I am by no means a LaTeX expert -0 so I might be wrong, but - the
LaTeX error messages are already quite cryptic, and the error you
quote (Missing } inserted' error for 'l.1052') means that the
missing "}" is inserted in this line - where it is actually
missing and what is causing this does not even LaTeX know - so
there is no chance that LyX will be able to tell you.
True, but the line number associated with a LaTeX error is a useful
clue when fault-finding and being able to quickly move the cursor to
the corresponding line in LyX could make fixing broken documents much
quicker in many situations.  The compilation pane could display a
caveat next to buttons for moving the cursor between error line
numbers saying something like 'the root cause of this error may not
lie at this location'.


That was the reason I was asking a while ago, whether the latex source panel (under >view) could show the tex line number. But I was told it is not possible under lyx.
