Context: Version 2.0.1 retrieved and installed via Synaptic from PPA under Linux Mint 17.1


  1. Start MuseScore
  2. Open "Plugins | Plugin Creator"
  3. In the Plugin Creator, select "Help | Manual" or the equivalent toolbar button
  4. A window pane labelled "Manual" opens to the right of the text pane

Result: the "Manual" pane is empty, with no text whatsoever. Pressing its [Home] button has no effect.

Note: It makes no difference whether the manual is called for with or without a plug-in loaded or entered in the textual pane.


Linux Mint uses the packages targeted at Ubuntu.

Anybody else has the same issue under Ubuntu or any of its derivative? In fact, I would guess it should affect (more or less) any Linux installation.

(And, yes, I understand it has probably nothing to do with coding, but there is no "Packaging" component in the issue properties; "Code" seems to me the least wrong).

Title changed to reflect the possibility it is not just a Linux Mint issue, but a more generic Linux issue.

Bumping, as the issue is still present with ver 2.0.2 (for the precision: 2.0.2+dfsg-1ubuntu1~trusty2) under Linux Mint 17.2

Please note that the Launchpad PPA page ( ) directs to send comments and bugs reports to, so this IS the proper place to file bug reports about this distribution.
