On a separate subject, I'd like to recommend you to use lyluatex

found it to be a cleaner way to work as it is a LuaLaTeX package
(developed by the Gregorio team!) and not an engine.

I wanted to give this package a try and copied the two files
lyluatex.sty and lyluatex.lua in my project folder
(as described in

Now I get

! LuaTeX error ./lyluatex.lua:1: attempt to index global 'luatexbase' (a nil 
stack traceback:

l.13 ...tlua{dofile(kpse.find_file("lyluatex.lua"))}


As an alternative, I made a directory in the texlive tree

$ sudo mkdir /usr/local/texlive/2014/texmf-dist/tex/lualatex/lyluatex/

and copied the files in there, followed by a

$ sudo mktexlsr

but the error message persists.

Can someone of the TeXperts explain to me what I am (obviously) doing wrong 

Not a TeXpert (any more),  but from my quick tests - nothing.
I got the same error as you.  I "fixed" this bug by adding


before using the lyluatex package.

Thanks, that works for me too!

Unfortunately, while the luatex compile now works, the output isn't what I'd 
My final pdf shows a box with the name of the tmp-file that lilypond created ...
Not enough itch to scratch for me but maybe someone will be able to ebug this.
For now, I'd say this isn't  a production-ready alternative to lilypond book.

I compiled my 40+ project with the lyluatex package and I can see the scores, so for me, it works now as expected.
