    I’m very new to Rasberry PI, Retropie and Linux.

    Goal for my Raspberry pie is to keep it simple. Simplify as much as possible.

    How can I remove unwanted emulators like ScummVM and Apple II, which I will never use?

    How can I add emulators like NES, SNES, GBA and so on, which I want to use?
