I guess ubuntu is using a very old version of midish.
Indeed, the easier is to uninstall ubuntu package and to compile a
recent version.

AFAICS, the following packages must be installed first: gcc,
make, libasound2-dev, libreadline-dev (not 100% sure about
package names).

Then, assuming you downloaded this file:

the following commands should work:

	tar -xzvf midish.tar.gz
	cd midish
	make install

Let me know how this works.
