I've been away from the list for a while, so I haven't seen any of your posts, but I'll see if I have
the old threads archived. I'm surprised though, the M-audio ozone "just worked" for me, I'm using 7.10.
What kind of problems were you having? I just bought a generic 1x midi-usb interface on Ebay. Is there
an issue with midi communication over the USB port?
Yes, most Ozone keyboards work better than the sub-version designated "Academic" on the front panel. That's why the patch was written especially for it.
There is a six-page thread in Ubuntu Forums about trying to get the M-Audio Ozone to work; most people have not had it "just work' with Ubuntu.* Page 5 and 6* detail how the extensive tweaks did not work with my particular version.* Then I took the Ozone and my computer to the January GSLUG (Greater Seattle LUG) meeting, and two guys discovered the patch online.* It was the FIRST TIME I ever saw any MIDI working with it; the guy was using aconnect with TiMIdity in Slackware.* He did not have JACK installed.
These guys then helped me compile and install a patched kernel, but I have not been able to get it to boot. The original kernel works fine, and I use the Ozone as the default sound card.* Everything will play audio through it except Rosegarden, but MIDI is not recognized.
For fun, here's a link to that Ubuntu Forums thread:
