I was looking for a really good notation and compositioning tool for a
while, but most of the ones I tested were crap :D
Rosegarden really looks good, but before getting it, I'd like to know, if
it's possible to print from the notation editor (yes on paper...:)

Yes and no. The situation's not as good as we'd like it to be yet.
There is a Print function on the File menu, but it doesn't work well=20
enough to be any use for anything yet. It should get sorted out=20
before too long, as it's quite an important feature, although the=20
quality will probably never be truly fantastic.
Alternatively, you can export Lilypond files and run them through=20
Lilypond (for example Lilypond includes an ly2pdf script that will=20
simply turn the .ly file that Rosegarden generates into a printable=20
pdf). This should produce readable output straightforwardly, or=20
excellent output if you really want it and are prepared to learn=20
enough about Lilypond to edit the Lilypond file after generation.
It isn't yet possible to invoke a single Rosegarden menu command to=20
run Lilypond and print the results, although there's an open feature=20
request asking for this to be added and there's a reasonable chance=20
it will be.
