The following instructions were tested on ‘Fedora’ versions 22 & 23 and will download all the software required to both compile LilyPond and build the documentation.
- Download and install all the LilyPond build-dependencies (approximately
sudo dnf builddep lilypond --nogpgcheck
- Download and install additional ‘build’ tools required for compiling;
sudo dnf install autoconf gcc-c++
- Although not ‘required’ to compile LilyPond, if you intend to
contribute to LilyPond (codebase or help improve the documentation) then
it is recommended that you also need to install
sudo dnf install git
Also see Working with source code.
Note: By default, when building LilyPond’s documentation,
pdfTeX is used. However ligatures (fi, fl, ff, etc.) may not
be printed in the PDF output. In this case XeTeX can be used instead.
Download and install the
sudo dnf install texlive-xetex
The scripts used to build the LilyPond documentation will use XeTeX instead of pdfTeX to generate the PDF documents if it is available. No additional configuration is required.
