Unfortunately, I had a lot of trouble trying to install the latest version of Snes9x on my Debian PC and the README provided by the source files was quite unhelpful. After about 4 hours of messing around trying to find what was missing from my computer I was finally able to properly install Snes9x on my computer; so I decided to make a script with everything I had to do to install it for when I needed to do so again, so I'm sharing that script here for anyone who might be having trouble installing Snes9x on Linux.
This script was created and tested on Debian 8 (Jessie), but I have no reason to believe it won't work on other Debian distributions or Ubuntu.
