Hi,

>Error: Dependency is not satisfiable:
the .deb package depends on other .deb packages...
so if you don't have installed java from a .deb file.. i'll not works.

>just tried the binary, it didn't work either.
please, try exec the app on a terminal and paste here the error log.

here's the error message:
The installer could not find a valid Java(tm) Runtime Environment in this machine.

Supported versions:
Vendor: Sun min. 1.5 max. any


it appears that since i didn't install java with add/remove, i installed it wrong/in the wrong place. i'm gonna try to get it online so i can take care of that.

Your Java-6 is not at linux PATH...
try this: (on a terminal)
java -version

1.4.2
definitely not what i installed. i assume this is what ubuntu 6.10 comes with. i installed 1.6 under my home directory, by the way, not under a root folder. su won't let me type my root password (nothing shows up when i type it in! and after entering it, it say authentication failure), so i cant put it in a root directory.

Hi, Ubuntu, install GCJ (an open source java 1.4) as default..

so, you can install all Java virtual machines as you want.. but only one can be at linux PATH..

so, one solution is made java from sun as default..

another is tell tuxguitar where is java..
but we have a little problem here:
you downloaded the installer file, and the installer is another app(http://www.bitrock.com/products_installbuilder_overview.html)
so i'm not sure if it have support for what i'll to say..
you can test if it works, else download the .tar.gz release of tuxgutiar....

JAVA_HOME, is a standart env var, what allmost java apps support.. i think bitrock installer should support it.
So..... open a terminal and do this:

export JAVA_HOME=/home/your_account/where_is_java_installed
./installer-file


if it works, tuxguitar will be installed.. but you should do the same to run the app.

export JAVA_HOME=/home/your_account/where_is_java_installed
/where_you_installed_tuxguitar/tuxguitar

tuxguitar also support the JAVA var... for the binary "java":
export JAVA=/home/your_account/where_is_java_installed/bin/java
/where_you_installed_tuxguitar/tuxguitar

Important: exec the installer and tuxguitar in same terminal you made the "export"

my english is not good.. so tell me if you can't understand something

Bye
