       vmpk - Virtual MIDI Piano Keyboard

       vmpk [Standard options...]

       This manual page	documents briefly the vmpk program.

       This program has	standard Qt programs options.

       Virtual MIDI Piano Keyboard is a	MIDI events generator and receiver. It
       doesn't produce any sound by itself, but	can be used to drive a MIDI
       synthesizer (either hardware or software, internal or external).	You
       can use the computer's keyboard to play MIDI notes, and also the	mouse.
       You can use the Virtual MIDI Piano Keyboard to display the played MIDI
       notes from another instrument or	MIDI file player.

	   sets	the application	GUI style. Possible values are motif, windows,
	   and platinum. If you	compiled Qt with additional styles or have
	   additional styles as	plugins	these will be available	to the -style
	   command line	option

	   sets	the application	styleSheet. The	value must be a	path to	a file
	   that	contains the Style Sheet. Note:	Relative URLs in the Style
	   Sheet file are relative to the Style	Sheet file's path.

	   restores the	application from an earlier session.

	   prints debug	message	at the end about number	of widgets left
	   undestroyed and maximum number of widgets existed at	the same time

	   sets	the application's layout direction to Qt::RightToLeft

	   sets	the backend to be used for on-screen widgets and QPixmaps.
	   Available options are raster	and opengl.

       -display	display
	   sets	the X display (default is $DISPLAY).

       -geometry geometry
	   sets	the client geometry of the first window	that is	shown.

       -fn|-font font
	   defines the application font. The font should be specified using an
	   X logical font description.

       -bg|-background color
	   sets	the default background color and an application	palette	(light
	   and dark shades are calculated).

       -fg|-foreground color
	   sets	the default foreground color.

       -btn|-button color
	   sets	the default button color.

       -name name
	   sets	the application	name.

       -title title
	   sets	the application	title.

       -visual TrueColor
	   forces the application to use a TrueColor visual on an 8-bit

       -ncols count
	   limits the number of	colors allocated in the	color cube on an 8-bit
	   display, if the application is using	the QApplication::ManyColor
	   color specification.	If count is 216	then a 6x6x6 color cube	is
	   used	(i.e. 6	levels of red, 6 of green, and 6 of blue); for other
	   values, a cube approximately	proportional to	a 2x3x1	cube is	used.

	   causes the application to install a private color map on an 8-bit

	   sets	the input method server	(equivalent to setting the XMODIFIERS
	   environment variable)

	   defines how the input is inserted into the given widget, e.g.,
	   onTheSpot makes the input appear directly in	the widget, while
	   overTheSpot makes the input appear in a box floating	over the
	   widget and is not inserted until the	editing	is done.
