Hello James,

Thanks for replying.  There is no such thing as Kmidi anymore. It has 
been merged into Kmid in newer versions of KDE and has been 
discontinued. I can bring up Timidity graphically but there is no way 
that I can see to load a .mid file.

Soooo, I guess that leaves me where I started.  If anyone can tell me 
how to get Kmid working I would be very grateful.

Bob S.
