Hi Tanguy,

thank you so much for the info.
I've been looking for a lightweight editor for some time (I'm currently
using Gedit and the embedded terminal, but Geany seems better and

I've tried to set it up but it's not working.
I've downloaded the svn version:

aptitude install subversion
svn co geany
cd geany
sudo make install

Fine so far.

Then I launched Geany and opened Tool>>Configuration

I've added the line:

and saved in ~/.config/geany/filetype_extensions.conf

Then I created the file ~/.config/geany/filedefs/filetypes.lilypond
(see the attached file, very basic... if you want to share your file I'd
be curious)

I've closed and launched again Geany, but there is not any new filetype
in Document>>Set filetype>>Custom filetypes
And if I open a .ly file Geany does not understand it's a LilyPond file.

I'm surely missing something.
Can you help me?
