You don't get sound out of Rosegarden.  Rosegarden doesn't make sounds.  Rosegarden sends signals to JACK, which then routes those signals to wherever you have told JACK to route them.  Make sure you have JACK running.  You then have to use JACK to route Rosegarden's OUTPUT into the INPUT of the synth.  Then route the OUTPUT of the synth into your system output (speakers).

Or you can try the Rosegarden for Windows alpha.  You don't have to mess around with any of that; it just works.

Hi, I am probably overlooking something, but I am unable to get any sound out of rosegarden. I have mint11 (probably the version of rg that goes along with that), and have a ton of compositions that I am unable to use for their various purposes (I teach)... anyhow, I have tried to use timidity, fluidsynth, zynaddsubfx, and some others, but nothing creates any sound...  How do I go about trying to fix this? (Yes, I have scoured the manual, etc).... any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!
