    Default TuxGuitar -- MIDI system is unavailable

    When trying to play something in Tuxguitar I get this message. Running via the alsa-oss helps a bit It plays songs but with some some pauses, wrong durations etc. so I cannot use this software at all. Has anybody the same problem? By the way I have no problems with anything on my desktop (openSUSE 11.0 32bit, GNOME) but something nasty mentioned above is going on with my laptop (openSUSE 11.0 x86_64, GNOME). Any feedback is welcome =)

    Well TuxGuitar binaries from it's website work just fine... It's all about the package from the packman repo

    I had the exact same problem until I used the "GNU/Linux-x86 Excelsior JET Native Release". The binary inside works properly. The repo version has the MIDI error. The other binary on their website has a dependancy which I can't locate and install and their installer is just bizarre.

    Cool Re: TuxGuitar -- MIDI system is unavailable

    I tried with Yast>Sound card>Other>Start sequencer, but it didn't work for me. I could solve the problem starting TuxGuitar with alsa as wrapper.

    aoss TuxGuitar.sh
