Since Dolphin 5.0-7062, the default user interface for Dolphin uses qt. [1] The old wxWidgets interface now installs to /usr/bin/dolphin-emu-wx, /usr/bin/dolphin-emu is provided by the qt interface. However, the Arch Linux package disables the qt interface at build time and therefore does not provide /usr/bin/dolphin-emu. Since the dolphin-emu.desktop (provided by Dolphin) uses /usr/bin/dolphin-emu, it's not possible to launch Dolphin from the desktop environment.

Additional info:

* [1]
* Package version: dolphin-emu 1:5.0.r7309.10d230a512-1
* I didn't install dolphin-emu 1:5.0.r7309.10d230a512-2 from community-testing, but the mirror tarball still doesn't provide /usr/bin/dolphin-emu, and also does not update dolphin-emu.desktop.

Steps to reproduce:

* Install dolphin-emu 1:5.0.r7309.10d230a512-1
* Try to launch Dolphin from the desktop icon.
* Alternatively:
* "grep Exec /usr/share/applications/dolphin-emu.desktop" returns "Exec=dolphin-emu".
* "pacman -Ql dolphin-emu" | grep -F /usr/bin/dolphin-emu" returns only dolphin-emu-nongui and dolphin-emu-wx.
