We present a recent port of the OpenMusic computer-aided composition environment to Linux. The text gives a brief presentation of OpenMusic and typical use-cases of the environment. We also present a short history of its development, and mention previous attempts at porting it to Linux. The main technical challenges involved with developing the current Linux port are discussed, as well as solutions to these. We end the paper by outlining some possible areas for future work.
