??? Are you saying that you still don't get the desired fonts?
Try the following:

Run the command:
  tex testfont
Fill in:
  Name of font to test = feta20
  * \table
  * \bye

Look at the file using xdvi:
  xdvi testfont
you should see a table with different musical symbols.

  dvips -Ppdf -G0 testfont

Look at the Postscript file using gv (ghostview)
  gv   (or ghostview
you should see the same result.

Try to convert the file to PDF:

Look at the PDF file:
  acroread testfont.pdf
Again the document should look the same.

These steps exactly mimic what ly2dvi does internally. If the above
example works, ly2dvi should also work. Otherwise, it could help us
sort out what kind of problems you have.

I see that I need a patch but vere is da patch??
and how do I install it???

You see it at the end of the referenced email!
The file to edit is .../bin/ly2dvi and you should replace
the line beginning with a minus sign in the patch with the
line beginning with a plus sign. In this case it's actually
easiest to do it by hand, otherwise, there are tools to apply
more complicated patches.

The problem you have seen with PFA fonts is known, see

Regarding Hebrew lyrics, I have seen your previous emails and planned
to do a small investigation and send a useful answer. Unfortunately,
it seems I never get the time to do it. The problem is that the answer
depends very much on how the Hewbrew support in LaTeX is implemented.
If you're lucky, it's very simple to add the support. Do you know of
any good introduction to Hebrew typesetting with LaTeX?


Well I didn't delve too deeply with hebrew latex I played with plain Tex
and it was fairly strait forward.

In fact the person who figured it out is doug Asherman.
So I will write him. I think
