Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Dolphin is an open-source, multi-platform Nintendo GameCube, Wii and Triforce emulator. Like all the emulated software, the games have minor bugs and issues. Being an open-source project, it may be improved by third party developers.
The latest version available is Dolphin Emulator 4.0, which has been released a while ago. Among others, it comes with beta support for the Wii official online multiplayer, alpha support for ARM and Android and more than 2500 changes and improvements, since Dolphin Emulator 3.50. For a full list of changes and new features, see the release notes.
In this article I will show you how to install Dolphin-Emu 4.0 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Linux Mint 17 Qiana and Linux Mint 16 Petra.
Because it is available via PPA, installing Dolphin-Emu 4.0 on Ubuntu, Linux Mint is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the dolphin-emu package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:glennric/dolphin-emu
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install dolphin-emu
Optional, to remove dolphin-emu, do:
$ sudo apt-get remove dolphin-emu
Or, you can disable the PPA, remove dolphin-emu and downgrade all the packages updated via that PPA, do:
$ sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
$ sudo ppa-purge ppa:glennric/dolphin-emu
