Emulator Issues #11779
[Linux] DolphinBar Is Not Reconized As A Device
I have a DolphinBar that I got from Amazon years ago and has always worked on Windows. I now using Linux Mint 19.1 and the DolphinBar is not recognized as a device in the Dolphin Emulator. I downloaded Dolphin through the Linux Mint Software Repo and it is version 5.0. I also tried copying the code in the Github link and naming it into a file and naming the file "51-usb-device.rules" and saving it into my "/etc/udev/rules.d/" directory but still nothing.
I download the latest version using these commands
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:dolphin-emu/ppa sudo apt update sudo apt install dolphin-emu-master
But I have a new problem which is that when I load a game an error message appears saying...
Warning Failed to initialize video backend!
I even tried to change the Graphics settings but nothing seems to work. However when I tried to configure my Wiimote, I clicked the Refresh button in the controller settings and tapped A & B on my Wiimote and I felt it vibrate for a second which makes me believe the Dolphinbar is working on the latest Dev build. But I am unable to launch a game to test it to confirm that it is working.
Once I get this backend issue resolved I will report back on weather the latest Dolphin development version fixed this issue.
