Dear Fr. Michael,

I’m afraid, I wanted to write you back yesterday evening but I had some
problem with sending mails to this list. I hope this problems are solved

lilypond-book now works without problems. (I’m a GNU/Linux user so I
can’t use your TEX Shop script.) Unfortunately xelatex aborts displaying
following error message:

Do you have any idea what’s going wrong?

Thanks for this advice. I didn’t know there was a XE(LA)TEX section in
the Lilypond manual because I am using Lilypond 2.10.33 (the version
included in Debian GNU/Linux stable) and in the manual of this prior
version there is no XE(LA)TEX section.

This was clear even though you have forgotten to mention it first. =)

Thank you for helping me and best regards
