no playback at all
Hi, I'm new here so forgive the obvious gotchas.
I have v0.9.4 on Ubuntu Linux with the sound font /usr/share/sounds/sf2/FluidR3_GS.sf2 (installed by Apt on Ubuntu). I installed it using Apt sources (https://launchpad.net/~mscore-ubuntu/+archive) which was really easy.
My first impression is that MuseScore has the makings of a very good editor for musicians. I am very impressed. I quickly found how to enter music, change the layout, add text etc.
I got some errors.
1. a message box poped up: "Open Temp File failed: permission denied" when I tried to save my edits. It doesn't normally do this on me.
2. I cannot play anything. When I go into play mode, the space bar jumps me into note edit mode. I get no sound at all. However, the PC produces sounds ok and I also have Jack audio server running (which doesn't help me when I enable or disable Jack in the MuseScore preferences).
3. I wrote something with two parts (flute & violin). The parts contained various beamed quavers and semi-quavers. I tried to swap the staves using the Create | Instruments dialog, which has 'Up' and 'Down' buttons. These happily swap the staves over including all the notes but NOT including the beams. There is a bug here: the beams all get left on the original stave, no longer attached to their quavers.
