How to setup midi input?

view full story

http://askubuntu.com – I have Ubuntu 12.04 and want to setup a M-Audio Axiom 49. I have tried to read up on jackd1 / jackdmp /jackd2 / qjackctl and whatnot, but havent gotten any sound from the keyboard yet. A long time ago i managed to get sound from it using rosegarden and qjackctl, but not anymore. I have timidity installed and can play midi audio with it. In rosegarden there are no available midi input devices when the keyboard is plugged in and turned on. In qjackctls connections window in the midi tab there are no "readable clients", even when running vkeybd and zynaddsubfx and having my keyboard plugged (HowTos)
