When I try to compile a .ly file in lilypond-mode, it fails with the message:

/bin/bash: line 1: lilypond: command not found

is lilypond in your path? Does emacs know about your path? In my ~/.emacs, I have
(add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "elisp" (getenv "HOME")))
(setq exec-path (split-string "/Users/jamesebailey/Applications/ bin:/usr/sbin" path-separator))
(setenv "PATH" (mapconcat 'identity exec-path ":"))
(setenv "MANPATH" "/Users/jamesebailey/share/man:/usr/share/man:/ usr/X11R6/man:/man") (setenv "INFOPATH" "/Users/jamesebailey/share/info:/usr/local/info:/ usr/local/share/info:/usr/share/info")

Hmmm. I'll have to look closer at that. I don't bother with X11 any more on my Macs so I don't need (and don't have) that stuff in my .emacs file. I haven't found anything I need to use that requires the X11 environment in a long time. However,

(setq load-path (append (list (expand-file-name"/Applications/")) load-path))

doesn't get the job done since it only points at the Lisp for lilypond-mode. I'll try adding the

/Applications/ bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin


Thanks for mentioning this.
