retropie_setup.sh crashing via ES and controls strange
I have two issues that seem to have come together. When I open retropie_setup.sh from the ES menu it flashes up and then crashes back to ES. If I open up bluetooth or config editor a few times they also crash but then I can then open the menu.
Once the menu is open the x button no longer works as select it now uses L1. I cant understand why the mapping has changed without me editing it.
I'm running on Ubuntu with a standard install of 18.04.1 LTS, the only recent change I've made was to set the desktop environment to 720p instead of 1080p. Also opening retropie_setup.sh via ssh works fine.

Thanks for any ideas
Are you running the setup script(s) as
root- did you do the installation as a regular user ?
If you exit Emulationstation (via F4 or from the menu) and then open a terminal and type the script setup command, do you still get an error ?
I did install as root, and it works ok when I open it in the terminal (and also via ssh)
The controller mapping is still strange (L1 for the enter/accept command)
@kyuzumaki I don't think installing as
rootis a very well tested configuration, though I'm not sure if it's unsupported. I'd advise to use a normal user and don't use
rootto run your regular desktop - regardless if you're just running RetroPie or not.
The setup script also keeps logs on every execution, in the
$HOME/RetroPie-Setup/logsfolder, you might look there for any error messages that might be associated with the script not working.
@kyuzumaki i have the same issue with retropie_setup. From terminal command happens the same
@viviros Without providing a bit of logs, it's hard to gauge what can be causing this. Provide more info about your system (see https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/3/read-this-first for the information you can add) and maybe open a separate topic.
@mitu sorry i am running from Android i ll make it tomorrow
Curiously, I have something similar on 18.04.1, which is also a recent thing. I just stumbled across this post but already made my own thread with my own findings this evening:
Let me know if I can help grab any further information here to get this resolved.
