TuxGuitar Wont Open

Ok so iv been using Tuxguitar on my macbook pro for awhile now, and as of today the software wont open. I did have a system update for Mountain Lion the other day, but I don't see how that could be the problem. I tried re-downloading the software but it still wont open and have no idea what to do to get it working.

Any help would be appreciated

I also installed an update and now it won't open anymore
The update had something to do with Java. But I don't know how to solve it. Also installing Java Runtime didn't change anything...

Just revert back to the older version of Java...

See, Tuxguitar hasn't had updates for nearly 2 years or so, it hasn't updated with Apple either, so the problem is, you got the OS update. I dont even know what to do to fix that, so probably investing in GP6 or running bootcamp are alternatives.

Bought a new Mac the other day and noticed this problem happening on Yosemite. Here's a fix:

Open up the Terminal (in Applications/Utilities) and enter the following:
Code:
open /Applications/Tuxguitar.app/Contents/MacOS/

That will open up Finder. Now open up the file called tuxguitar (not the .jar) in a text editor.

Replace the following:
Code:
##JVM ARGUMENTS VM_ARGS="-Xmx512m"

with this:
Code:
##JVM ARGUMENTS VM_ARGS="-d32 -Xmx512m"

That will tell Java to run this particular application in the 32-bit VM. Now you should be able to open up TuxGuitar again. Rock on! \m/
