I’m trying to install a Nintendo emulator on my Mint 16 Mate system. The two I’ve tried are FCEUX and Nestopia. I’ve installed the scons builder, the required libraries and the g++ compiler. All seem to be working fine but in both cases I’m hitting a snag which prevents either emulator being setup. Here’s the terminal output when I try to execute the scons file in my FCEUX folder:
lee@lee-P4i65G ~/Downloads/fceux-2.2.1 $ scons scons: Reading SConscript files ... platform: posix Checking for C function asprintf()... (cached) yes Checking for inflate in C library z...

I don’t think that the libgd thing is a critical issue. The problem seems to be with the missing sdl-config file. I’ve checked it is there on my system but the icon has an “X” in the corner and under Properties is labelled as broken. Can anyone help me with this?
