Hey i am using guitar-pro on 64bit system and for some reason i can't import guitarpro soundbanks. The soundbank import program fails to launch or something.

Is there a solution for this? Does anyone else get it?

On a fresh arch I additionally needed to install lib32-libxrender and lib32-freetype2

lib32-libxml2 is required

I needed to install multilib/lib32-glib2, might want to add it as a dependency?

This helped me with my bought Guitarpro deb file:
In my 64bit Arch I had to copy both files and to the /usr/lib32 folder.

Is that download link legal?

I added the missing dependency, which caused the issues with qt, along with a full version of guitar pro instead of the demo, due to it being a smaller download and doesn't require an upgrade to activate. It still asks for the registration key, thus there's nothing legally wrong with this, but if you want to run the demo instead, just:
-download the demo from the website to the PKGBUILD folder
-change the second md5sum to the demo file's md5sum
-change the second source to the demo file name (such as 'gp6-full-linux-demo-rXXXXX.deb', where XXXXX is the version/rev number)

Unfortunately I can't maintain this anymore, so I plan to Disown this as I don't have an Arch install available at the moment to test.

Awesome, I found out the missing dep, it's libgnomeui or lib32-libgnomeui (64bit). I'll add it right away, but I still can't maintain or test this due to lack of an environment.

I think the GTK theme issue can be fixed with gtk-engine-murrine (32bit) lib32-gtk-engine-murrine (64bit) installed. My Arch install blew up, so I can't test this :(

Well, you can ask upstream or the forums for help, but it's definitely an issue with QT, most likely a regression of some sort.
I haven't looked into all that much myself because I don't care all that much about a little prettiness issue.

Although I did find out that Ubuntu has a similar issue only affecting 64 bit, which maybe the same issue but I don't have a 32 arch install to test. It was temporarily fixed by downgrading some sort of 32 bit library that I'm unfamiliar with. Here's some more info on that:
