Hello there!
I hope you guys can help me because my faith in Tex and Lilypond is starting 
to fade away... I am a Bulgarian, so I first expirianced a lot of problems to 
get cyrillic support in TeX and Lilypond. After this i spend few days trying 
to combine Tex and Lilypond with the lilypond-book 2.6.0
It was awfull. Everywhere I saw examples like ¨ow you just have to press  few 
keys and you got this wonderfull output...¨. None of them worked! So i 
started asking myself is there something wrong with me or with my software... 
I will show you what is happening when i try to compile the example of 
musicological document for lilypond-book 2.6.0 ( I hope you guys give me hand 
because i like the idea of Lilypond and Tex ) ( Excuse me for my english 


I am using Fedora Core linux ver. 4
My Tex is : latex -v
pdfeTeX 3.141592-1.21a-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.4)
kpathsea version 3.5.4
and lilypond: lilypond -v
GNU LilyPond 2.6.0

This is the contents of a file called lilybook.tex which i created using vim 
and the code from

       c2 g'2 \times 2/3 { f8 e d } c'2 g4
     Options are put in brackets.
       c'4 f16

I removed the lines : 
    Larger examples can be put into a separate file, and introduced with

And i tryed to compile the document:

address@hidden OFF]# mkdir out | lilypond-book --psfonts -o out lilybook.tex
