I have Audacious, CLementine and Amarok and none will play midi's
 
Hey out there in frustrationville;

I have a number of music files, midi's where most were part of html stationery and others I picked up. I'd like to play themomnce in awhile but on that aspect I have hit a wall. I even tried to get VLC to play tghem, oh its all right with a wav but a midi,that's beneatrh its dignity, yeah right.

I installed all the dependencies for audacious, clementine and amarok; at least I believe I have? So, what can I do to resolve this dilemma?

Install software like Timidity++ or similar.

Just do a search for "midi" in the add/remove software application in your Mageia Control Center.

Should pull up more than you would ever want or need.

To both widgetg and TobiSGD;

I can listgen to my midi's nows throguh TiMidity and the midi softrware from the add & remove site of which six were TiMidity connected.

However there was a slight problem and that had to do with my not being able to play several midi's but just a moment ago while I had TiMidity++ open, I discovered I could geta list ofmidi's by clicking 'Open' which opened the file where my midi's were lolcated. Then a series of double clicks and I had four midi's which I can listen to and now I can see kf I can save these four.

Before when I tried to 'load playlist' I was unsuccessful.

I can play it in vlc such as samples from

but I needed to install the plugin

I chose the vlc-plugin-fluidsynth
