Hi Tyler,
it was from apt package. Which version would you recommend? I need to re-install anyway. I'm on Debian Linux, but I'm not a very skilled user.
Normally I install everything with apt-get install - only when I really have to, I do (or try) otherwise.

Count me as one who says that ligatures are absolutely essential.
(I couldn't say whether it's a bug in LilyPond or not, but I
couldn't work without them.)

I've had this problem on OS X (as it then was). I have both the
official LilyPond binary installed in /Applications and a homebrew
version (can't remember whether bottled or compiled) installed in
/usr/local and one supports ligatures and one does not. (I'm away
from home at the moment and don't have access to that computer, so
I can't check which is which.)

Where did you obtain the LilyPond install from -- was it from apt
package or from the official distribution at
