I based my installation of NWC on the instructions provided by Connor using Linpus Linux Lite, March 30 2009. Some simplification of the instructions. Here's what I did:
This is where I deviate from Connor's instructions...
So, in my installation at least, NWC midi sound is working natively in Ubuntu without any extra processes after the initial set up noted above.
I have created new NWC music files and exported these as MIDI.
In my testing so far, there are no problems with NWC functionality.
What does not
There is the double tabbing bug, 11056. Workaround by positioning cursor using mouse.
Otherwise no other problems.
What was not tested
I have not tested MIDI input.
I am running this in Ubuntu 9.04 on a Dell Inspiron 6400, BIOS A16, 2GB RAM. Some initial setup (see above), but very easy. My Ubuntu 9.04 jaunty install already had ALSA. I just added the "alsa-oss" (version 1.0.17-1) and "timidity" (2.13.2-20ubuntu3) packages. See above for step-by-step.
