Installing Fmod Studio on Pop!_OS
So, as a game developer, I love FMOD. Advanced sound is always so cool to me! However, when installing FMOD Studio on Pop!_OS, you’ll run into an issue.
$ dpkg -i fmodstudio<version>.deb Package pulseaudio is not installed
So, even though it requires a bit of editing files that you probably shouldn’t, it’s actually quite easy!
dpkg -i --force-all fmodstudio<version>.deb. This installs FMOD
Studio, and FMOD Studio will run just fine! There’s an issue, though.
When you next try to install something with
apt you’ll discover that it
won’t allow you to install anything, because a dependency is unresolved.
To solve this, you need to edit
/var/lib/dpkg/status as sudo. Find the
fmodstudio, and remove
And boom! FMOD Studio running on Pop!_OS without any issues anywhere!
Or you could install the AppImage, but that’s not as fun…
