    HOWTO : DBoxFE [A GUI for Dosbox].


    To install DBoxFE . which is a GUI for Dosbox , We need :

    Dosbox and Development Library of Qt4 and files needed for compiling.

    To do that , simply put in the terminal :

    sudo apt-get install dosbox libqt4-dev build-essential
    Now , we need to download the source file for DBoxFE , because its not available in a packaged Binary for each Distro.To do that , simply click here :

    And select a mirror to download it.

    Save the dboxfe-0.1.3.tar.bz2 to your Desktop.

    Next , Open up a terminal
    [And enter the commands , one line at a time pressing enter after each] :

    mkdir ~/.dboxfe
    cd ~/.dboxfe
    tar -xvf ~/Desktop/dboxfe-0.1.3.tar.bz2 
    cd dboxfe-0.1.3/
    make -f Makefile
    cd dboxfetray/
    make -f Makefile
    It's installed , now to make a launcher for DBoxFe :
    cd ~/Desktop
    ln ~/.dboxfe/dboxfe-0.1.3/bin/dboxfe DBoxFE
    Now You have an icon on the Desktop , which you can right click to open up DBoxFE.

    Just post back if you need some help with this!

    The truth is always beautiful, no matter how ugly it might seem at first.
