I am a music student looking for software that can convert midi files to sheet music. Are there any programs for Ubuntu like the Windows programs Notation Musician or MidiNotate Player?

There is the package abcmidi that provides the application midi2abc, capable of converting midi files to abc file.

Install via the software center

abc files can be easily converted to something printable with abcm2ps from the package of the same name.

Rosegarden is mainly a full blown MIDI sequencer but it also comes with a quite professional notation feature to convert MIDI data to scores:

Install via the software center

Depending on your needs in case you only need a small piece of MIDI to transform it to scores this may be overkill, but if you need to edit these files or start composing you may need one or the other of it's additional features.
