The menu items are installed using

    # FIXME: How to create a nice LilyPond submenu?
    installDesktop "Applications/Music/Notation/LilyPond" 
    installDesktop "Applications/Music/Notation/LilyPond" 
    installDesktop "Applications/Music/Notation/LilyPond" 
    installDesktop "Applications/Music/Notation/LilyPond" 
    installDesktop "Applications/Music/Notation/LilyPond" 

What happens if you edit the menu item, and prepend file:// to the
URL, something like:

Is the Emacs editor installed?  What happens if you add

    export LYEDITOR=gedit

to your ~/.bash_profile, and do a fresh login to gnome again?
