Hi. I'm pretty sure I got this to work before, but I forgot how.
I wanna use Piano Roll Composer.exe from this website on my Linux PC:
I installed the 64 bit version using Wine, but I don't hear any sound.
The 32Bit version of this app has the same problem.
I can play .mid files in VLC for Linux. But not in Piano Roll Composer in Wine, or any other midi exe app or VLC in Wine.
How can I get sound to play in Piano Roll Composer.exe?
P.S. I'm still using Zorin OS Lite 15.3 (XFCE) https://zorin.com/ Ubuntun Bionic. I tried upgrading to Zorin OS Lite 16, but it won't install.
Here's what I tried on WineHQ forum:
Searched the FAQ. There's nothing there on Mid or midi. I can play mp3's in vlc.exe, so it's not a problem with sound in general.
Searched the the AppDB. PianoRollComposer isn't there.
I tried searching on the WineHQ forum, but it just says you can't search at this time, please wait 360seconds (which is 6minutes)...
Other things i've tried:
I tried a different app: https://www.midieditor.org/
Again, no sound.
There's this webpage:
MIDI - WineHQ Wiki
- ^But I don't know what's going on here.*
I've tried these commands in Terminal (ps I don't really know what's going on here):
sudo apt-get install timidity freepats
sudo apt install timidity
It didn't fix it.
*I noticed that in PulseAudio Volume Control app (Ubuntu), Piano Roll Composer or Wine do not appear under the Playback tab, but other apps do like Firefox or VLC. *
- I did find a test-audio button somewhere in Wine (Winecfg I think?) and it did play a sound tho.*
- I installed (or enabled?) ALSA in Wine. It didn't work.*
Restarting my computer didn't fix this.
I tried installing and opening with PlayOnLinux. Still doesn't play sound
