Muse Hub on Fedora(Nobara) and/or other Linux distros

• marras 20, 2022 - 11:36

Hello all!
Is there a way to install Muse Hub (and Muse Sounds) on Fedora(Nobara)?
Nobara should just be Fedora with some tweaks i.e. the dnf repos are available
I tried using alien, but that misses dependencies.

Any help appreciated!


As I understand it, the source for MuseScore is on Github... To the extent I've "poked around" Github, I don't think I've ever seen source for MuseHub -- which is something of a curiosity, I guess. You might want to approach developers on Github to ask if there is source for MuseHub, such that you could build it (if you're so inclined to go that route) for your Fedora platform.

I have managed to successfully install Muse Hub on Fedora 37 with alien and rpmrebuild. I converted it to RPM with sudo alien --to-rpm --scripts Muse_Hub.deb, then used rpmrebuild -pe muse-hub- to remove the conflicting files the rpm command complained about when I tried to install the package from the %files section in the spec file. Finally, I installed it with sudo rpm -i --nodeps ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/muse-hub- Bear in mind the generated RPM's filename may differ for you.

The --nodeps argument was necessary because it complained about a missing file from lttng-ust even though I have the package installed and the file exists. After installing, the muse-hub service should be enabled with systemctl enable muse-hub and then systemctl start muse-hub. The service needs to be running in order to use Muse Sounds in MuseScore, for instance.

You might be not removing the '/usr/bin' and '/usr/lib' lines from the spec file when running the rpmrebuild command. See my previous comment.

I have tried attaching my RPM, but I guess it's probably too big. Anyway if Muse Hub updates in the future you might still need to build a new RPM, and you don't want to rely on some random person on the internet making unofficial packages in a dodgy way.

Thank you so much! My attempt had been bugging out, and couldn't update the few sounds I had managed to install. Now it's working perfectly smoothly.
Both with this package and my previous setup, only the MuseScore appimage can detect the sounds, and not the flathub flatpak. Has this been hour experience too?

In reply to by Max Pearce Basman

Problem with flatpak packages should be fixed by the package maintainer.
(i guess a problem with the musesampler library. What does Diagnostics->MuseSampler->Check Muse Sampler give you?)

Do you guys know that linux users do not need to use the complete insecure Musehub?
There is even a rpm package.
Works perfectly.

I'm a fedora user and it'd be interesting to have a way to install muse-hub on Fedora without having to do any kind of secondary efforts to do so. I agree that it can be a Flatpak or RPM package or any other agnostic way to install to any linux distro.
