GR-Lida, Front end for DOSBox, ScummVM on Raspberry Pi


In my search for a nice front end or interface to sort and categorize my abandonware games, I came across GR-Lida and found it very complete. It is based on Qt5 (hence the post from a few days ago) and I have compiled it for the Raspberry Pi. In case you want to do it, I leave you the binary and the instructions below...


Some interesting info about version 0.12.0:

  • Supports themesopen in new window.

  • Launcher for DOSBox, ScummVM and VDMSound.

  • Support for importing games from DBGL.

  • Multiplatform and multi-language.

  • Download game information.

  • Support to have saved the front cover, back, left side, right side, top and bottom. etc.

It's compiled in Raspbian as follows:

git clone gr-lida && cd $_
sudo apt-get install -y qtbase5-dev qt5-qmake qtchooser zlib1g-dev qtmultimedia5-dev libqt5multimediawidgets5 libqt5multimedia5-plugins libqt5multimedia5 qtscript5-dev
make -j4
sudo make install
