Many of the packages in the Belenos repository are outdated and I've had to
install programs without the package manager. For the most part this is less
convenient but not a huge problem. However, I am a beginner and the messiness
of doing everything manually is starting to get a little complicated for me.
Both Frescobaldi and Lilypond 2.16.2 are in the repository but, I would like
to use Lilypond 2.18.2 instead. I installed the latest version from the
Lilypond website, but Frescobaldi only recognizes version 2.16.2, which the
package manager requires as a dependency for Frescobaldi. Is there a way to
force the repository's version of Frescobaldi to use the current version of
Lilypond, or will I need to build Frescobaldi myself.
Being a beginner, I suspect that there is a smarter way of upgrading/updating
programs. I actually thought that the point of the package manager was to do
this automatically, until I noticed how many packages are older versions. Am
I just using it incorrectly?
