## Re: Installation problem

```Hi Riky and Maxime,

I had the following installation problem with Lilypond 2.4.2:
```
- Installation stopped at 98% at "/etc/postinstall/postinstall-lilypond.sh" - processing test.ly after cancelling the installation resulted in the error message "can't find 'feta20.afm'" and no pdf output.
```
The following procedure fixed the problem here
(although there may be shorter procedures to fix it):
1. deleted the c:\cygwin folder
```
2. installed cygwin with NO packages selected (just the cygwin core I suppose)
```3. installed lilypond
4. installed the tetex-extra package and related packages

After that the setup passed the 98% point where it had usually stopped.

Hope this helps,
Lukas

```Hello everybody,

I would like to give more information about my installation problem I've sent on january the 21st.

It seems several persons have the same problem but on different platforms.

```
Personally, I've tried to run lilypond 2.2 on a windows95 platform. I have followed the installation instructions that, I'm sure you all know, can be found on http://lilypond.org/web/download/windows.html.

Lukas Giesinger, exactly described the problem in his mail of january 21st. He had the same problem on a windows ME.

Basically, Lilypond has a problem finding the feta20.afm file. But I've checked my directories, this file can be found under : C:\cygwin\usr\share\lilypond\2.4.2\fonts
```
```
It also seems that, altough we follow the links and installation procedure to install lilypond 2.2, we in fact are installing lilypond 2.4. That should not be a problem except that, in order to install lilypond 2.4 correctly, it appears you also need to install manually ec*-fonts (and that is not necessary for the 2.2 version).
```
```
Now, maybe the solution is only to install these fonts, but it is not very clear to me how this should be done.
```

```Any ideas are welcome.

```
```Thanks
Kind regards
Eric
