    So on my initial set up I may have missed something. Now I’m trying to make changes and add roms but I’m super green in Linux. Emulation station starts fine but I need to run “ifconfig” to get my IP address and use SSH to move roms and make changes. Like I said I’m not totally comfortable in command line.
    Do I need to re-do my retro pie?


    On my settings page all I have is an option for Input. What did I miss? Thanks again.



    Hey, after some button mashing I found my way out. I got what I needed. But the second question still remains.



    Hi, this tutorial should help you with the basics:
    An A to Z Beginners Guide to Installing RetroPie on a Raspberry Pi 2 B+

    Some of it’s a bit out of date now but the main things you need to know are covered. I recommend you use the pre-built RetroPie image if you aren’t already:

    If you have found the solution to your problem please mark the topic as resolved.
