A big plus here is, there is a Linux version of PCSX2, so we don't need to use WINE!
There are 2 ways to install pcsx2 in Ubuntu.
One just download it from the pcsx2 site, extract it in your home folder, and run the
launch_pcsx2_linux.sh(X86 only). here is the pcsx2.desktop file save it in
/usr/share/applications/ or in your
/home/your username/.local/share/applications/. Edit the file, where it says
your username change it to your actual username, and the actual path to the binary.
If that is to much of a hassle for you, The Gregory Hainaut PPA, is the official PCSX2 PPA, which supports x86 and x64 bit versions of Ubuntu. Due note that the package maintainers have stated:
PPA doesn't allow to upload package on unsupported Ubuntu. In short it
only remains LTS and latest version.
Copy past the following in your gnome-terminal
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pcsx2-unstable
If the PCSX2 doesn't work for you, try the
pcsx2-unstable package. One thing you need to do, when configuring PCSX2, is add BIOS files. You will get a window that asks for these BIOS files. You will need to provide legal BIOS´es yourself!
Warning without BIOS'es you can't play the games.
This video shows PCSX2 in action, in VMware, showing off the x86 version. I didn't start the game cause it didn't work well with my screen-recorder.
