    retroarch is not in the system path – you need to tell it where it is

    use

    
    /opt/retropie/emulators/retroarch/bin/retroarch

    Hey faysalubit,

    That didn’t help. I’m pretty sure that’s not correct as that just copies the retroarch folder retroarch to the top directory. The error still exists:

    -bash: retroarch: command not found

    just include the path when lauching. No need to add it to the system path. if you really want that – google adding paths to linux via bashrc etc

    Actually, I did try to include the path when launching and I got an error. There is a thread for that here:

    starting games from command line

    As for adding paths to linux and searching on google – I’m a novice for linux. I was able find some solutions – and I’ve tried a bunch since yesterday when I posted for help, but none are working so far.

    If you could possibly help with a more detailed solution it would help me and anyone else who may be searching for “retroarch not found” (how I found this thread).
