4.0-5908-4.0-5930 multiple versions

#2 Updated by AHeinerm about 5 years ago

I'm on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, Intel Core i7-2620M, Intel Sandybridge Mobile and Dolphin itself works fine.

#3 Updated by skidau about 5 years ago

Which input plugin(s) are you using for the controller? e.g. xinput, xinput2, sdl etc.

Try clearing (making a backup of) the Dolphin Config folder. If that works, please provide a link to a zip file of the non-working Config folder so that I can inspect it.

Can you compile a debug build and paste a backtrace?

#4 Updated by yxmline about 5 years ago

To find the source of the problem in the software version is too low sdl2
But sdl2 based software can not be used

#5 Updated by skidau about 5 years ago

yxmline, does PR2246 fix this issue for you?

#6 Updated by skidau about 5 years ago

#8 Updated by yxmline about 5 years ago

#9 Updated by skidau about 5 years ago

yxmline, why do you not update sdl2 to the newest version?

#10 Updated by yxmline about 5 years ago

Official sources in the libsdl2 package name is libsdl2-2.0-0
ppa third party source in the libsdl2 package name is libsdl2
kodi dependent libsdl2 package name is libsdl2-2.0-0
Two packages conflict

#11 Updated by skidau about 5 years ago

I have updated PR2246 which should fix this issue.

#12 Updated by wifomstaff about 5 years ago

I have also devised a work-around on the user side

you'll need to make your own deb for ease of use, and so its far easier to remove if you screw it up, but here are the steps I used, since I was having the same problem in mint.

first you'll need to download the zip for sdl 2.0.4 from here

sudo apt-get install checkinstall

then navigate to where you extracted the source for libsdl2.0.4
build it
then run

sudo checkinstall

and when it prompts you tell checkinstall the deb its going to make replaces libsdl2-2.0-0
