cpan. In a terminal, simply run the appropriate command from the options below for the version you want to install. It will ask the administrator (super user) password and then install everything necessary to run ChordPro.
sudo cpan install wxchordpro

wxchordpro at a terminal prompt.
You will get a file open dialog. To close the program, you can press
Cancel and terminate the program with
sudo cpan install chordpro

chordpro --version. That should return a result like
