[HowTo] RetroPie and OSMC: Retrosmc - Retrogaming on OSMC

#1457

Hello,

I also have retropie installed and could try one or the other emulator. :slight_smile: Many thanks for the work and time invested here.

I wanted to test the package Steamlink (under Experimental) in Retropie. Unfortunately, the installation does not work. Has anyone tried or knows what it fails?

Thank you for looking

That’d be “Unable to locate package”. Since your RetroPie already is on Debian Stretch, it’s not a major version problem. Basically, RetroPie is unable to find the steamlink package in the repositories in which you told it to look for it. Usually you edit your /etc/apt/sources.list to get around that but I’m not quite sure how to do that in the environment of RetrOSMC. You could try running ./install-retrosmc.sh and choose 4 from the menu, Update scripts.

For those interested: https://github.com/osmc/osmc/issues/505

some fixes to a2dp-app-osmc to fix audioproblems with systemwide pulseaudio, it worked for me :slight_smile:

hi, is there updated instructions for installing under the latest OSMC build (18.2)

I’ve done a clean build onto 2 boxes and i get an error when downloading the script, although this still appears to work, however nothing happens when i try to launch it.

Can’t confirm, download works as intended.

Your screenshot doesn’t look like PuTTY. Which ssh client do you use?

#1462

‘doh’ my bad, I used terminal rather than putty. thanks for your reply.
