First test your audio with a mp3 song and xmms with default OSS output, if
this works step one is done! Next use aplay to play the mp3.
  aplay anything.wav
If you can't hear anything try to play with the mixer "alsamixer" or which i
prefere "qamix".

Now let's do the midi part:
First start it again as midiserver as you did before. Next you have to connect
the sequencer to the midi input, so that the notes know where to go. Start
the sequencer program "rosegarden4" or "muse" which are both very nice. Than
juse "qjackctl" which is a nice graphical frontend for midi and audio routing
trough alsa and connect the midi out of rosegarden4 to the timidity -iA
client. If you play the midi file in the sequencer the notes get routed to
the timidiy and then timidity should perform some music.

good luck

Keine "Software-Patente" in Europa
Wir protestieren gegen "Software-Patente" in Europa.

Die EU-Kommission und der Ministerrat bemühen sich im Verborgenen um
unbegrenzte Patentierbarkeit von Software, wie von internationalen
Großkonzernen und Patentanwälten gefordert. Sie ignorieren dabei die
demokratische Entscheidung des Europa-Parlamentes vom 24. September 2003,
welche die Unterstützung von mehr als 300.000 Bürgern, 2.000.000 Kleinen &
mittelständischen Firmen und Dutzenden von Ökonomen und Wissenschaftlern

Darüber hinaus können Sie uns unterstützen, indem Sie den Aufruf zum Handeln
II des FFII e.V. unterzeichnen.
