Can i run Emulation Station without retropie on linux?



  • Hi everyone.
    Im using retroarch on my Xubuntu desktop computer. I play my retro games with retroarch, but i would like a more friendly graphical user interface so my little girl can play Snes and PSX games without asking me too much how to do it (she is just four years old), and i think Emulation Station is the answer for this.
    So, what do i need to make it work with retroarch?
    Thanks in advance.

    @camjrp You need to install it first, then follow the documentation on how to configure your es_systems.cfg so that it starts RetroArch with the right cores on the SNES/PSX games.
    As an example, RetroPie uses something like

    retroarch -L <PATH_TO_CORES>/snes9x_libretro.so  %ROM%"
    

    to start RetroArch with the right Libretro core for the SNES system.
