Remarks about the Linux version of Serenade.
Serenade runs on PC's with an i386 processor, it does not run an ARM processors like the Raspberry Pi.
There is no installer for the Linux version. Just unpack the .tag.gz file and execute Serenade. For Ubuntu there is a desktop file included. Edit it to change the path of the exec, path and icon parameter to the folder where you unpacked Serenade and copy it to your desktop folder.
The JmSynth is not included in the Linux version. If you need a software synthesizer, you may try Qsynth.
The option to use computerkeyboard keys to play notes in the Main Sequencer window is not included in the Linux version.
The built-in help function leads to the website. When not connected to the internet you can also browse the files in the help folder, start with index.htm.
Serenade uses ALSA for MIDI connections. This is already included in Linux distributions like Ubuntu and Debian. But if you don see any available MIDI ports in the preference window then you need to install ALSA.
If the menu is not visible then change the Ubuntu settings to display the menu in the application window instead of in the bar at the top of the screen.
