    Hello All

    I’m having major issues getting this working. re installed from both source and binaries numerous times. Problems include being unable to put roms into the folder (permission denied) to missing directories. (the only folders in the retropie directory are bios and roms) Its driving me crazy. been wanting to get the amiga working but dont even have a folder to put the kick file into

    Any help much appreciated and thanks in advance, also im new to linux so be gentle



    did you use a setup guide for the 2.+ versions? I had a similar issue. The directors changed with the newer version. try looking in the /opt/ directory and you should find what you want. And it sounds like you need to give permissions to write aswell. easiest way to do it is ssh into your pi if you can get that far!
