What works

This is an testing update using WINE-1.1.9

This version of Mozart was tested on Slackware 12.1 with WINE-1.1.4

All test results are as before with no regressions in the new version of WINE.

All music editing and entry functions work without issues, as do file saving and creating

and searching functions.  Printing scores works quite well using Cups.  The fonts used for

lyrics in MOZART are limited to those included with WINE--unless you install other fonts.

MIDI playback with Timidity++ is also without problems, as is playback with the emu10k1

wavetable functions under ALSA.

What does not

Some HELP file rendering does not work.

Workarounds

What was not tested

External hardware synth and external piano keyboard inputs were not tested.

Additional Comments

In order to hear playback, the app requires a software synth such as Timidity++ to be installed and running when the app is started. Alternatively, a soundcard's hardware MIDI synth running under ALSA and loaded with the appropriate soundfont also works quite well. Some javascript links in the HELP file are not followed. The app Kchmviewer may help with this. Some keyboard shortcut keys are trapped by the OS and so Mozart's shortcut re-mapping function may be needed for those. For difficulties, refer to the quite friendly and knowledgeable Yahoo user group described at: http://www.mozart.co.uk/mozartists/mailinglist.htm

HowTo / Notes

Note
For the note entry echo to function properly, MOZART *REQUIRES* a software or hardware synthesizer
recognized by WINE/ALSA, and selected in the MOZART menu: Global preferences | MIDI port. Timidity++ in
server mode works well for this--so does Jack/Fluidsynth. Without a true synth port, it is possible to select
MIDI input and MIDI output ports that cause an I/O feedback. This can cause a note to automatically
and repetitively enter itself over and over, making the program un-usable and un-closeable without killing
WINE. This condition may require one to do the equivalent of this at a console:
$killall -9 wineserver
$killall -9 winedevice.exe
To avoid this condition, do not select "wine MIDI mapper" as a MIDI output port, do not enable MIDI in, and
for overkill, mute the selections under: Global preferences | MIDI echo. Or just use Timidity++,
Jack/Fluidsynth, a soundcard with MIDI ports, or an external MIDI device recognized by ALSA,
and select a MIDI port in MOZART menu: Global preferences | MIDI port.
WARNING
Running the program *without* a synth and Mozart's note-echo turned on can cause a recursive note entry (looping). Trying to enter a note in this state causes it to be persistently re-entered ad-infinitum. This is solved by using a softsynth such as Timidity++ or fluidsynth and setting Mozart to use it for note output.
