Im on latest openauto pro version.

imake this file File:

insert this content with my own paths from echo $PATH


I did chmod +x the file.

i edited openauto_applications.ini and put this content:

Arguments=-e ./ --hold

if i test to launch the script ./ from terminal on the pi i get this error:

Oct 09 18:24:26 lvl0: Error creating SDL window!
Could not get EGL display
Oct 09 18:24:26 lvl0: Renderer failed to initialize!
Oct 09 18:24:26 lvl0: Window failed to initialize!

if I from the same terminal while at desktop enter this to terminal
ssh pi@
enter passwd
and just write emulationstation
it launches retropie with no issues playing games, and I can quit the software and return to openauto.

I dont understand what the different running level while using ssh or just the terminal, same user, same commands, same desktop.
Is ssh in a deeper terminal level?

I did a RetroPie install on OAP 11.0, but in that case I did run the OS upgrade and install commands first.  It seemed not much was updated.  When you open a terminal from the desktop are you logged in as pi user - the same user you are logging in as via ssh?

Is the echo $PATH result the same comparing the ssh login results to the results from the desktop?

I don't have the same failures you are seeing launching the .sh script from command line.  Maybe google the errors and see what you get.
yes I use same user, and I get same PATH if I test locally on my pi and externally through ssh.
I did os upgrade and then I installed retropie, im running Raspberry Pi 3B+.
Did you install RetroPie/-Arch like this?

This guide always worked although it's a bit old.

I used the RetroPie documented "manual" installation method - which is OS specific. I used the git method to download the setup scripts, 

git clone --depth=1

and then executed the installation

Here is their documentation:
