Dear Dr. Tsang
You might want to check out
Actually, I have met similar, (or more precisely, reverse,) problems
when I run 2.13.33 last month.
It seems, lilypond have output a pdf file, without a ps file as the ps
file was converted to pdf, when I run 2.13.33 last month, as
(The output files shoud be both ps and pdf, in my expectation.)
So, to specifically assign the output to be a ps file, according to the --help,
lilypond -f --ps musicfile.ly
So, you might want to run
lilypond -f --pdf musicfile.ly
for specifically assign the pdf in your situation.
good luck ^_^
