Ubuntu 14.04 Desktop Linux
Reply #7 –
Setting up Ubuntu 14.04 for use with NoteWorthy Composer and the NoteWorthy Composer Viewer is generally a simple task. I recommend using the terminal to install the necessary packages. If you are using an older version of NWC, then the following packages should be all that is needed to get started:
sudo apt-get install wine ttf-mscorefonts-installer gnome-exe-thumbnailer timidity
I originally tried to install Wine from the Ubuntu Software Center. This caused problems, probably due to license prompts in the mscorefonts package. If this happens to you, you might need to reinstall the mscorefonts, like so:
sudo apt-get --purge --reinstall install ttf-mscorefonts-installer gnome-exe-thumbnailer
NoteWorthy Composer 2.75 Requires Wine 1.7
The default Wine 1.6 stable release includes some buggy support libraries that break some aspects of NWC 2.75. In order to use newer features, such as the Tools, User Objects control panel, you will have to upgrade to Wine 1.7. Instructions can be found on the WineHQ Download page for Ubuntu.
