Ok. Does the usb midi keyboard otherwise work. For example, can you use it 
with ZynAddSubFx. You need to just connect the keyboard to ZynAddSubFx in 
qjackctl's midi connections if your using Etch or Lenny.

Have you tried with an earlier kernel, just in case you have made some error 
with your, roll your own one?

btw. Which Debian version are you using?

If you are using KDE, you can use Kmid to check out if the midi is working.

I've attached a file, if you don't have any midi ones.
