As keilmillerjr points out, this is a Linux command. Based on your post title "Ubuntu" I understand you're using Linux and not Windows.

I said "command line" but you can interchange that with "console", "terminal" or any other term that means the text only mode of the operating system.

On the command line go to the folder with your roms and type "pwd" and then press "Enter". The path displayed is what you should use in your configuration file.

After a few hours the screensaver disappears and debian's desktop appears.
I am using debian stable + attract mode.
Does anybody know what is it due to? Thank you

Please don't post the same question in multiple places on the forum.

It's probably one of your videos. Change your screensaver settings to only use still images (no videos) and see if you still have the issue. If you don't, track down the bad video.

Try each of the different Attract-Mode Window Modes and see if one of them resolves your problem.

Configure-->General-->Window Mode

Instant Sheller is a free program that can help. There's a bunch of helpful information here https://www.gameex.com/instant-sheller-and-shelling-guide/.

Both of these styles work for me.

Code: [Select]
args                 -s "[emulator]" -r "[name]" -p AttractMode -f "\Vintage Collection\Attract\attract.exe"

Code: [Select]
args                 -s "[emulator]" -r "[name]" -p AttractMode -f "..\Attract\attract.exe"

Yes, you can run them together. This is how Windows works, Explorer.exe is launched at boot as a shell and then other programs are run on top of it.

You can only have one shell. If you use attract.exe as your shell then you would have to launch any other programs by using a script or in the manner that keilmillerjr describes. You would typically only run AM as a shell if you don't want to see and use the OS for anything else, like in an arcade cabinet.

The attract.am just contains information about which system was used last and the position of the romlist that each display last used. Think of it as Attract-Mode's memory for what to display when you launch AM or as you are switching to different displays.

Side note - Curious if you ever had issues with the fan coming off. I always disliked the intel stock fans that use the plastic clip system. Also if you arent getting error beeps, it could simply be the mother board doesnt have the little speaker hooked to it.

Does the mother board have a battery installed on it? like a watch battery, you could try removing and placing it back to reset the bios.

Good points. It's not common but I have seen a bad battery cause a computer to not boot or show a BIOS post.

If the MB has video out disconnect the video card. Ideally you only want the RAM, CPU and PS connected to the MB and see if you can get a post.

Every MB I've seen is designed to show you errors on the screen or make audible tones if it can put the errors on the screen. If you can't get to this point then one of these four pieces (PS, MB, CPU or RAM) is bad.

You say it doesn't boot. What does it do? Are there any LEDs lilt on the MB? Do the fans come on? Do you hear any audible sounds? Have you reseated connections to the MB (maybe one came loose). Have you disconnected all non-critical devices (everything but the MB, CPU and RAM) to see if it will boot?

« on: February 25, 2019, 12:24:00 PM »
If you compiled Attract-Mode you have layouts. You're just not looking in the right place. Search the OS to find them.

Code: [Select]
sudo find / -iname layouts
