I have Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64-bit on both my laptop and my desktop.

I managed to install Guitar Pro 6 on my desktop by using 32-bit dependencies, following the instructions here to install:

I followed the exact same methods on my laptop, but Guitar Pro 6 won't run. I have tried the official demo from the website, which didn't work either.

When downgrading my libraries to 32-bit for Guitar Pro 6 install, at some point in the terminal it had an issue with LibGL, saying it was installed by the video driver.

I suspect this may be the cause of the problem, since after Googling for hours, the only issues were with libportaudio, which I downgraded successfully.

So, is there a way to downgrade LibGL to 32-bit, since it is installed with the video driver? Would this stop my display working, or is it impossible?

I also tried installing the Windows version under Wine and PlayOnLinux, neither of which worked. Guitar Pro 6 installs successfully, but then nothing happens when I try to run it.

If I am wrong about LibGL, does anyone know a way I could get Guitar Pro 6 working? I desperately need it to work, and don't want to downgrade to 32-bit.

UPDATE: I ran /opt/GuitarPro6 !$ ldd ./GuitarPro and it reported that libGL.so.1 was 'not found' I found the file(s) in the nvidia-current directory, and placed them in /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/mesa/ The issue now is, how can I tell Guitar Pro 6 where to find them?

Did you install Guitar Hero using wine?As you mentioned you downloaded the 32 bit libraries but you said that you are using ubuntu 12.04 64 bit –  Nickolas Jun 7 '12 at 18:43
    
*Guitar Pro I converted a .tgz to a .deb and installed that, as in the instructions from the link in my post I did try with Wine, but that didn't work either –  robawalsh Jun 7 '12 at 18:53

Just create a symlink to the file whose name starts with libgl, inside the directory where Guitar Pro was installed.

I've reworded this a bit for clarity, but I recommend expanding this to explain exactly how to find that file, and exactly how to make the symbolic link. –  Eliah Kagan Sep 16 '12 at 17:39

I would suggest you to install tuxguitar instead It can read Guitar Pro tabs.

sudo apt-get install tuxguitar
