Subject description: How to install Dolphin on Puppy
 

So I am quite a noob with Puppy Linux, but I have managed (abeit in a very crude way I suppose) to get Dolphin to run in Puppy. On my computer I haven't managed to get it running at correct speed, but it does work quite well regardless. I had to install the .deb package, and .deb libs below to get it to work. Hopefully someone can take this info and make a nice .pet package but I don't know how to do that.

Instructions:
Install Dolphin..........https://launchpad.net/~glennric/+archive/dolphin-emu/+sourcepub/2133248/+listing-archive-extra
Install libsfml-network1.6..........http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/i386/libsfml-network1.6/download
Install libwxgtk2..........http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/i386/libwxgtk2.8-0/download
Install libwxbase..........http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/i386/libwxbase2.8-0/download
Install nvidia-cg-toolkit_3.0..........https://launchpad.net/~glennric/+archive/dolphin-emu/+sourcepub/2025264/+listing-archive-extra
Install libglew1.5..........http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/i386/libglew1.5/download
Install libsoil1..........http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/i386/libsoil1/download

!! Win at Wii !!

Basically all I did was install the emulator, then run it in terminal and see what it was missing over and over until I finally had all that it wanted, and that is how I got this file list. If it doesn't run for you, you may be missing a lib file or something else that I already had, so run it in terminal (from usr/games) and see what you are missing and go get it. Also it places Dolphin in the "Fun" section, but it will not run from there until you go to /usr/share/applications and right-click on dolphin-emu and open as text, then change line 7 to: "Exec=/usr/games/dolphin-emu/dolphin-emu" and I had to reboot before I could run it from "fun", so maybe someone will know how to fix that part as well.

The files were all of the i386 download type. I am using Lucid Puppy.

I also have all the files compressed into a tar.gz but was unable to upload here, not sure why, but I will be glad to share those with a little help getting them uploaded somewhere. Otherwise you can follow the links above for all the .deb files listed and get them that way.

You can try this: http://puppylinux.org/wikka/openal
I would say do it at your own risk, since I do not remember having to install this, and I don't see it in my package manager as being installed, but it is a dotpet, so most likely won't hurt anything.

I am using Lucid Puppy 5.2.8 and confirm I and my friend both are able to run dolphin on two different branded laptops. However we both have worked together to get most of the things installed that we wanted, so we both have essentially the same packages and libraries installed.

It would be nice if anyone else were able to get Dolphin installed on Puppy using my instructions, if they would post affirmative here. If it works, I will eventually see if I can figure out how to make a .pet of it. My biggest struggle with that, is figuring out how to indlude all the libs and stuff above into one pet package, I can't find instructions on that anywhere, maybe they each have to be individual .pets, I don't know.

Awesome! Did you just install everything I told you to, or was there more you had to do?

You are going to find that (on Wii games at least) the emulator is slow unless you have a top-of-the-line gaming system. The same can be said no matter if using Windows, Mac, or Linux. Dolphin does not run perfectly yet on average systems. There are a lot of things you can tweak within the emulator to speed it up, but I haven't been able to get it running perfectly yet.

PostPosted: Tue 18 Dec 2012, 20:48    Post subject:  Controller setup?  

Hi!! I installed the Dolphin emulator before I came across this thread. Just wanted to let you know most Gamecube games work at 100% speed on my config. This is Tales of Symphonia. Just one question, anybody got a good controller config for a generic psx type controller? It seems the Gamecube controller has in extra button called the z trigger which doesn't fit my controller. Any suggestions? Thanks!

The Z button is essentially the L1/R1 button equivalent, except there's only one on the Gamecube.
