Hello everyone! I recently got my Raspberry Pi to work with RetroPie, and I absolutely love it. Yet, when I was searching on Google to look for possibilities to use both RetroPie and Xbmc, I found video, which shows exactly what I’d love to achieve. Of course, I already started to search for *how* he did it, and I found this:
So far so good, this makes a new folder in my apps folder, that allows me to include the Xbmc file.
And the tutorial told me that I needed to create a test.
And in that file type:
Okay, I get that. Now I have a test application. What I want to know, is how to get an .sh file for Xbmc. Anyone who can help me?RazorX2014Participant04/30/2014 at 14:11Post count: 41
create a file called xbmc.sh and add
then save it and goto its location on terminal and run sudo chmod +x xbmc.sh then put the sh file in the apps folder if you havnt already and that should be itroyenroyParticipant04/30/2014 at 16:30Post count: 14
After the chmod command the xbmc file doesn’t change, and thus the ’emulator’ won’t show up in Emulationstation. Due to the direct response, I’m guessing that this didn’t install Xbmc, as that should’ve taken longer.RazorX2014Participant04/30/2014 at 16:37Post count: 41
that wasnt to install xbmc it was to launch it and the chmod command makes the sh file executable.
install xbmc first then try it try xbmc instead of sudo xbmc if it doesnt launch it.royenroyParticipant04/30/2014 at 17:00Post count: 14

What do you mean with ‘install xmbc first’. Excuse me, I’m a beginner in all this. When I try to Google it, I get a lot of hits with seperate OS’s and images, and I want to keep my current image.RazorX2014Participant04/30/2014 at 17:04Post count: 41
