I want to thank everybody who has helped thus far in the saga of my getting
the LilyPond/JEdit/LilyPondTool combo up and running.

Thanks to several people's suggestions, I think I got the permissions problem fixed. I have no idea how I could have had permissions trouble in the first place, since I have always installed things exclusively as a user, but

I have now gotten as far as getting the combination set-up to display the little scale that is included as a test file for beginners in LilyPond. It's titled simply "A scale in LilyPond" and it displays fine in the PDF displayer
that I have docked to the right of the JEdit workspace.

HOWEVER, the latest problem is that I can't seem to get the PDF displayer to STOP showing me this scale, even when I attempt to put in new files to be

For example, a buddy suggested that I use the LilyPondTool Score Wizard to make another four-note scale. FYI, I append the output it created below. But I can't get it to display -- even though I have the new file in JEdit, I still
see the original scale to the right.

Here's what I put in with the Wizard:

\version "2.12.3"

\header {
title = "Seth's Test Score"
 subtitle = "(suggested by Bob)"
  composer = "Seth Williamson"


staffTrumpetInC = \new Staff {
\time 4/4
\set Staff.instrumentName = "Trumpet in C"
\set Staff.midiInstrument = "trumpet"
\transposition bes,
\key c \major
\clef treble
\relative c' {
a b c d

\bar "|."


\score {

\midi {

  \layout {

\paper {

Here is what I think are the error codes the above code generated. Anybody
have any ideas what went wrong?

I think the problem is spaces and the single quote in your filename.

Change the name of your file to, and I predict it will
work fine.
That's what I thought, too. I tested both Seth's Test and and both compiled on Mac OS 10.4.11; LP 2.13.31; LPT 2.12.894; jEdit 4.3.2.
So the spaces don't seem to be the cause of the problem.

The only problem I got was to get unicode support from jEdit.
Also Midi support did not work well with LilyPondTools AT ALL
The other regular things went well.
