Gamecube/Dolphin not recognizing controller input
I'm using Logitech F710 Gamepads, and running RetroPie on an NUC w/ Ubuntu.
Controllers work fine with all other cores, but Dolphin isn't recognizing them at all. Can't even exit the game via the hotkey. I've seen some threads with similar issues, and the only solution I seemed to find was to change the input type from
Retropad w/ Analog. Tried, but no luck.
Anyone know of this issue and what other solutions I should try?
Ah, I haven't! Was only looking at the GameCube docs and somehow missed the link at the bottom. I'll try that, thanks!

If only I could figure out how to access Dolphin's settings while a game is running, since launching as
dolphin-guijust goes directly into the game like launching as
Hmm, I would have thought there would be some visible difference between the two modes.
Searched online and didn't turn up anything obvious. I've seen screenshots of the menu to set controls but there may be some difference in the way EmulationStation launches the emulator.
I'm hoping someone else with experience using dolphin can jump in here.
Yeah, tried a bunch of things to get to the settings, but all I could do was exit the game, which brought me back to ES.
In an hour or so, I'll try just opening the Dolphin GUI directly instead of going through ES+Runcommand.
Well, I can't even figure out how to open dolphin outside of ES... CLI commands that are normal for Dolphin aren't available when installing Dolphin through RetroPie, it seems.
@LLLLllllLLLlll Dolphin is installed in
/opt/retropie/emulators/dolphin, so you may want to look there for the binaries - they're not in
$PATHso that's why you can't 'find' them.
Fabulous! That's all I needed, got it configured and it's working perfectly.
Y'all might want to add in the Wii docs that that's where the
/opt/retropie/emulators/dolphin/binfor people who can't access the dolphin GUI from the Runcommand. Might be because I'm running RetroPie on Ubuntu or just that a newer version of Dolphin .

@llllllllllllll Hi, I'm having the same exact issue, how do I configure my control in dolphin? I see that you figured it out, can you point me in the right direction. Please give details I'm kind of new to this. Thank you.
You need to launch the
dolphin-emuprogram from the
/opt/retropie/emulators/dolphin/bin/folder first. You can do that from command-line or through a file explorer in the desktop environment. This should bring up the GUI version of dolphin. It wont launch a game, but it will show the window for the program.
Once you get that launched, you can alter the settings of the program and configure your controller. See https://dolphin-emu.org/docs/guides/configuring-controllers/ for a bit more info on the specifics of setting up the controller.
After you finish setting up your controller, you can close the program and go back into Emulation Station to launch the games as normal.

Hey does anyone know a reason why my Controller Input isn't working even though I configured it like it was described?
Launching Games directly from Dolphin works and the Controlls were detected.
Only from Retropi none of the Games work with the XBox One Controller.
