Even better news (for me): finally I can launch Frescobaldi 2, the
problem explained here is solved somehow (maybe some update of Debian
It looks nice, I'll use it as my default lily editor from now on, even
though I'll miss some features (mainly midi playing and some editor
features like line numbers and the folding/unfolding of sections).
Wait, now point-and-click is "two way" (from source to pdf also), cool!
