I have a problem in exporting a .rg file to LilyPond.
When I choose "preview with LilyPond" I get an error: LilyPond
I have installed LilyPond 2.11.57.
I am running fedora9.
Does anyone have a clue?

Do you get this error with one particular file, or with every file you try?
If it's one file, let's start with a copy of that file. (Send it to me
directly, or post to the list.) I'll look at it and see if I can find a
problem that's causing the export to fail.
If it's every file, let's start by taking a random file as our reference
point. It would be most convenient to use something standard from the
Rosegarden example files collection. Let's use lilypond-staff-groupings.rg
because that's short and fresh and definitely works here. Go to File ->
Export -> Export to LilyPond and export this to a named file somewhere.
From a command line, find the file you saved, and run lilypond on it by hand.
$ lilypond the_file_you_exported.ly
Paste a copy of the results, and I'll sift through them for clues.
