If you don’t know Yousician, it’s a software developed in Unity Engine with gamified elements to teach you playing instruments. It has smartphone apps for iOS and Android, a windows and a mac desktop client. They used to have a linux client, but deprecated and dropped support for it.
The actual game part of it works really well. In fact, everything except one little, but important aspect is working really well and that is videos. Each lesson has at least one video that explains the purpose of the lessons and gives valuable information on techniques and so on. These videos don’t work at all and somehow break the application in that if you tried to watch a video you can’t quit the game/app afterwards in a normal fashion (it freezes on exit) and are forced to use “Kill all wine processes”. If you didn’t try to watch a video, you can quit without problems.
Depending on the wine version used there are two different behaviors one can experience when trying to watch a video.
1.) You get an endless loading animation that never results in anything.
2.) You get an onscreen message “Unable to play the video. Are you connected to the internet?”, which I am, because every other feature that requires internet works.
Wine (Runs Windows games)
YousicianSetup.exe after installation and initial run I changed this to
/home/robsen/.local/share/wineprefixes/yousician/dosdevices/c:/users/robsen/Application Data/Yousician Launcher/Yousician Launcher.exe
lutris-5.7-x86_64 for scenario 1 and
System (5.9) for scenario 2.
The rest is on default. If that doesn’t suffice as information, let me know and I’ll add the full config.
As a new user I can only post two links, so you gotta copy paste the rest
