can't I play a midi file in linux?


I'm using slackware 10.0 on kernel 2.6.7, I can play all kinds of sounds, except midi files?

There is a midi player in kde, but when I select a file in it it doesnt play at all.

How can I play a midi file.

I use ALSA, on the intel8x0 driver

Try installing timidity, that should play midi files. I wish I could play midi with mplayer though, there has to be a way :\
