If you're looking for soundfonts there're a lot at:

A lot of them are terrible, but there are quite a few usable ones in there.

To use them in FluidSynth (or using the QSynth front-end) you'll want
to get them in .sf2 format. Sometimes they're in .sfArk format, which
is a compressed format that I think you need to use a windows tool to
un-compress. It may work in wine, though.
