Project crashing MusE when loading
Okay, I see, at that time Ubuntu had an old version of MusE, they have rectified it in recent versions.

There is a choice (there's always a difficult choice).

1. Install from a third party ubuntu repository, PPA.
this is the recommended way if you want most bang for the buck.
The repository <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m -->
Gives you lots of recent audio software including the latest released MusE (2.1.2)
I wish I could wholehartedly recommend this as it should be the final solution but I have to note that I have had some trouble with adding audio software from PPAs. The linux-audio world is probably just a bit on the complex side.

What you need to are the following commands.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kxstudio-team/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade (which should bring in the new muse version along with new versions of jack etc )

2. Install from source.
This gives you ultimate control and you can install the bleeding edge version of MusE.
Appart from possibly installing a bunch of development tools that you might not need later it should interfere with your current installation very little.
Of the top of my head I think these are the commands needed.

# To get dependencies for building:
sudo apt-get install build-essential dssi-dev libfluidsynth-dev libsndfile1-dev libsamplerate0-dev uuid-dev libasound2-dev libqt4-dev cmake git

# To get recent source code:
git clone muse_source
cd muse_source/muse2/
# it should now build everything which takes a while, if there are errors report it back here.
cd build
sudo make install

This build is installed in /usr/local/bin and can coexist with the already installed muse. I recommend uninstalling the muse package to avoid confusion.

So. Try one or the other, or both <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->
Oh, the PPA has another benefit, it is built with support for windows VST(i) plugins so it is actually possible to use some VSTs (not all).

So, all I can think of at the moment. Have fun!
