Scoring sheet music ?


I'm looking for a program similar to Melody Assistant, but obviously for Linux
http://www.myriad-online.com/en/products/melody.htm

I'd like to be able to score music without using a (shudder) pencil and paper.

Well...

I haven't a clue if this will do all of what you need, but it's all I could turn up that didn't look either awful/useless or broken...

Brahms: Freeware music notation application for linux. Hasn't been updated since 2002 from the looks of the newspage, though, so it's still using ALSA .05. http://brahms.sourceforge.net/

It was linked off of http://www.freebyte.com/music/, which had a lot of promising entries (most of which are broken links >_<) :-/

HTH!

Check out NoteEdit at:
http://noteedit.berlios.de/

or lilypond at:
http://lilypond.org/web/

Lilypond is very powerfull but a little hard to wrap your mind around. You may also want to look around http://www.linuxmusician.com/ if you are curious at what else is out there. I have used lilypond once or twice before and it works well, just not easy!

That page has some good links on it, thanks.

However, if that page is representative of the development interest of scoring music on Linux, I'm in trouble

EDIT PhilD, NoteEdit looks promising...I'll post my findings.

Try GScore. Alternatively try running some Windows scoring programs in Wine.

Thanks, I'm checking that out now.

NoteEdit seems rather good and featureful but the typesetting is a little clumsy.
