What works

Tested on a low spec PC (1GHz dual core and 2 GB RAM).

Everything works smoothly on 64 bit, wine-rt, on lubuntu with lowlatency and liquorix kernels. It works even better than on a windows 7 32 bit install on the same computer.

On the generic kernel FL is slower than on windows 7 32 bit, having xruns when playing many voices.

IL remote works with very low latency.

What does not

All related to advanced graphics.

Wavecandy is distorted but works, and is sometime unresponsive to move/resize.

The logo at the beginning has a black margin, but disappears normally.


What was not tested

VST plugins and MIDI.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source

HowTo / Notes

Set a virtual desktop for FL Studio to better support window managers, and workspaces.

The FL Studio UI can sometimes go haywire if you workspaces in your desktop environment - the audio engine works and events are handled (for example, space still plays/pauses the project) but the UI is frozen.
