I do this a lot.  The only way I can get the SF2s to play on several computers is to use the samples folder.

I just made a sound fonts folder to organize them within the samples and they seem to import to other computers just fine.

I sync the LMMS home folder using Google Drive and then set my preferences to use that as the default location and it works flawlessly (vsts still use absolute paths, so MOSTLY flawlessly).

For Ubuntu, we use the InSync client for connecting to google drive.

I've a pile of stuff I created in LMMS in Ubuntu, which uses the

all the sounds - specifically, those from the Fluid soundfonts.
(Sounds that come with LMMS are fine.)

1. I've set the path to the soundfont file correctly in
Edit->Preferences. This is *the same* file I'm using in Ubuntu. I open
up a file and the soundfont is silent - until I go into the SF2
controller, open the "File" dialogue to tell it that its soundfont is
*precisely where it already thinks it is*. Doing this for every
instance of SF2 in every song is a little annoying.

2. When I do this, or when I put a fresh instance of SF2 into a track,
every sound is rendered as a piano sound.

What am I doing wrong? Is it even possible to play sounds from the
FluidR3_GM.sf2 soundfont in Windows?
