I am a music student, who is currently using some of the great open source music notation software availiable for Linux/Ubuntu (Lilypond with Frescobaldi especially).
There is, however, one function that I am still looking for in an open source music notation program, and that is being able to "read" scanned sheet music (or pdf sheet music files). By that I mean translate the images into some kind of editable digital format (MIDI for instance, or ideally, Lilypond code).
I know of only one program that can do this, and that is "Music reader" for Mac (I think they make a windows version as well).
Does anyone know of a program (or method?) that can do this in Ubuntu Linux?
I would much appreciate any ideas or feedback!
All the best,

All optical music recognition programs known to me (SharpEye, Photoscore, ScanScore, Omer, PdfToMusic, ...) run under Windows and/or Mac OS. No Linux/Ubuntu. I guess you should try to use Wine.
