What works

Everything should work right out of the box and very stable, as far as I can tell: Midi, printing etc. Most problems, that arose for me, had to do with wine and configuration.

If anything doesn't work, the developer is always concerned to make it run under linux/wine also.

What does not

Sometimes there are problems with sound, but probably they are wine or ubuntu-related. On my laptop there are some issues with the Control key , but I'm pretty sure that this has to do with wine (or ubuntu) also - I'm using there the alpha version of ubuntu 9.04. 

Workarounds

What was not tested

Most things I notate I do with it under ubuntu / linux, and it should work without problems.

HowTo / Notes

Installing a MIDI synthesizer for pulseaudio

It took me a long time to find this out. This is not wine related but always works if you want to have a midi-synthesizer running in background. 

  • First install fluidsynth using your package manager
  • Check that a sound font was installed into /usr/share/sounds/sf3/ and chose one for the script below.
  • Now, for KDE:
    • Create the ~/.local/share/applications/fluidsynth.desktop with content like
    • [Desktop Entry]
      Type=Application
      Version=1.0
      GenericName=Midi Synthesizer
      Name=Fluidsynth
      TryExec=/usr/bin/fluidsynth
      Exec=/usr/bin/fluidsynth --no-shell --server --audio-driver=pulseaudio --midi-driver=alsa_seq --sample-rate 44100 -o synth.cpu-cores=2 /usr/share/sounds/sf3/FluidR3Mono_GM.sf3
      # for debug add --dump remove --no-shell
      # if you need more midi channels, add --midi-channels=
      # for less background CPU use add --chorus 0 --reverb 0
      Categories=Audio;System;
      StartupNotify=false
      X-GNOME-Autostart-Delay=60
      Terminal=false
      #for debug: true
    • I am no pro in KDE desktop files. And I did not fully test this yet, so experiment a bit with it. You can start it from KDE-Startmenu like any other app.
    • When you are finished add it to System Settings/Startup/Auto Start/Desktop File. It will automaticalls start at login.
  • For other Desktops this should work similar...
