MIDI does not work in GNU/Linux
It doesn't work, due to the fact that the only free soundfont I've come across -- Freepats -- is missing a lot of instruments; this results in the typical:
No instrument mapped to tone bank 0, program 41 - this instrument will not be heard No instrument mapped to tone bank 0, program 43 - this instrument will not be heard No instrument mapped to tone bank 0, program 52 - this instrument will not be heard No instrument mapped to tone bank 0, program 82 - this instrument will not be heard

x86_1# cat /etc/timidity/crude.cfg |grep 41 041 Tone_000/042_Cello.pat 41 Drum_000/041_Tom_Low_2.pat
I've searched around a lot and come up with nothing, any ideas?
If the only solution is to pay for a soundfont, then fine, just tell me the name of a soundfont that will work without any hacking and/or modification or patches with Timidity.
If not even a (payware) soundfont like that exists -- if my only option is to buy something else than Timidity, that comes with its own proprietary soundfont, then please tell me the name of that, I'm tired of this.
