I don't realize where you managed to find RPMs for
version 1.7.9, I can't find them anywhere linked from the
Lilypond web page.

Anyway, I hope that the RPM actually contained the vector
fonts required for making PDF files. The directory
/usr/share/lilypond/1.7.9/fonts/Type1/ (or something like
that) should contain a number of *.pfa fonts, for example

What do the folowing commands return?
kpsewhich feta20.pfa

Maybe it helps to run the command 'texhash' (as root) to update
the TeX file name database.

If you don't specifically want the PDF files, just use
ly2dvi with the flag -P instead to get just the .dvi and
.ps versions of the score.

Hi I am very new to Lily Pond.
I installed from rpms and I get the following errors.
Analyzing asader2.tex...
Running latex...
ly2dvi: warning: Trying create PDF, but no PFA fonts found.
Using bitmap fonts instead. This will look poorly.
Running dvips...
Running ps2pdf...
DVI output to `asader2.dvi'...
PS output to `'...
PDF output to `asader2.pdf'...

I realize my system isn't properly setup yet but after reading the
manual Environment variables section I have no Idea how to do this.

If someone could help me I would most appreciate it.
BTW I am using bash for my root user and tsch shell for my local user.
