there are two, this is the other one.

Actually, Musescore (>= 2.0) had changed the prefered sound font format
and now ships its own font in "/usr/share/mscore
-2.0/sound/FluidR3Mono_GM.sf3". The Depends: musescore-soundfont-gm has
been demoted into a Suggests. Moreover, this package is now an empty
dummy pulling in the separately packaged sound font in the old format,
which is currently waiting for ftp-master approval:
