systemd ?

Shall we change the "Daemon mode" section and refer to systemctl to use timidity ? I tried "# systemctl enable timidity", but "systemctl status timidity" tells me that the service is loaded but inactive. What is the recommended way to use MIDI now ? Hellpe (talk) 22:44, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

I had the same problem. Systemd support for timidity has been added but doesn't seem to have been pushed out to the repository. My solution was to compile timidity from source using ABS. After installing the compiled package I could use timidity with systemd ("systemctl enable timidity" and "systemctl start timidity"). Svinto (talk) 11:53, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
I added a short part about how to use timidity with systemd/user in for those who use pulseaudio with it in the daemon section.Reihar (talk) 04:00, 8 December 2013 (UTC)
