Things to note there:

Code: Code Listing 4.2: Loading Soundfonts
(First, copy the Soundfont)
# cp /mnt/win2k/Program\ Files/CreativeSBLive2k/SFBank/8MBGMSFX.SF2 /usr/share/sounds/sf2/ 
(Or get it from your SoundBlaster CD)

Setting up KDE to play MIDI-files automatically

Open Controlcenter go to File Associations, choose Audio, then x-midi and in "Application Preference Order" add for example:

aplaymidi --port=128:0

To find out the right port:

Code: Code Listing 4.2: Finding out port
# aplaymidi -l
(on my system)
# Port    Client name                      Port name
#128:0    TiMidity                         TiMidity port 0
#128:1    TiMidity                         TiMidity port 1
#128:2    TiMidity                         TiMidity port 2
#128:3    TiMidity                         TiMidity port 3
