Projects / MuseScore


MuseScore lets you notate and compose music easily with your keyboard, your mouse, or a MIDI keyboard. You can print beautifully engraved sheet music or export it as PDF or PNG. You can play your score, transpose it, and save it as audio or MIDI file. MuseScore also supports MusicXML to let you share your composition with other scorewriters. MuseScore is often advertised as a cost effective alternative for Sibelius and Finale.

            Hi I compiled this on puppy Linux and when I run it, It doesn't display the menu graphics, the boxes still work just no icons on them?

            I also tried other peoples versions Debian and Slackware, both of those versions the same problem. I was wondering if you could package the menus graphics and tell me where to place them. That would be the easiest way of overcoming this issue. thanks for your time.


            I'll include a link to a picture of the problem.
