OK, I'll have a look at it. Thanks for the pointers.

I tried running "pmidi -l" on my laptop, and get this:

lewis at linux-6xfc:~/squeak> pmidi -l
 Port     Client name                       Port name
 14:0     Midi Through                      Midi Through Port-0

So that probably means I have a midi device on my sound card. I guess
that should be all I need to test the plugin, right?
