Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0.2-1.3.2 (X11/20050324)
Greetings fellow Lilyponders,
I've started getting odd behaviour from Lilypond, starting with version
2.4.2 and now on through 2.4.5. To be more specific, the odd behaviour
is coming from dvips. It refuses to produce ps and pdf output files as
in the good old days of yore. Now it seems to want to produce the wrong
format (a4) and send it directly to my printer. I don't want this. I
just want nice ps and pdf files produced automatically. Here is the
message I get:
address@hidden Music]$ lilypond brahms.ly
GNU LilyPond 2.4.5
Interpreting music... 
Preprocessing graphical objects...
Calculating line breaks... 
Layout output to `brahms.tex'...
Converting to `brahms.dvi'...
Converting to `brahms.ps'...
Error invoking `dvips -t "a4" -u+ec-mftrace.map -u+lilypond.map -Ppdf
brahms > /dev/null 2>&1 '. Return value 256
Converting to `brahms.pdf'...Error invoking `ps2pdf -sPAPERSIZE="a4"
brahms.ps > /dev/null 2>&1 '. Return value 256
I do get preview files, but this is really not ideal as I'd like to be
able to work with point-and-click xdvi and gvim, as I always have.
I read the man pages for dvips to find out how to alter this weird
behaviour, but they were singularly unhelpful about where to locate the
offending configuration files. Any help would be very gratefully
received, as I'm fairly clueless about TeX and its siblings. I'm running
Fedora Core 3 with updated Ghostscript version 8.15rc2-3 and
ec-fonts-mftraced version 1.0.9-1.
