I am installing the package under /opt/pcsx2 with resources and cheats*.zip inside resources, all under the same directory. This is mostly static data as far as I can tell and it doesn't need to modified.To run the program a very simple script is installed in /usr/bin with the same name as the executable.
The legacy memory cards folder is only used if Mcd001.ps2 and/or Mcd002.ps2 is detected in retroarch/system/pcsx2/memcards/ and the "Memory Card: Slot N" core option is set to "Legacy".This can be useful if you were using an older version of the core that didn't use the saves folder yet, or if you transferred the memcards folder directly from standalone.
When I downloaded the pcsx2-0.9.8-r4594-linux.tar.gz I extracted it in the home directory and run the launch_pcsx2_linux.sh file, it closed immediately. When I open GNOME-terminal and typed in: ./launch_pcsx2_linux.sh I got the following error:
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/. Edit the file, where it says your username change it to your actual username, and the actual path to the binary.
If the PCSX2 doesn't work for you, try the pcsx2-unstable package. One thing you need to do, when configuring PCSX2, is add BIOS files. You will get a window that asks for these BIOS files. You will need to provide legal BIOS´es yourself!
Well, it used to open just fine last week. Idk, but it doesn't sound like they would just change the name of the binary from one week to the other, but ok, I'll try the "pacman -QI pcsx2".Ok, just got myself a new pacman bug:
Do you still have your game saves?I'm not sure what happened, but pcsx2 was not found, so I started pcsx2-qt and gran turismo 4.The game did not find GT4 save data, so I stopped emulator and searched for *.ps2,I had 2 config locations, one was PCSX2 and other pcsx2, so I copied memory card files from one that was not used right now. (Mistake, should have made backup)And that was also empty. :) 781b155fdc
