When I try with 1.7.3 on Ubuntu 9.10, I don't even get that far. It just
I am not set up to compile the old "Classic" code, and I have no particular
idea why this is tanking. I assume it has something to do with Rosegarden
finding itself in an environment that's two or three generations more modern
than the one it was built for, but my quick investigation doesn't reveal
anything that allows me to be more specific than that.
For now, I recommend exporting to .ly files and processing them manually until
Rosegarden "Thorn" comes out. All of this functionality has been completely
rewritten from scratch for Thorn, and LilyPond processing *does* work for me
on Ubuntu 9.10. (The old external "helper scripts" were an unmaintainable
mess, and they've all been replaced with native internal code. There may well
be new bugs in all this brand new code, but the overall outcome should be much
better now, I hope.)

Something like that is usually a specific LilyPond export issue to look at
case by case. LilyPond export has always been an impressively complicated
business that's full of quirks like this. I'm afraid it will never be
perfect, but I'll be happy to look at the test case and see if I can think of
