The following is a guide on how to install the latest stable version of PCSX2 on Linux. If you want to try the latest unstable builds, please refer to this guide here.


Arch Linux

If you are running 64-bit Arch Linux, you will need to enable access to the multilib repository, so you can obtain 32-bit libraries. You can do this by uncommenting the following lines in /etc/pacman.conf:

Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

Next, you can simply install PCSX2 using the package manager:

pacman -S pcsx2

Debian/Ubuntu based distros

  1. Add one of the following two repositories:
    • PCSX2 Daily Builds PPA (development version):
      sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pcsx2-team/pcsx2-daily
    • Gregory's PPA (stable version):
      sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gregory-hainaut/pcsx2.official.ppa
  2. Update repository listings:
    sudo apt-get update
  3. Install PCSX2:
    sudo apt-get install pcsx2


openSUSE users need to add Packman repository. This will add the repo for version 13.2:

zypper ar -f packman 

If using a different version of openSUSE (13.x, Tumbleweed, Factory) please visit Packman

(please only install the i586 package, x86_64 one has problems and so far is unsupported)

zypper install pcsx2.i586
