from terminal you’ve to use sudo commandsmatticusParticipant07/04/2014 at 22:52Post count: 51
In ES Hit f4 to exit to command prompt. Use the command
and choose a password. Then when you go to connect via winscp, enter root as the username and your new password as the passwordThomasGuest07/04/2014 at 22:53Post count: 908

i want to do my changes in the retroarch menu of the running rom…
but if i activate save on exit —>> nothing
and if i want to save to a new config, it shows ” cant save to /opt/
how can i get always root rights in the running retropie
if I use the retroarch menu to edit settings within a rom and I go to “save new retroarch” or whatever it says, I get the error “cannot save to retropie/configs/a…”jakko36Participant07/05/2014 at 11:15Post count: 11
Same happend to me with Mame4all-pi, i did not have permission to save the config to opt/retropie…… etc etc.
What i found was to do this in terminal: sudo chmod 777 (the map you need permission for) then go back mame4all-pi and you can map your buttons and save the config.
The same thing works with retroarch.
you will need root acces to cfg the most emulators.nemo93Participant07/05/2014 at 13:38Post count: 51
I was a bit reluctant to propose this workaround as I haven’t tested it thoroughly but given the increasing number of posts about it here we go!
Launch a command line and issue the following command:
$ sudo chown -R pi:pi /opt/retropie/
You should end up with:
$ ls -la /opt/retropie/ total 24 drwxr-xr-x 6 pi pi 4096 Jul 1 22:40 . drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 4096 Jul 1 21:34 .. drwxr-xr-x 17 pi pi 4096 Jul 1 21:47 configs drwxr-xr-x 13 pi pi 4096 Jul 1 21:42 emulatorcores drwxr-xr-x 24 pi pi 4096 Jul 1 22:30 emulators drwxr-xr-x 5 pi pi 4096 Jul 1 22:31 supplementary
Let me know if this does improve your situation.

May want to only do the configs subfolder?
This is certainly better than using the root user though imho.ribenickelParticipant07/05/2014 at 21:13Post count: 14
As a windows user and linux starter i like to change my retroarch files inside a gui. To do that i type “sudo su” in shell to get root acces and afterwards “startx” to enter rasbian gui then i can open the file via leaf and save changes. After I’m done i just reboot to loose root acess again…
