Installing Fluid sound fonts in Debian based Linux.

Write guides and how-tos about LMMS for other members.
If you have a Debian based system, you most likely have the Synaptic Package Manager.
In the quick filter type in: fluid-soundfont-gm If you get no results add repository of: debian wheeze. main contrib non-free
Check that box after you have file located, and click apply.
This will install the sound fonts to be used system wide.
The sound fonts will be located in /user/share/sounds/fs2
open the LMMS setup and in the file paths for Default sound font file add
Thank you this seems to work the same on openSUSE.

LMMS did not complain anymore when I imported a midi file, about not having set a sound font.

( for others on openSUSE replace synaptic in the above story, with yast, and prob packman repo for debian weeze)

I did not have to add any repository, but my openSUSE install is not very standard anymore.
You can test your install, with this.
Yep song loads fine. Nice song btw.
