Requirements for current version:

  • qt 3.1.0 or newer (Version 3.1.2 recommended).
    MusE does _not_ compile with older versions.
    Please compile Qt3 with "-thread" option so you get the lib instead of
  • ALSA Version 0.9.0 or newer (cvs).
  • libsndfile version 1.0.1 (current is 1.0.4)
  • gcc 3.x.x or 2.95.3
    Problems are reported with (unofficial) 2.96, so if you're using it you may be unable to run MusE.
    NOTE: you _must_ compile MusE with the same compiler you used to compile QT
  • glibc 2.3.1
    (may work with older versions but untested)
  • Linux kernel with rtc (RealTimeClock) driver (device /dev/rtc)
    (recommended: apply "low latency patches" for low timing jitter)
  • highly recommended for audio: JACK download at jack-audio-connection-kit-0.61.0.tar.gz
  • fluidsynth-1.0.0 (formerly iiwusynth) from fluid
  • if you want to use Tommi Ilmonenīs "givertcap" you need More Infos at
