The default PDF viewer in GNOME is evince. Unfortunately,
point-and-click does not work by default with the gedit/evince
combination, in part because IIRC gedit does not support placing the
cursor on both coordinates, only the line. A combination that is known
to work is Sun JRE + jEdit + LilyPondTool. There are others, please
refer to the documentation for clues on how to install the textedit
protocol etc.
