Here's a video on musescore.  I suggest watching the whole 10 part series to see if it will work for your girlfriend.

Canorus might do what you need.  Musescore looks like it might be able to do this too.

Canorus is about 500MB, about 5 minutes to install on a fast connection.

First I searched Freshmeat.net to no avail.

Then I searched on command line using Ubuntu:
apt-cache search midi |grep editor

To install Canorus Ubuntu:
sudo apt-get install canorus

To get notes do draw, I had to "Insert - New Sheet", then "Insert - New Context"

Unfortunately, I can't get any playback to work (not even a basic note).  This is very disheartening.  Perhaps a physical midi device is needed for playback.

I haven't spent much time with MIDI, so I can't speak to the quality of the software.  Hope this helps.

My girlfriend has scribbled out some music on paper. She wants to tap
it into the computer and get nicely-computer-printed notation and a
MIDI file out.

Do any of you do this/have done this? If so, what do you use?

She's currently spent a couple of hours battling Rosegarden and has
nothing good to say about the experience ... and she couldn't even
work out how to get Lilypond to start.
