The Dmuse Integrated Development Environment will work on any computer which has X-windows installed. Both Linux and recent Apple OS X versions come with an X-windows server by default.
X11 Fonts for Dmuse should be installed in order to view all characters properly. The fonts must be installed on the computer which is used to display the Dmuse window, not necessarily the computer which is actually running Dmuse (unless you are running the program and displaying its windows on the same computer). Therefore, the fonts are given below in a separate zip file for installation independent of the main Dmuse distribution. These fonts were created January 2008 (new tab character version of the fonts):
After you download the following .zip file, uncompress the files, and type "make" within the newly created directory. This should identify the correct directory to copy the fonts into. After installing the fonts, you should restart X-windows to ensure that the new fonts are being used.
Font samples and a description of the character set used by Dmuse is available on this page.
The muse2ps program is a command-line program which will convert stage2 or MPG files into PostScript files containing printable graphical music notation. The PostScript files can then be printed or converted into PDF files. See the muse2ps installation instructions page for detailed instructions on how to download, compile and run muse2ps.
