Take a look at NtEd, by Joerg Anders who also wrote (most of) NoteEdit. 
It can export Lilypond.

Another very interesting tool is Frescobaldi. This is not a WYSIWYG 
score editor, but a dedicated KDE4 based Lilypond sourcecode editor with 
integrated PDF viewer and MIDI input via a tool called rumor. 

NtEd is available on the Fedora repos - just do "yum install nted".

Frescobaldi needs to be built from sources. And you need to 
install the kdebase and kdegraphics packages from fedora also.

Take a look at http://www.frescobaldi.org
