thing here that's looks like it might be the shortcut script is

try changing directory (cd ~/tomc/bin) to the tomc/bin directory, and
typing ./lilypond --version and pressing enter. If lilypond
runs and tells you your version, then lilypond is ok and you just have
a path problem. To fix that from the command line, you'd type export
PATH=$PATH:~/tomc/bin and press enter. You'd have to do that
everytime you log in. To fix it permanently, you would have to fix
your ~/.bashrc. This file, which you would have to create if it didn't
exist, runs everytime you open a command line. In an editor you would
look in .bashrc and see if there was a statement setting PATH. If
there is you'd add to the end :~/bin. If there's not, you'd
add a line to your .bashrc that said PATH=~/bin. If you need
more help, please email me.
