Hotkeys stored in Hotkeys.ini works well in game launched with dolphin-emu but not when launched with dolphin-emu-cli (nogui version).

Hotkeys works: dolphin-emu Resident\ Evil\ 4\ (PAL).gcz

dolphin-emu r9958 compiled from AUR in Arch Linux.

Is the issue present in the latest stable version?
Last stable version is too old :)

If the issue isn't present in the latest stable version, which is the first broken version? (You can find the first broken version by bisecting. Windows users can use the tool and anyone who is building Dolphin on their own can use git bisect.)

If your issue is a graphical issue, please attach screenshots and record a three frame fifolog of the issue if possible. Screenshots showing what it is supposed to look like from either console or older builds of Dolphin will help too. For more information on how to use the fifoplayer, please check here:

I'm facing the same after update my version to Dolphin 5.0-9989 (building from github master).

I suspect that the change made in that moved the keyevents from MainNoGui to PlatformX11.cpp is the reason.
