Greetings -

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.

All the best,


To have access to the currently not released 2.20 you'll need to
compile the branch stable/2.20 from the ly-git-repository. To do so
you need guilev1.
Though, isn't guile-1.8 available via synaptic?
At least for me, running Ubuntu 18.04 64-bit, it is...
Ofcourse this may be different for newer Ubuntu-versions or other OS...

I have Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS and an `apt search` does not turn up guile-1.8. Do you have a custom PPA?

apt-cache policy | grep http | awk '{print $2 $3}' | sort -u

Not like it matters too much, since instructions have already been posted for obtaining and building guilev1 manually.
