Install Gens/GS (Megadrive Emulator) On 64-bit Ubuntu

Sometimes I download and listen to Retroresan, which is a Swedish podcast about retro games. Recently they talked about the game Disney’s Aladdin to Megadrive, and it sounded pretty fun. So I searched and found a emulator called Gens/OS that seems to work great on Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit. However, it isn’t made for 64-bit OS:es, but it runs fine if you force install it. Here are the steps you have to take:

  1. Visit http://segaretro.org/Gens/GS, scroll to the bottom of the page and download the most recent version to Ubuntu.
  2. Make sure you have ia32-libs installed by typing these commands in the terminal:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
  3. Then navigate to your downloads folder in the terminal, and type this line to install Gens/GS:
    sudo dpkg --force-architecture -i gens_2.XXX_i386.deb
  4. Now the emulator should pop up under your Games category.
