vkeybd is a virtual keyboard for AWE/OSS, MIDI/OSS and ALSA drivers.  It is 
a simple fake of a MIDI keyboard on X-windows system. Enjoy music with your
mouse and computer keyboard.

Make sure to have a MIDI synth configured in order to play music with this
program - if you use TiMidity++, for example, run it in ALSA server mode
(timidity -iA) before starting vkeybd, then use aconnect to link the ALSA
sequencer input (vkeybd) and output (timidity) ports.

Also, you may want to provide a custom keymap to vkeybd (~/.vkeybdmap)
