I have actually always had a lot of trouble getting kmid to work (on Mandrake 
as well as Ubuntu).  I had it working at one time under Warty by following a 
HOWTO someone on the foroms had written, but as soon as I upgraded to Hoary, 
it stopped working again.  Eventually, I just installed Timidity++ with the 
Ultimate soundfonts some nice fellow put together, and I use that to play my 
midi files.  I think the sound quality is a little nicer that way, though it 
is less integrated into the desktop.

If you find a way to get kmid working, I would be happy to hear the
