for playing, e.g., Zork I have found the post at http://kimondo.co.uk/play-zork-on-the-raspberry-pi/.

The installation is done (as root) with these lines:


apt-get install -y frotz

wget -U firefox http://www.infocom-if.org/downloads/zork1.zip

wget -U firefox http://www.infocom-if.org/downloads/zork2.zip

wget -U firefox http://www.infocom-if.org/downloads/zork3.zip

unzip zork1.zip -n -d /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/zmachine/zork1/

unzip zork2.zip -n -d /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/zmachine/zork2/

unzip zork3.zip -n -d /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/zmachine/zork3/

rm zork1.zip

rm zork2.zip

rm zork3.zip

These are actually the installation steps made by the >>RetroPie Setup script<<, which also allows the installation of Frotz with the most recent update .
