Store a midi file in your home directory. Open [[Nautilus]] and right click in the midi file. Select "Open with" (other application) or in Properties go to "Open with". Select Timidity in /usr/bin. Appears the text: {{{
 '/usr/bin/timidity'
}}}

Change it to {{{
 '/usr/bin/timidity' -ia
}}}

Now, every time you click in a midi file, timidity is going to play it.

You can use a similar procedure for *.kar (open karaoke) files.

=== Mozilla ===

Go to Edit / Preferences / Advanced and in "System preferences" mark the box "Use the system preferences" (if you have [[Timidity]] installed in your GNOME system).
