Need a guide to compile AM for Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
« on: October 14, 2021, 02:28:32 PM »
Hello everyone. I made an attempt to run some commands to get RetroArch installed on my Ubuntu OS. I would like to build Attract Mode so I can add a nice frontend too. Does anyone have a guide or a list of commands I can use to build it on 20.04 LTS? Thank you for your help.  ;D

My fault that I didn't mention that I added this Ubuntu image to my Odroid XU4. I was using the ARES build, but I decided to try a different OS. If anyone has suggestions as to what commands to use in the terminal, please let me know. Thanks.

@Strider_Hiryu

you can try the actually ubuntu compile instructions too. Just copy the line there to grab the needed dependencies...however one I think that is missing is libcurl, you will need that if you plan to scrape artwork and stuff! (you'll need libcurl-dev packages too!)

I think it should work for an odroid.

Hope that helps :3
