This has probably been around for a while but I just discovered it today.

Musescore download

If you're running ANY Linux distribution, Red Hat, Centos, Linux Mint, Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, Suse... pick your distribution, pretty much anything that's running Linux.

Download the appimage and you can run the latest Musescore without having to install it and without needing system root rights.

Just run the file that you downloaded. For example, if you have a 64-bit system (which most of us have in today's world) download the 64-bit appimage and do this:

Open a terminal window, go into the directory where the appimage is located.
Type "chmod 754 MuseScore-3.4.2-x86_64.AppImage" (without the quotation marks)
Type "./MuseScore-3.4.2-x86_64.AppImage" (without the quotation marks)

And there's the latest musescore program up and running. The program just runs from within its container file. The appimage file contains all of the resources that are needed for the program to run, regardless of what other programs or libraries may or may not be installed on your computer. And they just stay in the container file, nothing is installed on your computer.

The whole thing is just as slick as all get-out.

Is this computer comedy or computer satire? And if I change to this thing called Linux, will I be protected from the Coronavirus?

Er... is that a serious question or do you really not understand what I wrote there?

Linux is a computer operating system that is used on many millions of computers, and the Internet mostly runs on computers that use Linux. It also makes a dandy (and very secure) desktop computer operating system. It's recommended for things like online banking because of its secure design. I've been using it for all of my computer needs (desktops, laptops and servers) for over twenty years.

Musescore is a program for writing music on paper.

Coronavirus is a human illness and has nothing to do with computer viruses, which are a completely different thing. Most computer viruses are aimed at either Microsoft Windows or Apple computers due to their market share.

I hope this clarifies what I was writing about. Sorry if it wasn't stated clearly. I deal with things like system administration and programming all the time and sometimes I make assumptions that I probably shouldn't.

Linux is free and all the software that can run on Linux is also free.

Apple macOS is base on FreeBSD, another flavour of UNIX.

On Mac you can simply go to the downloads page, click download for the Mac version, and when the dmg has downloaded, open it and drag Musescore into Applications in the little window that appears. Presto! Great app! We're now on version 3. I would guess that the Windows process is similarly seamless.

Download Musescore
