I'm slowly learning how to package binaries for Ubuntu. Today I've compiled Desmume 0.9.11svn for Ubuntu 14.04 and packaged it up into a neat little .deb. You can find it on my google drive. Hopefully I'll be adding more little apps and utilities to the mix in the next few days. I've not made a repository yet, these are just some .debs in a directory. Download and install.
You can find my pacakges from the link below.
