The Deck is my first experience with Linux. I’ve installed Retroarch and after playing around with different video drivers to check performance the application will no longer open. I need to get into the .cfg file so I can manually type in the default GL driver but i’m having a hell of a time trying to find the file. I have found one called Retroarch.cfg but it just shows a few file paths for different things; it’s not the same as what i’m used to seeing on Windows. Can anybody point me to where i can find teh .cfg file? It’s the one that let’s you set in things like resolution and whatnot. Thanks!
It should be located alongside the executable in a subdirectory of the steamapps directory.
It’s like that in Windows but doesn’t seem to be in Linux. I downloaded it via the Discover window. I also downloaded via the website thinking it might be different but it just directed me to the flatpak one again. The only .cfg file I can find is in ‘files/etc/Retroarch.cfg’, but it’s not the correct one
dunno then. I don’t have a steam deck, but I asked the guy who’s been working on the Steam integration and this is what he said:
I’ve resorted to doing a factory reset. Can’t think of any other option. I found the exec file but it’s in a folder on it’s own.
The answer is
you will find retroarch.cfg here.
If you install anything from discover - that’s the flatpak repository.
I was going to post this. If you install RetroArch via Flatpak, it is not located in .config/retroarch as it usually does, but goes in the directory livedeht posted.
