Installing VICE on RaspberryPi

      1 Comment on Installing VICE on RaspberryPi

Prior to installing VICE on your Jessie distribution of Raspbian you need to alter the sources list.

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

Add the following lines on the end of the file

#Source for VICE
deb jessie main contrib

Execute the following commands to completely install VICE including the ROM files.
# Run the source update
apt-get update
# Install VICE from the newly added source
apt-get install vice

# Fetch, unpack and copy ROM files
cd ~
tar -xvzf vice-1.5-roms.tar.gz
sudo cp -a vice-1.5-roms/data/* /usr/lib/vice/

Start x64:

One thought on “Installing VICE on RaspberryPi

    Does this process still work? I just installed “raspbian-jessie-lite” and performed the steps as listed above. Everything appears to work until the step where vice is installed. When I type sudo app-get install vice, it reads the package lists, but then gives a message E: Unable to locate package vice

    Is vice still supported, or did I do something wrong? I have a raspberry Pi 3.

    Any help is appreciated.
