    I completed these steps and it works amazingly, thank you! But where do I put the song files? I’ve installed SM on Windows PCs half a dozen times and it was so simple to add songs to c:/Program Files/Stepmania/Songs, but I’m not very Linux savvy and have no idea where I need to be lol

    Great tutorial! I encountered one big problem after installing, however: no sound. So close, yet so far… any idea what the problem is?

    I did this after trying to compile from source, resolving all the dependencies manually until the compiler didn’t like something in the source code, so I’m having a hard time trying to think of possible problems.

    It worked really nicely. Thank you! By the way, to get the usb dancepads working on ubuntu, you must plug in the pads and run ‘modprobe joydev’
