    So I just got it working on my switch. Nothing to install really. I just went to the plex website. plex.tv signed into my plex account, then clicked on the "launch" link. I have my plex server running on a headless PC running ubuntu. it's not a very fast PC. I can't remember the exact CPU, but i think it's a dual core Intel ruining at 2.2GH. My friends and fam all have access to it. there are times when i put a new movie on it, or something like GOT is on a given day, and i might have a dozen people streaming from it with no lag. not sure if you know this, but you cant stream to a mobile device without paying for a monthly, or lifetime plex pass. now that I can watch it on the switch I no longer have to bitch about that when i'm out of town.

    About the configuration of the xserver-xorg-input-joystick and 50-joystick.conf file — I did my lil' neat config for the Morrowind (with commented keycodes, too!); left stick configured as WASD and right stick as a mouse movement, maybe anybody find it interesting for himself in other 3d-games, too:
    50-joystick.conf, put it in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/
    BTW, one can see keycodes by xev application in the terminal.

    feeling lazy, and busy spoofing around (cheating) for PG community day... how is this compared to the latest Lakka?

    Off topic, but you stream from your own plex server when out of town? How? Do you have a global IP address? Pay for dynadns or something? Please reply in a DM so the thread doesn't get de-railed.

    Did someone have some luck installing PPSSPP, i've been trying compiling it for like 3 hour now, installing things it seemed missing etc, but the problem is that I have little to no knowledge about ubuntu and linux in general....
    Can someone give me some help?

    the website is not the same as the actual desktop Plex Media Player application, though.

    I wish there was a keybaord that could be controller using joycon, so not touch input required.
    Like on consoles, ya know?
    Nintendo swicth OFW, xbox, ps, etc.
    That would really just finish the whole thing!

    You're just using the web browser viewer which is inferior to installing the standalone plex player.

    Are there any other performance tricks I can apply to the Switch (i've done the 2.0GHz overclock (though I don't think that's permanent and may need to be done everytime I boot), the SWAP file for 2gigs, and nothing else performance wise)? Often, Ubuntu will either stop opening applications, lock a core to 100% or just not respond to clicks (not frozen as my BT mouse can still click, move, explore, etc.).

    So I have been using Plex for several years now. I have 5 plex servers in my basement that I slapped together over those last couple of years. 3 running linux, 2 running windows. in my house i have plex clients on a roku, firestick, airtv, and two PC's. I have built clients for my friends and fam to have access to my servers. most of those are using the plex.tv website. can you explain to my in what way they are "inferior" to a desktop Plex app? TBH., the way it looks to me is a made a suggestion to help people out so that they could use a Plex client on their switch, and you are trying to nit pick and discourage anyone from trying what I said. The way I suggested you can play direct to a switch without transcoding on the fly, same quality video and stereo audio, full screen, and the list goes on. So again. what can a desktop plex app do that the web app can't do, and remember even some of the people that are actively in the development of plex watch their movies that way.

    "Web Player can only directly play content supported by the browser.
    The Plex Media Player is a native app, supporting all the containers/codecs supported by the Operating System, including surround sound. Also, Plex Media Player offers a full-screen “TV Mode” optimized for use with a remote control when directly connected to a TV via HDMI." [1]

    use a different desktop environment, such as XFCE.

    Hey, when I try to install retroarch (following the guide including adding the repositories listed) it will not download the cores. I want to use dolphin (latest version, need accurate NES emulation in animal crossing, I love ) vulkan without installing Lakka. IMO, Lakka is counter intuitive for people who are not novices however, I can't get retroarch working because the cores won't download, I tried manually downloading but the cores wouldn't work. Has anyone gotten around this? Please lmk <3

    edit: yes github dolphin-emu works however only in openGL but, natinsula got dolphin vulkan working in Lakka so. I assume the retroarch build is not the same as the github build of dolphin

    If I remember correctly, Vulkan is buggy in Dolphin. You have to go fullscreen in order to use it. If you don't wanna do that, use Ishiiruka as Vulkin works better with that than mainline Dolphin.

    Also, can anyone suggest a Bluetooth configuration application for XFCE4? Google is giving me a plethora, but I'm not sure where to begin.

    i use ishiiruka i would have said that in original post but i forgot the guys name lol.
    Yeah, dolphin now is optimized internally for animal crossing (as well as other games) in newer releases so it fixes nes emulation. I will try dolphin vulkan again but instead choose start in fullscreen option thank you!

    This is false. Mainline Dolphin is much, much, much faster than Ishiiruka on arm64. I tried both.

    Isn't Ishiiruka old as dirt compared to mainline dolphin?
