No. I placed a copy of lilypond-profile in
/etc/profile.d/lilypond-profile but as I run lilypond in a
chroot'ed gentoo-partition it was not sourced. When sourcing it
manually the xdvi can run a lot of font-things, but the picture
is not much better, noteheads being triangular.

Thank you for the answer, it sounds like an interesting feature. I
will try it but need to know more about why I should click. Are
you referring to a feature combining xdvi and emacs, so that if I
want to change something I can click on the note and emacs will go
to the corresponding position in the source-file?

Clicking is not a major concern, though. I would much prefer
help on how to skew noteheads from the vertical axis in pianomusic
with complicated inner voicings.

I am working on Chopin C-major prelude just to find out how
complicated voicings can be done and there is a second-interval in
bar 20 which I cannot handle in a readable way. Noteheads grow
into each other. Can I attach the source (and a .ps) file?
