Raspbian | Desktop Back To EmulationStation Icon
Previously I covered how to create a desktop icon so programs could easily be launched from the desktop. This post will show you how to create an additional icon to launch back into EmulationStation. I prefer to launch into EmulationStation were I have created an “apps” menu and can launch into the desktop environment (or Kodi media steamer). This icon allows me to get back into Emulationstations from the desktop.
Turns out all you need to do is kill xorg! try it.
Now, as detailed before create a file on your desktop called: emulationstation.desktop
