Since SDLMAME for Ubuntu now has a repository I am no longer hosting the files locally.
The repository has the latest 32bit and 64bit builds for Ubuntu v16.04 thru to v21.10.
You can add the repositories to your box in several ways. Here's a quick how-to, you can step through it or look for full details on adding PPA's on my Launchpad Page.
Open a terminal window (commands may be typed directly or pasted into it) and:
- Remove old sdlmame repositories (if any):sudo rm -f /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sdlmame4ubuntu.*
- Add the main repository for unofficial builds:sudo add-apt-repository ppa:c.falco/mame
- Now update the information on your box:sudo apt-get update
- Finally install the package from the repository:sudo apt-get install mame
The update manager will now take care of upgrading the package for you each time a new release is available! :)
