Typing that into the command line doesn't work. I'm probably in the wrong directory.
I have all of my MAME ROMs on the Windows share (it's dual boot) and doing it this way works just fine for Stella. I just have to mount the Windows partition (...the path is /media/ACER/_Emulation); that way I can boot into either Windows or Linux and share the same set of ROMs.
It's frustrating that a Google search on "MAME Ubuntu" brings up many sites, but many of them are four or five years old, so it's questionable when they say things like, "The stable version of Gxmame doesn’t work with the last version of MAME, so to make all work, we’re going to install the CVS version." Well, maybe that was true in 2008 when this entry was made, but what about now, four years later?
I really want to start getting more comfortable with Linux. My Windows 7 environment does irritating things like not letting me save text files from Notebook in the public documents folder if I don't launch it as Administrator. It looks like Windows 8 is just going to get worse. I'll have to learn a whole new user interface, and pay hundreds of dollars for the OS, and accept constant anti-piracy scans before being allowed to upgrade any Microsoft products... ...I've just had it.
The Zorin user interface is beautiful; the performance is blazing on my Intel Atom based netbook, and I love everything about it except trying to install classic gaming emulators that I have run on Windows XP machines for the past 10 years without any trouble.
Well, at least there is no deadline for me to get this stuff done. I can work on it here and there and just hope that eventually I'll get a handle on it. Thanks again to everyone here who offers encouragement and support.
