I have some old neo geo games' backups which I play when I was a child. Is there any way of playing this on this ubuntu 13.04.

There are ancient Neo Geo emulators roaming around. Alongside GnGeo, there is NeoCD/SDL. I've no idea how well that works but it's just as old so it's just as likely to explode.

The reason NeoGeo gets no love is because people just use MAME. MAME handles a wide spectrum of consoles and arcade machines. And people tend to favour the original arcade ROMs that NeoGeo games are ports of. UpUbuntu.com has a fairly good tutorial on getting it all set up that I can't beat... But the basics revolve around the mame package.

We also have a question about various MAME front-ends:

GnGeo is a neo geo emulator for linux. You may try this one.

Doesn't work, it only throws this line: *** buffer overflow detected ***: gngeo terminated –  user128712 May 30 '13 at 7:38
