Low resolution/no options in Ubuntu
When I’m at the screen we’re talking about it’s a purple background instead of my desktop background which seems weird.
It's not weird, it's the default gnome-terminal background in Ubuntu. Since
runcommandruns in the terminal, you see this probably for the error in
Also... just noticed when the runcommand screen reloads it says this in the corner:
sed: -e Expression #1, char 51: unterminated ‘s’ command

@mitu gotcha. Thanks for your help and patience. Rasp pi and this are my only Linux experiences so far!
Which Ubuntu version are you using ?
@mitu 20.04 lts
I think I may have found the culprit, but I'll tag @psyke83 since the new X11 runcommand video mode selection is his expertise.
I think the matching for the
xrandrXID mode is not taking into account it's a hexcode, for the xrandr output in this topic, no video mode is detected. Seems to work with this change.
Hmm I made those changes and still getting the same problem, unfortunately.
runcommandpackage needs to be re-installed after you add those modifications, since the file you modified is the repository version, not the one used to launch games.
The diff was mostly as a reference for @psyke83, but if you want to try them out, you should reinstall the
runcommandpackage from the RetroPie-Setup script (without updating) and see if it fixes the issue with
runcommand. After that you should revert the changes you've done, otherwise you'll not be able to update because of the local modifications you made to the repository.
That did it! Options restored and working! Thanks again for your expertise and patience. So I need to revert my changes and reinstall before the next update?

You need to revert the changes, but not reinstall, since this would get you the
runcommandversion that has the issue you reported. The same would happen if you're doing an update. At some point we'll add a fix for this issue, so you'll be able to update normally.
@mitu perfect. Keep being awesome
