PSP Management in Ubuntu

QPSPManager is a nifty little application for managing your save files, videos, etc on your PSP. Most of the installation instructions can be found at the Ubuntu Community wiki. They are, however, a little out-dated. These instructions should have QPSPManager up and running in no time.

First, visit the QPSPManager site and download the source.

Next,

sudo apt-get update

and

sudo apt-get install build-essential libqt4-dev zlib1g zlib1g-dev qt4-dev-tools

to install the dependencies.

When that is done, open up a terminal and navigate to wherever you downloaded the source tar.gz to, unpack it and navigate into the directory.

cd ~/Desktop
tar -xzf qpspmanager-2.0.2.tar.gz
cd qpspmanager-2.0.2

The last few steps to type are

qmake

and when that is done

make
sudo make install

It has been advised that “make install” probably won’t work. If that is the case then you can move the binary to an appropriate place yourself. I recommend

sudo mkdir /opt/QPSPManager
sudo mv bin/QPSPManager /opt/QPSPManager/QPSPManager
sudo ln -s /opt/QPSPManager/QPSPManager /usr/bin/QPSPManager

Which should allow you to run QPSPManager from the terminal by typing…

QPSPManager
