No, you don't have to install jackd - you can use ALSA by adding `-a alsa` to your command line:

fluidsynth -a alsa /usr/share/sounds/sf2/FluidR3_GM.sf2 the-midi-file.mid

On Linux, Fluidsynth tries to use JACK by default, but you can specify any of the options in the FluidSettings.xml file for audio.driver.

I just installed fluidsynth in a fresh Ubuntu 20.04 machine.

After that I tried the simplest test possible, play a midi file:

fluidsynth /usr/share/sounds/sf2/FluidR3_GM.sf2 the-midi-file.mid

But I get the following error:
exec of JACK server (command = "/usr/bin/jackd") failed: No such file or directory
(Full message[1])

So, it seems evident, but I want to check: Is it required by fluidsynth to have jackd installed?
