Whenever I try to export a tab into a PDF Tuxguitar just dies after I have chosen the place where to save the file. I get the following error message:

$ tuxguitar
java: ../../src/xcb_lock.c:77: _XGetXCBBuffer: Assertion `((int) ((xcb_req) - (dpy->request)) >= 0)' failed.

Every now and again I can export it if I deactivate everything except the tabulature in the PDF options. Most of the time the program just crashes.

your java version is fine.. i'm not sure what can it be.
i'll try to reproduce the bug to fix it.

for now you can export the file to Lilypond format,
and then, you can generate a very nice PDF with lilypond executing on a terminal:
lilypond File.ly

( ofcourse you need install lilypond first :) .. it's available at ubuntu repositories )
