Sorry, but I haven't the foggiest notion where you'd put it in that case. If it doesn't load "inmod png" it won't support that theme using a background.png image anyhow.
Oh, I see. It's alright then. Thanks for your prompt help! :)

Re: Install Mint 19.3 Grub Theme in Mint 18.3?

Not sure if 18.3 has all needed support, but no harm in trying it, I suppose. Copy the /boot/grub/themes/linuxmint directory and its contents from 19.3 and the line to be inserted into /boot/grub/grub.cfg (just after "insmod png") would be: set theme=($root)/boot/grub/themes/linuxmint/theme.txt Hi,...

Install Mint 19.3 Grub Theme in Mint 18.3?

Good day, I have recently tried installing and using Mint 19.3 on my old Thinkpad X230 laptop, and found the GRUB loader screen theme to be very nice, clean and neat (though I might change the wallpaper). Unfortunately some things I use are broken in 19.3 in this system, like fingerprint-gui, certai...

Re: Unable to autostart Fluidsynth automatically using Startup

Understood. Do be aware that many users have an issue where Timidity blocks their sound card from working with anything else. Just a heads up. Yes, that's true. I noticed that in Arch Linux. Hence, changed to Fluidsynth there. In Mint, Timidity works without problems (at least, in this laptop) alon...

Re: Unable to autostart Fluidsynth automatically using Startup

I installed Timidity just now, and it starts automatically along with my MUNT MT-32 emulator, without problems.

I guess, I'll just keep using Timidity in MINT instead.

I'll keep this thread unsolved, since I can't make Fluidsynth start automatically on startup.

The only thing I can think of is to try it this way (slightly different):

Code: Select all

bash -c 'sleep 5; fluidsynth -a alsa -m alsa_seq -l -i ~/MIDI/arachno.sf2'
Unfortunately this didn't make it autostart too.

Re: Unable to autostart Fluidsynth automatically using Startup

I believe you need to have JACK running first, before Fluidsynth starts... I'm not sure...I always start JACK before starting QSynth, Fluidsynth, etc... I can start Fluidsynth from the terminal command prompt.Just couldn't load it automatically when I start up Mint, using the Startup Applications c...

Sorry for the late reply.

No I don't have JACK autostarting.

Re: Unable to autostart Fluidsynth automatically using Startup

I'm afraid that didn't work too.

I wonder why an otherwise normally successful executing command within a terminal, (including invoking fluidsynth through an executable file), works, but can't run from within Startup Applications. :roll:

Re: Unable to autostart Fluidsynth automatically using Startup

Thank you for your help. I too am wondering why it simply refuses to load automatically on startup, the same command which can be loaded manually at the terminal. It's not so much a problem but the disappointment (and annoyance) of why something which is straight forward not working as it should. Ma...

Re: Unable to autostart Fluidsynth automatically using Startup

One last try. I know you said yours works in the terminal, but see if this works for the Startup Applications: bash -c 'sleep 5 && fluidsynth -a alsa -m alsa_seq -l -i ~/MIDI/arachno.sf2' I'm basing that on this page: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/FluidSynth Tried that, and unfortunately, do...

Re: Unable to autostart Fluidsynth automatically using Startup

I'm at a bit of a loss here. Oops, try this instead: bash -c 'sleep 5 && fluidsynth --audio-driver=alsa --midi-driver=alsa_seq --server ~/MIDI/arachno.sf2' Tried that but still doesn't load at startup. :( Even when I click on "run now" within the Startup Application window, it doesn't run....

Re: Unable to autostart Fluidsynth automatically using Startup

Hi Malik, Try a brief pause to the startup command. Maybe ALSA isn't ready when your command runs. I'd suggest this as your Startup command: bash -c "sleep 5 && fluidsynth --audio-driver=alsa --midi-driver=alsa_seq --server ~/MIDI/arachno.sf2" Good luck. P.S. The reason for the bash command is the ...

The command is fluidsynth --audio-driver=alsa --midi-driver=alsa_seq --server ~/MIDI/arachno.sf2 I have also tried ...
