Restarting First Time Wizard!
#1
Hi all,

So I'm running retropie with the emulation station front end on ubuntu server 18.04 (no desktop) and it's working great.

To install pcsx2 I followed - https://github.com/PCSX2/pcsx2/wiki/Installing-on-Linux

I've added the following into emulation station to list the menu option and launch the emulator 

<system>
    <name>ps2</name>
    <fullname>Sony Playstation 2</fullname>
    <path>/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/ps2</path>
    <extension>.iso .ISO .cue .mdf .nrg .dump</extension>
    <command>/usr/games/PCSX2 --fullscreen --nogui %ROM%</command>
    <theme>ps2</theme>
    </system>


After launching the emulator the first time wizard pops up but it just restarts when pressing next.

In the terminal, l did see this error - 

[WX] Failed to create a temporary file name (error 2: No such file or directory)
[WX] can't open user configuration file


To clear that error i ran - 

chmod -R 777 /home/pi/.config/PCSX2

The only output i see in the terminal now is "Restarting First Time Wizard" and it repeats every time i press next.

Any help would be great

Can you paste the full log from the Terminal when you launch PCSX2? Probably you should not start it the first time using the commandline arguments you use, what happens if you start it directly (without any arguments)? How did you install PCSX2 and which version do you use(There are various options: Default repository (1.4.0), Ubuntu PPA (1.5.0-dev) or manual installation (could be anything))?
Tired of always changing your PCSX2 Configuration for different games?

Sorry this error still exists -

I'm finding it a little difficult to start from a terminal as the system has no GUI unless emulation station is running.

Where would the PCSX config file be stored in Linux? I'm hoping if I manually created one this problem will go away

What happens if your remove the parameters from your command and start it as before?
<command>/usr/games/PCSX2 --fullscreen --nogui %ROM%</command> -> <command>/usr/games/PCSX2</command>

Again, how exactly did you install PCSX2?

To install pcsx2 I followed - https://github.com/PCSX2/pcsx2/wiki/Installing-on-Linux and choose the ubuntu PPA.

I still end up stuck at the same screen when removing the parameters.

Hm okay, so you should now be on v1.7.0-dev I guess. Maybe PCSX2 starts in portable mode for you.
- What are the contents of your /usr/games/ folder? If there's a portable.ini-file, delete it.
- Please delete your ~./config/PCSX2 folder, to restart the config from scratch.
- What user runs the application? Maybe not the default one, make sure to get the permission to write to it's home.*
- Where on the physical volume is your home directory located? On an ext4-Partition?
- What's the output of "ls -lh $HOME/.config/" ? (Feel free to shorten the list, just to show overhaul permissions)

*To check which user, run PCSX2, open a TTY and put the output from command "ps aux | grep PCSX2" here.
