I used to install GXMAME for launching the MAME games in Ubuntu, but after installing Ubuntu 12.04 (64-bit) the package does not seem to be available in the Software System. I have tried Gnome Video Arcade, but it simply does not seem to work. Is there another UI that I can use to launch the MAME games?

There are a few. I would go for sdlmame. – daithib8 Jun 9 '12 at 12:09

Have you tried GMAMEUI ?

It's a fork of the defunct GXMame project.

GMAMEUI - Main Window

That's exactly the tool that I wanted to use! I couldn't install it in Precise using the software center, but now I have downloaded it from, and it works. Thanks! – granadajose Jun 12 '12 at 17:41
