Often enough it happens that I have to play some midi-files. Unfortunately, my Fedora system never was and still is not ready for midi out of the box. This might partially be due to the fact that I have a on-board soundcard with no own wave table synthesizer.
Anyway, one way to solve the problem is to use timidity++ as a an ALSA midi synthesizer. This can be done with the command:
Timidity now runs in the background as a “midi sound daemon”. Afterwards, start your midi program (like kmid) and choose the new ALSA timidity devices as output. Everything should work now.
