    Why can I not get a single game emulator to work in Ubuntu 11.10?

    I've been trying for 3 days now, I've been wanting to play old nintendo 64 and ps1 games again so I've been looking for nintendo64 and playstation emulators.

    I've tried probably every nintendo64 emulators out there, both native and windows ones through wine. Most of the time I can't even get the emulators to install and when I do they mostly don't open. The few that do I'll do to run a rom and 100% of the time the emulator just closes.

    Does anyone have any emulators for these consoles running on ubuntu 11.10?

    I think that psx is in the repos


    Code:
    sudo apt-get install pcsx-df
    if that won't work try
    Code:
    sudo apt-cache search pcsx
    then find the package that you are looking for.

    Ps2 emulator

    Code:
    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:gregory-hainaut/pcsx2.official.ppa
    then
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    then
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install pcsx2
    there are plugins and bios that you are going to need for both pcsx and pcsx2

    My daughter is playing a game on Dolphin-Emu right now.

    I also have pcsx-r and Mupen-64 plus installed, and they run without any problems. Do you have the correct (proprietary, if necessary) drivers installed for your graphics hardware?

    Thanks for the responses. I decided to do a reinstall of ubuntu cause my install was all messed up from trying to make programs work, mupen64plus is now working so I'm guessing I must have messed with a file it needed.

    Wow I didn't even know they had a playstation 2 emulator, but the ppa says it's for 32-bit OS only, are there any ports of this for 64-bit or any 'hacky' ways to get it working on 64-bit?
