don't use "oss", if you are using it from ubuntu repositories just install tuxguitar and tuxguitar-alsa packages.
then what you need is a MIDI device working.
i suggest you to use fluidsynth:

* install fluidsynth and a soundfont
~$ sudo apt-get install fluidsynth fluid-soundfont-gm

* launch it
~$ fluidsynth -s -i -l -a pulseaudio -m alsa_seq -p FluidSynth -z 1024 /usr/share/sounds/sf2/FluidR3_GM.sf2

Now you have a fluidsynth server running, then you have to select it in tuxguitar,
Go to menu "Tools -> Settings", and at "Sound" section select "FluidSynth" in MIDI Port.
