Thank you very much for the tip! Now I can see the music on LyX and view the
pdf file. This is exactly the sort of program I was looking for, and now I
can get down to work on my book. Who must I thank?

Thank you very much for that tip. Following your advice, I've installed
in my Ubuntu. In the included documentation, I've found only one
to Lilypond (to use Insert>File>External Material>Lilypond file). When I
this (ie, insert a .ly file) all I get is a field saying "Lilypond
music". Then, when I do Insert>Custom Insets>Lilypond, I get an inset
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,
do you do that?

Click on the first icon in the icon bar (the two eyes) or type "Ctrl + R".
You should see the PDF file in your external pdf viewer.

Otherwise you can see the output inside Lyx, if you enable the instant


PS (just a memo for me)
The custom insets for Lilypond must be enabled in
Document>Settings>Modules (add lilypond book).
The instant preview doesn't show the image generated by the code in the
inset, you can see it only in the external pdf.

Glad you like it. Enjoy!

There's a example file lilypond.lyx included in the LyX installation. Please have a look there for a description of usage, and perhaps some inspiration. Also, see the LyX tutorial from the help menu for a general introduction to LyX philosophy and usage.

By the way, to any users of LyX together with lilypond-book, please provide your feedback on how to improve the support. I do not use the module myself, but would work together with you if you bring good, valid improvement ideas. Drop an email to the LyX user list, address@hidden
