Listed and selected as the "MIDI output system device".

Done.  All tracks unmuted (just to be sure);  no output from MIDI jack.

I use an LED soldered to a DIN-5 socket as a tester, and aplaymidi
produces the expected type of LED blinking if I use it to "play" a
MIDI file.  This confirms to me (I believe) that both the hardware and
the OS level support are functioning properly.  If there's something
else I can do to provide additional confirmation whether that's true,
I hope someone will suggest it.

I'm seriously wondering about the fact that Rosegarden does not show up in
JACK's MIDI "readable clients / output ports" list, and would appreciate
confirmation of whether I should be expecting to see it listed there.
