Tuxguitar is a java app. Until someone packages it, you can easily do what I did recently:

- download http://downloads.sourceforge.net/tuxguitar/tuxguitar-1.1-linux-x86.tar.gz

- uncompress it into /opt

- copy a nice icon from one of those inside /opt/tuxguitar/skins/ to /usr/share/pixmaps/tuxguitar.png

- create a /usr/share/aplications/tuxguitar.desktop with the following contents:

Code: [Select]
[Desktop Entry]
Name=TuxGuitar
Comment=Multitrack tablature editor and player
Exec=/opt/tuxguitar/tuxguitar
Icon=tuxguitar.png
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Encoding=UTF-8
Categories=Application;AudioVideo;
StartupNotify=true

You can then run it from the menu (inside Multimedia).

Thomas, you probably don't need this now but I have packaged TuxGuitar for VL 6.0. you can get it here: (if you still need it or want to test it) http://sites.google.com/site/tuxtoys/Home
The following sentence is true. The previous sentence is false.
