The final release of version 2 of this notation editor.
Old test results
The test results you have selected are very old and may not represent the current state of Wine.
Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)
Everything, adding notes, transposition, playback (after fiddling). I'm using acer aspire one running linpux linux (based on fc8), to make playback work: Wine only seems to pick up OSS software in the audio tab of winecfg, timidity (software that plays midi, which will produce sound in NWC) only outputs to ALSA (the new version of OSS). Go into package manager and install the OSS wrapper for ALSA and any associated packages, then close and open a terminal. Assuming you have timidity installed (http://timidity.sourceforge.net), type "timidity -iA -Os". This will open the sequencer ports, leave this terminal open. Then load Noteworthy in Wine, go to the midi tab in the options or whatever and take the wine midi wrapper off the used list and all of the timidity boxes 0-3 (there might be 2 sets, one will work, the other will not, just test it out). The sound should now work pretty much perfectly and generally in time, so long as the terminal window stays open. I hope this helps any fellow new linux users.
What does not
What was not tested
Just follow the tutorial if you need help, if your Wine picks up ALSA then skip the OSS wrapper part.
print preview problem

I decided to try Noteworthy Composer in Wine again with 1.3. I have no problem installing Noteworthy with timidity and alsa-oss and it works -- almost. Noteworthy crashes in print preview if it is a complex score. Simple short scores work fine. This is about the only significant problem of Noteworthy in Wine. Previous reports of many ties and slurs rings true but I haven't exactly tested that. It agrees with my assessment of "complex score". I was able to get 1.75 to work fine but not 2.0. 2.0 had the same print preview problem in Wine 1.2 and now in Wine 1.3. If you are using Noteworthy for some serious music the inability to do a print preview makes it unusable which is a pity, so close but so far. Since 1.75 didn't cause a problem I have to think it is some incompatibility that is unique to 2.0 and Wine. Somebody smarter than me will have to figure it out and I will have to revert back to VirtualBox.

I am running Noteworthy in Ubuntu 8.10 on a Compaq Presario.
I tried out the Noteworthy Player first and it took some time to get the midi working, though I think that was as much an Ubuntu issue as anything. I am using Fluidsynth with the Qsynth GUI and once I had worked out how to use it, midi worked fine.
When I first installed noteworthy, calling the print preview caused it to crash but I shut down as I was going out and when I came back and tried again print preview worked OK. Strange.
