I assume you're curious about the official film studio distributions. When silent films were originally distributed to theaters they were sometimes sent with a phonograph record, occasionally with a music folio, but most often with just a cue sheet. But buy or rent a vintage silent film vhs or dvd today and you won't find any cue sheets. Pianists at festivals generally wing it these days.

I don't know of any source that catalogs the original silent film cues sheets but there are a few collectors who hunt them down and probably know that kind of thing. Try and google either Fredrick Hodges or Timothy Brock.

I doubt that there was any official distribution of Scott Joplin music for any silent film. Scott Joplin was never much more than an obscure composer other than the Maple Leaf Rag, which he may not have written, even in his lifetime. There may have been ragtimers who played his music as accompaniment to Chaplin's films.

Chaplin wrote music for his films himself, the most famous of his melodies being Smile.

I have dvds of Charlie Chaplin shorts with Scott Joplin's music as the soundtrack. They play all of his well-known works, really.
