    No sound from Rosegarden

    First let me explain that I am a complete newby as far as Linux is concerned. Generally I find Xubuntu 13.04 is very easy to use. The one place I find difficulty is in trying to install new software. I want to use my computer mainly for composing and playing midi music files. I have just installed Rosegarden sequencer software, and it looks ideal for what I want to do. However my problem is I get no sound output at all. Having read a lot of posts from others that experienced a similar problem I think my problem is that I need to install a soundfont or softsynth for Rosegarden to use. I have no idea really what a soundfont is, let alone know how to install it. Please can somebody help me with this problem I have.

    I want only to use midi GM sounds, I am not interested in audio sounds. What I need is a step by step guide as to which soundfont/softsynth I need and how I configure it so I can assign GM midi sounds to the tracks I create in Rosegarden and have them play through my computer soundcard . Any help will be much appreciated.
