I would like to document a problem I had with Rosegarden: from 2 laptops I
was receiving sound, but from my desktop no sound emerged. Michael solved
the problem for me and I would like to document it.
Step 1: fire up Qsynth.
Step 2: in a terminal use: pmidi -p 128:0 fileName.mid
Use whatever port is appropriate and whatever file name. Pmidi is nice
little program which has the advantage of being much simpler than
Rosegarden. It checks if your hardware is OK or not. On my desktop I could
hear sound under pmidi but not under Rosegarden, but I had verification that
my hardware was OK.
On Rosegarden I could see the flashing green "LED" on Qsynth so I had
positive verification that Rosegarden was indeed feeding the information to
Qsynth - just no sound was coming out. I knew only Michael could help so I
After a couple of rounds Michael guessed that perhaps JACK is stealing away
the hardware from Qsynth. To test he suggested purposely messing up the
script which activates JACK. I went into the file
~/.jackdrc and at the beginning of the file placed the word "garbage". This
would prevent Rosegarden from starting it. It worked like a charm. Suddenly
I began to hear sound and can use my desktop computer as well.
Thanks to Michael for getting me up and running,
