TuxGuitar must be version 1.1

Bug #366476 reported by Pablo Estigarribia
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
tuxguitar (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: tuxguitar

Actually tuxguitar is not working fine in ubuntu since pulseaudio is working in Ubuntu, see:

It makes Ubuntu too hard to get TuxGuitar working fine for some users, the best solution that we see is to include latest version of tuxguitar or at least leave a message in tuxguitar package to recomend users to download latest version from http://tuxguitar.com.ar/download.html
There users can get a .deb package that works fine for Ubuntu, important thing to note is users should remove tuxguitar-1.0 package before install tuxguitar 1.1 - I got error message trying to update because there are some differences in packaging I think.

Another note that should be wrote is, users should change midi port to Gervill inside Preferences -Sound after open TuxGuitar first time, It's necessary to get Tux Guitar working totally well.

But it's not working fine, from Preferences -> sound. Gervill option does not appears as a Midi Port, so I can't hear anything..

You are in true...

Now I installed tuxguitar-jsa and gervill is displayed and working fine with this...

So maybe to fix this tuxguitar-jsa should be a dependency and used by default for tuxguitar, or some note in Description for tuxguitar package should be added about this.
