Hello,

Having the alsa use flag set globally in my make.conf, I had never realized that media-gfx/gimp honors it.
In the process of reviewing my use flag settings for each individual package, I discovered that. 8O
What on earth TheGimp has to do with Alsa ?

If everybody already knew that... then sorry for the noise :oops: , however, for all those who, like me, have just landed on the Mars planet then... have a look to the answer :

http://www.gimp.org/unix/howtos/gimp-midi.html

Crazy indeed ! TerriblyFantastic !

Well... OK... Useless ! But... isn't art useless per se ?

Thank you! I had always wondered wtf gimp [alsa] did, but never wondered hard enough to find out.
Somehow I think it's less than ten people that actually use that, or have even used it once. :P

I guess I better start working on a MIDI interface to X11 events, so all the window managers can keep up and get an alsa flag too.

Wait! No! A twitter use flag to tweet every gimp action, yeah, that's the ticket!

How do you define useful? Toward what use or end should we strive? Is there anything that is truly useful, and if so, what makes it useful?

Splendid ! Instead of hearing the last note of a Missa Solemnis when you close a window, you would actually play the last note of a Missa Solemnis in order to close a window ! 8)

Don't forget the other way around too. Tweets triggering gimp actions. 8)

Well, OK, it seems I let some kind of platitude escape... :oops:
As, of course, everything is strictly speaking useless-per-se. Things can only be useful-for-me and or useful-for-you. => You or I make things useful or not.

Hm, a gentoo-chat USE flag to post "Keet clicked his mouse" every time I click my mouse. I think that people would find that useful and informative.

This midi useflag (or the interface Gimp is providing) does sound interesting. If you have a (musical) keyboard attached to your computer, why not use its keys as shortcuts?
