Getting Yousician to work properly


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.


Game info
Runner: Wine (Runs Windows games)

Game options
Executable: 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

Runner options
Wine version: 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 :frowning:

lutris -d:
game log:

unity output-log:

Yousician installer:

In retrospect, I’m not even sure if it’s a log from unity or simply a log the yousician devs put it. But you can find it in your wineprefix c:\users\<youruser>\AppData\LocalLow\Yousician\Yousician

Maybe you don’t have “Output debbugging info” enabled. You can find it by right clicking yousician in lutris -> Configure -> Runner options -> “Output debbugging info”. I have it set to “Enabled”.

I get problem #2 when switching the wine version from lutris-5.7-x86_64 to System (5.9)

With #2 I get the following logs:
game log
lutris -d

Not getting any socket errors here. But apart from that the logs look pretty much the same :confused:

It doesn’t seem to work for me if I do it manually. Your updated install script probably needs to be approved by a moderator before I can use it, because it looks the same as yesterday to me.

Once it’s approved I try it.

Hmm. Weird. If I click edit script, I see the new script, but if I click view script it shows the old one.

Here’s the updated script:

You can install in Lutris by running lutris -i <YAML file>

Is there any particular reason why you’re doing

command: git clone $GAMEDIR/tempdir/mf-install-master

and not simply

command: git clone $GAMEDIR/tempdir/mf-install-master


Edit: Also why are all your posts getting flagged? :open_mouth:

No particular reason. Is it better the other way? I was trying to do a zip download + extract initially, but found this easier. Anyway, does Yousican work for you with the installer?

Edit: Also why are all your posts getting flagged? :open_mouth:

No idea. Someone marked my posts as spam… From my messages:

Your post was flagged as spam : the community feels it is an advertisement, something that is overly promotional in nature instead of being useful or relevant to the topic as expected.

Maybe it’s the excessive pastebin links triggering an automatic flags :smiley:

I get permission errors doing it with The other way works without a problem.

Sadly, no. The background-video on the login screen works now, but the other videos for the lessons still show the endless loading animation. I’m currently at work, so I’ll provide a log later.

Okay, I’ll change the script then.

Were you trying it right after the installer launches the game automatically? It might not have the correct Wine settings since it was launched by the installer. You should try the game when launching it from Lutris.

Also, the endless loading animation still happens time to time to me, so you might want to try again.

Sorry for the late reply, but work was very stressful this week. So far I can’t get it to run with your install script. It always downloads that one windows update and then fails at installing yousician. Here the output from the console (which I post here, because suddendly I can’t link pastebin here anymore):

However If I manually install yousician on the same wineprefix after your script fails, video does work most of the time. Sadly when it’s not working the application crashes with the following console output

The install script on the lutris page is still the first version. Either no one is approving it or something else is wrong.

I won’t be having much time in the next weeks and I got yousician setup on my tablet now, which works fairly well. So I won’t be able to further help troubleshoot the problem, but I thank you for your time and for getting it to work, better than before.

Hi, I was able to install yousician by modifying your yaml file to install directly like suggested in the forum. Weirdly enough if I download and then install mf it was not working. But now I get an error when starting yousician PIL_imaging.cp37-win_amd64.pyd cannot be extracted . I dont know if it is an option missing?
