    hey guys, trying to add xbmc to my emulationstation install following this post:

    Adding XBMC to RetroPie

    when I get to this step:

    nano ~/.emulationstation/es_systems.cfg

    it opens empty, I have tried to do this a few times and I got it open before and it had all of the settings for all emulators in it, what am I doing wrong? I have tried in both:

    1.0 location: ~/.emulationstation
    2.0 location: /etc/emulationstation/

    and same empty file, I know by typing “nano ~/.emulationstation/es_systems.cfg” if there is no file there it will open a blank one and that is what it seems to be doing.



    was a typo that kept me from accessing it lol
