Frets on fire is essentially an open source version of guitar hero. It runs on windows, mac, and linux. Here is a quick how to for this nice game. Make sure you disable compiz before running; I had performance problems running both at once. My only suggestion for a solution to this is making a new user with no startup scripts and running Frets On Fire from there. Enjoy 🙂

First Try:
In Gutsy: sudo apt-get install fretsonfire
In Feisty try downloading the gutsy package (untested)

or, try:

wget http://superb-west.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/fretsonfire/FretsOnFire-1.2.451-linux.tar.gz
tar xvfz FretsOnFire-1.2.451-linux.tar.gz
wget http://mikesubuntu.googlepages.com/fretsonfire.sh
cp fretsonfire.sh Desktop/
chmod +x Desktop/fretsonfire.sh
Desktop/fretsonfire.sh
