Did you read my question? Anyways thanks for the amazing help mod, there's no reason to be ignorant. I want to type in emulationstation from a remote PC and view it on the host. That's it, I'm not retarded "hur durr did you install it?, can you type? Where did you go to school?". It's a simple question is it possible? If you type it on the remote pc it will try to run the gui within putty via the remote PC not the host Rasberry Pi via HDMI. It's a simple question, YES I INSTALLED IT, YES I CAN TYPE, YES IM LOGGED IN, YES THERES A CORD THAT SAIS HDMI IN THE PI AND TV, oh wait almost forgot the power supply. You should probably ask if SSH is enabled too and internet connections. Any other ignorant things I can think of... not entirely sure
lvl0: Error initializing SDL!
Unable to open a console terminal
Are you in the 'video', 'audio', and 'input' groups? Is X closed? Is your firmware up to date? Are you using at least the 192/64 memory split?
lvl0: Renderer failed to initialize!
lvl0: Window failed to initialize!
That's what I get when I run type "emulationstation" from my computer via SSH protocol to the raspberry pi. It works on the pi itself. Not that you care you'll probably insult me further for asking questions.
