hello all,
i want to change a few things in cmn's default font - i want straight 
flags that are slanted opposite the stem direction, kind of like the 
stockhausen UE scores from the early sixties - anyway, it seemed the 
easiest thing to do was hack the cmn-glyphs file and make a new font as 
per the instructions in make-font.cl. so i did that, but can't get cmn 
to display the new font. if i put the music-font name in as is, a la:
(cmn (music-font "bla")
      (staff treble, etc.
gv displays the resulting .eps with letters and other characters in 
place of the glyphs (i'm guessing this is some kind of gs fall-through 
when it can't find the font). if i supply a full path name for the font:
(cmn (music-font "/home/bsack/lisp/bla")
      (staff treble, etc.
gv displays the staff lines, then urps the following error:

Error: /undefined in -file-
Operand stack:

Execution stack:
    %interp_exit   .runexec2   --nostringval--  etc.

i don't know enough about postscript to figure this out ... has anyone 
had success using a user-defined font with cmn?
