Additional Comments

Installation and running need to increase the maximum number of opened file in the user space. Ope terminal ad execute this command: sudo echo "$(whoami) - nofile 16384" | tee -a /etc/security/limits.conf >> /etc/security/limits.d/99-wine.conf Type your password on prompt, then reboot and install. The command above will add a line in system configuration file to increase the default number of file that a process can open at runtime. This is limited for security reasons. See https://linux.die.net/man/5/limits.conf (or type "man limits.conf" in a terminal) for more references.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

To install:                    

NB: This was still found through a somewhat hit-and-miss process, so if you have any notes or spot any unnecessary steps, please let me know.

1) Install wine and wine-dev

2) Get winetricks: in terminal enter 'wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks' (without quotes, and assume the same for all terminal entries below)

3) In terminal enter 'sh winetricks' and select:

corefonts
dotnet11
dotnet20
gdiplus
msxml3
msxml4
msxml6
vcrun6
vcrun2005
vcrun2005sp1

(This is one step where there may be some bloat. dotnet20 and the last three are definitely needed, the rest I install to be safe).

4) Install wineasio. At time of writing, it's not in the repositories, so the source is available here http://sourceforge.net/projects/wineasio

You will need the file asio.h from the Steinberg Asio SDK, found at http://www.steinberg.net/en/company/3rd_party_developer/sdk_download_portal/asio_sdk.html (requires a free account to download).

Just unzip the SDK, copy "asio.h" from the folder "common" into the wineasio source folder, then get on with installing it.

You will also need the Jack audio server and its development files from the repositories, or the install will fail.

6) Enter the Sibelius 5 DVD, and find the location of the installer msi - on mine it's /Windows/Sibelius/SibeliusEnglishInstaller.msi

In terminal enter 'wine msiexec /i /SibeliusEnglishInstaller.msi and wait for install.

7) Find the "Other Applications" section of the Sibelius DVD and install Sibelius Sounds Essentials (SSE_Setup.exe)

8) I recommend changing Wine's Audio driver to "OSS" using winecfg. It seems more stable to me.

A possible problem you might have: Once started, I heard no sound, but clicking on "Play - > Playback Devices" once a score was loaded, and then selecting "Audio Engine Options" seemed to fix this. That was kind of weird, as I didn't change any options.

Finally, to those who are having C++ or C runtime errors - this is something to do with the vcrun libraries.
I don't know how to remove them, so you're going to have to uninstall wine, delete your .wine folder (in "/home/[user]" - it's hidden), and start all over again.

--WARNING! DELETING THE .WINE FOLDER WILL  REMOVE ALL YOUR CURRENTLY INSTALLED WINE APPLICATIONS--

Sorry... I ran into this issue though, and starting over worked out for me.

Finally, I hope it works for you!
