    I can't confirm this on my Hardy.

    Timidity is started as a daemon when the package is configured.
    That's the step that fails at yours:

    Setting up timidity (2.13.2-19ubuntu1) ...
    * Starting TiMidity++ ALSA midi emulation... [ OK ]

    Does
    $ sudo dpkg-reconfigure timidity
    give the same error?

    Also try
    $ sudo /etc/init.d/timidity start
