Configuring drives in Linux

Post by abk4523 » Mon 03 Jun, 2019 12:21 am

I'm trying to configure PCem V15 on Linux and cannot find the option to select the floppy drive. I've played with the Windows version and the option to select the drive is in the title bar, but not in the Linux version. How do you set up the drives for Linux?

Due to limitations, it's a right click menu on linux.

Right-click the window > Disc > Change Drive A:

Thanks for the reply. I tried right clicking but don't get the PCem menu options. My install may be off. What kernel versions has PCem been tested with?

@abk4523 I'm on Kernel: 4.15.0-50-generic x86_64.

You have to right click after starting the emulated machine. You can't currently select a floppy disk/CD before starting the machine

Let me try out this instruction also. I have been having similar issues of late.

I found the problem. Gnome 3.2 uses the Wayland display server for graphics. I switched to X11 and everything is fine.
