The information about new PS2 emulator for a bit list of operation systems was dicovered in world wide web. Offical website of Play! emulator is . I thought it could be a good idea to test the pre-compiled build for Linux. But errors were found:

./Play!-1ab0fa30-x86_64.AppImage: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ version `CXXABI_1.3.11' not found (required by ./Play!-1ab0fa30-x86_64.AppImage)

./Play!-1ab0fa30-x86_64.AppImage: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ version `GLIBCXX_3.4.22' not found (required by ./Play!-1ab0fa30-x86_64.AppImage)

One of the solutions is to install gcc-4.9 from unknown repository:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gcc-4.9 g++-4.9

But this variant didn't the job.
Another variant is to set gcc-4.9 as the main library.

The --slave, with g++, will cause g++ to be switched along with gcc, to the same version. But, at this point gcc-4.9 will be your only version configured in update-alternatives, so add 4.8 to update-alternatives, so there actually is an alternative, by using:

sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/gcc gcc /usr/bin/gcc-4.9 60 --slave /usr/bin/g++ g++ /usr/bin/g++-4.9

Then you can check which one that is set, and change back and forth using:

sudo update-alternatives --config gcc

But in my case the solution was found installing the libstdc++6 package:

sudo apt-get install libstdc++6


You can check if the library has the versions you need CXXABI_1.3.11 and GLIBCXX_3.4.22 by command:

strings /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ | grep CXX


BTW, emulator couldn't run two disk images, that was on hand at that moment.
