A second roadblock that I could use some help with:
Using the TankStick button binding guide here ((Pre-RetroArch 1.7.2) X-Arcade Tankstick & Dual Joystick Config) I have an updated retroarch.cfg file ready to swap in. I know where to put it (the etc folder) and can access that location… but despite trying both Transmit and Cyberduck on my Mac, I can’t get the file to replace. I can’t delete the existing file either. So close!
I get an error that would seem to be permissions related. That’s an easy fix in these apps, but both of them refuse to change permissions on either the existing cfg file, or the etc folder.
I’m logged into my pi using login root and password root, so I feel like I should have full access. Am I missing something? Surely someone “owns” these files and folders, but it doesn’t seem to be me
