Playing of midi files, I haven't tested connecting a midi device
What does not
As others have already said, the fonts aren't right but this doesn't matter.
What was not tested
As said, need to install timidity, or you won't get any sound and then you need to start timidity (or restart linux, the install adds it to /etc/init.d) you can start it with the following command timidity -iA

First make sure you have Timidity installed on your computer. It's a native application that plays the midi output from the game. On Ubuntu and other Debian based systems you can install Timidity by running the following command:
sudo apt-get install timidity
Start the game and choose TiMidity port 1 to be the output device.
Synthesia tries to fix a bug in windows sound systems by decreasing the master sound volume when closing the game. On Wine Synthesia will turn the sound volume to 0%. This feature can be disabled by making the following registry change to the settings of the game:
"Disable Auto Volume"="1"
The game comes with two renderers: the OpenGL one and the Direct X one. Both are working perfectly under wine, but Direct X needs some tweaking.
If you want to use the OpenGL renderer add the following registry entries:
If you want to use the Direct X you must first install the Direct X to your Wine installation. I don't tell here how to do it, because the OpenGL way is so much easier.
