Title: Add init script for timidity or edit wrapper script for

openSUSE-11.3: New
Requester: Neutral

Requested by: Michal Seben (mseben)

problem :
if I want start tuxguitar with soft midi support I need at first start
timidity by hand and after then I can start tuxguitar
posible solutions :
* add init script for timidity - so timidity could be running whole
time (could be in conflict with pulseaudio)
* edit tuxguitar wrapper script - so timidity is started automaticaly
with tuxguitar from wrapper (maybe we could avoid conflict with
pulseadio using pasuspender)

Takashi, what do you think ? I will do this job, I want only know if
this idea isn't foolish ...

I don't mind to have it. Though, one concern is that a system daemon
may have a problem with a user-based sound server like PulseAudio,
because the daemon already uses and blocks the sound device.

Timidity will be useful when we work with music scorewriter
