Block on wubi boot
anybody with the same issue? any idea?
I googled the search string ""Starting TiMidity++ ALSA midi emulation fails"
"I had exactly the same problem. The trouble was not with Timidity, but right after that - it was problem with display manager gdm.
I booted to Ubuntu in recovery mode (and with old kernel - 2.6.31-22-generic) and run the program for selecting display manager:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm
There I selected lightdm instead of gdm.
Thank you. This worked for me. Actually, lightdm was selected for me, and I changed it to gdm and it worked. So, I guess the point is to try both. Also the gist of this thread is that the problem is NOT Timidity++. That is just the last message before the display manager is supposed to launch. If you look at the message, it says that Timidity started OK. It's the *next* thing in the boot sequence, which is, apparently, the display manager.
BTW, I did not need recovery mode, I just did ctrl-alt-F1 to get to a terminal and entered the command. Then rebooted.
