As of at least 2.19.19 onwards the 64 bit Linux binary download of lilypond
will not compile files on Fedora 21 if they use fonts with a large character
set, for example, the Linux Libertine fonts. The warnings issued by
ghostscript about embedding a subset of the fonts are treated by lilypond as
fatal errors.

This code will not compile:


\version "2.19.19"

  #(define fonts
      #:roman "Linux Libertine O"
      #:sans "Linux Biolinum O"
      #:typewriter "Linux Libertine Mono O"
      #:factor (/ staff-height pt 20)

\relative c'' {

Lilypond error message:

warning: `(gs -q -dSAFER -dDEVICEWIDTHPOINTS=595.28
-dDEVICEHEIGHTPOINTS=841.89 -dCompatibilityLevel=1.4 -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH
-[r1200] -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sOutputFile=./fedora-bug.pdf -c.setpdfwrite' failed (256)

fatal error: failed files: ""

Running ghostscript standalone:

-dCompatibilityLevel=1.4 -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -[r1200] -sDEVICE=pdfwrite
-sOutputFile=./fedora-bug.pdf -c.setpdfwrite
GPL Ghostscript 9.15: Can't embed the complete font LinLibertineO as it is
too large, embedding a subset.

The warning is issued but the output file is produced. Lilypond will not
produce the output file.

Building lilypond from source on Fedora 21 makes a version of lilypond that
does not show this error behaviour.
