View Full Version : [all variants] Awesome, I Compiled This Program! ...Now What?
September 17th, 2009, 03:44 AM
Hey again, fellas.
I just compiled Musescore as per these instructions (http://www.musescore.org/en/handbook/compile-instructions-ubuntu) (since for some reason the most recent version of Musescore in Add/Remove is 4 versions old...) and everything seemed to go just fine...but I don't know what to do now. How am I to install the program, or run it?

just guessing but try alt+f2 and then musescore

That runs the program that's 4 versions out of date. =/
It goes by "mscore" in the terminal, just for future reference in this thread.

If you compile from source, using checkinstall will allow you to manage your compiled software from your package manager.

God, maybe I'm dense, or maybe it's because it's late, but how do I run the program now that I've installed it with checkinstall? I seemed to do it all right and got this:
Done. The new package has been installed and saved to
You can remove it from your system anytime using:
dpkg -r mscore
Musescore is now gone from Applications > Sound & Video, and I can't run it from the terminal without it telling me to install it using apt-get install...wouldn't that just install the Musescore package that's 4 versions old?
I've also gone straight to the .deb package where it was installed with checkinstall and opened it with GDebi. It says it was successfully REinstalled, but still nothing...
