How to package up your configs into a zip

Post by Floob » Sun Jun 19, 2016 6:26 pm

If you are looking to share your config files so others can help you, this may help you do that

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install zip
cd ~
zip -rq configs.zip /opt/retropie/configs/ -x /opt/retropie/configs/all/emulationstation/downloaded_images/\*
You can use an FTP client to copy off the configs.zip that is created to your PC. It will be in /home/pi directory.

Or you can simply zip the SAMBA share that is under the \\retropie\configs path instead.

Then upload the configs.zip file to a service like this:
http://filebin.ca/
http://www.tinyupload.com/
