## It can not be installed

download lilypond executable .exe but when adding the path of that file in localsentigs.php when loading the site everything was fine but when I inserted it <score lang = "ABC">

X: 1

M: C

L: 1/4

K: C

C, D, E, F, | G, A, B, C | D E F G | A B c d |

e f g a | b c 'd' e '| f' g 'a' b '|]

</ score>

and save the changes shows me this error

LilyPond failed to run: /$IP/images/lilypond/lilypond-2.19.82-1.mingw.exe is not an executable file. Make sure$ wgScoreLilyPond is set correctly.

You probably have

$wgScoreLilyPond = '$IP/images/lilypond/lilypond-2.19.82-1.mingw.exe';


when you should have

$wgScoreLilyPond = "$IP/images/lilypond/lilypond-2.19.82-1.mingw.exe";


(Note the quotes.)

I would not put the binary in my images directory, either.

It still does not work, I put it with "and the executable file I put it in a lilypond folder inside the extension score but it still does not work.

What is the error message now?

the same as above

If it is still failing with LilyPond failed to run: /$IP/images/lilypond/lilypond-2.19.82-1.mingw.exe is not an executable file, then could you copy the line here that you are using for$wgScoreLilyPond?

$wgScoreLilyPond =$IP/extensions/Score/lilypond/lilypond-2.18.82-1.mingw.exe

You need to use quotes:

 $wgScoreLilyPond = "$IP/extensions/Score/lilypond/lilypond-2.18.82-1.mingw.exe"

I tried it like that but I still got that error:

LilyPond could not be executed: /home/surtico/public_html/laramaazul/wiki/extensions/Score/lilypond/lilypond-2.18.82-1.mingw.exe is not an executable file. Make sure that \$ wgScoreLilyPond is aesthetically defined correctly.

You are using the Windows version on a Linux host. You will need the Linux version.

## Unable to compile LilyPond input file

Hi, when I test the example <score>\relative c' { f d f a d f e d cis a cis e a g f e }</score> , got this error:

I can't solve it. Could you give me some help?

My wiki need to use this great extension.

Hi JoesSR,

                I am also facing same issue. Have you relosved this issue?

Aqui parese-me tudo correto, porém tenho o erro:

Código:

<score vorbis="1" lang="lilypond">\relative c' { c d e f g a b} </score>

Algém sabe qual é o problema?

email: mazera2@gmail.com

Had the same issue. I think it's due to a bug with Lilypond 2.18 (the one still advertised at lilypond.org) but that has been fixed on a more recent version. In the end the commands I used to install the latest Lilypond were:

curl -o lilypond.sh http://download.linuxaudio.org/lilypond/binaries/linux-64/lilypond-2.19.52-1.linux-64.sh
sh lilypond.sh


I have a very similar problem, I am using Ubuntu 18.10 and Lilypond 2.19.82

Has anyone an idea? Thanks for help

￼I can add a title when using ABC notation, but I cat add it when using LilyPond, How can I solve this problem when using LilyPond?

Examples:￼

ABC notation:￼

Unable to convert ABC file to LilyPond format:
/usr/bin/abc2ly from LilyPond 2.18.2
Parsing .../file.abc'...
Line ... .../file.abc: 6: Huh?  Don't understand


LilyPond:￼

ABC notation:

## Broken

1

At this moment, <score>...</score> is completely broken – it doesn't render anything, instead it displays the source code.

## Noisy output

5

The Vorbis player output is noisy, producing what sounds like static crackle and stuttering at the beginning of playback. I tried all the examples shown on this Talk page, and every one of them behaves the same way. Curiously, if I pause the playback and then resume it, the sound comes out cleanly, without the static or stutter. Is this a problem with the Vorbis player implementation, or is there a problem in the LilyPond notation conversion to .ogg format? I'm accessing the player with a Linux machine, if that means anything.

I have the same problem on Windows XP.

and on mac os x 10.10.5 also. Any news?

I downloaded the ogg file and opened it in Audacity sound editor. The problem is in the ogg file, not in the player. The crackle is only in the right channel.

I think you're noticing what I reported this in phab:T50029 "crackling at start of OGG renditions of MIDI files." The bug in the third-party TiMidity software that generates the audio file. It was fixed years ago in a newer version, TiMidity++ 2.14.0, but the Linux distribution that the Wikimedia Foundation uses doesn't ship the fixed version :-( . Instead the extension switched to using Fluidsynth to generate the audio file (phab:T181897).

What's interesting is the crackling noise is still present in the sample on Extension:Score and on some of my old user pages, but not if I copy that score tag to a new page and preview there. It seems Mediawiki aggressively caches the generated audiofile for years!? I wonder if there's a way to invalidate all the generated .ogg audio files in some cache.

## Abc2Ly + D-sharp minor = problem

Hello! See:

<score lang="ABC">K:D#m
D E F G A B c d | d c B A G F E D|</score>

convert to ("es" instead of "is"):

\key dis \minor   des'8    ees'8    f'8    ges'8    aes'8    bes'8    ces''8
des''8    \bar "|"   des''8    ces''8    bes'8    aes'8    ges'8    f'8
ees'8    des'8  \bar "|"


Result:

Other keys are OK. Please, fix this. Thank you!

## Installing problems on 1.28.2 MediaWiki

Hi,

I've tried to install Score extension on MediaWiki Ver. 1.28.2, I've Uploaded the extension, and created the folders as it needs (with the right permissions), (also made all LocalSetting.php add-lines). when I'm try to run the extension, I get wgScoreLilyPond` alert (Unrunable). Is it because I need to install LilyPond first? and if so, where can I get a LilyPond extension install link?

Thanks Alot!
