PCSX2 in Ubuntu(x86/x64)

A big plus here is, there is a Linux version of PCSX2 so, we don't need to use WINE!

There are 2 ways to install pcsx2 in Ubuntu. One just download it from the pcsx2 site, extract it in your home folder, and run the launch_pcsx2_linux.sh(X86 only). Here is the pcsx2.desktop file save it in /usr/share/applications/ or in your /home/your username/.local/share/applications/ Where it says your username... change it to your username.

If that is to much of a hassel for you just add the gregory-hainaut ppa to your software sources(x86 only). The following are supported: Raring (13.04), Quantal (12.10),Precise (12.04), Oneiric (11.10), Natty (11.04), Maverick (10.10), Lucid (10.04).

  1. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gregory-hainaut/pcsx2.official.ppa
  2. sudo apt-get update
  3. sudo apt-get install pcsx2-unstable

To install it for Ubuntu x86 and x64 bit you can use this ppa. (This is only for 12.04) copy paste this in your gnome-terminal

  1. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:micove/console
  2. sudo apt-get update
  3. # dependencies
  4. sudo apt-get install libasound2-dev nvidia-cg-toolkit autoconf x11proto-xf86* glew-utils1.5 joystick
  5. # the main app
  6. sudo apt-get install pcsx2

(if the pcsx2 doesn't work for you try the pcsx2-unstable) One thing you need to do is when you are configuring PCSX2 you will get a window that ask for a BIOS.You will need to provide legal BIOS'es yourself!

Warning without BIOS'es you can't play the games

The ppa below created by noobslab.com, can be used by both x86, and amd64 users for those experiencing issues with the other ppa's, they can try this one out. The following are supported: Raring (13.04),Quantal (12.10).

  1. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/pcsx2
  2. sudo apt-get update
  3. sudo apt-get install pcsx2

This video shows pcsx2 in action, in vmware. Showing off the x86 version using the gregory-hainaut ppa, And local using the amd64 version using the micove ppa. I didnt start the game cause it didnt work well with my screenrecorder
