    I don't particularly see the point in rom managers, would rather just use a general file manager, after all, roms are just files...

    that said, if you install package "gnome-nds-thumbnailer" you will get proper thumbnails for all your roms in the gnome file manager, which is rather nice.

    I am going to guess you have never used wine, apart from a few programs it tends to not work very well. and even those that work don't integrate brilliantly with the GUI

    I actually needed one for renaming like ~80 roms, but I'm happy with gnome-nds-thumbnailer, because it's nice to actually work with nautilus (windows manager)

    Hello poeple. I know it's been a long time since this post was written. But I wanted to share a link to a UNIX shell script I wrote (use from a terminal) to check roms against No-Intro databases.
    The script compares *UNCOMPRESSED* ROMs you have with the database and tells you missing, unknown and/or duplicate files, and asks you if you want to rename the files.
    It works with all databases from No-Intro
    Those No-intro DAT files are the same used by Windows program ClrMamePro. Hope you'll find it useful.

    Get either the txt or compressed gz file (unzip the later) and don't forget to switch the "Executable" flag on before using it

    I'm not going to lie, these bumping of ridiculously old threads, is getting annoying.
