Hello !
It's been quite a long time since I have posted over here.
Anyway, is there a way (and forgive me if I'm asking for something that is well known), to be aware of the job that is in progress with fresco, if a new version is out, and so on ? Some kind of a roadmap for the first part of the question, and some kind of a rss feed for the second ?

I've missed two versions of fresco, and I'm sure that the french po file might need an update ;-) !
I'm ready to maintain it when I have time. I guess that I could get a working copy of the svn or whatever version control software you're using, but this wouldn't assure me of the work in progress, unless syncing often, which I can't do ecause of a lack of free time...
As always, thanks a lot for the job you've done with fresco, and keep going, I continue to use it as often as I can ! - Oct 19 2009
Well, you're welcome. I've proposed my help in a previous post, and I tend to do what I said, and to say what I'll do. If I hadn't had the will and time, I wouldn't have proposed myself.
Anyway, I think that the way I did it was not the better way to do it.
I haven't searched a lot, but how can I fetch the svn tree and commit it when the fr.po file is updated ?
Was the use of lokalize a good idea ?
I know that my translation can be somehow hasardous for some words (I'm currently thinking of "Pitch" for example) so if someone want to correct my mistakes, he is welcome ! - Jun 22 2009
Hello !
I've worked a little on the fr.po file, but I don't know where to upload it. So, here is a link pointing to my few corrections to the file : http://omploader.org/vMXY3YQ
I hope this will help. - Jun 22 2009
Oups, forget it. Bad reload in firefox. Sorry. - Jun 10 2009
Hello !
I've just updated to the latest version, and I see that there is still a "bug", and I just wondered if you were aware of this. Let me explain.
You open frescobaldi, edit a file, pass it to lilypond, and then you see the generated pdf, and you can play it with timidity. That's great. So, you're happy with your job and quit frescobaldi.
A few minutes later, you think of something about your job, so you just re-launch frescobaldi, re-open your file. At this point, you see the pdf, but can't listen to your midi file despide you haven't changed anything yet.
Is is a normal behaviour ? I think that one should be abble to listen to his midi file, if one present when he opens the .ly file and the .midi file exists.

The "Quick insert" bar is quite easy to use, but could you add more items or another tab, so as to add more signs (I'm thinking of linked notes, for example). Maybe that these could act on a selected group.

What do you think of these few ideas ?
Anyway, continue your job, because it *is* a great app !

P.S. Do you have a translator that makes french translations ? If not, I can help to do that. - Jun 10 2009

ARf, thanks for your answer. I already knew all this to do a midi file and how to play it. But since your app is a frontend to lilypond, I thought of something more "sexy" !
After all, you can write a .ly file with vim, get a pdf from it with lilypond and view it with okular. I hope you won't mistake my words, because I really love your app, and just thought to give you a good idea.
Thanks once again for all ! - Mar 06 2009
Since I've installed fresco this morning, I think that I used the right ebuild. Thanks for your appreciated help !

Now on, about your soft. Is it in the todo list to add the ability to hear the generated score using timidity or any soft that can read midi ? - Mar 06 2009
I've just tested your ebuild. It just simply works !
Here are the steps I did :
created a frescobaldi directory under /usr/portage/media-sound
I then put the content of your ebuild in a file named frescobaldi-0.7.7.ebuild in this directory.
At this point I ran :
$ ebuild frescobaldi-0.7.7 manifest

I then created a file under /etc/portage/package.keywords named frescobaldi with a simple line : media-sound/frescobaldi

The emerge frescobaldi went then fine and I can now use this great app !
Thanks a lot for your help ! - Mar 06 2009
Since I'd really love to test frescobaldi, I could be the tester as far as you guide me through the steps needed to create such an ebuild. I could test it on my free time and/or at work, and try to find somethings wrong if I encounter any, but I don't know where to start to write an ebuild. Please, tell me me if this could be a good solution (and forgive my poor english, I'm french). - Mar 04 2009
Hi !
This app seems exactly what I've been waiting for for a long time, but there doesn't seem to ba any ebuild for, so I can't even test it.
Would someone over here be kind enough to add it to the main portage tree or at least to an overlay ? - Mar 04 2009
