okay, I got it:

sudo sh /path/to/my/downloaded/files/lilypond-2.7.27-3.linux.sh

with this command you get an installation that works the exspected way
(i.e. simply type "lilypond" into a shell, no matter which user you
are), otherwise (withou sudo) one would always have to change the
directory by hand.

maybe this should be mentioned on the LP site for the less experienced
linux users (like me ;-), or the .sh should always prompt for root
password.

Thanks for the help,

John

It should also work if you're a normal user. ~/bin/ is in the PATH in
most distributions, isn't it?

I thought so. But obviously its not the case on my system. Where can I
see which paths are in and which not?

I've always added ~/bin/ to my path myself -- I've never seen it set up
in the path already.  We certainly shouldn't count on it being there.
