Hi, I maintain lilypond in openSUSE and while I'm good at building and
packaging I'm far from competent as a lilypond user. A user has filed a
bug with the title listed in this messages subject. Could somebody
please have a quick look and maybe offer a hint as to what is causing
it. See :
Unfortunately I'm only subscribed to this list and just wondered if
somebody could tell me if this is actually a bug or the wrong usage of
lilypond-book. Lilypond-2.18.2 being very mature I would have expected
there to have been a bug report already but I can't find any.
That looks like LilyPond-book being only half-functional, assuming that
the given lilybook.lytex file is well-formed (not exactly a given
either).  In that case, I would suspect the culprit to be the wrong
Python version: LilyPond's Python scripts require Python 2 to be run.
I don't know how typical packagers may ensure that this is the case.

All our python3 is suffixed 3 so lilypond can only run with python-2x which in the case of the reporter is python-2.7.8 The reporter uploaded the file he has problems with but failed to upload file2.ly which is mentioned in testbook.lytex, this file looks well written to me. I can't even get to his failure point on my system yet. Is there a complete .lytex file somewhere that I can use without copying text from the documentation and I also don't understand his comment that lilypond-book succeeds "If you place the contents inline, it doesn't work; if you include the contents, it works."
