I use linux to run AM. I'll help you out just ask. Glad you got it solved though! :) linux doesn't really have ".exe" (-es?) as for your executable just mame no path nothing just mame will work. You can do that with any program in the /usr directory as that is kind of a "holding place for them" so the OS looks there (and other places) first. If you have a program not in there say like kega fusion or epsxe...you can put a ./ before it (e.g. ./epsxe) to run it from the command line. That tells linux to run it as a executable not just open it to read as a file
People want life easy..then complain about it
