I managed to make a modified version of my script work including 
point-and-click facility (well, sort of) using xpdf and gvim. But I have 
to hit "R" to reload a newly created pdf with Xpdf. And in gvim I have 
to hit a key to exit a message that appears now and then at the 
bottom of the screen. The less key- and mouseclicks I need to get what I 
want, the better.

I would like to be able to use acroread or evince if possible. I don't 
think the lilypond documentation is very clear on this subject. Only a 
short example tells me how to configure xpdf. There have been posts 
about this subject in the mailing list. But more help and examples in 
the documentation would be nice.

Another problem:

I have just installed Fedora 10 on a Asus EeePC 900 minilaptop. Also 
installed Lilypond and my script. Now I have a really lightweight 
scorewriter ! My script works well, with the window sizes edited to fit 
the small EeePC screen.

One problem: gv suddenly has a font problem since I installed this new 
Fedora. The fonts in the buttons and menus are MUCH to wide. When 
starting gv from a terminal I see an error message:

Warning: Cannot convert string 
"-*-Helvetica-Medium-R-Normal--*-140-*-*-P-*-ISO8859-1" to type FontStruct
Warning: Cannot convert string 
"-*-Helvetica-Medium-R-Normal--*-120-*-*-P-*-ISO8859-1" to type FontStruct
Warning: Cannot convert string

Warning: Cannot convert string 
"-*-Helvetica-Bold-R-Normal--*-120-*-*-P-*-ISO8859-1" to type FontStruct

I know, this is totally off topic in this mailing list. But I bumped 
into it when trying my lilypond edit script. And I know many lilyponders 
are smart people who might know a solution :-)
