My (born as Ubuntu Studio) box has these without the ".dpkg-new" extensions.  
I'm not sure where that came from.  Broken package?  Some manual config step 
you're supposed to do?

I have no idea, but I'd start by renaming those to freepats.cfg and 
timidity.cfg and see if that did the trick.

Once you get TiMidity working, you can also start it as an ALSA synth client, 
and then play it with Rosegarden.  If you want to twiddle the MIDI files, for 
example.  Or you can use QSynth instead.  QSynth sounds better IMHO, but it's 
more involved to get noise the first time.
