Why Linux Mint XFCE?

Linux Mint combines Debian core and professionality with user friendliness. It supports new as well as older hardware and has pre-installed everything what a normal user needs when working on internet and with PC peripherals, such as printers and scanners.

Especially the Linux Mint XFCE does not require big system resources or the latest hardware, LM XFCE is fast, easy to use, nice and reasonable to look at.

FUSE: If TRD or SCL images cannot be started because some ROM file is missing, download the above full ROM set. Put the whole content of this archive into the directory /var/lib/flatpak/app/net.sf.fuse_emulator/x86_64/stable/active/files/share/fuse/ When you compile your own FUSE it should be /usr/share/spectrum-roms/ For a copying of these files Open as root is needed.

Samdisk: If the file libbz2.so is missing in the system, install it:
$ sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get upgrade
$ sudo apt-get install lib32z1

The Qt4 framework has already been removed from Ubuntu main repositories

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gezakovacs/ppa
