    Hi sorry I am not really sure what your asking ...but then i know next to nothing about linux....I reverted to a 32 bit install and all my problems disappeared...I don't really need 64 bit for anything I am aware of so it was the easiest solution.

    trying to use getlibs utility to get some libraries to start Guitar Pro 6, but I get no match output.
    though somebody could help to install missing library manually or something else to get it started.

    Finally got it to work after I got ahold of the GP people.

    The solution is to dumb down the 32 bit libraries for any version of Ubuntu newer than Maverick.

    "It seems a bug in the latest ia32-libs causes some trouble to applications that uses 32bit libraries (GP6 use 32 bit libraries too).

    A workaround exists, simply downgrade the ia32-libs package.

    Follow these guidelines to downgrade ia32:
    - download the package from this page http://packages.ubuntu.com/maverick/...-libs/download
    - run a terminal and go to the directory where the .deb is stored
    - execute this command line: sudo dpkg --force-downgrade -i ia32-libs_20090808ubuntu9.1_amd64.deb "

    After installing getlibs and updating GP 32bit dependencies and downgrading the ia32 libs
    I also had this issue as well as a wrong ELF CLASS for libportaudio2 error when trying to run GP
    I fixed it by using getlibs to fix the libportaudio 32bit depencies
    I did this for libportaudio0 and libportaudio2 but was probably only necessary for 2

    $ getlibs - p libportaudio2
    I don't know if downgrading the ia32 package was necessary as it was the command above that finally fixed.

    So in summary (all as root so su or sudo): download required debs (had to google for getlibs)
    Force install of 32 bit package (some error messages) -
    $ sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture Downloads/gp6-full-linux-demo-r10558.deb
    installed getlibs using package manager (just click deb)
    $ getlibs /opt/GuitarPro6/GuitarPro
    $ sudo dpkg --force-downgrade -i Downloads/ia32-libs_20090808ubuntu9.1_amd64.deb
    $ getlibs - p libportaudio0
    $ getlibs - p libportaudio2

    Hope this helps somebody

    Ladies, forget about getlibs. At least for 12.04 (precise).

    1. install ia32-libs (sudo apt-get install ia32-libs)
    2. edit the deb file for guitar pro 6 to REMOVE the
    gksu dependency. Check out this forum post for a script:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=636724
    3. install guitarpro (sudo dpkg -i <modified debfile>.deb)

    shazam. now you're rocking!
