How do you installed epsxe?
Unzipped the archive and installed all the libs manually since they dont exists on repository in karmic...is there some verbose mode in which i cann run epsxe so it could give more information?

EDIT: i think that problem lies in libs. I have just tried installing libs as in tutorial ,however for jaunty and...well nothing works...like dependency hell...

Well last time i tried epsxe in ubuntu was back with 7.10 or 8.04, cant remember exactly.
All i remember, i had to unpack the epsxe binary, like some UPX compression.

Browse ubuntu forums, you'll probably have better chance there.

Yes, Mad is right. ePSXe is UPX compressed.
You can unpack it with upx-ucl.
Code:
sudo apt-get install upx-ucl
cd /your_epsxe_dir
upx -d epsxe
As for dependencies you can add 9.04 repository to software sources.
Go to "System" -> "Administration" -> "Software Sources" -> "Other Software tab" and click "Add" button.
Enter the following string in the textbox:
Code:
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ jaunty main universe multiverse restricted
Click "Close" and a dialog should pop up with a message that you should reload. Do so.

After that you should be able to follow the guide at the top of this forum section.

Would that not break the system?

I'm trying to run ePSXe with UNR 9.10 on a toshiba nb205-n310 (Intel Atom N280 1.66 GHZ, Crucial 2 GB 667 MHZ DDR2 RAM, Intel GMA 950 Dynamic Video). I can execute the program, but when it comes to configuring the video, the only option listed is DISABLED and I cannot locate the MesaGL driver. The sound and CDROM configure menus both seem to list their respective sites, but I cannot figure out what to do with the video. The actual cfg folder contains:
cfgPeopsOSS cfgPeopsSoft cfgPeteMesaGL cfgPeteXGL2 spuPeopsOSS.cfg
but does not list anything but DISABLED in the menu.
Any ideas?

ePSXe executes naturally and takes me to its native environment. However, I cannot run the BIOS without being referring to config > video, which then does not let me config the video.
You didn't answered my question...the terminal is the key,don't click on the epsxe binary.

Example:

Code:
[email protected]:~$ cd /home/tomek/Programi/Ostalo/Igre/PSX/ePSXe/
[email protected]:~/Programi/Ostalo/Igre/PSX/ePSXe$ ./epsxe 
 * Running ePSXe emulator version 1.6.0. 

Gtk-WARNING **: Failed to load module "libcanberra-gtk-module.so": libcanberra-gtk-module.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
 * Going out from gui. (exit)
[email protected]:~/Programi/Ostalo/Igre/PSX/ePSXe$
This is what i want to see...

I am only executing it through the terminal. The text:
[email protected]:~/Games/PSX/ePSXe-1.6$ sudo ./epsxe
[sudo] password for name:
* Running ePSXe emulator version 1.6.0.
* Going out from gui. (exit)
[email protected]:~/Games/PSX/ePSXe-1.6$
It executes fine, taking me to the blue screen with the ePSXe logo, and the respective menus. It just won't let me configure the video from there.
