Thanks for all your help, guys.

It looks like QSynth is working OK, but I don't see any way to tell it
what file to play!
btw. you should be able to play midi files in totem/rythmbox (if you
have gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad installed) it will use wildmidi though. I
should look into adding a fluidsynth midi renderer to gstreamer. The
main hassle for me regarding using fluidsynth in gstreamer is the
non-standard locations for soundfonts (as the user will need to specify
a soundfont to make it work).

It sounds like we need to define some kind of standard if there isn't one out there already.

Something like:
A standard GM soundfont should always be in /usr/share/soundfonts/GM.sf2 (and that could be a symlink for distros who want to use configuration mechanisms).

Question is whether this stuff should actually be in FluidSynth or in its clients. If the client does not specify a soundfont on the command line, it might be that he/she wants to load it as a shell command. Maybe yet another switch --load-default-soundfont (and corresponding API thing)?
