I want to develop a MIDI application, and I know that gst-plugins-bad-free includes wildmidi. After trying: pkcon install gst-plugins-bad-free I receive: Fatal error: gst-plugins-bad-0.10.23+0.20140130.0-10.7.2.jolla.armv7hl obsoletes gst-plugins-bad-free < 0.10.23+0.20140130.0 provided by gst-plugins-bad-free-0.10.23+git1-1.2.2.armv7hl

How can I install a newer version of gst-plugins-bad-free , or directly wildmidi, or libwildmidi ?

What about Timidity? It's also in gst-plugins-bad. Albeit WildMIDI, being a sort of a "light" alternative to Timidity, would fit better.

Any MIDI app will need the ALSA sequencer device. Unfortunately it is currently not included in Sailfish. It would normally appear as a kernel module named snd_seq or similar. Of course, it can be compiled for Sailfish. I'm actually trying to do just that, because I want FluidSynth (works, except there is no /dev/snd/seq yet).

@Camil B: Did you try in the end? Is it possible to send MIDI with Sailfish?

@jpelfrene: I think I gave up after a while, due to lack of time. I don't remember if there was any technical obstacle, so it might have worked in the end...
