I finally got my MIDI collection to play
I'm so happy!--after possibly three years of trying on and off, I am have gotten my MIDI collection to play in Linux for the first time. (This is somewhat important because I'm an avid collector of MIDI files, and this had been my biggest source of disappointment at Linux.)
The program that worked is Timidity. (Which is odd, because the last time I tried it, it didn't work. That might have been on another computer, though.) Before that, I thought KMid was the best shot, but it has never played them with any audio. Neither did any of the few other MIDI programs I tried. So if you need a MIDI player, Timidity is probably the most likely to work. It's a slightly odd program, because it doesn't bother making an entry in my Multimedia submenu, and because it runs completely invisibly, not even appearing on the right of the panel. But it plays my MIDIs, so I don't mind.
