Ps2 emulation on Linux (PCSX2)

I recently did a fresh install of Mint 17.3 on my desktop and I've been trying to install PCSX2. I am starting to get angry while installing PCSX2 as it keeps on removing necessary cinnamon components. What's going on here?
The repository I added was the one from their launchpad page "ppa:gregory-hainaut/pcsx2.official.ppa"

...yeah i did this 2 weeks ago.
PPA files aren't correct. You gotta get a other source for them.

I did by a mate who wasn't good with Linux this

and i got it to work.

I will not get the same performance if a build it from github?

@The_Cable

I'll try this after I try compiling it manually. Do you know why this site recommends installing the unstable version?

@The_Cable
The install from that repository still wanted to remove cinnamon :(

Never done much installing from source. Will take me a while to finger out. I'm going to download Ubuntu 16.04 and fix all of this anarchy!

I realized I had to install cmake. I don't know much of what this is telling me.

Thank you very much for all your help

Got it fixed when I installed Ubuntu 16.04.... It was rough because I had 2mb download, I would say that's a first world country problem but most of the civilized world has faster internet :'(

Looks like I'll be reliving my child hood into the early hours of the morning :D

Thanks for everyones help. Have a great day!

oh wait serious? did not knew that.

Well there 1 one reason why i like the repo over the source. Because if you don't do much Linux and you use the source version it doesn't upgrade itself automatic.
I know from my past experience that updating Linux distro usual cost things to break specially with pcsx2 in Fedora.

But good to hear you finished it have fun!
