Please see the results for Mozart 10
This is an testing update using WINE-1.1.19 This version of Mozart was also tested on Slackware 12.1 using WINE-1.1.11 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
HELP file rendering with does not work.
What was not tested
External hardware synth and external piano keyboard inputs were not tested.
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. HELP files are not rendered. 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.
