How do I install zsnes on Lubuntu? I've already updated Synaptic and ran sudo apt-get install zsnes, it came up with this error:

>Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package zsnes is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package 'zsnes' has no installation candidate

Is there a way I can fix this, or another way to install zsnes on Lubuntu?

The development of zsnes was discontinued and therefore removed from package sources. However you should find the package bsnes. This is now the recommended package for emulating SNES.
