I would love to use “Zsnes” and I did successfully install it, but it does not run
on my Manjaro KDE “Testing” branch?
Any ideas on how to get this to work?
NOTE: I get below when running in terminal:
*** buffer overflow detected ***: terminated
zsh: IOT instruction (core dumped) zsnes
Scrap Zsnes. (It’s an archaic security/coding/maintenance nightmare for modern systems.)
Use RetroArch (and download “cores” as needed.)
Think of “cores” as emulator engines.
Or try Snes9x standalone.
RetroArch is in the official repositories.
EDIT: Make sure to also install the “recommended” dependency
I have RetroArch already, but the interface is terribly confusing…
Zsnes interface is clean and easy to understand.
I understand the hatred toward Zsnes, and I know it’s not 100% accurate,
but I love it most for SNES emulation…
I know. I have a place in my heart for Zsnes. But it’s unlikely to be maintained and consistently work for newer systems. The fork is a valiant effort, but still with severe issues.
Tried to run SNES on RetroArch, it just crashes to desktop?
“Snes9x” standalone works fine though and is adequate.
Interesting. Because I use the Snes9x core for RetroArch, and have recently played several SNES games with no issues at all.
The full name of the core is: Snes9x 2010
I also tried the same with the core found in the repos:
libretro-snes9x (version 2145)
Which is labeled as: Snes9x (Current)
If it means anything, the system in question is:
Operating System: Manjaro Linux
KDE Plasma: 5.24.5
KDE Frameworks: 5.94.0
Kernel: 5.15.41-1-MANJARO (64-bit)
Graphics Platform: X11
Processors: 6 × Intel® Core™ i5-8400 CPU @ 2.80GHz
Memory: 11.5 GiB of RAM
Graphics Processor: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650/PCIe/SSE2

As long as you’re happy with it, and it works, that’s all that really matters.
