You have to download the source code and compile it. Here are some instructions:

It's easy but the Terminal has to keep opened ...

What do I do with the github file?

First open a terminal. It will looks like this :


Then put these commands:

sudo apt install git make build-essential libsdl2-dev

git clone

cd lowres-nx/platform/LowRes\ NX\ Linux/



And LowRes NX will start up :3

Thanks :D

Do I have to run this command every time I open lowers or is there a way to make a shortcut or something?

Once the LowResNX in output is built, you can run it directly. Everything until “make” is for downloading and compiling, it’s only needed the first time.

Cool :D

is there a way i can make it not ask if i want to run a executable file every time i open it?

Timo 2021-02-19 20:02

I don’t know anything about Linux really :/

Okay thanks :)

Yes if you know .sh scripting ...
It you want i can make you one ?!

Timo 2021-02-20 14:46

You have to create a script for every executable??

G-9 2021-02-20 19:18 (Edited)

Actually if you don't want to run the command... yes.
Maybe there's a way to make it... more a GUI application? idk i just learned sh commands not Linux ;D

I have no clue what that is :P lol

It really depend on your linux distribution but most of the time you have a shortcut to create a "Desktop Launcher "or a shortcut and then you can give it the path to your executable and an icon. Maybe try right clicking on the executable or directly on the desktop. Hope that helps ;-)
