Hey everybody, I’m excited to join the forums over here.
I have been installing Retroarch on a number of systems recently. While doing so I learned about the “retroarch disc project” which was implemented in 2019, but I was surprised to find the feature available in some versions but not others.
When I read about the feature here https://www.libretro.com/index.php/category/retroarch-disc-project/ it says that it should be available in Linux and Windows versions of Retroarch.
I found the feature to be available to be available in Windows with an added Retroarch installation as well as on a Lakka USB version running on the same machine (I guess this what the Linux part above refers to).
I understand that the feature is not implemented in Lakka running on a Pi board, but what surprised me is that I also can’t see the feature in a fresh Ubuntu setup running the latest (August 2020) Retroarch build.
As much as I appreciate Lakka for what it is, I find the Retroarch versions runnings in Windows or on (a full) Linux much easier to navigate (plus I obviously prefer Ubunto to Windows), which ultimately leads to my question:
Why don’t I get the the disc features (load disc & dump disc) from Retroarch running on Ubuntu ? The statement from the Retroarch page “available in Linux and Windows” made it sound as it should be available - just like on Windows.
Any hints would be appreciated!
