qterminal is installed and lilydev.desktop is present, though I've
never seen it executed.

On second thought, leave them out, would increase diskspace even more.
Not worth it.

As a general off-topic side-note, I'm pretty annoyed by a lot of "up
to date" software.
It's often colorful/rich of features, yes, but very often without
further functionality. More annoying if there is no possibility to
switch such things off or having to search hours how to do it.
Those things are eating up my diskspace (I don't have much), nothing else.
I loved old Ubuntu 10.04 and kept it until it was impossible to
compile LilyPond with its ancient gcc-version.

Now I'm on Ubuntu 16.04 with cinnamon-desktop, which helps a bit, but
the perfomance is stil not as good as it was back with Ubuntu 10.04.
Which reminds of the sluggishness of LilyPond with guile-2.0.13 ...
