DENEMO(1) General Commands Manual DENEMO(1)


denemo - gtk+ frontend to GNU Lilypond




This manual page documents briefly the denemo command.
GNU denemo is a GUI musical score editor written in C/gtk+. It is intended primarily as a frontend to GNU Lilypond, but is adaptable to other computer-music-related purposes as well. You can compose, transcribe, arrange, listen to the music and much more.
Denemo itself does not engrave the music for printout - it uses LilyPond which generates beautiful sheet music to the highest publishing standards. Denemo just displays the staffs in a slim and efficient way, so you can enter and edit the music efficiently.
The word Denemo is a corruption of the French word dénouement.
The full documentation for denemo is kept in html format and can be found at /usr/share/doc/denemo-doc/denemo-manual.html after you have installed the denemo-doc package.
