I have only a couple of non-free apps on my Ubuntu machines, and Acrobat Reader is one of them because of this problem. :(


p.s. BTW, Apple's Preview also seems to render lilypond-generated .pdf files badly compared to Acrobat Reader. At least when I print them they look terrible from Preview.

prints as well, but the effect on LilyPond scores is dramatic.

See for yourself: .

scan from a print produced by Evince. Both programs printed to the
same 600dpi HP Laserjet which involves a Ghostscript filter.

This may be a known issue, though I could not find any references to

I reported the same problem with very similar pictures. This seems to
be a fault of the bad rendering Evince does from the thin rounded
