Kxmame is a KDE port of the GXmame frontend for xmame and sdlmame emulators.

How to obtain

Download, build and install the kxmane-svn AUR package.

Steps to follow after installation

  • Install sdlmame (available in [community]).
  • Start kxmame, click through the first two error messages (regarding xmame) and then add "/usr/bin/sdlmame" to the Xmame/Xmess executables list.
  • Click OK and then click No when prompted to rebuild the game list. After that, close kxmame.
  • Create a "roms" directory inside "~/.mame" and move your roms into it.
  • Start kxmame again and select Yes when prompted to rebuild the game list.
  • Close the "Audit done" window.

You should now be able to start your roms from within kxmame.
