2. Configure other editors
IIUC, lilypond-invoke editors is set up to work well with emacs, gvim and nedit, in that I can simply write:


and this will be translated to:

emacsclient --no-wait +%(line)s:%(column)s %(file)s

Now what if I want to use a different editor?
I did it in the past with Frescobaldi (to get point-and-clcik from an external PDF), but I cannot remember how. I'm now trying gedit, which does support opening a file in a certain point.

I've tried the following but none works:

LYEDITOR=gedit # this will open gedit but not in the desired line:column LYEDITOR=`gedit +%(line)s:%(column)s %(file)s` # this is not correct syntax, as 'source ~/.bashrc' complains

I've now found this in scm/editor.scm

(define editor-command-template-alist
'(("emacs" . "emacsclient --no-wait +%(line)s:%(column)s %(file)s || (emacs +%(line)s:%(column)s %(file)s&)")
   ("gvim" . "gvim --remote +:%(line)s:norm%(column)s %(file)s")
   ("uedit32" . "uedit32 %(file)s -l%(line)s -c%(char)s")
   ("nedit" . "nc -noask +%(line)s %(file)s")
   ("gedit" . "gedit +%(line)s %(file)s")
   ("jedit" . "jedit -reuseview %(file)s +line:%(line)s")
   ("syn" . "syn -line %(line)s -col %(char)s %(file)s")
   ("lilypad" . "lilypad +%(line)s:%(char)s %(file)s")))

So this should be sufficient:


But it doesn't work, as it always jump to the first line of music, no matter what you click on PDF. And it launches a new gedit window every time you click on the PDF.
Also, it should be rewritten to specify the column as well:

("gedit" . "gedit +%(line)s:%(column)s %(file)s")

If I want to use another editor it should be added in that file?
Or can I set the LYEDITOR variable somehow?
