Hi I have installed RetroPie 2 image from a user and it works great but when I try to run startx command I get a little white screen showing the command prompt but you can’t do anything. I was hoping to use this to connect my wifi dongle. It is almost like the image does not have the rasping GUI?
Any ideas? I have updated and upgraded the image to no effect?
Other than this my controls and games work perfect :-)

There is no Raspian GUI.
They stripped it since 2.4.
Theres other ways to set up your wi-fi using the command prompt.
Maybe this will help!

The GUI made it easier to map a drive to my network storage and drag / drop files I needed to the Pi. Is there a similar procedure I can employ now that the GUI is gone?chdez77076Participant02/10/2015 at 14:42Post count: 66raoulangelParticipant02/10/2015 at 14:51Post count: 60
I tried that, it doesn’t see it on the network. I even enabled SSH.. It worked fine with Piplay but I do not like that interface..herbfargusMember02/10/2015 at 18:44Post count: 1858
Its pretty easy to set up the WiFi dongle through the terminal without the need for the wpa-gui. See post #6436 at http://www.petrockblock.com/forums/topic/getting-wifi-working-with-retropie/
It worked well for me. I then used winscp to connect. IP typically will be 192.168.0.110 with username pi and password raspberry. (Or username root depending on if you need to modify other files)
