I have upgraded to SUSE 12.1 (I586) and the TuxGuitar does not run because it requires something from the Java SWT library.
I have looked thru the search results for Java on YAST, but it is not clear to me what I need to install. Is this a dependency bug in this distribution of TuxGuitar?

It would help if you post the exact error message with copy an paste.

What does “java -version” report?

In the meantime, make sure you have a valid java soundfont installed and ready: Unavailable soundbank in tuxguitar

Or even check out No sound in Tuxguitar.

Sorry - attached error message:

Are these files really there?
What gives

ls -l /home/jleven/.swt/lib/linux/x86/

Also, search for any packages that may provide those files, from a terminal type:
zypper wp libswt-gtk.so
“wp” stands for “what provides” and will search for any packages that provide that file =)

There is also a similar bug: [Bug 732684] New: Tuxguitar does not start on opensuse 12.1](http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-bugs/2011-11/msg05526.html) (recommends to install eclipse-swt package)
See this thread for an issue from 11.4: http://forums.opensuse.org/english/get-technical-help-here/applications/468184-11-4-tuxguitar-problem.html (recommends to update CLASSPATH)

Thanks - this solved the problem.
