RetroPie Installation on Ubuntu 18.04

  • Hey folks,

    Having issues getting RetroPie installed on Ubuntu. EmulatorStation, RetroArch and a few other packages fail to build. I've enclosed a link to my log file, any solutions would be gratefully received. Ta.

    Most of your problems come from a functional OpenGL libraries installation. Is there anything in particular that you modified on your system that has replaced/remove your OpenGL libraries and headers ? Did you install any 3rd party software/drivers besides the ones included in the distribution ?

  • @mitu Yep, I replaced the nouveau Nvidia driver with the official driver from the Nvidia website. A mistake I'm assuming?

    @NeoDude Not a mistake, but it seems something is missing. Do you have OpenGL acceleration working ?
    Have you used Ubuntu's installer or did you manually install the driver ? I'd recommend using the Ubuntu's PPA packages to install the drivers or the Ubuntu package management app (Software center ?).
