I am looking in Ubuntu for alternatives to Stepmania an Guitar Hero. I used Stepmania with Wine but I heard there was a Linux version for it. Same for Guitar Hero where I can connect the playable guitar and enjoy. Are there an alternative for this 2 and if so which ones.

I can recommend Performous, it is a all-in-one music game.
It can import songs from Frets On Fire (like Guitar Hero/Rock Band)
and songs from UltraStar Deluxe (Like SingStar/karaoke)

You can use real Guitar Hero Guitars from the Wii in the game.
Connect the wiimote using wminput and map the guitar-keys to the keyboard-keys you use in the game.

Have Fun !
