    Im not sure if this is the right place for this post, but here goes :)

    im pretty new to linux and so far I love it.
    I do have a few problems which im slowly resolving.

    But there is one problem I just cant seem to get rid of.

    Setting up timidity (2.13.2-19ubuntu1) ...
    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:
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
    I get this error everytime I use apt-get to remove, update, install.
    I also get it when I use add/remove program and synaptic.

    I did manage to remove timidity eventually just to find out I need
    it with a game I kinda love playing :)

    So I installed timidity again and I am getting these errors again.

    I've tried a number of things including:
    synaptic package manager -> edit -> fix broken packages


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

    ANY help would be welcome :)
    I didnt get a single reply on the ubuntuforums so i tought i'd try here :)
