I thought I'd start by creating my own lilypond-book file and getting it
to look good.  Then, when I had it the way I wanted it, I'd make changes

I tried running lilypond-book on a very simple booktest.lytex file:


Here is a test of the fret diagrams code when used in lilypond-book.

\relative {
  c2 g'2 \times 2/3 { f8 e d } c'2 g4

kpathsea: Running mktexmf parmesan20
! I can't find file `parmesan20'.
<*> ...four; mag:=1; nonstopmode; input parmesan20
then I get

! I can't find file `lilyponddefs'.
l.22   \input lilyponddefs
Please type another input file name:

It seems apparent to me that I have environment variables
messed up somehow.

address@hidden out]$ env
