This question should be directed to the lilypond-user mailist.
If you have installed lilypond, then please read the tutorial. Try
following the steps in it, section by section, until you feel
comfortable with lilypond.
If you have trouble installing lilypond, you might want to read the
documentation for your distribution. The Debian manual has a lot of
info that will help you, even if you are using an offshoot of debian.
