Ah, that greatly reduces confusion.
However, my point still stands that one needs to be aware that the
fonts available are unique between Windows and WSL. Installing a
font in Windows will not make it available to WSL LilyPond or vice
versa. Thankfully, Frescobaldi will show the fonts available to
LilyPond, which serves as a good tool to confirm that fonts are
installed properly in its environment.
But all of this is moot if Frescobaldi cannot be configured to use
WSL LilyPond in the first place. Urs, I know you have contributed
to the Frescobaldi project. Is this something you could speak to?
What I *can* say is this:
- LilyPond installations are registered in Frescobaldi by
pointing to their executable.
- Frescobaldi calculates a path relative to that executable and
adds that to the library path in the LilyPond process's
I have no idea how invoking external scripts works with the WSL,
so I can't comment any further, but as said, Frescobaldi is only
looking for an absolute path to the executable.
