    Hi all,

    First things first sorry for my bad English since it is not my native language.

    Ok so i recently bought a raspberry pi and wanted to install retropie on that.
    Everything went well till i had to configure my controller.

    The controller i have is an Retrolink SNES usb controller. It works fine in the menu but when ever i try to start an Sega game or an SNES game the controls don’t work.

    i found out that i also have 2 retroarch folders. 1 called RetroArch and one called retroarch.

    I see that the map retroarch has all the button configs (even the one i made myself in the retropi_setup. If i want to copy everything to the RetroArch folder it says i have no permission.

    How can i configure my retrolink controller so that it works on my retropie setup? i had this struggle the past 4 hours to find a fix and find a way to get my SNES usb controller to work but till now no result. i also tried to start from a fresh install.

    I’m not sure of the full paths where you say you have 2 retroarch folders.
    If it is
    /opt/retropie/emulators/RetroArch/
    /opt/retropie/emulators/retroarch/

    then you have 2.3 and 2.4 installed at once. I’d just use the 2.4.2 image and dont update it. If you use the RetroPie image you dont need to install/update the binaries etc..

    You can see how to configure controller here:
