Re: Special characters in path using lilypond-book with Texshop engine

I can typeset your example (see the attachment with all the generated files) no 
matter how the path looks like. I do not think that the location of 
lilypond-book matters. At this point, I can only suggest you to avoid non-ASCII 
paths as a workaround, if that works for you.

From now on, I think you can email me privately, so LilyPond’s developer may 
close this issue, as it is most probably not LilyPond-related.
