Cant find file to add custom config on RPI

Post by gravitythedfyr »

I am using Winscp and can connect to my RPI, but when I connect I can't find where the configs are to add my own. where would this be located?

Hi

As far as I recall the config directory is located at /root/.gimx/config/

Another way you can do it is install samba and edit the config file to add a share you can directly access via the ip/hostname of the rpi

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install samba
sudo nano /etc/samba/smb.conf
[GiMX-Config]
path = /root/.gimx/config
browsable = yes
guest ok = yes
read only = no
force user = root

Then save file and restart the service

Code: Select all

sudo service smbd restart

when I open /root all I find is gimx_change_config.sh, Gimx_List_configs.sh and blink.py?

Look in these directories. Depending on your setup it should be the first one my setups normally use the root one as I use an android app to select and launch GIMX. The directory is hidden hence the . in front of the name so it has to be included.

/home/pi/.gimx/config/

/root/.gimx/config/
