Greetings. I’m a Calculate noob. I’ve been distro hopping as of late looking for a new one to install on a new box. So, I’m running the 64 bit version of Calculate 11.9 live. I am pretty happy with it. Both sound and video work without issue using Skype. Chromium is working well. Lancelot menu is there and I’m happy.
I have learned that I can use emerge to install and search for software. But, one of my requirements in looking for a new distribution is TuxGuitar. I could not find it in the repositories. I tried using the binaries for the 64 bit version from their website, but it requires Java which I could not find using emerge, either. http://tuxguitar.herac.com.ar/download.html
I was able to get the x86 Excelsior JET Native version to run. Basically, it extracts to a directory and runs directly from there. But, I have found that the Gervill synthesizer sounds best. It is included in Java SDK, which I could not find with emerge.
Now to the question. Can anyone help me find a way to get the 64 bit version of TuxGuitar working with Gervill (Java SDK) using Calculate?
Using http://gpo.zugaina.org/ find overlay with tuxguitar, add a new overlay - # layman-a bircoph, update the database eix - # eix-update, unmask the latest version - # emerge-autounmask-write tuxguitar-1.2-r1 , save changes to files - # etc-update, installing the - # emerge tuxguitar-1.2-r1.
This sequence of actions, I do not install this program.
