Install lilypond and ec_fonts_mftraced packages which are available at They have been created by me and they are working fine on Slackware 10 for me.

Hello everybody,

I am trying to install Lilypond 2.4 for Slackware 10 and found a package for it on the net. it states that I should install ec-mftraced-fonts package, so I downloaded it and tried to install ec-mftraced-fonts-1.0.9 first from source, but installing that one resulted in alot of errors. Then I downloaded the rpm and ran rpm2tgz, checked the contents and installed it.

Now I can compile a ly file and it generates a dvi and a midi file, but with the ps and pdf I get the following errors:

partial output from lilypond (the Bach song, from the Mutopia project, converted to 2.4):

MIDI output to `jesusjoy.midi'...
Layout output to `jesusjoy.tex'...
Converting to `jesusjoy.dvi'...
Converting to `'...
Error invoking `dvips -t "a4" - Ppdf jesusjoy > /dev/null 2>&1 '. Return value 256 Converting to `jesusjoy.pdf'...Error invoking `ps2pdf - sPAPERSIZE="a4" > /dev/null 2>&1 '. Return value 256

lilypond --version gives: GNU LilyPond 2.4.2
gcc --version gives: gcc (GCC) 3.3.4
dvips --version gives: dvips(k) 5.92b and kpathsea version 3.4.5
ps2pdf is probably version 7.0.7

My question is twofold:
- has anyone succesfully installed and used lilypond 2.4 under Slackware 10? And which steps were taken to make it so?
- Anyone any idea what is going wrong exactly?
