If you are having problems with Guitar Pro starting or crashing soon after startup, try switching to Adwaita theme. Helped me.

I'm using Manjaro Openbox, but I believe it's some GTK problem, so feel free to try this on other systems too :)

If you have any libpng12 problems, you need to install both 32 and 64 bit versions from AUR:

I got my problems solved by using the linux version (not the demo) and modifying PKGBUILD to use that.


1. Click "Download snapshot"
2. Untar
3. Modify PKGBUILD (see below)
4. Run makepkg -si
5. Run /opt/GuitarPro6/GuitarPro
6. Happy shredding

Here are the modified parts in my PKGBUILD:

Note that this downloads the full version (not the demo/trial). I don't know if there is a difference, but I have the license key so this worked for me.

Could you please use arch dependend fields, for instance depends_x86 and depends_i686 [1]? Using this CARCH magic breaks the AUR RPC interface [2]

I had the same issue as apaatsio and followed alex.m comment.

Now I see: /opt/GuitarPro6/GuitarPro: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Here is the ldd: => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found

Seems like I am missing quite a few of these, are there some base packages that I am missing here?

@apaatsio: I had the same issue with and even sudo did not work for me. This is how I fixed it:
1) install lib32-boost-libs package from AUR (
2) trick guitar pro by creating some links:
ln /usr/lib32/ /usr/lib32/
ln /usr/lib32/ /usr/lib32/
ln /usr/lib32/ /usr/lib32/
