Cannot download new soundfont when running MuseScore 2.1 via AppImage

• May 11, 2017 - 21:12

When I run MuseScore 2.1 via the AppImage and although I have it installed in /user/share/mscore2.1/sound , I cannot find it when I open Synthesizer and click on Add. It simply is not displayed.
But when I run the same MuseScore 2.1 using its normal launch icon and execute the same procedure
it is there.
If you read my previous thread about the shortcut problems you will know the reason why I am now
using AppImage to start MuseScore. My God what a mess.....

I thought that I also had downloaded that soundfont in ~/Documents/MuseScore2/Soundfonts
but then it did not work, so I moved it to /usr/share/musescore2.1/sound which did not work
So, I tried it the second time and, as you advised, again placed it in ~/Documents/MuseScore2/Soundfonts. To my very surprise it now does work!

Thank you for your replies. For some unknown reason, my Tyros 5 will not allow me to make an instrument voice change. The midi in question is actually the ending of style which I wanted to
play long with and be able to read the notation from a pdf file which would have been converted from the midi track. Regards, Bob
