[Rosegarden-user] Printing staff formatting suggestions

2012-08-28 Thread k-12


LillyPond sounds like something really nice, I say sounds like because I 
haven't been able to print with it yet, or even see a print-preview. I've just 
installed Musix-2.0, I'm next going to set up the printing on it (wifi net 
printer).

When LillyPond is buggy or missing maybe a simpler other than lillypond print 
would suffice. It's a real pain to have to do captures and then load them into 
gimp for even rudimentary printing.

The score formatting really should give the composer the option to add/remove 
measures AND more importantly decide which measures will go on which line 
(often to follow lyrics for example). I can also think of a situatiion when I 
may want to later add guitar tabs, so there I would want to control spacing as 
well as the number of lines to the page to leave room between them.

Ditto for the indenting, it seems to be a thing of the past in writing anyway 
so maybe options are needed?

Rosegarden uses Lilypond for printing. You should be able to print directly
from Rosegarden as long as Lilypond is installed. I use Suse as well. I
seem to remember needng to manually install lilypond with a script because
i had trouble finding an rpm for suse but it wasn't a big deal.

The Suse 2.12.3-8.9 rpm was installed, even updated 2.15.42-6 but every attempt 
to print with either crashed. So I installed the source 2.16.0-1 from the 
project site and it's printing ok.

Thanks

BTW which suse are you using (I'm on 12.1)  how did you get rosegarden to make 
a sound?

I just installed Musix-2.0 which is OK buty if I have to boot a studio system 
just for rosegarden than I might as well boot windows  be able to do other 
things while waiting for inspiration instead of perspiration :-)
