This walkthrough worked out very well. Im glad it works so easy. I think Im starting to understand why Im doing these things like this the more I read about linux. Im one of the newly converted from the windows world. Thank god there is finally an alternative that can do all the things I need to do. Lovin Ubuntu so far.
Hmmm everything seemed to work ok but I also, have no sound as well. Everything else seems to work just fine except for the fact that I have no sound in the emulator. Really wish I knew why this might be happening but I dont know enough about how Linux works to analyze the problem.

Package zsnes is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package zsnes has no installation candidate

i am linux noob coming from windows. the znes do sent appear in my menu under applications>games. please reply to email@example.com because i might not see this page again.
if you’re reading this and are using the x64 version of ubuntu 9.10 it isn’t quite so easy and painless, zsnes is 32-bit so isn’t in the 64 bit repositories so you’ll have to force install it (which is still easy enough to be honest).
Just google “zsnes_1.510-2.2ubuntu2_i386.deb” which is the debian package file for zsnes. I got it from here: “http://packages.ubuntu.com/jaunty/i386/zsnes/download”.
Once you have that, terminal to the directory where you saved it and type “sudo dpkg -i –force-architecture zsnes_1.510-2.2ubuntu2_i386.deb” which will force it to install.
Finally you can run it by doing “zsnes -ad sdl” in terminal or just adjust the command in the launcher menu.
most of this was grepped after much searching from here: “http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1307844”
