In particular:
when I launch brahms I get the following error message:

 Brahms couldn't connect aRts sound server.
 Please ensure that artsd is running

, and it won't start. I try again, and this time it starts
but when I import a midi file it is not heard.

Instead, when I launch audacity I get the following error message:
 There was an error initializing the audio i/o layer.
 You will not able to play or record audio.
 Error: Host error.

, then it starts all the same. But when I import a midi file and try to
play it, I get the following:

 Error while opening sound device. Plase check the output device settings 
 and the project sample rate.

Can anybody provide any help?
