Sibelius 6 is a scorewriter program, created by Sibelius Software for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS, and RISC OS. It is used by composers, arrangers, performers, music publishers, teachers and students, particularly for writing classical, jazz, band, vocal, film and TV music. In addition to editing and printing scores, Sibelius can also play music back using high-quality sounds, scan in printed scores for editing, and publish scores on the Internet.

What works

Create & editing scores
Playback (Sibelius Essentials Sounds)
Export MIDI, audio and graphics

What does not

Print direct from the program, although you can choose [Export] --> [Graphics...], save music sheet as a picture and then you can print it in our OS, outside Wine/Sibelius. This is not necessary a error from the programs, but the OS itself. I run Zorin OS Lite 9 which is based on Lubuntu 14.04, which is based on Ubuntu 14.04, etc.

Additional Comments

Basic functions of the program works out of the box. I installed everything from the DVD. If you haven't installed Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 the setup notice it and installs it automatically. Bugs: Mixer looks "glitchy"
