    In ES Hit f4 to exit to command prompt. Use the command
    sudo passwd
    and choose a password. Then when you go to connect via winscp, enter root as the username and your new password as the password

    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…”

    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.

    Hi Guys,

    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.
    cheers,

    May want to only do the configs subfolder?

    This is certainly better than using the root user though imho.

    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…

    Hi guys,
    I have a big problem. The ps3 controller doesn’t work for me, too, but there is no “minimal.CPP”. The whole src-folder isn’t there.
    Thanks for help.
    Cheers
