Have you tried updating your system by doing sudo apt-get update? If you haven't, I'd highly recommend doing that before proceeding to install the .deb file.

From the looks of it, you are missing some files. Hopefully doing sudo apt-get update works for you. If not, I'd highly recommend proceeding to do the following below. This option is a fail proof option of getting Dolphin installed.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dolphin-emu/gcc-for-dolphin
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dolphin-emu/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install dolphin-emu

The following repository sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dolphin-emu/gcc-for-dolphin needs libstdc++6 (>=4.9) in order to be run dolphin-emu on 12.04 and 14.04.

  • I did it by adding the sources then by sudo apt-get install dolphin-emu Aug 27, 2015 at 16:11
  • Glad to see you got it resolved. Aug 27, 2015 at 19:02
