Dolphin only sees USB controller as root


Hello, I have recently built Dolphin for linux and when trying to set up the GCpad controller configuration I do not have the option to use my USB (xbox360) controller as my user. However, if I run Dolphin as root I do have the option to use the xbox controller. Why is this the case? Also to add confusion, if I use the Windows version of Dolphin through wine as my user I have no issue with using USB controllers. Seeing as I can use the xbox controller as root I am guessing this is a permissions issue, but what permissions would I need to change and why?

*Edit: I suppose I should test things more thoroughly before posting, I can use all inputs except the A,B,X, and Y buttons on the xbox controller. This does not make any sense to me.

Are you a member of the plugdev group?

Code:
groups <username>
If you're not then,
Code:
# usermod -a -G plugdev
and try again. Good luck.

I see you're using Slackware, did you compile from the slackbuild? If you did then a post in the slackware forums would probably a lot more helpful.
If you didn't use the slackbuild, then try removing dolphin form your system and reinstalling from the slackbuild.

No, I built from source, under the guise that using git to grab a clone would probably be more up to date. Right now I'm using qjoypad as a work around. But it's quick and dirty. I guess I will try the slackbuild though.
