It seems that in testing/unstable the timidity-patches are missing, perhaps 
there was some licencing issue.

I installed timidity a long time ago -- probably on Ham. At that time the 
patches that came with timidity weren't very good so I installed the 
"eawpats" myself. They are available here 

http://www.stardate.bc.ca/eawpatches/eawpats12_full.rar

You will need to "unrar" them (apt-get install unrar)

I placed them in /usr/share/timidity/eawpats/

my timidity.cfg file looks as follows

# start
dir /usr/share/timidity/eawpats/
source gravis.cfg
source gsdrums.cfg
source gssfx.cfg
source xgmap2.cfg
# end

That should get you running :)
