A little less than a year ago I wrote an article in which I explained how to install guitar pro 7 on linux through PlayOnLinux. If I did it, it was because, although I would like to, the Tux guitarist is far from the paid Pro that there is for Windows and macOS. Starting with the interface and ending with the available sounds. But it can get us out of a jam, and in fact a long time ago I was surprised by how well it got along with my MIDI-compatible keyboard. Today I saw that the update of TuxGuitar 1.5.5, and there is not much to write home about.
We can't say that Tux Guitar is abandoned, or else it wouldn't have been a month since they released the TuxGuitar 1.5.5 beta and we wouldn't have it available anymore. new point update, but we can say that it will never be what many of us would like. And if when they release a new version, what we read is that it is a release to fix bugs and nothing else, well nothing, for those who want something better you can always pull the tutorial that we published in May 2021.
TuxGuitar 1.5.5 fixes crashes that users were experiencing
Reading on the software forum at Sourceforge, there are comments from people saying that the issues you were experiencing have been resolved, so it may not be a big release, which it isn't, but any update is worth it if it fixes something that's making our lives miserable in software we use regularly. For my part, I only open it from time to time to take a quick look at some files, I have not noticed anything, neither for better nor for worse.
What would be nice is for the interface to be modernized a bit, and if someone knows a good file to improve the sound, please share it, many of us would appreciate it. At the moment, TuxGuitar 1.5.5 is what we have (link to flathub), and some users have benefited from the change.
