attact mode on Ubuntu
« on: October 11, 2017, 11:49:38 AM »
Need help trying to figure out what configuration screwed up or permission issue .....

So I install Attract Mode and retropi on my Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64bit OS. Once I click on the icon to start attract mode it works and see the Roms,videos, and art work. But for some reason once I try to start and ROM/game it just blinks and doesn't start the game...

So I open the terminal on the desktop and typed attract ... to start attract mode... but the odd think is  when I run a rom/game it works.... :o :o :o :o

Any help would be appreciated if you need to see some config files or permission please let me know.

After looking to the /dev/shm/runcommand.log
Here what I found if that help anyone with suggesting
