I have installed Stepmania fork sm-ssc on Ubuntu 10.10, but I can not make it load my songs. I've downloaded some packages and put it into ~/.sm-ssc/songs/ but they are not loaded.

Where should I place the songs to get them loaded in the game?


Well I found this on the Ubuntu forums but I haven't tested it so I don't know if it will work right or not.

If you have song packages(smzip), then you have to put them into

if they are extracted files then they go to:

This might be too old to be relevant but I just installed StepMania on ubuntu 14.04 and it took me a while to find where to put my songs - /usr/share/games/sm-ssc has the normal StepMania folder that I'm used to from OSX.

So from there, you drop your pack in like normal: /usr/share/games/sm-ssc/Songs/Packname

I installed with apt-get, if that's relevant.

Hopefully this will help someone in the future.



~/.ultrastar/songs works for me

edit: Oh, sorry. That is for performous, you can try that too.
