Re: Lilypond not rendering PDF on Mac

I’m running  Mac OS 10.14.2 with Lilypond 2.19.82 installed from the site’s 
disk image and using Fescobaldi 2.20.0, Frescobaldi is set to output pdf and 
does so without a problem. ps2pdf is located in /usr/local/bin/ps2pdf.

Compiling a file directly from the Lilypond app also produces the expected pdf 

While it doesn’t help much to have someone tell you it works on their machine, 
it does at least tell you it's possible. 

In my case, I have been using Lilypond somewhat continuously on Macs over the 
years and upgrading the OS as it comes. I have never experienced the problem 
you mentioned.

(off-topic: The only concern I have is that the next version of the OS will 
require 64-bit apps; Lilypond is 32)
