Opening GS" and that's it.

Do you have any idea what I should do to get it to work?

Just thought I'd mention that I got it to work in windows XP, but it was unplayable (slow motion kinda slow).

I have a Intel Pentium 4 Hyperthreading Processor @ 3ghz

This is my graphics info (sorry, not an ubuntu expert)

CPU recommendations from PCSX2's page

Intel Core 2 Duo @ 3.2 GHz or better OR i3/i5/i7 @ 2,8 GHz or better OR AMD Phenom II @ 3,2 GHz or better

Your system is way too old to play any games at normal speed. Even brand-new hardware can't always do that.

Just wanted to add to this.
My system:

Macbook 2,1
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
1 gig of ram
core 2 duo 3.0ghz

I have installed and ran this emulator with success! Thank you to thatguruguy for the easy console commands.

I, too, am having difficulty getting this emulator running. I have 64-bit Ubuntu 12.04 and installed from the ppa. When I try to configure the graphics the only option is for GSdx. When I try to load an ISO it brings up the game window but it freezes immediately (it doesn't get to the playstation loading screen or anything). The only output in the log window was

HLE Host: Will load ELF:
HLE Notice: ELF does not have a path.

I would like to try the zzogl plugin, but it isn't available from the dropdown, even though the .so file is in the plugins folder along with GSdx. Anyone have any idea as to how I can enable it or something?

Please let me know if I can provide any more information. Thanks!

It worked for me too. Good work!!!:)

Update: I got it working once I installed the proprietary drivers for my Nvidia card.
