try install freepats from the testing repo...

Quote
To use freepats with TiMidity++ and/or SDL_mixer, edit /etc/timidity.cfg and make it look like this:
source /etc/timidity/freepats.cfg

Add the testing repo to your gslapt repo list

32bit: http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-7.0/testing/
64bit: http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/VL64-7.0/testing/

PS: Disable testing repo after installation
