I am running pcsx on Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit, and I tried running Chrono Cross as an .iso file. As soon as I start the new game, the screen goes black and it does not load. Any advice?

I installed pcsx from the software center.

It freezes with all games.

I will try the info from this and see what happens.

It looks really helpful...updates to follow.

What have you tried so far? Did you follow along with this thread? ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=159987 did you install from package or source? We need details... Is it only the one game or all games? –  hbdgaf Aug 6 '12 at 15:03

I had this problem and fixed it by installing libstdc++5. After that it worked fine.
