I own a Sega Saturn which I did not bring to the US. I really do not want to mess around with PAL/NTSC and the power adapter.
Luckily there is a great emulator for that old gaming console: Yabause.
Ubuntu and its variants ship Yabause 0.9.14. Since 2016 0.9.15 is out and it has several bug fixes which are listed in the changelog.
I decided to build it from the source code. That required a few adjustments and I am writing them down more or less for myself for future reference.
The source code can be downloaded from here.Extract archive and create build directory
Extract archive and create build directory:
tar xvf ~/Downloads/yabause-0.9.15.tar.gz
sudo apt install freeglut3-dev libglew-dev libopenal-dev qtbase5-dev qtmultimedia5-dev cmake cmake-gui libqt5multimedia5 libqt5gamepad5-dev
Note that I might be missing some here that were already installed on my system but might not be installed on yours. If you encounter errors I am happy to help out in the comments.
