Can anyone point me please to the location, where to download this Muse Hub installer?

A .deb file is an installation file for Debian-based operating systems like Ubuntu, Mint, etc. Normally, if you double-click the file, it will ask you if you want to install the program. If you say yes, it will install the program for you. With some systems, if you right-click the file, a menu will pop up with a number of different choices. If you choose "Install ... " then it will install the program.

If double-clicking or using the menu does not install the file, then you can use the dpkg command. Here is some info:

Can I get the location for Windows? I've been searching for MuseHub for a while and the threads I came across said this wasn't available yet so I had given up on it.

Can't run the beta on linux-Ubuntu. Neither rebooting nor reinstalling Musehub. Simply it doesn't run. Previous nightlies do, but also they've been blocked.

You can't run the beta of MuseScore itself, or you can't run Muse Hub? How are you trying to run it, and what exactly goes wrong? And what do you mean "blocked" with regard to nightlies?

For Muse Hub, you might need to manually start the helper service - type "sudo muse-hub-service" before running "muse-hub" (no "sudo" needed).

Ideally you'd want to set up systemd to run the muse-hub-service for you so all you need to do is run muse-hub when you need it. The installer is suppose to do that on deb systems, but I've been having some weird issues creating it on fedora and I have yet to take time to work it out.

I have found that Musehub requires that your system use the systemD daemon. If you are using a system without systemD, Musehub will install but will not run.

Some versions of Ubuntu and it's derivatives do not use systemD by default. Others, such as Linux Mint, have decided that the disadvantages of systemD outweigh the advantages and no longer have it as default.

My solution was to use a USB key with AVL-MX21 for Musescore 4. AVL allows you to choose to run systemD at boot or not. AVL, like Ubuntu Studio, is designed specifically for music and video and comes preinstalled with Musescore 3.6 and a wide selection of music and video applications. It will run very well from a USB 3.0 key and will allow you to test MS 4.0 without the danger of messing up your everyday system.

Just run the muse-hub-service app in a terminal before launching muse-hub, or set it to launch automatically in the init service of your choice. If systemd is an issue to you. I honestly don't know what versions of Ubuntu don't use systemd. It's pretty ubiquitous. Mint is dropping support of systemd-oom not systemd itself. Slackware, and Alpine aside, most of the non systemd distros are really small usage even among linux users, especially desktop.

I downloaded Muse Hub, but now at every startup on MacOs a window says that Muse Hub is trying to install something. Is that normal?

One thing I'd like to ask, I installed the Beta for MuseScore 4 without using the MuseHub installer, because for some reason, even though I have a Windows 10 system, it won't let me install it. Is there any reason for that fact?
