I saw this tutorial a few days ago that explained how to install osu! in the Ubuntu distro. But, that's not updated, obviously, and things have already changed. So, I managed to take some of my time to make a forum thread for all of you osu! players who use Ubuntu. This one's for you. <3

The installation isn't quite complicated, but do take this in mind: if you don't know how to mess with the Terminal and / or wine, then it's on your risk. I'm not going to be responsible for any damage caused on your machine / device.

Open the Terminal (Press Ctrl+Alt+T), then do this:

1. Add Wine PPA
~$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa

2. Update Apt
~$ sudo apt-get update

3. Install Wine (Stable version)
~$ sudo apt-get install wine-stable
(( Est. file size = 500MB ))

4. Set-up a 32-bit Wine Architecture Prefix
~$ WINEARCH=win32 winecfg
(( When the config window appears, select the OS as Windows 7, 8, 8.1 or 10 ))

5. Install .NET Framework 4.5
~$ winetricks dotnet45
(( If you don't have winetricks installed, do sudo apt-get install winetricks ))

6. Download the osu! installation file
~$ wget https://m1.ppy.sh/r/osu!install.exe

7. Create an osu! folder in the Wine prefix's Program Files, move osu!install.exe there, and start osu!install.exe
~$ mkdir '.wine/dosdevices/c:/Program Files/osu!' && mv osume.exe '.wine/dosdevices/c:/Program Files/osu!' && cd '.wine/dosdevices/c:/Program Files/osu!' && wine osume.exe
(( If you want, you can manually create folders and move osu!install.exe via GUI ))

8. Wait for osu! to update everything

9. Start osu!

10. Change your osu! in-game settings (if want to do that)

11. Exit osu!

And that's it!
I hope that you enjoyed this tutorial, and I hope aswell that it helped you!
If you have any problem with the installation, let me know by posting a comment :!:

Well, the thread isn't updated, because there are some dependencies that changed. Also, if you follow this thread, you'll get to use osu!.exe instead of osume.exe, which no longer exists in the server files. Plus, you'll install .NET 4.5, which is needed to run osu!.exe ..

There is an up-to-date guide, which (for whatever reason) still isn't stickied

You really don't need .NET 4.5 as it doesn't provide any benifit over .NET 4.0 (which has been confirmed a few times in the above linked thread)

Hi, well, I have a problem while the osu! is updating, in the middle of the update, it opens the wine debugger and it says that osu! doesn't respond and it needs to close, what can I do?

You could uninstall osu and reinstall it, after saving setting and maps.

try either downloading it manually or, if you really insist on downloading it through wget:

wget https://m1.ppy.sh/r/osu\!install.exe
