this is the week-end about trying to make work properly RetroArch.
When the GUI is loaded a pop-up tells there are missing assets and to use the online updater; while it seems that the updater is actually downloading and extracting each of those files eventually those files aren’t in the
$HOME/.config/downloads, and shaders and other stuff like logs are missing, at least based on the default directories.
At this point I am not really sure if those files are actually downloaded, maybe they are but not properly extracted because some permissions error, I don’t know since I cannot find any RetroArch logs.
Long-story short: a lot of stuff like shaders are missing, for instance
/usr/share/libretro/shaders is missing, and using the online-updater is not working properly; it looks for instance that is downloading the shaders but those aren’t anywhere.
