Linux Daily

Daily usage of linux, raw style

If you want to tune your guitar in linux, you’re in for some trouble. Compiling code, problems with audio etc etc. There are millions of guitar tuners for windows, why does it have to be so complicated in linux? The solution? Use one of those millions using wine.

The package is wine, the program I’m using is Digital Guitar Tuner, chosen randomly from tucows.com .

On Ubuntu 8.10, it just works. Double click the installer, install, access program from menu. There is some tweaking you can do in the options to control the expected noise level, I’m using something close to 30. There is no extra configuration needed, not in the tuner itself, not in the audio options in wine. If it doesn’t work, you probably have problems with the audio set-up.
