ubuntu 20.04 Problems compiling retrofe
« on: April 29, 2020, 12:04:47 PM »
I would like to use ubuntu 20.04 for the development of my layout, but I cannot compile retrofe following the steps of the official manual.

Could someone tell me what I do to compile it in Ubuntu 20.04?

Can you make a screenshot of the error message(s)? I just compiled the latest version on my Kubuntu setup, and had no problems.

Some dependencies don't exist or are versions that are too new in 20.04.

I got it to install dependencies and compile correctly in 18.04 without issue after failing in 20.04 myself.

Now my question is what methods to install mame/retroarch/dolphin/etc  to make it work with this front end and how to path the executable line in the linux launcher files in RetroFE...

The only issue I encountered is that the Mercurial package doesnít exist. If you donít remove it from the install list, Ubuntu wonít install the rest either, and so the compile will fail. I used Kubuntu 20.04 myself.
