Thank you very much for that tip. Following your advice, I've installed Lyx
in my Ubuntu. In the included documentation, I've found only one reference
to Lilypond (to use Insert>File>External Material>Lilypond file). When I do
this (ie, insert a .ly file) all I get is a field saying "Lilypond typeset
music". Then, when I do Insert>Custom Insets>Lilypond, I get an inset where
I can type in lilypond code. BUT I haven't been able to see the actual
music, nor to export the LyX file as a pdf. If it's not asking too much, how
do you do that?
I'm most grateful to you and of course to the LyX people. I'm about to end a
two-year search (from zero) for a program that lets me do just that.
