This is a gnome front end to visualboyadvance. I have it in debian sid, can't recall if it's official or not but I believe it is official on the debian side.

So why don't you just download it from debian repo? :D

I've added Mike's package to my local working copy, and it'll be uploaded with aDesklets once this 40MB monster (Adobe Acrobat Reader 7) finishes.

The one from the debian repo has depenancy problem with python 2.4.1, my package fixes that.

thanks a lot. I really have to learn how to package stuff. Giving a glance over the deb maintainer's guide it assumes your starting from source. Most of these backports are using the debian's src file correct? Is there a smaller guide going on the assumption you already have a src deb? I'd like to give it a go.

Btw How did you fix the python 2.4.1 dependency problem? I was about to install python 2.3 to satisfy the deb all pkg from the programs site but held off to see if someone would package it here.

What do I search for in Synaptic and where do I search for it?

Does the joystick work for gnomeboyadvance? Where do you get it from? debian sid or universe? I seem to find gnuboy instead. And the deb for gnomeboy adavance I find, never install successfully?

Is there a required kernel, vga, gamepad, or repository? Is directX required? ogg splitter, etc?

I own a saitek pad.

I'm not adding it to the backports since it was not built from offical Ubuntu source files.
