Do you still always enjoy the old-school Nintendo 64 videogames? So you are on the right way! in this tutorial I’ll show you how to play them all on your PC running Linux Ubuntu.
Step 1. Getting The Software
Mupen64Plus is a Nintendo 64 Emulator that allows you to play all your Nintendo 64 games on Linux Ubuntu.
It’s so easy to get, you can just click here OR you can open up a new terminal window, and run the following command :
sudo apt-get install mupen64plus
You should accepte to install the application by selecting “Y” (yes)
Now you’ll have to wait a bit for the download and the installation of the application, then look up for the it in your applications menu, it should be there.
Step 2. Playing!
Now there still one last thing to do, just get a game’s ROM file (from this site for example), open it with Mupen64Plus and have fun!
Unfortunately, Mupen64Plus doesn’t have a graphical user interface anymore, and you won’t find it in the Ubuntu dash after the installation. Thus, to play a game, write “mupen64plus” without quotes in a terminal window, then drag the your game’s rom and drop it on the terminal window. Most rom files have .v64 extension.
