The problem is that LilyPond is not providing any extra space between the notes that have the glissando between them, and so the gliss marking is very small. It would be worth raising this with the LilyPond developers if it is not already in their list of enhancement requests. Meanwhile you have to provide the space yourself:
Put the cursor on the note that the gliss ends on and displace it horizontally to give room for a sufficiently clear gliss marking (by choosing Notes/Rests->Displace Horizontally). A value of 3 for the displacement might suit you.
I'll add to the Help text for the gliss command to make it clear what to do.
This bug is set to "Private" - any idea why? What is the effect of that?

Hello Richard et al

Sorry to bother you:  I can't add a glissando marking.  I tried Notes/rests>Markings>Text/symbol> glissando, the "gliss" symbol appears in the Denemo window, and even the Lilypond window has "\glissando" appended to the note, but nothing appears in the print preview window.  I exported as PDF, and there seems to be a VERY small gliss line visible when i zoom in a few hundred %. 

So, my question is: how to adjust this gliss line so that it is visible?  How can i move it either above the 2 notes, (i.e. the same position a slur would be) or make extra space between the two notes? 

I am attaching the score:

The glissando should be between the D# and the G#, first two notes in measure 18.
