Before I tell you my problem, I want to thank you for creating what
appears to be a wonderful application.  The examples of LilyPond that
I've seen are very clean and elegant, and I wish you all the best in
continuing to develop and propagate it. :)
Hopefully, my problem will be of some help to the development process.
;)  If it doesn't, I am nonetheless grateful for your support.  Here's
what happened when I ran ly2dvi after creating

$ ly2dvi -P
Running LilyPond...
GNU LilyPond 1.6.6
Now processing: `'
Interpreting music...[1]
Preprocessing elements...
Calculating column positions... [2]
paper output to `test.tex'...

Running dvips...
error: dvips: command exited with value 32512
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/ly2dvi", line 1055, in ?

  File "/usr/bin/ly2dvi", line 786, in run_dvips
    quiet_system (cmd, 'dvips')
  File "/usr/bin/ly2dvi", line 471, in quiet_system
    return system (cmd, ignore_error, quiet = 1)
  File "/usr/bin/ly2dvi", line 255, in system
    error (msg)
  File "/usr/bin/ly2dvi", line 151, in error
    sys.exit (2)
SystemExit: 2
DVI output to `test.dvi'...

When I view test.dvi with kdvi, it looks pretty clean, only the stems
are a bit detached from the noteheads and there's no ledger line for the
c note.
Any leads as to why a PostScript file wasn't generated?  I installed an
RPM version of LilyPond from an apt repository using Synaptic.
