Evince will likely need to be able to call emacsclient or something.
Ubuntu and apparmor are conspiring to make that hard.  Try looking at
for some inspiration of what kind of jiggery-pokery might be required to
get this to work.

The application/executable naming schemes of LilyPond are different from
that of Emacs/AUCTeX, but the kind of work needed for getting this off
the ground might be related, except for the stuff that is sent over
