If you produce a PS version of your score using ly2dvi -P, and then
convert it to PDF, you will get bitmapped fonts which looks ugly
on the screen (even though it prints well). ly2dvi --pdf tries to
use Type1 versions (scalable vector fonts) of the fonts. Apparently
you don't have them installed. Please see

Thanks, I think the fonts are there, at least some of them. I run 'texhash' as indicated and it works fine producing Postcript files or dvi but --pdf does not work. However, I can convert from ps to pdf and it works, so I guess is ok.

The program runs with a simple example but all I can see are the lines of the staves but no notes.

If you compiled from source you will have to put the various font files
(.tfm, .afm, .mf, etc.) where TeX expects to find them. Then run 'texhash'
and try again.

The irony is that Bill Gates claims to be making a stable operating system
and Linus Torvalds claims to be trying to take over the world.
