I assume I can use FS-UAE download from Linux Mint Packages? If so using home/elchucko/amikit/fs-uae/save states/c:/amikit/wineau/configuration says "invalid directory: That's the directory FS-UAE is looking for roms and configuration folder. Can you assist? Thank you

I'm new to this and may be way over my head.

I've never used FS-UAE. Maybe you can try Wine and run WinUAE on Linux?

Hello! I am already working AmiKIT with FS-UAE/FS-UAE Launcher. My OS is 64-bit Fedora 22 GNU/Linux.

Since Linux Mint is based on Ubuntu & Debian, you can install what you need at http://fs-uae.net/download#debian

I have been using AmiKit on Linux under wine and it does work
However, my install using Mint KDE 64 quit working and have not
been able to find the problem.AmiKit starts but am unable to click in the dialog
box ?
I plan on installing Q4wine/winetricks and see if that solves the problem
On Netrunner 64 AmiKit runs just fine

Installed Q4Wine and now AmiKit is working on Mint KDE 64
Will try the Wine forum to see why Wine is not working

Working emulation software via WINE is generally NOT a good idea. KDE consumes a lot of resources. If you're working WinUAE via Wine in KDE, you're computer's processor will be overworked; it's OK if electricity & RAM aren't commodities to you.

WINE is not intended on running emulation software, such as WinUAE.

i did have issues trying to install amikit inside fs-uae which looked a pain to rectify, in the end i installed on pc and just copied the installed files over to linux.

However when i tried the amikit hdf it refused to work on my fs-uae for some reason, which i just solved by transfering the amikit hdf contents inside winuae to a fresh hdf created in fs-uae but mounted in winuae, i also have a copy of everything direct on a pc folder as well.

No idea why fs-uae wouldnt recognise the amikit winuae hdf but easily recognised them when made in fs-uae, surely they follow the same standard/format.

FS-UAE is not supported. Official AmiKit X for Linux runs on WinUAE/wine.

as long as you can get the thing installed in some way, then all you need to do is copy the contents of the installed HDF file to a folder and amikit runs no problem in fs-uae.

This makes no sense. All WINE does is provide native Linux versions of Windows libraries. It's an x86 application running on an x86 processor, same as if you had a Linux binary using Linux libraries. "WINE" = "WINE Is Not an Emulator"

I did this and end up with all kinds of errors during startup. Can you provide more details about how you configured fs-uae? Thanks!

theres not much to actually alter when compared to winuae, you just need the usual a1200 related stuff set and rtg options on and it should work... what errors you getting exactly. also for some reason it doesnt work when i use 68020, it only works for me using 68040-NOMMU.
