Using retropie on Latest Ubuntu / Mint (20.4)
Contacting with team agreed to open a topic for setup problem of retropie on newly installed Linux Mint 20. (I assume same issue for Ubuntu users). So the setup script stops with message: "unsupported OS" the editing of system.sh did not help.
Please help me how to install retropie to the above mentioned systems. Thanks a lot.
RetroPie installs fine on Ubuntu 20.04 - what release of Linux Mint are you using specifically ?
Im using Linux Mint 20. With 19 it was OK.
I'll check this, but you said you got an error building in the email you sent. Please can you post a log of that. Thanks.
It should recognise LinuxMint now - so you can update and try and if you have a build issue, report back with a log.
It broke because Linux Mint changed their distributor id from LinuxMint to Linuxmint. Your screenshot you sent via email reported an error in sdl2 - but our custom sdl2 should not be built by default on Ubuntu/LinuxMint unless you have
own_sdl = "1"in
@BuZz thanks I'll check!
It is perfect guys. I'm so surprised that you were so kind and helpful and smart and could fix this issue very qiuck. I'm really appreciate your kindness and help. Never found this kind of support like here on this forum. I wish you the best and thank you for your effort!

@csocsoi - Thinking of installing RetroPie on Mint 20 myself today, any issues to report? Reasons to use older Mint rev?
