Recalbox 7.0


  • Hi all.  First post here.  🙂 I love the product you have put together.  I especially like the changes made to EmulationStation (them music, input mapping, etc.).  I run ES/RA on a Lubuntu 15.10 system and was wondering if the ES that recalbox uses is available to download/install on Linux?  Right now I install ES from their PPA but it does not have all of the additions that the recalbox version has. TIA! John

  • I think I found my answer: Now I just need to figure out what to do with it.  🙂 John

  • OK...I have been able to successfully compile Aloshi's ES on Lubuntu 15.10 x64 but the recalbox version is giving me issues (namely SDL errors).  Any guidance would be appreciated! John

  • I got this going by installing all the requirements listed under the emulationstation github readme...

    sudo apt-get install libsdl2-dev libboost-system-dev libboost-filesystem-dev libboost-date-<span class="pl-k">time</span>-dev libboost-locale-dev libfreeimage-dev libfreetype6-dev libeigen3-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev libasound2-dev libgl1-mesa-dev build-essential cmake fonts-droid

    And these extra couple:

    sudo apt-get install libsdl2-mixer-dev libboost1.58-all-dev

    Then just follow the rest of the instructions.  Hope this helps!

  • Thank you for the info Corey.  I am going to run through this now. John
