Ubuntu: Installed mupen64plus package, but can't see it anywhere



Question:

I installed mupen64plus using this command: apt-get install mupen64plus, then I tried to run it from the command line, but it didn't found the executable. Then I tried to look it up in xfce's list of program, and it didn't appear in the list. I also followed the instructions from the first answer of this question: How do I install mupen64plus? and not luck either.

The package (https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/mupen64plus/) is installed, but it says in the software center that it only takes 37kb of disk space (which is ridiculous).

Does somebody knows where is the problem? Thanks.


Solution:1

In my software center it says that it takes 1,6 MB for download and 6,2 MB for install.

Type Alt+F2 and search for it to see that is there. To use in a terminal try:

./mupen64plus ./m64p_test_rom.v64  

You can find here some documentation about this plugin.

mupen64plus


Solution:2

I was able to play the game with the mupen64plus software. So I installed it like you did:

apt-get install mupen64plus  

then I download the rom game for n64 (for example Zelda). In the terminal, I unzipped the game and placed it to specific file where all my N64 games are.

Example:

unzip Zelda.zip   mv Zelda.n64 ROMS/N64  

the on the N64 file I did:

mupen64plus Zelda.n64  

and it opened the software with the game itself.
