Ok so whenever I try to print a tab using tuxguitar nothing happens except the program goes non respondent and i have to wait 10 mins trying to close it.

Any know the problem and how to fix it?

This i think:


Latest Version 1.0-rc2
Windows-x86 Excelsior JET Native Release
This is a native package compiled with Excelsior JET. It doesn't need a Java Runtime installed on your system.

TuxGuitar (ubuntu .deb package ) can't print anything because the SWT version available at ubuntu repositorioes.
swt-3.2, just don't implement printers under GNU/Linux

swt-3.3 implemented it, but there is a little bug on newest GTK versions ( it affect ubuntu ) :)
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=206095
I reported the bug, and sended a patch to fix the problem..
but ofcourse the patch was added on 3.4 development version.

So the only solution i can give you, is by downloading a generic GNU/Linux package of tuxguitar ( what have SWT-3.4M5 included )

Or just wait for ubuntu.. but i can confirm you, Hardy still using older swt-3.2 version ( i don't think they change it on next 10 days )
