I've just installed ubuntu. i did everything what was written here and as you might guess, osu doesn't work properly. It turns on but instead of menu i've got some random textures. And after few second of this screen, report window pops up and it turns off.

I was able to change rendering to opengl, but it didn't work :D please help me ;]

Can we get a link to winetricks .deb? It's been removed from the Karmic repositories.

Also, a zip of the install would be nice - the .msi doesn't seem to work properly, even with msiexec.

I updated wine today for the first time in a number of months, and decided I would try osu.
Surprisingly, it works almost flawlessly (I didn't measure fps or anything, but it is beyond being merely "playable").
Strangely, though, it tends to crash when I try to reposition the window.

Not sure if this helps, but I also installed the d3dx9, vcrun2005 (sp1) and dotnet20 packages from winetricks beforehand.

wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks
There is no binary, it's just a giant shell script.

Edit: Forgot to mention that the updater works.

For all those who are lazy/don't understand simple tutorial.
Start your terminal and execute this:
wget http://bagnzor.org.pl/prepare-osu

And then execute this:
sh prepare-osu

OR

Download that: http://bagnzor.org.pl/prepare-osu and execute it in terminal.

Edit1: Sound is not sync properly, or is it just me?

On Linux Mint 8 osu! works, but sound is lagging and sometimes osu! crashing. Trying to use OpenGL.

And if you want use you windows osu! songs folder on linux:
sudo mount --bind 'windows songs folder' 'linux songs folder'

rpr13
-> Haruhiist
Do as root:
chown -R [username]:[usergroup] /home/[username]/.wine/

PS. Arch is da best xD
Haruhiist
Will try to.
P.S. Yea. 3 days ago i switched from Ubuntu to Arch. Looks way better. Wine is working faster.
