Title: NWC on Ubuntu
Post by: Guido van Harten on 2017-01-27 09:46 pm
I am trying to use NWC 2.75 onto Ubuntu 16.04 using Wine 2.0. It is running, but I can not hear my music.
Who can help me?

Regards,
Guido

Did you install a software synth?
(Hai installato un qualche sintetizzatore software? Non credo che Ubuntu ne abbia uno nativo, visto che, sic!, tendono a considerare il MIDI un formato obsoleto  ;) )

Guido,

As Flurmy mentioned, you must first have a functioning MIDI device.
Timidity did the trick for me some years ago.
When that was working, I simply pointed NWC to this device in its Midi options.

I didn't use Ubuntu very often and after some kind of upgrade my working configuration was lost and I didn't repair it any more. Maybe today better alternatives to Timidity exist, but I don't know.
