I installed 2.18.2 on a drive with a partitioned home directory which

I'd appreciate any detailed suggestions for updating this path and

Hi Keizen,

~home/bin/lilypond or /home/bin/lilypond doesn't look right to me

I would expect something like ~/bin/lilypond or /home/${USER}/bin/lilypond

In a terminal what does

     which lilypond

return? And what did you expect it to return?

And what do you get if you type

     echo $HOME

Also check files like .bashrc and .bash_profile in you HOME directory.

I am talking Linux (Fedora) here, you did not mention what OS you use.
OP quoted the error message: "bash: /home/bin/lilypond: No such file or
directory", so I think we can all safely assume Linux or something like

Indeed, and I'd expect something like /usr/bin/lilypond or /home/<username>/bin/lilypond

The OP should also tell us how LilyPond was installed (I assume from the downloaded installer).
