4.6.1 Installing LilyPond from a local build
If you configured
make to install your local build in a
directory where you normally have write permission (such as your
home directory), and you have compiled LilyPond by running
make, you can install the program in your target
directory by running:
If instead, your installation directory is not one that you can
normally write to (such as the default /usr/local/, which
typically is only writeable by the supernotation), you will need to
temporarily become the supernotation when running
sudo make install
su -c 'make install'
If you don’t have supernotation privileges, then you need to configure the installation directory to one that you can write to, and then re-install. See Configuring target directories.
