Running PSX with Games application from Software Manager

Post by jameskga » Sun Dec 31, 2017 8:42 pm

I can't find the directory ~/.config/gnome-games/platforms/PLATFORM/system where I'm supposed to put the PlayStation BIOS (and where 'PLATFORM' is SegaGenesis or any system).

It's referenced here in the documentation: ... figuration

Why can't I find it?

I am supposed to be able to edit .libretro files in the $(libdir)/libretro directory which I also can't find. I installed Games using Flatpak.

That is according to this link: ... riptorSpec

Am I supposed to create these files and directories myself? Shouldn't they already exist because libretro was installed with Games?

More information:
Mint Xfce 18.3 (64-bit)
I am referring to the new Games application installable as a flatpak. It is very ambiguous what it does or doesn't do. And I don't know how to add in my PSX BIOS or if it even has an emulator. It says it does, and special firmware such as BIOS is only a matter of adding it to that directory. Which as I said before, the directory doesn't exist. I made it and put the file there to no avail. It crashes to black screen.
Linux Mint 18.3 Xfce (64-bit)
I am out there
