Hi. I am somewhat new to Ubuntu (I'm running 10.04), and so far I prefer it over Windows 7. However, there is one issue that I am having trouble with.
In Windows, I use Guitar Pro 5 all the time. I found TuxGuitar and it looks good enough. Unfortunately, the MIDI sounds that I currently have are atrocious. I downloaded the FluidSynth soundfont, but loading it has been impossible for me so far.
I have tried working with Qsynth and Jack with no luck. Jack always comes up with Xruns and crashes. I have looked through many tutorials and nothing is working.
Basically, all I want to do is use TuxGuitar with decent soundfonts. If anybody could tell me the easiest way to do this I would be very grateful.
