    I am trying to update the retroarch.cfg file to add an option to exit a rom with my controller. When exit out of the terminal to the Raspian desktop, I don’t see the configuration file in the file manager. Do I need to install RetroArch seperately. I have just installed the latest version of RetroPie.

    Set up controller schemes:
    sudo chown pi /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg
    cd /opt/retropie/emulators/RetroArch/installdir/bin
    sudo ./retroarch-joyconfig -j 0 >> /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg

    Add to controller scheme:
    input_enable_hotkey_btn = “6”
    input_exit_emulator_btn = “7”
    input_enable_hotkey_btn = “6”
    input_save_state_btn = “4”
    input_enable_hotkey_btn = “6”
    input_load_state_btn = “5”

    Obviously your buttons will be different. For my config, these buttons allow me to quit out with START + Select, and save state with START + R1, load state with START + L1

    I have found the retrochar.cfg file. But I am unable to make the changes. I don’t seem to have the correct permissions. How do change the permissions to get around this problem.

    sudo chown pi /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg to get permissions

    I used the command, but the permissions are still the same. Is there an additional step before or after I put in the command that it needs
