I don't know any Black Magic.  You might have tried this already, but I'd give 2.5.x a try.  Hey, the worst that can happen is that it fails, right?  You could try the redhat rpm, but I'd go straight to the source tarball.  Follow the instructions in the INSTALL directory, and if anything goes wrong, post here again. - Graham _______________________________________________ lilypond-user mailing list [hidden email] http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/lilypond-user

Compiling 2.5.2x goes smoothly on suse 9.3; at least I have noticed no particular problem. And once you use 2.5.x you need not worry about dvips -sort of things. my best, Tapio _______________________________________________ lilypond-user mailing list [hidden email] http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/lilypond-user

I had trouble with lilypond in SuSE 9.3, which now is solved thanks to Mats Bengtsson. This is the solution: cd /usr/share/lilypond/2.4.4/fonts/ mkdir map cd map ln -s ../../dvips/lilypond.map texhash R/Bo _______________________________________________ lilypond-user mailing list [hidden email] http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/lilypond-user

I have deleted 2.4.4 and built 2.5.27 on SuSE now, and you are right: compilation went quite smoothly. But it is not much use, because none of my old 2.4.x scores work. I used convert-ly, but I still have several problems. One score doesn't compile, and the other ones have one-line-staves instead of five-line ones (this -at least- seems to be a bug of the unstable version because the score on page 48 of the 2.5 Manual, pdf version, shows the same phenomenon). So, I think that I will wait for a new stable version, because I am fed up with spending days on trying to get things running. By the way, thanks to Bo Herlin, but this "solution" didn't work for me (I had even tried similar soft-link solutions myself before). If any of the developers is interested, see below for the output of the score that doesn't compile.

That's not going to help. 2.6 will be based on the current 2.5 - send a bug report if you want it fixed. --   Han-Wen Nienhuys - [hidden email] - http://www.xs4all.nl/~hanwen_______________________________________________ lilypond-user mailing list [hidden email] http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/lilypond-user

In the future, please refer to the section number, rather than pdf.   Saying ``the template in section 3.5 "Ancient notation templates"  is broken" is easier for us to track, since the page numbers change between versions. I'll follow up this bug. > So, I think that I will wait for a new stable version, > because I am fed up with spending days on trying to get > things running. The next stable version is based on the current 2.5 version, and will be coming out Real Soon Now.  If there's bugs -- and I wouldn't have noticed that problem in Ancient Notation, BTW -- then we'd like to know about them. > GNU LilyPond 2.5.27 > »sicongieprens-neu.ly« wird verarbeitet > Analysieren...sicongieprens-neu.ly:1:48: In expression > (make-stencil-boxer 0.1 > 0.25 ...): > sicongieprens-neu.ly:1:48: Wrong number of arguments to # make-stencil-boxer (thickness padding callback)> The attachment got cut off, but it looks like you're trying to do something fancy in scheme. - Graham _______________________________________________ lilypond-user mailing list [hidden email] http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/lilypond-user

In fact, the attachment isn't cut off. This is the output. And I didn't do anything fancy as far as I can tell. If I understand correctly, it says that the error is in line 1, column 48? This location doesn't exinst in my input file. If you're interested I can send you my input file. As for the one-line-staff bug: Since you said you'll follow up this bug, I won't file a bug report for this. But I agree with that I should have done it in the first place. Again, thanks everyone for the response, Robert _______________________________________________ lilypond-user mailing list [hidden email] http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/lilypond-user

Well, yes.  We can't figure out what went wrong without an input file. - Graham _______________________________________________ lilypond-user mailing list [hidden email] http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/lilypond-user
