I'd like to install Ultrastar Deluxe in Ubuntu 13.04. However, the PPA only contains packages for Ubuntu 12.10, 12.04, 10.10 and 10.04.

Is there any way I can install Ultrastar Deluxe in Ubuntu 13.04?

You can use the instructions for the PPA for 12.10. – Rinzwind Apr 27 '13 at 12:19
That doesn't work here. I'm getting a 404 error when trying to install from the PPA. And when I'm trying to install the ultrastar-deluxe_1.1.0-4_i386.deb package, I'm getting errors about unmet dependencies. – Exeleration-G Apr 27 '13 at 12:25
Following these instructions didn't work either. – Exeleration-G Apr 27 '13 at 14:44
I am afraid you will have to wait for them to create a 13.04 version. What radu posted usually does work :( – Rinzwind Apr 27 '13 at 17:15
OK, thanks anyway. – Exeleration-G Apr 27 '13 at 17:37

I have successfully installed UltraStart on my notebook MSI U100. Download the packages from

I used first: ultrastar-deluxe-data_1.1.0-svn-20120608-1_all.deb

then: ultrastar-deluxe_1.1.0-svn-20120608-1_i386.deb

And not had problems. I hope it works for you too!

Greetings!    Javier.

I had to install them both, and then it worked. Thanks. – Exeleration-G Oct 18 '13 at 10:04

Yes, you can. After you have installed the ppa sources, go and modify them for which distribution you want (quantal for Ubuntu 12.10 version for example): press Super (windows button), write Software & Updates, open it, go to Other sources, select which ppa want to modify and press Modify.

So I should change raring to quantal, or the other way around? – Exeleration-G Apr 27 '13 at 12:44
Yes, exactly. This is because Ultrastar Deluxe is not yet released for 13.04 (Raring). – Radu Rădeanu Apr 27 '13 at 12:57
This doesn't work on my laptop: apt-get can't find the ultrastar package. – Exeleration-G Apr 27 '13 at 14:40

Currently the easiest way to install Ultrastar Deluxe for all supported Ubuntu versions, including 15.10 is

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tobydox/ultrastardx   
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ultrastar-deluxe

after staring it by running


you can find the songs folder under your home directory
