Could someone try to install Frescobaldi in Gnome and report if it succeeded or not?

I have installed this on Ubuntu Intrepid 8.10 (Gnome-based) and it works, but seemed a bit buggy (random crashes every now and then, etc.) Take this report with a grain of salt, though, because I have been messing with all kind of KDE libs lately and I have suspicion I may have messed something up :wink:

new Frescobaldi 0.7.8 and new repo afaik: https://launchpad.net/~frescobaldi/+archive/ppa

edit:
quote=frescobaldi mailinglist
Frescobaldi is a LilyPond music score editor for KDE4 (you can run it on any
platform, but you need kdelibs, kdebase, okular from kdegraphics for the PDF
preview and pykde4 from kdebindings).

I am not a programmer, but if I was, I would immediately jump into writing a similar program for Gnome.
Perhaps even a plugin for something like GEdit?

Any programmers who are clever in this? How difficult is something like that?

There are a lot of apps which work nicely on gnome and kde, I think Frescobaldi is one of them

Frescobaldi is a KDE app, I was asking if there is a possibility that a Gnome app or plugin could be developed?

And I thought, it's better to focus on one app, then having two version of apps like qtractor, rosegarden etc.

I figure you're right, but do you have any idea what it's like running Ubuntu? With both KDE3 and KDE4 applications? Nothing looks the same!

Did I ever say I'm not very good with computers? I feel a little sheepish. Ok, I just told my KDE apps to look like the my GTK theme... I never knew you could do that, but now I know... Silly me!
