Had you googled active-documentviewer, you'd have realized it's a default document viewer in KDE, which you probably don't have installed since it's neither in the official repos, nor (at first glance) in AUR. You can most likely change your default document viewer somewhere in the KDE settings.

When I right click on a game, then select Properties, the Edit configuration, I've got this error:
"wxexecute returned -1 on application run" in a pop-up window.
and at the same time, on my konsole output:
execvp(active-documentviewer, /home/jo/.local/share/dolphin-emu/GameSettings/RMCP01.ini) failed with error 2!
I'm on Kde Desktop.
I can imagine it's linked to a missing viewer, but I'm a bit lost here.

@alucryd ok I found the literal bluetooth pass-through in the dolphin client. I hadn't used that as in earlier builds it wasn't working for me. I will do some testing as my first one had bluez crash as soon as I sync'ed.

@alucryd what do you mean by bluetooth pass-through?

I've got KDE installed with bluetooth integration and bluez obviously, and can't get the wiimotes to detect in Dolphin, but they do work general with bluetooth detection and the desktop. I've tried X11 wiimote driver, and cwiid, but uninstalled them as they didn't improve situation nor should they be valid. I've read the wiki on Archlinux plenty of times too. Rarely they will work on Dolphin and you get the rumbler sensation.

Do I need any special udev entries? It's quiet ridiculous the trouble, and I've read plenty of others with the same issues. If a large portion of people have these troubles and simply move on, then this project is more under utilised.

Bluetooth passthrough works perfectly fine here, why don't you try it or even make productive comments instead of being very rude to people who are working in their free time for your personam enjoyment?

Now the Wiimote is not detecting again. Crazy shit quality.

Spoke too soon. On latest build it seems HID-API is working. Recognised Wiimote straight up. Way to go. My apologises to those working hard.

This is another useless project on Linux as getting the controllers to work is a nightmare unless you're running a barebones cli/x11 system. The emulator does not work with bluetooth integration on windows engines like KDE or Gnome. There is some initial work for HIDAPI support but. Makes you want to pull your hair out and lump using MS Windows, as so much is dysfunctional on Linux.

It doesn't emulate triforce anymore.

e8hffff commented on 2016-10-21 15:35

Annoying that this emulator on Linux doesn't recognise Wiimotes detected/connected via KDE bluetooth integration. Consider Windows uses Wiimotes connected to the system wide bluetooth. Ridiculous that Dolphin-emu attempts its own Bluez detection.
