Thanks, Marcus!

That works if I start FluidSynth manually in a terminal and leave it
there, but I'd like to get it to start every time the system reboots.
I have put the command in the Startup Applications (which I think is
just a GUI for systemd) but Frescobaldi says that no output was found.

How would you start FluidSynth at startup automatically?
