ABC software for linux on eee pc?

Is there any ABC software that will convert and display notation on an eee pc using linux?

I’m not a programmer, so something with a friendly interface would be nice, if it exists.

Thanks.

I actually meant software to install on the eee pc.

Thanks.

On Linux, I use “abc2ps” to typeset the dots and “gv” to view/print--works great, and they’re free.

If you use Debian or a Debian-like distro (read Ubuntu) the package is called now abcm2ps. From the Debian site:
“This program is a vastly improved spin-off from Michael Methfessel’s abc2ps, which is no longer supplied as part of Debian. In particular, it contains a lot of extensions to help typeset classical music.”
It works really well. Actually, abcm2ps is the backend used by concertina.net abc converter.
