MIDI Players and Editors for Linux

I’m looking for a MIDI editor that shows and edits musical score notation. Still not satisfied. There are others at freshmeat under Multimedia--> Sound/Audio --> MIDI.

This is Ubuntu Linux 8.04.

KDE MIDI player

minimal interface MIDI player

won’t play big symphony files—maybe just chokes on big instrument numbers

Jazz++

MIDI sequencer with Motif interface

Latest version has complicated but not completely accurate instructions.

Requires lots of external tools. Got stuck on tex2rtf (although I have latex2rtf.) Why does it require this to build the binary?

RoseGarden4

MIDI sequencer/editor

pretty interface: now KDE

Waits for a long time for “Sequencer to come up”, then presents a hung interface.

Solution: modprobe snd_seq.

put snd_seq in /etc/modules. Then Rosegarden can start.

But still no sound!
