How To Install Denemo 1.0.4 On Ubuntu, Linux Mint And Debian

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Denemo is a Linux music notation program that allows the user to “type music” with the PC-Keyboard, played via MIDI or recorded with an external microphone, plugged into the computer. The latest version available is Denemo 1.0.4.

how to install Denemo 1.0.4 on Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Linux Mint 15 Olivia, Linux Mint 14 Nadia, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Debian Jessie, Debian Sid, Debian Wheezy and Debian Squeeze.

In this article I will show you how to install Denemo 1.0.4 on Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Linux Mint 15 Olivia, Linux Mint 14 Nadia, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Debian Jessie, Debian Sid, Debian Wheezy and Debian Squeeze.

It is not available via PPA, so we have to install it from sources. Follow these instructions for a successful installation:

1. Install the needed dependencies:

$ sudo apt-get install aubio evince fftw fluidsynth gtk3 guile librsvg libsmf libxml2 lilypond portaudio portmidi intltool

Download the Denemo 1.0.4 archive and extract it:

$ wget -c http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/denemo/denemo-1.0.4.tar.gz
$ cd denemo-1.0.4

Make the propper configurations:

$ ./configure

Compile and install Denemo 1.0.4:

$ make
$ sudo make install

Later update: To use Denemo on every Gnu/Linux distribution (withount installing it), to avoid dependency issues, just download the following binary file, set execution permissions and run it (thanks for the tip Richard):

$ wget -c denemo.org/downloads/denemo-1.0.4-0.linux-x86
$ chmod +x denemo-1.0.4-0.linux-x86
$ ./denemo-1.0.4-0.linux-x86

  1. Did you know there is a binary package available for GNU/Linux?
    This should work on any distro, and you do not even need to sudo.
    It avoids the danger of having incompatible run time libraries, at the expense of being taking up 50Mb of disk space.

  2. I should add that the latest pre-release version can be built using your original instructions but with the tarball provided by http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/denemo.git/snapshot/denemo-master.tar.gz
