    Re: music scoring / sequencer behavior query

    The mouse-overs contain no words or symbols of any kind. Is there a way I can fill them with anything?
    Not that I know of, but you should get the hang of things eventually. Here is a simple video tutorial which shows you the basics:

    In MuseScore, create a new score (File -> New), choose a flute for example.
    Enter note entry by pressing N, Press C. It will put a C on the staff, use the Up and down arrows keys to hear the notes on the staff.

    Can I shut compiz off without uninstalling it, and if so, how?

    Go to preferences>appearance and set effects to "none".

    Wow! That made a lot of difference! I'm finding I like the low latency far more than the Compiz effects I was getting.
    Is there really a lot of latency improvement between No Effects and no Compiz?

    What Desktop Environments are low latency? I once tried XFCE, but that was kind of traumatic. Are there alternatives?

    I'm currently using Gnome (inasfar as I understand the concept of a DE).

    No effects = no compiz. When no effects is selected, you will be using metacity instead of compiz.

    Latency is an audio thing and DEs are a graphical thing, so no DE can really claim to be low latency. However, the lighter your DE is, the more resources you will have free for things like audio, and on mid-low end machines this can really make a difference. Some lightweight DEs to try:
    XFCE
    LXDE
    IceWM
    Enlightenment

    For further research, take a look at AVLinux which is an OS designed for low-latency work. It is based on Debian and uses the Liquorix kernel with LXDE, also includes many of the best audio programs.
