Fresh opendingux install but no idea what to do...
« on: March 22, 2014, 10:38:06 pm »
I just installed opendingux succesfuly and I havr no idea how to install any applications on it. Where do I put the files from the extracted archive? I have a basic understanding of linux but I have no idea where anything goes. For example I wish to install radio player 0.2.1. I extracted it and have no idea where the font file, the.dge file, and the icon file go. Where should I put these files? Thanks in advance.

Now that I have solved my problem I have come across another problem. I have gotten radio player to launch and work but the other applications I installed open and crash. gpSP, snes9x, and snes9x-od are installed to /boot/local/apps/[application name]/.

Is there something I'm overlooking or just bugged software?

the answer you seek is here

It has something to do with the built in file selector. you have to edit the link you make to point to your rom directory. Hopefully this helps.

Thank you. Setting a selector directory helped for all my installed emulators.
