Kali Linux – Steam and Rocksmith 2014

I enjoy playing my bass guitar with Rocksmith. However I do not use Windows at all and wanted it to work with Kali Linux 2021.2, a Debian 10 Distro.

This is how I got it to work with my audio and Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070

Install crossover bin file

wget https://media.codeweavers.com/pub/crossover/cxlinux/demo/install-crossover-21.0.0.bin

chmod 755 install-crossover-21.0.0.bin


Activate critical 32 bit libraries so that 32 bit games run on 64 bit linux

sudo dpkg –add-architecture i386

sudo apt install nvidia-driver-libs:i386

In Crossover install steam

In Steam install rocksmith and Rocksmith 2014

Run cxdiag – works

Run cxdiag64 – works

Manual Fixes for 32 bit libraries so audio can work perfectly and other things like odbc etc

./cxfix missinglibgsm

./cxfix  missinglibasound

./cxfix missinglibpcap

./cxfix missinglibosmesa8

./cxfix missinglibopencl 

./cxfix missinglibodbc

./cxfix missinglibcapi20

./cxfix missinggstreamer1libav

Manual fix

apt-get install gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad:i386

Change audio to alsa

Winetricks – wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Winetricks/winetricks/master/src/winetricks

chmod +x winetricks


set audio to alsa

Run crossover regedit

Export CU/software/wine/drivers

Run bottle command regedit

Import registry file to bottle

Change driver to alsa

Rocksmith Config

Now configure your steam bottle to use alsa audio drivers for Rocksmith to work.

~/cxoffice/bin/wine –bottle “Steam” winecfg

Configure Rocksmith INI


Enjoy playing your guitar on linux with rocksmith!
