I've been working on a personal project which involves parsing a binary stream of midi data from a controller. The way I had been doing it was reading from
/dev/dmmidi1. Over the weekend I upgraded from Kubuntu 12.04 to Kubuntu 14.04. Now, when I plug in my midi controller, there are no device files that look like ones that would correspond to my controller.
When I run
aplaymidi -l, the output shows the device that I expect. Why am I not seeing device files?
