I have to spend time figuring this out now. I gather one way or another I can
do it within 30 minutes.
I am focused only connecting it using ALSA. If you are curious see ifone of
your linux repos has VMPK. Launch it, File > Midi Controllers > (drop-down)
under ALSA > input Midi Controllers.
This is proper designed GUI and why GUIs exist. This is how most software GUI
versions on linux work and are designed. GUI are supposed to provide easy
For example, I connected the midi controller, boot VMPK, and yes of course
under ALSA, the app is going to see the controller and allow me to select.
Simple, Easy, done, worked. #1 I explained this off-the-bat.
Now in Yoshimi, you can go into Settings > ALSA (this is the same section
essentail as VMPK) and you'll see a text field to specify midi controller. It's
value is default. There is no drop-down/recognition on the GUI form, which
honestly, there simply should be.
So The other attacking, condescending comments toward me had NOTHING to with
lack of my own understanding, it was there lack of simple comprehension of *NIX
systems or built in reference to proper GUI and utility.
Therefor my focus is geared towards only finding out if I CAN? specify a value
with the actual YOSHIMI SETTINGS to specify the midi controller, similar to
VMPK and which is status quo 1001% and expected give the Settings > ALSA tab
and form field.
Now I have to cease responseand just figure it out and outline the best methods
to accomplish the task of connecting a simple midi controller, hopefully trying
to not use and "external alsa gui" package.

just a simple question:
is JACK running along with Yoshimi?

I am sorry Will. I am personally stopping I had no intent to interact in
rude manner. You can read my thread opened and clearly see the scenario I
outlined, the issues, and my intent.
I am simply going to figure it out now. Hopefully, I can simply utilize and
point Yoshimi to use the midi controller via Settings > ALSA > Also Midi
Source setting. Obviously.
If I have to use an external package GUI as mentioned by Diego, then I guess
that may be the only option.
In any case I will reply with a simple instruction of how others can simply
and painlessly do it with exact instruction.

Can we have an end to 'attitudes'?
First time I've ever seen it on the Yoshimi list, and I hope it's the last.
As the person who wrote the code for Yoshimi's ALSA MIDI selection I'll come
back to this after I've made myself a hot drink

Say you have a poem and I have a tune.
Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.
