    Timidity error + apt-get

    Hi, I hope someone can help me

    Cant really remember what i did to make this start but
    everytime I use add/remove programs, synaptic package manager or apt-get
    i get this error :

    Code:
    Setting up timidity (2.13.2-19ubuntu1) ...
       ...fail!
    invoke-rc.d: initscript timidity, action "start" failed.
    dpkg: error processing timidity (--configure):
     subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
    Errors were encountered while processing:
     timidity
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
    I am clueless as to what to do, I tried removing, reinstalling timidity without luck.

    Re: Timidity error + apt-get

    I've tried a few things without luck.

    synaptic package manager - edit - fix broken packages

    and

    sudo dpkg --configure -a
    sudo apt-get install -f

    which I found in this forum, but neither of those helped me :\

    I did manage to uninstall timidity, but then I found out I
    need it to play skulltag

    So, timidity is reinstalled, and making these errors again.


    I hope someone can help me with this issue, cause I find it really annoying

    I have the same error. I wonder what could be the matter. When I reinstall, it just gives me the same error, whether I do it through the package manager or the terminal.

    The strange thing is, the program itself seems to work, rendering midi just fine. It just spouts errors.

    I get the error too.

    Looks like *somebody* knows about it:
