Thank you for the several ideas. I have installed aps, for specifically tuxguitar, and edited the PKGBUILD, commenting the two lines about SWT.
I had done this as root, so when I ran pkgbuild I was told not to do so. I changed the ownership of the directory to my user and my group, chmod -R me:me ...
Pkgbuild ran, but put out an error. The earliest error message was here:
[javac] import org.eclipse.swt.SWT; [javac] ^ [javac] /var/build/src/tuxguitar-src-1.2/TuxGuitar/src/org/her ac/tuxguitar/gui/TuxGuitar.java:12: error: package org.eclipse.swt .events does not exist
I will install eclipse?
Thank you again. This is a great help, a learning process.

Thank you, LoneVVolf:
It is not clear to me how to obtain the PKGBUILD for Tuxguitar, since it
distributed through pacman. I tried to include an Archaudio repo, hoping that another version would be available via AUR. Alas! No such luck.

`yaourt -G tuxguitar` -- if you use yaourt.
Or as Sebastian says, use the ABS. But don't wait to synchronize *everything*, just `sudo abs community/tuxguitar`
Personally I prefer asp (from the AUR package asp-git): `asp export tuxguitar` -- fetch history (if asp does not already know about it) and export to directory in one move, plus no need to type the name of the repo first.
