I think you must use wine.
To install wine

Using Synaptic please first enable the universe repository:

Launch Synaptic from menu: System->Administration->Synaptic package manager
From Synaptic menu: Settings->Repositories-> Tab Ubuntu software
enable "Community Maintained open source software (universe)"
Close Synaptic

Then open a Terminal from the menu Applications->Accessories->Terminal and type:

sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install wine

give your user password when requested, you don't see nothing when you type it, then press enter.

Then there are a lot of howto on the net:

Hope this helps

You might want to have a look at TuxGuitar, which is free software and does many of the same things as GuitarPro.

Can you help with this problem?
