cant input notes with midi keyboard

• Nov 28, 2021 - 11:08

Dell xps13
Ubuntu 20.04
Musescore 3.6.2
Alesis Q49 usb keyboard
I can't get musescore to respond to note entry via the Q49. I can enter notes through either the qwerty or virtual keyboards. I tried using Jack in case that was the problem - set i/o to Jack - but that didn't seem to help. I'm not a Jack expert, so maybe I didn't make the connections properly.
Preferences -> Note input is set to enable-midi-input which is the default apparently.
I connected the keyboard before starting Musescore.
Qsynth/Jack responds to the keyboard correctly so it's not likely to be the keyboard causing the problem.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
