Can you play a MIDI file with the "timidity-interfaces-extra" package?

I've got a Gutsy installation that won't play any MIDI sound at all 
except through that application. (I'm pretty sure that's a meaningful 
clue in a troubleshooting analysis for my machine, but it's not my main 
computer & Hardy's coming so soon that it doesn't seem worth wrestling 

Just a thought. :)
