What works

Guitar Pro 6 installs without issue, and so do all of the soundbanks that I've tried. I am able to use the program exactly as I would in windows and arguably it runs smoother than it does in windows, which I admit may be a placebo effect. There are no issues of 'stammering' or lag which I would sometimes experience in windows, and this is leads me to believe that the program runs more smoothly than in windows.

What does not

Everything works, and the only issue I could find is that when importing soundbanks can cause crashing if you drag it from a linux folder into Guitar Pro. To get around this, simply File > Open > directory of the soundbanks for things to work 100% flawlessly.


What was not tested

Some soundbanks that did not pertain to my needs, but I've used over half of them with no issues.
