Well, I sorted the installation out - no one on here responded, but apparently I needed development libraries - not mentioned in the installation instructions...

But using the program, it's definitely not for me - which is unfortunate because it means I still haven't found a satisfactory notation program for Linux. I compose full-time, writing jazz and contemporary chamber music, and have been wanting to switch to a Linux desktop for work purposes - running on a stable, reliable system is very attractive!

But the software in the music field always lets it down, either in stability, user-intuitiveness or in flexibility. I suspect that most of the programs are written from a programmer's point of view rather than a musician's.

I'm not a programmer, but I'd love to help out in some way - I think that MuseScore is the first real attempt to redress the appalling balance in this area. How can I help? - Dec 12 2007
This actually looks like a decent notation package for Linux... but I can't get it to compile. I get the following error:


-- Check for working CXX compiler: CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER-NOTFOUND
CMake Error: your CXX compiler: "CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER-NOTFOUND" was not found. Please set CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER to a valid compiler path or name.
CMake Error: Internal CMake error, TryCompile configure of cmake failed
-- Check for working CXX compiler: CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER-NOTFOUND -- broken
CMake Error: The C++ compiler "CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER-NOTFOUND" is not able to compile a simple test program.
It fails with the following output:

CMake will not be able to correctly generate this project.
CMake Error: your CXX compiler: "CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER-NOTFOUND" was not found. Please set CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER to a valid compiler path or name.


I'm not sure what to do next. Can anyone help please?
