Apple II on Raspberry Pi

C’mon let’s all die of dysentery on the Oregon Trail!

Update: You probably want to use instead of Linapple-Pie these days.

Building and installing the linapple-pie Apple IIe emulator is relatively easy on the Raspberry Pi:

sudo apt install libcurl4-openssl-dev libzip-dev zlib1g-dev libsdl1.2-dev libsdl-gfx1.2-dev libsdl-image1.2-dev libsdl-sound1.2-dev build-essential git
git clone
cd linapple-pie/src
sudo make install

This also works on an x86_64 Ubuntu machine. It does also install on a PocketCHIP (even if it takes a really long time) but I can’t get the display resolution to fit correctly.


  1. … although running it on the PocketCHIP might only take adding

            Screen factor   = 0.5

    to /usr/local/linapple/linapple.conf. The PocketCHIP’s 480×272 display won’t easily do 80 column mode set up this way.

    The PocketCHIP’s function keys are also flaky, so starting the emulator might be a challenge
