Dino only works with synths that have JACK MIDI ports. The standard
version of ZynAddSubFX does not have that, you need to patch it with one
of these patches: 

http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1310895&group_id=62934&atid=502314

http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1310897&group_id=62934&atid=502314

The second one is better since that adds support for LASH as well. These
patches add a JACK MIDI port that work simultaneously with the ALSA
sequencer port, so you can use Dino and e.g. your ALSA-supported
keyboard with ZynAddSubFX at the same time.

There is a brief description in the README. Basically it's like this:

 * Ctrl-left click adds notes
 * Ctrl-right click removes notes
 * Middle click and drag left/right changes the length of notes
 * Ctrl-middle click and drag up/down changes the velocity of notes
 * Left clicking and dragging outside notes selects all notes inside the
   dragged box
 * Shift-left click selects or unselects a single note
 * Clicking and dragging a note moves that note (or the entire
   selection)
 * Middle-clicking outside notes inserts a copy of the current selection
   at that point
 * "Cut", "Copy", "Paste", "Delete", "Select all" work as expected
   (except that when you "Paste" you have to click where you want the
   notes in the clipboard to appear)
 * Left clicking and/or dragging in the controller box adds controller
   events, right clicking and/or dragging removes them

Thank you.
