I started to wonder if maybe I'm not thinking about this with a eye to
the future. Maintaining this will be difficult. I decided to take a
look on flathub.org
. It does have a flatpak for pcsx2.
It is listed as 1.5.0-dev.
The playstation 2 bios files needed to moved to a different location.
It runs about the same as the regular version. Steambot Chronicles
doesn't run at full speed on my computer (about ~50% PS2 speed). The
flatpak version may have been a percent or two behind but hard to say
I did have problems installing it. Following the instructions on the
site didn't work. The repository is added in my Gnome Software but
clicking on install gave an error "Failed to install file: not
supported". Not sure why that is. I ended up using the command line.
flatpak install flathub net.pcsx2.PCSX2

Before the meeting on games, I tested pcsx2 thinking maybe I could
show it. However, it was removed from rpmfusion in Fedora 30. PCSX2
is playstation 2 emulator. I have a working PS2 but the He-Man game
was only released in Europe and it is region locked. The emulator
finally allowed me to try the game. Since I didn't like losing that
ability I've rebuilt the pcsx2 package for Fedora 30.
The src rpms are exactly the same as the files from fedora and
rpmfusion. I cheated a bit in compiling the pcsx2 package. It had
some errors with system headers files. Rather than create a patch to
make it compile, I hacked the system header files. (It was a throw
away VM because pcsx2 can't compile in 64 bit.)
Feel free to grab it if you want to play PS2 games.
