you messed up a lot of the links when you edited the post to newest revision



they turned out like this . . " https://github.com/Francesco149/loli-ov ... sound.conf "

" https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ad " --> ur alsa arch wiki link lol

newcomers might be confused
uhh I think that's the new forums' fault, I'm pretty sure I pasted the links correctly lol will try to fix

EDIT: fixed them, thanks for the info

wine staging is updated for wine 3.5 / 3.6 now

staging might improve quality of gameplay as it offers improvements for "realtime" and "I/O heavy" games/apps
good to know! but staging never affected performance on osu for me and I think arch is the only one that has up to date wine staging so i decided to leave it out

EDIT: guess I'll add that staging is fine too if desired

hello there. i have got arch linux. i was about to throw this away because no internet connection on wine. but now i figured how to fix that. write "sudo pacman -S lib32-gnutls" and i guess your issue will be fixed.
ah, I thought arch had fixed this by now, guess I'll readd this to the guide, thanks for testing

https://osu.ppy.sh/ss/10759611 do you think i can do anything with this?

specs: HP ProBook 450 G1 (arch linux + KDE)
processor : i5-4200M @ 2.50 ghz
graphics: intergrated
ram: 3.7gb
thats all sadly.

i have got better performance on win.
if you already tried everything on https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/intel_graphics I recommend trying a barebones window manager like jwm ( https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/JWM ) or a lightweight DE with no fancy effects like lxde

KDE plasma is gpu accelerated and might be eating fps

if that still doesn't help, most likely the intel drivers aren't quite as good for your gpu :[ you can also try installing a cutting edge kernel and mesa for newer drivers but from what i can see the stock arch packages for those are already quite cutting-edge

after a bunch of testing wine 1.8.3 still seems to offer far superior audio latency with winetricks sound=alsa flag


idk how to change winealsa.drv on newer versions of wine, i'm guessing that's the problem ? ?
well, we had a bug report on wine's tracker about it and never managed to figure it out even though I remember bisecting commits and finding exactly which commits broke it

idk, maybe it's cause I'm on pure alsa now but 3.5 latency feels the same as what I had back when I was on 1.8.3 and pulseaudio

Just came back from eternal slumber. Wine 3.0.1 seems to have neat and good compatibility though.

Ubuntu 18.04 with Artful build of Wine. Running it with generic kernel gives me usual latency and lag, while with low-latency kernel gives me better gameplay but... crappy sound (especially when it comes to hit sounds).

Hi,
I have question about the dsound regedit setup, I'm lost on how it suppose to be set up exactly in wine regedit. I've done everything else and it all works except for the audio latency issue. I'm using Manjaro kernal 4.14.

Any help will be appreciated.

regedit: No such file or directory

regedit: Unable to open the file 'dsound.reg'.


I guess you can manually use regedit to add i

I'm using i3wm and I cant open .osk files. I tried xdg-mime but I don't know how to get it to work. thank you for help.

edit: i know that i can drag it to the window with osu or install firefox to open it but that just takes time. i liked how it worked on my xfce or kde.

Suggestions:
1. Install `cabextract`: `sudo apt install cabextract`
2. Install Wine (I mean, you told me to add the repository WITHOUT installing wine?!) `sudo apt install winehq-stable`
3. On Bionic (18.04), you probably don't need the repository (no bionic in repo): `sudo apt install --install-recommends wine-development`

nvm, i figured it out.

btw i use arch. in aur repository is a package named mimeo so install that. you also should install xdg-utils and perl-file-mimeinfo from official repositories.

then download some skin and beatmap (their file extensions must be: .osk and .osz) and in terminal write:

# replace the directory with your directory with these files.
cd directory
# now we'll use the tool we installed. change file.osk with the name of the actual file.
mimeopen -d file.osk
# now it will say if you want to open it with smth so select other if it's there. then write just osu and it will open osu with that file and also it will set as default. if #you don't have an option other in mimeopen then select osu!.
#
#now we'll do this same with .osz extension
mimeopen -d file.osz
# now it will say if you want to open it with smh so select other if it's there. then write just osu and it will open osu with that file and also it will set as default. if #you don't have option other in mimeopen then select osu!.

sorry if it's not clear. i hope that francesco will rewrite this to actual guide. be free to ask me for smth

It should noted that the hovering issue on Wacom tablets has been fixed upstream since input-wacom version 0.41.0 and kernel 4.18.

When trying to create a new wine prefix and install .NET 4.6.2, gdiplus and japanese font aliases, I keep getting this specific error "sha256sum mismatch! Rename /home/anthony/.cache/winetricks/dotnet462/dotNetFx462_Full_x86_x64_Slim.exe and try again."

Now, I have tried countless things, reinstalling, deleting Wine and Winetricks from "/home/usr/.cache" But nothing seems to work.

The reason I have switched to Linux is because of the countless issues I get with Windows 10, bsod's, Bad performance and constant bugs, overall the main reason I got bored of Windows was because it lost it's charm and ultimately got boring to use.

I knew switching to Linux would have some worth getting used to. But running osu is my main priority for now.

Hopefully this issue can be resolved quickly.

Thanks for your time!

The download for dotnet462 changed, for now you can just change the dotnet version, dotnet461 should be good.

CrypticInsanity
Hi, I've looked through a fair amount of this thread over and I can't find anything addressing this so can anyone help?

The issue is, whenever I get a notification, whether it be from steam or a native desktop notification (KDE Plasma) I get a large amount of stutter and/also tracking issues with my mouse.

I've disabled my compositor when osu launches and I use the proprietary NVIDIA drivers with a 1070.

Any help would be be appreciated, thanks in advance!

Hi! I have similar issue as CrypticInsanity. I am using 2 displays and when I play Osu! and have facebook opened on the second display, Osu! suddenly starts to shutter when I receive a message. I have external notifications disabled, but it "blinks" on facebook site. The problem disappears, when the message is read. I'm using Nvidia RTX2070 with proprietary drivers and have VBlank disabled. I have tried to change sync from Auto to display, which is used for Osu! but it didn't help.

According to the last error, the component called "ntlm_auth" (in its 3.0.25 version or above) must be installed on your computer (anywhere in the PATH environment variable, but don't worry about that).
Then it is said that this component is distributed through the "winbind" package. All you have to do is: "sudo apt-get install winbind" (since you are on an Ubuntu OS, apt/apt-get is your default package manager) (after updating the package list, "sudo apt-get update"). Then retry. I don't know if it will clear everything though.

(Sorry for the delayed reply, hope it helps and don't hesitate to reach out again if you still have issues)
