Fluidsynth and Timidity++ both not working on Linux

Postby kaleb. » Mon Aug 05, 2019 10:53 am

Using the latest GZDoom 4.1.3 I cannot get either Fluidsynth nor Timidity++ working despite both being installed.

Trying to use Fluidsynth displays this error:
Could not load libfluidsynth.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


Trying to use Timidity++ just says:
Unable to create Timidity++ MIDI device. Falling back to Fluidsynth


I'm using Solus Linux and I'm really at a loss here. I really don't wanna use OPL....

FluidSynth: It looks like you got version 2 installed. As of right now, GZDoom requires version 1.
Timidity++: GZDoom does not use the system-provided installation - it contains a stripped down version of Timidity++ tailored to its own MIDI sequencer. You need to set it up so that the sound font can be found by GZDoom, for specfics wait for someone with better Linux knowledge to give more info.

Yep, I compiled the last version of Fluidsynth 1 and replaced all other Fluidsynth files on my computer and it's working nice and dandy now, thanks Graf 👍

How can i compile GZDoom without Fluidsynth?
Arch Linux doesn't have Fluidsynth 1.x even in AUR, and GZDoom complains about missing libfluidsynth.so.1 for me.

Switch to any other MIDI device, and GZDoom will no longer try to load FluidSynth library.
