Hello everyone!
Just a hopefully simple question: I tried to open the pdf generated by
Lilypond/Frescobaldi with Illustrator and Affinity Design for  fine
Of course I met the problem that some fonts were missing (almost
everyone with Designer!).
Therefore I’m in search of the proper fonts to install so that they
are available to the DTP programs I use.
Can anybody please point me to the font repository or tell me if I’m
not doing it properly?

The fonts should be embedded in the PDF; however I have no idea if those tools are clever enough to rely only on embedded fonts. They may be expecting to have access to the original fonts to be able to make changes to the document.

In any event, the fonts used by LilyPond are not normally installed at the operating system level but simply reside within LilyPond's directory:

<path to LilyPond installation>/usr/share/lilypond/current/fonts
