Please can you give me instructions on how to be able to play a midi file in Pardus 2008?
Using information given in this forum, I have:
1. Installed Timidity
2. Started the service in Tasma-System-Uncheck 'List servers only'.
3.Checked 'Run on Startup'.
4. Restarted my Dell Inspiron 1525.
5. In Tasma-Sound & Multimedia-Sound System-Hardware tab, I do not have an option of Timidity in the midi section, Kmid opens the file, reads lyrics, but no sound. I have the message 'midi devices - not enabled in config', but I do not know how to proceed further (newcomer to Pardus).

Please can anyone help me, as midi is important to me?

Hi Andreas,
Thank you for getting back to me, that is the thread I referred to - I followed the instructions there, leading to my question, as it does not work for me.

#Go to TASMA>System>Service Manager then start timidity
Then go to Sound System settings in TASMA and choose timidity as midi device#

I do not have the option to choose timidity as the midi device. Timidity is started.
Kmid will not give any sound. How do I configure Pardus to enable output please?

This is a recently solved bug in Timidity service script. The fix will be in next updates...

If you want to get the fix immediately, type these commands in programs>system>console:
sudo pisi bi http://svn.pardus.org.tr/pardus/devel/applications/multimedia/timidity/pspec.xml
sudo pisi it timidity*.pisi

Hi jnmbk,

Thank you very much for replying, and after applying your supplied code into a terminal, I am very pleased to report that I am now able to play midi files on my machine, a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop.  Smiley
My congratulations and thanks go out to all involved in solving the bug, best wishes and thanks again from here in the UK.
