retrosmc by mcobit
Easy script to get RetroPie installed alongside OSMC
This contains work from the RetroPie project as well as some open source libraries and binaries like SDL1.2/2 etc. Also this is an alpha release right now. So I am not responsible for anything you do with this to your system.
I got something for the brave who want to test it:
Disclaimer and other useful information. Read before installing!
First things first: I am NOT responsible if this does any harm to your system! I suggest only to install this on a system that the old installer wasn't run on already. You should have at least 2 GB of free space on your SD card.
Please report bugs and don't expect everything to work. This is now a full RetroPie installation, all scripts and files should be present.
This will only work on a Raspberry Pi 1, 2 or 3! NOT on the Vero.
- SSH into your OSMC installation. The default account is
osmcand the password is also
- Move to the home directory
cd /home/osmcand download the installation script
- Make the script executable
chmod +x install-retrosmc.sh.
- Run the script
You will see a pretty self-explanatory menu. Choose what you want to do and wait for a while.
If you are installing Retrosmc, please choose "Basic Installation" when the RetroPie-Setup menu pops up. When the Binaries Installation finished, choose "cancel" to return to the Retrosmc menu.
You can exit the menu by choosing "cancel" at the bottom after every task.
If you have installed the "Launcher Addon", after a restart of OSMC (Kodi), you will find your shortcut in the Program add-ons in OSMC.
Custom Menu Item
If you want to create a custom menu item, here is a little symbol for you, that I hope, matches the OSMC skin style.
The link should contain the following command:
- RetroPie (Took the
rootfsfrom the RetroPie project - You folks rock!)
- OSMC (Our beloved platform this is running on - Keep up the good work!)
jcnventura3for the launcher add-on - Just works
- Thanks to all testers
