    Looks like you’re doing updates again.

    I’m going to resume my MusicXML testing, so you can included fixes in the next release.

    You can then incorporate this into Guitar Pro 7.

    When Linux x64 version will be launched? So many problems to make it work on new systems with old dependencies, which are not placed in repositories of Ubuntu\Mint

    Please solve the issue with tie notes. Tie symbol appears “inverted” when I re-open the file.

    I am a Linux user and so I unfortunately can’t use the version 7.
    Is Guitar Pro 6 still available somewhere?

    Sorry if we stopped the Linux version. You can buy a Guitar Pro 6 online on Amazon and some others music stores.

    good morning, I cannot run GPU updater for GP6. a window comes up saying GPU updater has stopped working and then the program closes. I am running Windows 7. have not had this trouble before.

    I really need a Linux version. I know you’ll tell me you stopped making it.
    I have a request, just compile GP6 for 64bit linux… I’ll buy that. You guys have the code already.

    Hello Steve, can you please try to reinstall your Guitar Pro 6 with the following process:

    I very much second the 64-bit linux version request from mikej. Some very good sound engineering happens without using mac or windows, and there are a lot of us that like your product. You don’t have to make us write a competing product, we will gladly buy your awesome product right now.

    where I can buy the version7 for Linux?

    Hi Ivan, Guitar Pro 7 is not supported with Linux Operating Systems, at this stage, we do not plan to release a compatible version for Linux. 
    You might be able to install and use Guitar Pro 7 via Wine though, we can not guarantee it will run properly and won’t be able to provide support though. Thanks
