What works

Installation (out of the box - no Wine tweaks needed), update patches, creating scores, saving them, reopening, printing, PDF printing (with cups-pdf), MIDI input (from a Roland GO:PIANO), midi output (to the Roland GO:PIANO, and to Qsynth/fluidsynth).

Actually I haven't found anything that didn't work.

What does not

Windows has a built-in soft synth. On Linux you have to install one, and run it, if you want to play your scores directly on your computer (via MIDI). This is not a problem, just a nice-to-know. Qsynth/fluidsynth will do the job. The Qsynth interface has a lot of settings that you may need to fiddle with to get it in shape for Noteworthy ... and in Noteworthy you will have to select Qsynth/fluidsynth as your MIDI output ... but that's just how MIDI works. 


I don't know if installing the qsynth package counts as a workaround - but you will need it, or something like it, to get MIDI sound directly from your computer.

Alternatively you can use an external hardware synth for MIDI playback via USB (just as you can in Windows).

What was not tested

Nothing, really.
