    Does anyone know if you can use the tux guitar program in place of guitar pro with the lessons provided?

    i downloaded tuxguitar but it wouldn’t open the gpx file.
    it says it will.
    i downloaded from the source forge page and not the tux website.
    their website isn’t ooening so I don’t know if they’re updating or what.

    rock and roll ain't pretty; that's why they picked us to play it.

    i took a closer look into tuxguitar and the last version of guitar pro it supports is gp5.

    it does not work with guitar pro 6 (gpx).

    Yeah, it hasn’t been under development for a while. I can export it as a GP5 file or midi if you need. Or if you know someone with GP6, they could do it for you as well.

    Thanks !, I was thinking I would save a buck buck but the time I spent trying to get tux to work could have been used to practice, I gave up and ordered gp6 I want to learn guitar not learn a bunch of computer programs !

    I don’t regret the purchase at all. I use it for everything from guitar to saxophone scores.

    Back in 2000 or so, I went straight from MS Dos 5.0 to SuSE linux. MS Dos always worked flawlessly but MS Windows always crashed miraculously whenever I came near. Linux seemed to be able to do what I needed so I happily went with that. It is just that sometimes you need some particular hardware to work or you really need to open that file in a proprietary file format that you’ll face some challenges or just hit a wall. Ten years later when I needed to upgrade my hardware, I therefore went with a dual boot system. For most stuff I run linux but for some hardware or software to work I log into the MS Windows environment. I don’t want to waste my time with computers when I’m supposed to be doing something else. So in this case of the Tux Guitar project, I suppose it’s not being actively developed anymore and it is just not as good as the real GuitarPro. If you happen to be running Tux Guitar because you’re on a linux machine, it may be nice to know that they actually support the installation on a computer running Ubuntu linux. I’ve not had any trouble installing it under Linux Mint and it might work just as fine with other Debian based distributions. I’m running OpenSuSE so I’ll just resort to MS Windows for GuitarPro. I don’t think GuitarPro is particulary expensive for what you’re getting but the number of installations you’re getting is limited. So it might be a bit of a waste to install it on a system which you’re not fairly certain about that it will actually work. But if you’re running MS Windows, OSX or Ubuntu linux, just get GP6 and you’ll be fine :).

    It depends on the lesson package, some of them have gp5 files which is okay with tux, some have gpx files only. I thought I remember seeing a package that has both (was it MPC?). If you mean, can you use tux with the GPX lesson files, there is some software to open gpx files on tux but I haven’t tried it. You can find that gpx tux plugin on the web.

    I bought the guitar mastery program with DVDs couldn’t get tux to even recognize the files. Maybe the plugin would work it’s worth a try thanks!
