I want to run SheepShaver PowerPC Mac emulator on my Ubuntu 16.04 LTS desktop.
How can I compile and run it?

One should install build-dependencies and development packages:
sudo apt-get install build-essential git sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev x11proto-xf86dga-dev \ libesd0-dev libxxf86dga-dev libxxf86dga1 libsdl1.2-dev
libesd0-dev package is not available for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
Then clone official repository of the project and compile the application:
cd ~/Downloads git clone https://github.com/cebix/macemu.git cd macemu/SheepShaver make links cd src/Unix/ ./autogen.sh make -j3
Afterwards run it with
./SheepShaver, and you will get the following window:
N.B. SheepShaver cannot run any version of MacOS later than 9.04 AFAIK. However this is long-obsolete and widely downloadable, e.g. https://winworldpc.com/product/mac-os-9/90
A pre-installed copy along with WordPerfect 3.5 for MacOS (the final version, made freeware by Corel when it discontinued Mac support) is included in this download: http://www.columbia.edu/~em36/wpdos/mac-intel.html
