There are some things here..

>> tuxguitar cant to see in the sound configuration my Midi Port.

The first question is, is timidity running as daemon ?

exec this on a terminal:
aconnect -o

Do you see it ?

If yes, so the second question is.. do you have TuxGuitar-alsa installed ??
( if you installed tuxguitar from ubuntu repositories, tuxguitar-alsa is in a different package, so you need to install it to see alsa ports )

>> I tried to set on kcontrol (set your midi device)

i don't have idea about kcontrol, so can't help here.


>> using ate shell mode $timidity file.mid or $timidity -ia file.mid works fine.

Yes but... you are running timidity as standalone, not as an ALSA midi port.

to test timidity as alsa port with a .mid file.
you could do this:

aplaymidi --port 128:0 YourFile.mid

warning, i assume timidity is loaded on port 128:0 ( see the right ports with aconnect -o )
