Linux is not a support OS. You’ll need either Windows (natively) or MAC OS to use Virtual DJ properly.

Even IF VirtualDj could run under Linux, you wouldn't find drivers for any controller in order to use it more efficiently.

I would disagree that Virtual DJ needs native Windows or Mac OS to work. I have it running without issues on Ubuntu 18.04. The only thing that becomes an issue is controller support.

If you want to give it a go all you need is to install wine & winetricks. Once Wine has been installed open up command line and type in winetricks, once opened 'Select the default Wine Prefix' --> Change settings --> scroll to sound=alsa, check the box then OK. Close out winetricks.

Download VDJ 2018 Windows version, open terminal cd to Download and type in 'wine vdj2018....exe' this will install as it would on windows.

Enjoy... bypassing the pulseaudio and using just ALSA works a dream.

I would suggest changing the default skin though V8 for Fruit is great.
