I wish there was some good software for a guitar player in Linux. I need both teaching software and sound effects software.

Thanks for your feedback

Since the program is developed under JAVA there should be no need to RECOMPILE it. Just follow this steps

- Just UNZIP the program to any directory (DGuitar0.2)
- from that directory run a command like this "java -jar dist/DGuitar0.2.jar"

If you have any problems please let me know.

you need to change the path of the skins at start up. the program exits out while trying to load the default skin. the problem lies in the fact that the skins directory isn't where the program is looking for. you have the skins directory outside of the dist directory.

also, when packaging, it is nice if when you unzipped your package that all the files could be in its own directory by default instead of being strewn about everywhere in the current directory where the zip file is.
