    You bad...
    Code:
    apt-get install debhelper cmake nasm libsdl1.2-dev libgl-dev libgtkmm-2.4-dev libgtkglextmm-x11-1.2-dev libavcodec-dev libavformat-dev libswscale-dev libavutil-dev wx-common libcairo2-dev liblircclient-dev libopenal-dev libwxgtk2.8-dev libsfml-dev imagemagick zip subversion
    svn co https://vbam.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/vbam/trunk/ vbam
    cd vbam
    cmake
    make;make install
    
    Anyway this is GBA topic rather than NDS one...

    Theoretically it can be even VBA 1.7.2 or 1.8.0 or just any "normal" VBA if we talk about using Wine
    VBA is not perfect anyways so bleh...
    There was also some front-end to Linux VBA but it's a bit complicated to install it (very old package and such)

    EDIT #1
    I have gave up emulator and just play games on my DS or GBA, way better sound, no emulation included &c.
