Attract Mode running on Solus Budgie
« on: October 16, 2018, 11:42:16 PM »
OK, I've got Attract Mode up and running and can point it to roms, snaps and all artwork within the program itself.  When I've run it on Ubuntu before I could set most of it up by editing the emulator config files.  For some reason I can't find them on Solus.  I've looked everywhere and can only find default-emulator.cfg and that has only a few lines in and not anything to to do with different systems.  Can anyone tell me where Atari 2600.cfg file would be or others that I have set up?  It's not in /usr/share/attract/emulators.  No cfg files are in there.

Not in either.  Attract is not in the home directory.

As hermine.potter mentions, the "attract" folder is hidden in Linux. It's called ".attract".

Your emulators.cfg files should be located in "~/.attract/emulators" (which is the same as /home/<username>/.attract/emulators).

Just to be clear, these emulator.cfg files need to be created and don't exist by default in most cases.
