       vmpk - Virtual MIDI Piano Keyboard


       vmpk [Standard options...]


       This manual page documents briefly the vmpk program.

       This program has standard Qt programs options.

       Virtual MIDI Piano Keyboard is a MIDI events generator and receiver. It doesn´t produce
       any sound by itself, but can be used to drive a MIDI synthesizer (either hardware or
       software, internal or external). You can use the computer´s keyboard to play MIDI notes,
       and also the mouse. You can use the Virtual MIDI Piano Keyboard to display the played MIDI
       notes from another instrument or MIDI file player.


           sets the application GUI style. Possible values are motif, windows, and platinum. If
           you compiled Qt with additional styles or have additional styles as plugins these will
           be available to the -style command line option

           sets the application styleSheet. The value must be a path to a file that contains the
           Style Sheet. Note: Relative URLs in the Style Sheet file are relative to the Style
           Sheet file´s path.

           restores the application from an earlier session.

           prints debug message at the end about number of widgets left undestroyed and maximum
           number of widgets existed at the same time

           sets the application´s layout direction to Qt::RightToLeft

           sets the backend to be used for on-screen widgets and QPixmaps. Available options are
           raster and opengl.

       -display display
           sets the X display (default is $DISPLAY).

       -geometry geometry
           sets the client geometry of the first window that is shown.

       -fn|-font font
           defines the application font. The font should be specified using an X logical font

       -bg|-background color
           sets the default background color and an application palette (light and dark shades
           are calculated).

       -fg|-foreground color
           sets the default foreground color.

       -btn|-button color
           sets the default button color.

       -name name
           sets the application name.

       -title title
           sets the application title.

       -visual TrueColor
           forces the application to use a TrueColor visual on an 8-bit display.

       -ncols count
           limits the number of colors allocated in the color cube on an 8-bit display, if the
           application is using the QApplication::ManyColor color specification. If count is 216
           then a 6x6x6 color cube is used (i.e. 6 levels of red, 6 of green, and 6 of blue); for
           other values, a cube approximately proportional to a 2x3x1 cube is used.

           causes the application to install a private color map on an 8-bit display.

           sets the input method server (equivalent to setting the XMODIFIERS environment

           defines how the input is inserted into the given widget, e.g., onTheSpot makes the
           input appear directly in the widget, while overTheSpot makes the input appear in a box
           floating over the widget and is not inserted until the editing is done.
