Just for further reference, a really quick way would be to create a Pd 
patch and attach a numberbox to a [notein] leftmost outlet (of course 
connect your midi controller to Pd via alsa-midi!).
That will give you the note number. Take into account that Pd will 
expose both note-on and note-off (i.e. a note with a velocity of 0)... 
that's normal :)
