I just installed using the binary packages from 
http://code.google.com/p/mupen64plus/. There is a plugins folder after 
you unzip the binary package. If you look in the plugins folder you will 
blight_input.so. It was installed by default for me. I didn't have to 
actually install it manually. The problem is that it doesn't show up as 
an option in the setup menu because the SDL_ttf font is missing. If this 
is your problem, then when you run from the command line you will see an 
error about the font when you try the setup. Just install the SDL_ttf as 
described in the previously mentioned thread and then blight will show 
up in the setup dialog.
