I have run the emulation station setup script and copied over roms for nes, snes, and n64. But when I try to run

emulationstation

It starts up, but I am greeted with a screen that says

We can't find any systems....

Any idea how to fix this?

Also for some reason, I do not have a ~/.emulationstation directory, but the /etc/emulationstation/es_systems.cfg file has every system in there

  • Make sure you have the correct version, the Pi 1 and the Pi Zero have a different image than the Pi 2 and the Pi 3. – Patrick Cook Apr 5 '16 at 14:20
  • How can I check what image I have? I installed emulationstation in Raspbian Jessie – Kenneth Spear Apr 5 '16 at 14:36
  • Never-mind I just figured out the issue. I'll post an answer for anyone that runs into this same issue – Kenneth Spear Apr 5 '16 at 14:46

The issue for me was that I couldn't access the .emulationstation folder using cd ~/.emulationstation I had to just do cd .emulationstation. I then copied the /etc/emulationstation/es_systems.cfg file to .emulationstation and was able to get in to emulation station.
