Linux; LilyPond(latest-version)---lilypond-2.24.3-linux-x86_64.tar.gz--- install to WSL(Linux=Ubuntu[22.04.3 LTS])
The latest distribution of lilypond requires you to install it yourself.
         Windows OS download-file is Usually the file is stored here (C:\Users\Your's Name\Downloads\........)
Do download   lilypond-2.24.3-linux-x86_64.tar.gz
Downloaded file   C:\Users\Your's Name\Downloads\lilypond-2.24.3-linux-x86_64.tar.gz
Please avoid moving this lilypond-2.24.3-linux-x86_64.tar.gz to the Ubnutu environment using explorer.exe (though you can actually do that).

Execute from Linux side.(Your's home;; \\wsl.localhost\Ubuntu-22.04\home\Your's name )
Example;                 • Your's Name:~$ cp /mnt/c/Users/Your--Name/Downloads/lilypond-2.24.3-linux-x86_64.tar.gz ./ [Enter]
You can See ===>Your's Name:~$ .....That there is "lilypond-2.24.3-linux-x86_64.tar.gz"
DO; Expand this;   • Your's Name:~$ tar xvfz lilypond-2.24.3-linux-x86_64.tar.gz[Enter]

This is my home page(Figure 2) with everything done, I will explain based on this.
The running package file for ---"lilypond-2.24.3"--- will appear as shown in Figure 2.
------- Below: Running configuration work for lilypond-2.24.3 Figure-2:
------- The First row shows /home/yukio/ with all the work done.
------- The Second row shows /home/yukio/bin/
------- The Third row is the display in /home/yukio/lilypond-2.24.3/

First of all
---As an example--- First, let's check the PATH that Ubnutu calls at startup.
[picture of My phote]
The search starts here(/home/yukio/bin:/.....). If there is a command specified in this bin, it will be executed immediately (no matter what is in the PATH description later)
However: This "bin" does not exist in [yukio] from the beginning. Create it yourself --- and Ubuntu will recognize it.
( Your's name:~$ mkdir bin[Enter]) Example; yukio@book3:~$ mkdir bin[Enter]...... "bin" is empty (files are stateless.)

  Figure 2(....This is my screen after all the construction is completed.)。
[picture of My phote]
Your name:~$ To make bin look like the second row of the above(Figure 2) ---to put lilypond/bin/files into bin in a runnable manner.---
Do the following:
First, let's take a look at the "executable files"(commands) provided in lilypond-2.24.3/bin/.....
[picture of My phote]
Please compare the second row of Figure-2 with the above image.
      ----The second row of Figure-2 is actually a symbolic link file.----
The next step is to create this symbolic link file in your bin.
Your name:~$ cd bin[Enter]
"Your name:~/bin$" is now current working location.      ----Let's start creating symbolic link files.----
  • Your name:~/bin$ ln -s ../lilypond-2.24.3/bin/abc2ly ./[Enter]
  • Your name:~/bin$ ln -s ../lilypond-2.24.3/bin/convert-ly ./[Enter]
  • Your name:~/bin$ ln -s ../lilypond-2.24.3/bin/etf2ly ./[Enter]
  • Your name:~/bin$ ln -s ../lilypond-2.24.3/bin/lilymidi ./[Enter]
  • Your name:~/bin$ ln -s ../lilypond-2.24.3/bin/lilypond ./[Enter]
  • Your name:~/bin$ ln -s ../lilypond-2.24.3/bin/lilypond-book ./[Enter]
  • Your name:~/bin$ ln -s ../lilypond-2.24.3/bin/lilypond-invoke-editor ./[Enter]
  • Your name:~/bin$ ln -s ../lilypond-2.24.3/bin/lilysong ./[Enter]
  • Your name:~/bin$ ln -s ../lilypond-2.24.3/bin/midi2ly ./[Enter]
  • Your name:~/bin$ ln -s ../lilypond-2.24.3/bin/musicxml2ly ./[Enter]
Once you're done, run "ls -lX" and you should see the same display as the second row of "Figer 2".
Your name:~/bin$ cd ../[Enter]
Your name:~$ lilypond[Enter] Displays how to use lilypond.
It should take some time at first as lilypond searches for fonts on your PC and cash-saves them.
This is an additional description
•Even if you do---"$ sudo apt install lilypond[Enter] (version 2.22.2)"---the above version 2.24.3 is better. running (version 2.22.2 is ignored).
             ----If you run "Your name:~$ mv bin new-bin[Enter]" (if you remove it from /home/Your name/bin) running will be version 2.22.2 ----

• Installing texlive from install-tl-unx.tar.gz takes a long time. After everything is done again Add a symbolic link under the /usr/local/bin directory yourself.
             ( creating symbolic link  ----- Do by yourself;$ sudo /usr/local/texlive/????/bin/*/tlmgr path add[Enter] ----- )

• Once "$ sudo apt install texlive[Enter]" has finished, running is OK

• "WSL 2" is completely an environment for developers (and system engineers). I think general users using Windows Home will find it difficult to use. m(_ _)m
