Retropie Manager - workaround for Buster?
BazzCatt last edited by BazzCatt
As, I suppose, its users know, the indispensable Retropie Manager ( https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Manager ), the tool that would sometimes save your system and that should always be on, is not maintained anymore, and, apparently, a developer deleted its source from Github for some reason - and attempting to recompile it from RP's experimental package menu only results in a Github login prompt and an error...
...which seems to cause an issue after upgrading to Buster: it cannot start, presumably since it was compiled on an older version of the system.
I've tried replacing /RetroPie-Setup/scriptmodules/supplementaryretropie-manager.sh with https://raw.githubusercontent.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup/master/scriptmodules/supplementary/retropie-manager.sh - but the result is still the same, "username / password for github; error running git pull".
Is there any way to restore this must-have tool on Buster now? If it was an emulator, that's one thing, but this is a potential system-saver...
@BazzCatt you don't need to manually install that file. It's included in RetroPie.
To resolve the login prompt issue, make sure RetroPie-Setup is up to date. Then remove and reinstall retropie-manager (important to remove the old repository version).

Ah, so that was it, thanks! I tried to update it without removing the older version first.
