So i like the 2.1 update, it’s full of useful updates and that new interface is sweet. However it involves a lot of relearning, like trying to find, and then edit, the retroarch.cfg file. Well the location was found pretty fast but when i go to upload my backed up retroarch.cfg via cyberduck, i’m told that i lack the necessary permissions. how do i fix this so i don’t have to manually input EVERYTHING any time i want to make a change to a file in the /opt folder?
Thanks! This got me out of a pickle since I was tweaking the overclock settings but screwed something up so using that method I was able to edit the config.txt and then remotely reboot to apply the settings.
hey, zSprawl. i like to use cyberduck to make changes to .cfg files and the like. so would using the sudo -s command allow me to make changes via programs like that? or if i used sudo-s and then used startx to get to the lxde could i then use the file explorer to make changes?
There was just one which was this one. Thomas posted his similar issue almost a day after. But thank you for the workaround.
Its just odd that in previous versions of retropie we were able to edit .cfg files without the need for permissions. Since we run ES as pi, not as root, then shouldn’t the files be somewhere that pi can do something to them? Or is it possible to set the necessary permissions in a future update?
