Thread: TuxGuitar crashes

    Default TuxGuitar crashes

    I installed openSuse 13.1 64 bit the other day, then after all updates, installed TuxGuitar in Yast. It crashes when I try to get into Settings or Skins, as well as when I double click on a track name to check the tuning - actually, crashes when I click the button to exit that. I ran it from the command line, but I don't understand a bit of it. Here's what I think is the relevant information:

    Code:
    # A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:
    #
    #  SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0x00007fa5fe5496b8, pid=5325, tid=140351246079744

    /usr/bin/tuxguitar: line 125:  5325 Aborted                 ${JAVA} ${JAVA_FLAGS} ${PACKAGE_MAIN} $arg "$@"
    There are also LOTS of these:

    Code:
    (TuxGuitar:5325): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_closure_add_invalidate_notifier: assertion 'closure->n_inotifiers < CLOSURE_MAX_N_INOTIFIERS' failed
    As far as I can remember, on openSuse 12.3 I had TuxGuitar 1.2, same as now, though I don't remember for sure. I looked at the error log mentioned in the first code tag above, but it is HUGE. I wasn't sure if it was too big to post here....

    I tried the web site for TuxGuitar, but that seems to be a dead link. I tried the bugzilla web page listed above, typed in "TuxGuitar", this is what I got:

    Code:
    Zarro Boogs found.
    Any ideas? If all else fails, it runs in a Windows XP VM (VirtualBox).

    Hello.

    You could look here: http://sourceforge.net/p/tuxguitar/bugs/
    Seems like the sourceforge page is regarded as the homepage for tuxguitar now.

    Thanks - at least I now have a place to start! From what I read there, it may be a bug in eclipse-swt, so for now I'll wait for any updates. I'll post my problem there, who knows.....

    I haven't really used any tablature writers/editors, if that is what you use TuxGuitar for, but searching for alternatives gave, among others, KGuitar and TablEdit; TablEdit should supposedly run fine through WINE. Might be alternative apps to use when waiting for a solution to the java issue.

    Good luck!

    A solution - sort of

    I downloaded swt-4.4-gtk-linux-x86_64.zip from http://www.eclipse.org/swt
    Then I download "GNU/Linux-x86_64 Binary Files" from http://www.tuxguitar.com/ar
    This unpacks into a "local" directory, so I don't mess up my system. Then I unpacked swt, and copied swt.jar to the "lib" directory in the unpacked TuxGuitar directory - NOT in my /usr/lib64. I then run "./TuxGuitar" from the local version, and it doesn't crash when I adjust the mixer, or make changes to a track, such as the instrument or tuning. However, none of the "Settings" have any items. You can't change the "skin", so it's that butt-ugly Gtk look. Can't change the MIDI port to use Timidity. Ah well, at least it doesn't crash. So, I guess the problem is related to eclipse-swt. Hope there's an update in the future so it won't have to look so ugly. I can still use TuxGuitar in the Windows 2000 VM, I suppose.
