Program shuts down when I am creating new tabs
by Brian Abbott on Monday April 6th 2020, 8:20
I am running Wine 3.0 on Ubuntu 18.04.

I downloaded and installed this program and was initially pleased. I had no problems playing back My Song Book tabs or tabs I downloaded from the internet.

However I am a giving guitar lessons to someone right now and I have noticed that this software will freeze out when I am creating a new tab. It does this quite frequently and right now I am saving work frequently to avoid losing work.

I have my reasons for using Guitar Pro over Musescore or Tuxguitar, one of those reasons being that I am familiar with it, it's more powerful and I will need it for some tasks and also because I think it creates really neat scores compared to Tuxguitar.

I need to get this working or I will buy a Mac. I wish Guitar Pro still supported Linux.

Hi Brian,

I've recently updated to guitar pro 7.5.4 (build 1788) using wine 5.5 in ubuntu 18.04 and it works just fine.
I've tried to create a new tab and add few bars and everything I tried works just fine.

I'd suggest you to try to install a newer version following this instructions:

As I'm writing, I'm using wine 5.5 from the devel branch.

Wine from ubuntu repos may not be up to date.

OK. When I do this will I need to first uninstall Wine programs and then reinstall them?

I did not bother uninstalling application first.
You should be able to directly run the installer or try the built in updater.
