Follow-up Comment #1, bug#64969 (group denemo):

Thank you for taking the time to write up you experiences.
The slow startup problem is particularly acute on first use of Denemo, because
I think the newer versions of Guile force a compilation to bytecode of all the
Scheme code that may or may not actually get used.
This could be fixed by shipping the bytecode with the program.
As it is, the initialisation of the GUI is held up - it might be possible to
perform it before the Guile starts up so as to provide a splash screen/loading

The flood of messages from ALSA lib is IMHO a bug in that library - libraries
should not create noise like this, they should use error codes etc to indicate
their displeasure.

Importing from LilyPond is very limited, the flood of debug code is a
reflection of the fact that it is rather unfinished. More practical is the
command for pasting Notes in LilyPond syntax using the command:

Command: Paste LilyPond notes
Paste LilyPond notes from the text clipboard
This will import music written as LilyPond syntax
You open the LilyPond file in a texteditor, copy the stretch of notes
(control-c command in your texteditor usually) and then use this command.
Location: Main Menu ▶ Edit
Internal Name: PasteClipboard

It will be worth keeping this bug report open in the hope that someone will
volunteer to tackle some of these issues.
