Loading Roms onto Mintypi/Retropi over FTP

Post by syfus1101 » Fri May 22, 2020 9:30 pm

Hey folks, new to this forum and just recently got my Mintypi Lite and set it up today. I am working to load roms and running into an issue. I referenced this link - https://www.sudomod.com/wiki/index.php/ ... rring_ROMs - and attempted to load some games but I am getting the error - Failed to start proftpd.service : Unit proftpd.service not found. - Any help is greatly appreciated. I originally thought I might have had an error when I loaded the Mintypi image wermy linked in his tutorial, but after re-flashing the OS a 3rd time and updating, I'm positive that's not it. This was a super fun project and would like to enjoy the fruits of my labor :lol:

If there is potentially a different way of loading roms I am open to that as well.

You don't need to enable FTP in the retropie menu anymore. That is only for the V3. The option should be removed in the next update. So just skip that step and continue with the rest of the guide.
