My old laptop died and when setting up my new (to me) one I decided to
go straight to Fedora 9. Which has been good up to the point I decided
to connect my Oxygen8 keyboard. I discovered to my joy that
midisport-firmware is now packaged for Fedora so installed it.
Interestingly the current version (1.2) doesn't mention the need to
provide the actual firmware as the 0.X version did. Anyway I plug in
the keyboard and it appears to initialise. But it doesn't appear
anywhere. My normal way of connecting it is via the qjackctl "connect"
window. But it isn't there. All I see in /var/log/messages is:
Jul 6 11:10:46 wagner kernel: hub 1-0:1.0: unable to enumerate USB device on port 3
Jul 6 11:10:47 wagner kernel: usb 3-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 4
Jul 6 11:10:47 wagner kernel: usb 3-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
Jul 6 11:10:47 wagner kernel: usb 3-1: New USB device found, idVendor=0763, idProduct=1014
Jul 6 11:10:47 wagner kernel: usb 3-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=0, Product=0, SerialNumber=0
sometimes accompanied by:
Jul 6 11:11:18 wagner pulseaudio: module-alsa-sink.c: Error opening PCM device front:0: Device or resource busy
Jul 6 11:17:12 wagner pulseaudio: module-alsa-sink.c: Error opening PCM device front:0: Device or resource busy
Are the pulseaudio errors relevant?
Do you still need the *.SYS firmware blobs with midisport-firmware 1.2?
I tried manually installing "ye olde" midisport-firmware 0.2 with the
firmware blobs but that didn't work either :-(
Hoping someone out there knows the answer (I also have a Midisport 4x4
and I'm really hoping to have both working soon).
