In synaptic make sure the "universe" repository is selected (you can do this 
from Settings->Repositories). Then reload the package information, select 
lilypond and install it. Alternatively if you already know this repository is 
activated, you can simply open a terminal and type:

        sudo apt-get lilypond

Good luck,
