Thanks. This is weird. It looks like I can get the various front ends, but the backend server doesn't seem to be there. This is what I get back from issuing apt search linuxsampler in a terminal.

Issuing sudo apt install linuxsampler returns this.

Package linuxsampler is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

I downloaded Fantasia from Linuxsampler site and put that into the same folder as .jsampler (gonna ask when you start LS for the first time, you need to create that folder if it doesn't exist). It's a bit of a hassle that it doesn't load Fantasia when you load the plugin in Reaper, you have to do it manually. In Windows it pops right up. You also need Java Runtime to use Fantasia. I wish someone could make a script or something that loads up Fantasia in Reaper.

More info here:
So are you saying that using it in a project will require a manual startup of the frontend every time you load a project that uses Linuxsampler? If that's the case, I'll probably stick with the Windows plugin "Phenome" running in Wine and bridged, but I'd really prefer to get free from all Windows plugins and go 100% native with all Linux based plugins.
