Hi Ralph,

I'm running LilyPond 2.19.81 with Frescobaldi 3.0.0 under Ubuntu 18.04.2.

Has any progress been made in making a process available to install LilyPond 2.20 or 2.21 on Ubuntu 18.04? Back in March of this year (2019), there was a brief discussion about installing Guile 1.8 on Ubuntu 18.04, so that ly 2.20 could run. I tried to follow the suggestions, but was unsuccessful. If someone would be willing to work with me, perhaps off-list, and we were successful, maybe we could post a working process to enable others to install and use ly 2.20.

As David K pointed out, a "LilyPond 2.20" or "2.21" does not exist yet. But you can compile, e.g. current Master and work with this.

I posted instructions (that surely could be improved upon) to do this on Mint 19.1 in December; I'd guess it's probable that they are also valid for Ubuntu 18.04:

In the discussion started by this message, some useful scripts were mentioned (which I did not need to try out).
