Play Prince of Persia on Ubuntu Linux using DOSBox
To play the classic DOS games on Ubuntu (or any other OS), you have to use a DOS emulator. I personally prefer DOSBox, which works on Linux and Windows.
- Install DOSBox- Download Prince of Persia- Start playing
Install with aptitude.
sudo aptitude update sudo aptitude install dosbox
Download Prince of Persia (classic)
Create a directory called
games. Mine is located under
Download Prince of Persia from here. Unzip and copy the files to
Start DOSBox first.
It starts the emulator which looks like this:
Lets mount the games directory. Go to the DOS shell and type this substituting USER for your username:
mount c /home/USER/games c: cd prince prince1
This will start Prince of Persia. You can download and play other classic DOS games the same way. ENJOY!
You can get more games from dosgames.com and dosgamesarchive.com. Here are some links.
