Is anyone here running Attractmode as a Frontend instead of Emulation Station on their Pi?
Emulationstation is integrated into retropie. You can of course try to use a different frontend and let us know if and how that works
OK, I got it running on the OSMC install with your emulationstation addition using these directions:
Also installed xinit and xterm via apt-get install.
Using the retroarch configs used by retropie for attractmode works well.
However, so far I have been unable to modify your script to launch attractmode from kodi.
To run attractmode from the command line I use this: xinit attract
It seems emulationstation doesn’t use x, so it wasn’t just a quick script change to remove references to emulationstation.
If you can guide me to modify the script to launch an x app from kodi, that would be great.
The retropie.sh script should contain a line to start emulationstation.
Change that to your program.
In the retropie-watchdog.sh script change the pgrep command from emulationstatio to your program.
I’m trying…haven’t been able to change it to launch a program in x yet…for example /usr/bin/xinit xterm
I duplicated the plugin so I can play some more…
You do not even need to change the plugin I think.
Changing the scripts should be enough.
I’d like to be able to choose Emulationstation and Attractmode, so the extra plugin will eventually be needed.
