The following instructions were tested on ‘OpenSUSE 13.2’ and will download all the software required to both compile LilyPond and build the documentation.
- Add the sources repository;
sudo zypper addrepo -f \ "http://download.opensuse.org/source/distribution/13.2/repo/oss/" sources
- Download and install all the LilyPond build-dependencies (approximately
sudo zypper source-install lilypond
- Download and install additional ‘build’ tools required for compiling;
sudo zypper install make
- 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 zypper 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 zypper 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.
