    No audio in Finale 2008

    Hello all!

    I am a veteran of the windows experience, but I am quite new to Linux. I really want to use Linux for everything, but I haven't been able get any audio after installing finale 2008. It installed perfectly, but when I tell it to play, I hear nothing. Many other posts that I have read have suggested different notation software, but I really need to use finale for the class that I'm in. Is there a way that I can get finale to work in ubuntu? I'd really rather not have to use windows any more for anything. Thanks in advance!

    You installed in under Wine right ?

    That's correct. I'm using ubuntu 9.04. After installing all the necessary updates and such, I installed wine, and then I used wine to install finale. I am able to open music files, but it tells me that it is running on very low memory...on top of the fact that it won't play any audio

    You might try getting the latest beta version of Wine (1.1.30) from http://www.winehq.org/download/deb . I've found that it generally works much better than the stable version (1.0.1) which comes in Ubuntu's repository.

    It also would be nice if you would post a review of Finale 2008 on this page, so that other people who want to use it can see how well it works. The test results currently on that page are quite old.

    Re: No audio in Finale 2008

    I installed the latest beta version of wine, uninstalled and reinstalled finale, but it still gives me the same error. It brings up a windows labeled "native instruments" and says "warning: memory is getting low. This may cause dropouts or other artifacts." I'm thinking that it is a driver issue, given that it installed perfectly in every other way, and while the file is playing, it shows everything correctly and moves along the score, just as it should. There just isn't any sound. Are there any drivers for wine that would fix this audio/midi problem? Thanks!

    Does anyone know if my problem is a driver issue, and if so, are there any driver updates for wine that will allow finale to function properly? Thanks

    Can you play audio in other Ubuntu applications...?

    Edit: This Wine report suggests whilst it can't play MIDI files itself it can still save them. Maybe this is your problem.


    Things I've noticed
    by Emma Cohen on Monday September 29th 2008, 3:15
    -Upon opening it says "Error opening MIDI driver FINMIDI: Module not found." The console output specifies "err:module:import_dll Library MSVCR80.dll (which is needed by L"C:\\PROGRAM FILES\\FINALE 2008\\FINMIDI.DLL") not found. I think this is related to the lack of sound.

    -Although it won't play any sounds itself, it will save a file as a MIDI to be played by another application; but movie player complains (/after/ playing the file) that it can't find the right codec (although that may just happen to me).

    -'Save As' only shows alternative file types if I do it before doing anything else. If I make any changes beforehand or if I open the window a second time it shows a blank box there.

    Oh, and wine's IE doesn't seem to be up to displaying the help files.

    Interesting. Audio in other applications seems to work perfectly...it's just finale in wine, so perhaps the thing you quoted has something to do with it? I ran wine through the terminal and copied the output:

    Does this tell you anything? It doesn't mean much to me yet

    Re: No audio in Finale 2008

    It also told me "fixme:jack:JACK_drvLoad error loading the jack library libjack.so.0, please install this library to use jack". I installed jack and downloaded the missing library. Then I went into winecfg and selected jack as the audio driver. However, finale now says that midimap.cfg is corrupted and tells me that it failed to start the VST engine...any ideas?
