After trying out Lilypond a long time ago I recently decided it was time to
try it again. I run a RH7.1 box so I downloaded the RPMs for RH7.1
(1.4-7). The RPMs installed without any problems. I then made a small
test. Lily digested it just fine but the music fonts did not appear. The
font files were in /usr/somethingorother so I linked them to where teTeX
looks for font material, ran 'texhash' and all was well.
Now I have run into a couple of problems which I have not been able to
solve yet. I have a measure in which I need to have two voices. The bottom
voice is sixteenth notes and the top voice is eighth notes. The time is
4/4 and the top voice only goes for the first three beats of the measure.
I tried the \context thing but I doubt that I'm using it correctly. Can it
start at any time, or does it need to be invoked at the beginning of the
file? I tried starting it up in the measure where I needed it.
In another measure I need to do this:
| | | |
Can someone point me to the right place in the docs? I have the doc
Another problem: I have a clef change during a beam. There are four
sixteenth notes in this beam, the clef change occurs after the first note
of the beam. I got the beam out of the way of the clef using;
\property Voice.Beam \set #'staff-position = #-10
It looks great but the beamed group immediately before it as well as all
following beams are adjusted. How do I limit the change to this one beamed
The file I'm working on originated on Windows with Finale 2000. I saved
the file as .MID and used midi2ly. The results were odd. I had some
phantom notes appearing where none were coded. I puzzled over this for a
while and finally decided to strip out all the midi related stuff in the
file. Once I cleaned that out the phantom notes disappeared. It happened
whether I saved the midi file as type 0 or type 1. I think the phantom
notes were supposed to be in a much later measure.
I also tried using the etf2ly on an .etf file saved by Finale 2000.
Lilypond seemed to choke on it. No ouput.
Just for fun I tried having Lilypond generate PS directly. The file
displayed just fine in gv (a bit "out of focus" in appearance) but when I
tried printing, the noteheads were printed as "$". I suspect that I need
to move/link the .pfa files to a place where gs can find them (but why did
it display properly?).
