emulationstation settings not saving

Post by Feynamn1 » Wed Jun 12, 2019 10:56 pm

Whenever I set the theme or game collections for emulationstation they return to the default whenever it boots again. I've tried restaring emulationstation, quitting emulationstation then shutting down, and shutting down from emulationstation but I keep getting the same result. How do I keep the settings fixed?

You need to SSH in to the pi and run the following command (case sensitive):

Code: Select all

sudo chown -R pi:pi /opt/retropie/configs
It's a permissions issue that should be fixed in the next update.
