oh, ok.  You don't have lilydev, or lilybuntu, or anything related
to the stuff that Jonathan prepared.  That's a plain old ubuntu
install.  Nothing wrong with it -- it's what I use on most of my
computers -- but you need more linux knowledge to get it set up.
You're just not benefitting from the work we did on lilydev to
make it easier for contributors.

ok, that's why you can't do this with normal user permissions.
You're looking at
instead of

lilydev has a
which is a "more proper" place to put stuff like this.  Umm...
it's kind-of like putting a program in C:\Program Files\dir\
instead of dumping stuff in C:\Windows\System\

Both methods will work, but one of them feels a bit "off".

It should be fine either way.

If you got some output with git-cl (or git cl), then follow those
two lines exactly.
git pull -r
git cl upload origin/master

When we make version 2.0 of lilydev, I'd recommend getting that
instead of using mainstream ubuntu.  But your system should be
fine for now.
