  • Hi everyone!

    Lately I have been using i3wm in my debian machine and I'm happy with it. I can make emulation station works but when I try to open a game it doesnt launch. Whenever I wan to play I have to relog in my desktop using gnome and it works just fine. I think its something about launching applications but i dont know what it is. Can anyone help me?

    Use the shortcut provided by RetroPie (rpie) to launch EmulationStation. If that doesn't work on i3, then take the command from it and use it, don't just launch 'emulationstation'.


  • I took the command from the retropie.desktop application which was

    gnome-terminal --hidemenubar -e emulationstation
    

    Now it works smooth.
    Thanks!
