Kguitar sound problem

Post by MuLinuxGuy »

I like Kguitar as a potential Linux replacement for Guitar Pro, but I can't get Kguitar to produce any sound.

I installed TuxGuitar also and can get sound out of it (although just from my soundcard and not soundfonts), but I like the look and feel of Kguitar better if I can get the sound to work.

Can anybody help?

I take it no one uses Kguitar? lol

Which GuitarPro-Alt app do most here use, TuxGuitar?

Has anyone tried Dguitar? I downloaded the file, but couldn't figure out how to install it.

I think tuxguitar is your best bet.

If you only use it for score typesetting I suggest you Lilypond. It has great tablature functionally.
Non-Session-Manager | FYI: Arch Linux / KXstudio do offer graphically less optimized packages (without NTK toolkit) of the original NSM GUI since June 2020. Original NSM GUI with NTK toolkit here
