You can use Timidity to easily play MIDI and ?karaoke files in Linux and Mozilla.

ALSA

Gnome

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 Advance and in "System preferences" mark the box "Use the system preferences" (if you have ?timidity installed in your Gnome system).
