Hi, folks!

This is my first topic here.
I need a support from you.
Has anyone tried installing and configuring openmsx on Manjaro Linux XFCE?
Before you ask, the sudo apt-get command does not work on xfce. And I've already installed all the library needed to work.
Below are the terminal command pasted here.

[edson@edson-pc openmsx-0.14.0]$ ./configure
Using Python: python2
Probing target system...
Up to date: derived/x86_64-linux-opt/config/probed_defs.mk
Up to date: derived/x86_64-linux-opt/config/systemfuncs.hh

Found libraries:
ALSA: version 1.1.5
GLEW: version unknown
libogg: version unknown
libpng: version 1.6.34
libtheora: version unknown
libvorbis: version unknown
OpenGL: version 4.6
SDL: version 1.2.15
SDL_ttf: version 2.0.11
Tcl: version 8.6.8
zlib: version 1.2.11

Components overview:
Emulation core: yes
GL renderer: yes
Laserdisc: yes
ALSA MIDI: yes

Customisable options:
Install to /opt/openMSX
(you can edit these in build/custom.mk)

All required and optional components can be built.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Who can help me in this? Sorry fro my poor English.

Thank you.

What exactly is the problem?

I never heard of Manjaro, but I just looked it up. It's apparently based on Arch Linux, which doesn't use apt as package manager but pacman.

Did you try

sudo pacman -Syu openmsx

or something similar, fitting Manjaro?
I don't know if Manjaro or Arch actually packaged openMSX, though. If not, you can build it from source, and you were well underway doing that. Just follow the next step from the Compilation Guide!

Hi AlkatrazBR

apt-get / apt commands are the default terminal package installer that comes preinstalled only for debian/ubuntu based distributions (.deb packages) you have to use pacman that uses .pkg extensions so you have to look for archlinux/Manjaro packages or compile yourself.

Regarding the debug log you show:

It says that versions of some dependencies are unknown (maybe too modern or simply not found), try to compile with administrative privileges:

# ./configure (like you did)
# make install (for compile and install for all users if not, you can compile only for your user with "make")

Remember that "#" is prompt from root or administrative privilegies and "$" normal user (I am an user that prefers debian based distros and I am not sure if sudo command works too in manjaro but I think that works)

I hope been helpful

The version unknown issues are not a problem. After all, it says:

So, all is good to go! Build it! Administrative privileges are not needed to build.

I recommend administrative rights only if you want to have openmsx available for all users of course

You only need it at install time, not at compile time.
