I'm trying to run PCSX2 8.1 in suse linux 9.3 x86-64(on an Athlon 64), but for some reason when I try to run the emulator it can't find the pad or usbnull plugins(it finds some of the other plugins though). I'm using the pre compiled linux version from the website(which is assumably compiled for 32-bit linux) so, I was wondering if I needed to compile the emulator or the plugins that don't show up from the source. I unzipped the emulator into a directory inside my home directory so I was also wondering if the emulator has to be in a specific directory or if it can be anywhere like in the windows(I ask this because I noticed that PCSX2 makes a save states and memory card folder in my home directory automatically).I am a newb to linux so I could be doing something simple wrong.

Also, I was wondering about OpenGL. Since all of the OpenGL plugins for PCSX2 have been abandoned(as far as I know), will linux users be stuck with software rendering or are there any plans for an OpenGL plugin again in the future?

Use PadWin 0.9 pluging, is the only one for linux (I supose). And about USB pluging you don't need it now, so don't bother about it.

The PCSX2 linux version is 32bits, as the windows one. In 0.8 is not a 64bits version, but it will be in 0.9. You don't need to recompile the plugins for 64bits. They would work in 32 and 64 bits.

Don't know a lot about linux, but sure it works like windows. I mean that doesn't matter in what path you have the emu. If it works ok, let it as you have.

About the OpenGL, ummm.....It would be a good idea to continue with that plugin, but now it is abandoned (Don't know if there is any other project).
I would like it to continue, it was a very good plugin, with a good speed.

That is the plugin that won't show up, if I knew how to screen capture in linux I would post the exact error, but it basically acts like it can't find the plugin. I tried downloading the padwin plugin separately(and the USBnull) but neither one of them has the pre-compiled plugin for linux(just windows). I'm not too worried about the USB plugin, I just figured I would mention it in case the problem was related to it, I really just want the padwin plugin to work.
