Press F4
hit another buttton to keep Es from relaunching
type: cd /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/ports
hit enter
type: sudo chown pi:pi kodi.sh
hit enter

To explain what’s going on here:

‘cd /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/ports’ get you into the directory where kodi.sh resides

‘sudo’ gives the user you are currently logged in with root permissions, which we need to run the chown command.

‘chown’ is the command to change ownership of a file, in this case kodi.sh.

‘pi:pi’ refers to the pi user.
