TuxGuitar, a GuitarPro Alternative for Linux

GuitarPro, known as a Windows application, which is used to create music for guitar. Yes, I knew, but I never used it, as it is for Windows and not free software, and I didn't run Windows anymore since few months ago. So I try to search on web, and found TuxGuitar, the freeware alternative of GuitarPro for Linux. And again, this software is available for Windows, Macintosh too.

It is a wonderful and fun application programmed in Java to create, edit and play scores, like GuitarPro in Windows. TuxGuitar's features include the publisher of scores, the use of multitrack, autoscroll while playing, apply various effects (curve, slide, vibrations), manager of times, import and export of files gp3, gp4 and gp5, etc..

More info and download links can be reached at its site.

To install TuxGuitar, in its latest version, 1.0, we need some units, are these:

  • sun-java5-jre Sun-java5-jre
  • libswt3.2-gtk-jni Libswt3.2-GTK-jni
  • libswt3.2-gtk-java Libswt3.2-GTK-Java
As I said before, TuxGuitar is programmed in Java, so we have to install java library:

$ sudo aptitude install sun-java5-jre libswt3.2-gtk-jni libswt3.2-gtk-java $ Sudo aptitude install sun-java5-jre libswt3.2-gtk-jni libswt3.2-gtk-java
It takes a minute, once completed, type this in terminal :
$ sudo aptitude install -f $ Sudo aptitude install-f
And we continue to download the debian package for TuxGuitar:

$ wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/tuxguitar/tuxguitar-1.0-rc3-ubuntu-x86.deb $ wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/tuxguitar/tuxguitar-1.0-rc3-ubuntu-x86.deb

Okay, then install it:

$ sudo dpkg -i tuxguitar-*.deb $ Sudo dpkg-i-tuxguitar *. deb

Now we remove the debian package, and we do not serve anything:
$ rm tuxguitar-*.deb $ Tuxguitar-rm *. deb

That's it! Ready to use.
