For what’s it’s worth I managed to get it to work, although I’m not 100% sure which particular step did the trick for me. I performed the steps recommended by theguyonthecouch, but that didn’t seem to do the trick. What finally seemed to fix it was selecting a generic logitech keyboard in the keyboard layout settings in the raspi-config script, and forcing it to be a generic US keyboard. After a reboot it worked like a charm. I’m wondering if using the generic 104 key keyboard I was originally trying to use was the cause of the problem.
I have been able to mostly work around the issue so far, but there are a few keys characters needed for command line work (like “|,” for instance), that I haven’t been able to find using the current keyboard layout.
Mavic19, are you saying you tried the same procedure as me to change the keyboard locale, and it didn’t work for you either? Is there some bug in the current build of retropie that’s somehow preventing me from getting the proper keyboard layout?
