Ubuntu Retro Support Please

  • Ubuntu 16.04
    i3-2120T Intel Core with Integrated graphics.
    Retropie latest wiki ref.

    I just now read that Ubuntu prior 18.04 is supported no longer. Of course, I wasn't being picky I just thought 16.04 was the prime.
    I guess I'll just upgrade...

    Linking this with this as it is probably opengl support.

    @Efriim said in Ubuntu Retro Support Please:

    Does anyone know what I was missing to sucessfully install ES? As I said it works, it just says that the install failed.

    It's probably because the new Emulationstation needs the rapidjson-dev package installed - similar to Debian and Raspbian Jessie:

  • @mitu I read that reicast was working in 16.04. If I just needed to install the libboost* & rapidjson-dev packages, I think I will reinstall to 16.04. Thanks mitu.

    And it is pretty great, I like it a lot. Now I'd like to find out how to configure it to start like raspberry pi into ES and exit to bash.

  • lr-redream and lr-reicast are functioning neither(18.04). Reicast installed from snap gives error:

    ERROR: object '' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (failed to map segment from shared object): ignored.
