You need to install Wine first and then reinstall Guitar Pro using Wine and it should work: ... n&iId=3782

Install Wine using the "Package Manager" , then go to and read the documentation on how to use it. I won't repeat that here as all the info on how to use Wine is already at that website. After you are familiar with how to use Wine you then install Guitar Pro using Wine.

I use Tuxguitar to open GP files.
You can install it through synaptic.
