Libretro PPA for Ubuntu


#81

For who liked the PPA, I’m accepting donations now :wink:

Bitcoin address: 1KcBt7JTjKyqEwGnPEkKRiyVYgq56bgidT

Litecoin address: LQiJyvviF9hQocGgcJr4SJgZ94RAyTRrj5

It’ll help to maintain the PPA & send the packages to Debian repo eventually


#82

You can find melonDS and Citra (only PC 64-bit) in testing PPA now!


If you want to use the cores from Online Updater, go to Settings --> User Interface --> Views --> Show Core Updater = ON. Remember to change your default core directory to something writable (it’s in the root by default, because the packaging), like ~/.config/retroarch/cores/, see Settings --> Directory --> Core

Before changing that, remember that the cores from testing PPA are updated daily :wink:


#83

will cores that on the buildbot lE: nekop2, px68k, cap32, crocods appear on the testing/stable ppa soon?

Hi

I’m running into problems installing Retroarch. I’m using Linux Lite OS 3.2 (Ubuntu distro) 32 bits on this machine: Model: Toshiba Satellite L40-15G

Reference: PSL48E-01T00GPT

Technology/Processor: Mobile Technology Intel® Pentium® Dual-Core 2310, (1.46 GHz), 533 Mhz Front Side Bus, 1 MB level 2 cache, Intel® GL960 chipset

Internal Video Mode: 16.7 million colours, resolution 1280x800

Memory: 512+512 MB DDR2 (667Mhz) RAM, expandable to 3072 MB/4096 MB

Graphics: Adapter Intel® GMA X3100 (up to 256MB shared)

I installed the current stable version as directed and everytime I try to run the menu window appears and freezes immediately. When I put fullscreen window it goes all black and can’t close no matter what I do…it just stays open. It doesn’t freezes the OS but only way to close the tab/window is to restart.

I also have MAME, MESS and PCSX installed that appear to work fine with some ROMS. I am new to linux and to emulation world and I would like to use Retroarch for simplicity (combining everything in one place) but I can’t get it to work!

Any help would be appreciated Thank you

Open your config file, it’s located in home/your-user/.config/retroarch/retroarch.cfg

Change this:

menu_driver = “xmb”

To this:

menu_driver = “rgui”

It may be an issue with your graphic card. If that doesn’t work, change log_verbosity in the config file to true and open retroarch in a terminal, post here the result


@te_lanus, I’ll try add them this week

Hello

I changed the menu driver to “rgui” it goes all black. When using “xmb” the RA menu appears and freezes if I change window to fullscreen it goes all black.

Here’s the result :

Hope you can help Thanks


#87

Is this it?

" [Video]: Video @ 960x720 RetroArch [ERROR] "

Don’t know what to do


#88

There’s no much info that helps in that log… Try another Ubuntu version I guess, like 14.04 or 17.04 (this Lite OS 3.2 is 16.04 based right?). Lubuntu is probably the best bet for your hardware. You can burn it in a USB drive before installing it (using unetbootin), and test retroarch there.


#89

Do you think it’s OS related? I have MAME, MESS and PCSX installed and they work (some roms and .iso don’t but the progam does).

RA I can’t do anything?

I don’t want to change OS just to find out the same problem remains.


#90

I have no idea, like I said, test Lubuntu in a USB stick first.


#91

NP2kai, PX68K and CrocoDS added in the Testing PPA, @te_lanus take a look

Edit: Added xrick, Atari800 and PocketCDG

Still missing cores?


#92

@sergio-br2 Thanx :smiley:


#93

FreeJ2ME added there

I was going to add higan, but it’s failing to build


#94

The only ones I can see is the following

  • chailove,
  • emux_*(all of them),
  • easyrpg,
  • redream,
  • puae,
  • uzem,
  • vice_x128,
  • vice_xvic,
  • vice_xplus4

Compared the latest x68_64 on the buildbot with the one in synaptic package manager, might have missed one or two.

*EDIT: updated and reformatted the report


#95

Please can you put redream on this PPA?


#96

Is there an ETA for adding libretro-p68k to the PPA?


#97

The p68k is on the testing ppa: https://launchpad.net/~libretro/+archive/ubuntu/testing/+sourcepub/8695919/+listing-archive-extra


#98

@sergio-br2 any idea why the ppa stopped compiling? the last update I can see comes was done on the 3rd Jan.


#99

The Launchpad build farm is disabled for maintenance


#100

I any idea of the cores I linked above will be added to the ppa?
