[NTG-context] ConTeXt and LilyPond problem

Please, would you mind to answer these questions :

1) Are you running ConTeXt as "Standalone" or with another install with LaTeX ?
2) Is ConTeXt running under Linux or Windows ?
3) What is the example you've tried to test ?
4) Did you have created manually a "temp" file and a buffer as it is said within the Context Garden page : "This works with ConTeXt MkII and MkIV, but takes only the first page of multi-pages scores, and you must create the folder "lilytemp" manually" ?

Objet: [NTG-context] ConTeXt and LilyPond problem

Dear All, 

I am trying to get the combination of ConTeXt and LilyPond working. 
I copied the example that I found on http://wiki.contextgarden.net/LilyPond , changing the setups a little (I don't have the font Adobe Jenson Pro). 

Processing it with mkiv from april this year and earlier produces a pdf with both zapf texts and in between the text: [[output file missing. 

The log-file says: 
t-filter . cached output file 'lilytemp/LilyPond-ConTeXt-example-27-06-16-templilypond-0.pdf' missing. Rerunning filter 
sh: lilypond: command not found 
t-filter > file 'lilytemp/LilyPond-ConTeXt-example-27-06-16-templilypond-0.pdf' cannot be found 
Indeed there is no file lilytemp/LilyPond-ConTeXt-example-27-06-16-templilypond-0.pdf . 

With LilyPond.app itself, using TeXShop as the editor, I have no problems. (But I have never been able to get it working from Terminal, generating only messages like " cannot execute binary file " and " Permission denied " even after running sudo chmod u+x .) 

What can I do about it? 

Thanks in advance for tips and suggestions. 

Best regards, 
Robert Blackstone
