I honestly gave up after a while of trying to run osu! on any version of Ubuntu I have on any device, it was always slow and jittery. Plus it took way too much work to get it to even function at subpar 50 fps. That's when I gave up and went back to playing on Windows 10 with everything smooth. I do recommend though if you are going to be running osu! on Linux that you try using OpenGL and changing the capped framerates off of VSync (if it even is in the first place) as I find that VSync is broken in a lot of games on Linux.
I had the same problems as you, and the problem was wine 1.7, it's not the last version, try installing wine staging, run winecfg and in the tab "staging" check "Enable_CSMT for better graphic performance" it will allow wine to multithread. it actually gave me a 300 fps boost, hope you will have the same :b

Can you confirm this happening still? osu! nowadays should only use OpenGL (not sure if there's a fallback to D3D) and CSMT (as-documented) only affects Direct3D.

Not really related to osu!, but I just realized that the version of Wine in the Ubuntu repositories is really old (1.6.2) and I want to install latest version of Wine Staging using the official Wine PPA for Ubuntu. Will the prefixes disappear, if I uninstall Wine?
Also, osu! is apparently installed in a folder in my downloads folder. Will that go away too?

Nope, the prefix will be preserved if you remove and/or update Wine. If you change Wine versions, then upon osu!'s next start, you'll get a quick message about the prefix updating and then it should start.

Sorry, i didn't see your post because i don't check osu often. and yes, CSMT still works with osu!.

Oh, I see. Thanks for the reply ^^

Nice tutorial tho. My friend was searching this to run the game on his Ubuntu.
shiinware
I was able to install the game through PlayOnLinux :)
The fps seems to be fine also.

I guess we need a few more infos like specific OS and the way you installed it (straight up through wine or PoL)
I for myself had issues getting osu to run in Arch on my laptop because osu's not getting a connection for me aswell. Should've looked at the problem earlier but I didn't bother so far since it wasn't important for me to have it on there anyway
ljonka
So, after toying around with the instructions you posted here and not being able to connect to the internet as well I tried a script someone put up on GitHub
(https://www.reddit.com/r/osugame/commen ... and_other/ -> the Reddit thread)
and now everything works fine, except for the fact that I can't alt-tab out of osu! and if I try the window freezes and I have to kill the process in another console.

Despite the alt-tab-freeze I tried to play and I experienced some lag. It wasn't that much but definitely noticeable (I play around 2.5-3.5 star maps). I set FPS to unlimited, running on Full-screen (1920x1080) but it's persistent whatever I do.

Edit: After enabling multi-threading and setting the osu! window to borderless windowed most of the lag is gone and it runs really smooth
Chaosemerald
is it just me or has anyone else also experienced that the circles and sliders appear way too early, which makes it pretty hard to play?
I have to set my universal offset to 64ms and local offset to 95ms in order to make the objects and hitsounds appear correctly in time with the music :<

Offset seems fine for me.

Did that happen somewhere else as well?
If yes and you are using Pulseaudio, this might be the problem.
You could try to deactivate it and just use the Alsa Mixer.

I don't have that problem anywhere else, not even in the other Wine games.
But I'll try to deactivate PulseAudio anyway and see if it does anything c:
Chaosemerald
I don't know how to disable PulseAudio in Ubuntu, but then I found about pasuspender, which apparently is a pretty neat utility for disabling PulseAudio temporarily

But if I'm going to use pasuspender in terminal, am I going to type this:
pasuspender -- WINEPREFIX=~/.wineosu wine ~/osu/"osu!".exe
or this:
WINEPREFIX=~/.wineosu pasuspender -- wine ~/osu/"osu!".exe


Edit: Nevermind, I'm going to get rid of Ubuntu soon and install Debian anyway, so I don't want to spend time on that

Thank you for the guide
I would be really glad tho to see a native linux build in the future

There is actually coming a native Linux port! I think it'll be released, when osu!next gets released

Does anyone have any tips on running osu! on GNOME/Kali Linux?

Hey, have mint kde x64, but osu client from playonlinux app run only in x32. How can I fix this and run x64 version? Teach me, senpai.

Basically, there's a in-depth, up-to-date guide over here
There are sections on creating 32-Bit Wine prefixes for various conditions such as either using pre-existing or self-compiled wine versions
If you want to get it working as easily as possible I guess taking the PlayOnLinux route is your best bet but you're given various options (papa bless Franc[e]sco for all of his efforts of making and updating his guide)
Stray Lamb2
I've been playing on Linux Xubuntu 16.04 in PlayOnLinux for a month or two now, stable fps, no tearing, same latency as windows, minor visual issues with settings side panel and non-latin letters. If you check my latest scores, given my skill level, it is the same as my pre-linux scores. So, with that as a metric, you could say it is the same exact experience.

How I got it running is simple:
- Make a new PoL drive (x32), with wine 2.0-rc3-staging (x32).

- Configure->Miscellaneous->Open a shell

- Enter the following (one at a time) :

Install newest winetricks:
  wget  https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Winetricks/winetricks/master/src/winetricks
chmod +x winetricks

Install vcrun2015
sh winetricks vcrun2015

- Go to the "Install components" tab, install dotnet40

- Miscellaneous tab once again, "Run a .exe file in this virtual drive"

- Run your osu! installer

- Play the game

Hope it works for you too, didn't post up until now to test functionality.

Fixed it by installing lib32-gnutls and lib32-gnutls26 (not sure which one because I installed both at once, lol). Also installed libgnutls. The game is running! Wonderful.

Hi, Does this work on Lubuntu 15.04 Vivid on a i386 (32-bit) architecture? Thanks!

EDIT: Looking through the guide I came across this...

6. Download osume.exe
Terminal > wget http://osu.ppy.sh/release/osume.exe
This link leads to an HTTP 404 Not Found Error. Can someone post an updated link?

I would instead follow the guide on t/367783
It's up-to-date and gives you varying ways to install osu


To this date I wonder why the other thread isn't stickied yet >:(

Could you make a version for Lubuntu?? Thanks :)

On osu! Updater it says ‘An error occurred! Please check your internet connection.’ How do I fix this problem?
Kazutoy
works fine on debian

you internet or wifi is slow :shock: ? :D;)

"An error occurred! Please check your internet connection" while installing osu

@kiran install lib32nss-mdns. Wine has some issues with net connection while it isn't installed.
So, open a terminal and (assuming you've got a debian/ubuntu/mint distro) type
sudo apt install lib32nss-mdns

Can someone check my guide out? Most of the people I've shown it to says that it works for them all the time. I also did Japanese fonts, gdiplus and etc so there's no graphical glitches.

I need help, I'm from ubuntu / linux and I tried to download osu and I got an error that .NET fireworks won't update after that, I updated it to the latest version available for ubuntu, which is 6.0.0.1 and the same warning keeps popping up if you know any solution in this regard please tell me
marshallracer
You chose to dig out the oldest linux guide that's on here xd
Please refer to the thread pinned in this subforum
The mention of .NET refers to the windows one you need to install within wine, not the .NET version in Linux
Also the latest Version osu needs is 4.5 but all of the important things are mentioned in that other thread

and please don't necro such an old, deprecated thread when there are several active linux threads already
