Installing M-Audio Midisport 2x2 : I just follow this How-to
(In short) :

sudo -i
cd /tmp

# then get firmware from the 'usbmidi' package

# unpack
tar xvzf usbmidi-20040829.tar.gz

# to simplify the instructions copy the firmware to /etc/firmware
mkdir /etc/firmware
cp usbmidi-20040829/testing/MidiSport/ezusbmidi1x1.ihx /etc/firmware/

# install fxload if not yet installed
apt-get install fxload

# find out what bus and device id the midisport has

# load the firmware (change "003" with your bus number and "004" with your device number , found from lsusb
fxload -I /etc/firmware/ezusbmidi1x1.ihx -D /proc/bus/usb/003/004

On the page I also found a script for loading the midisport .

With "Alacarte menu editor" I added a new menu-item with the command "sudo /usr/local/bin/midisportsetup" set to open up in a terminal.

I also added one with the command "sudo modprobe snd-seq-midi" that I need to make Alsa find the /dev/snd/seq .

... thanks a lot Yaaarrrgg !
