I was tired and hungary when I did it, and while I remember using a terminal command, I have not the slightest memeory of how I did it.
Exactly how would I check? So far this morning I have tried something like apt-cache showpkg qt4 (& qt4.5, 4.6 and so on ) and get nothing apt-cache showpkg qt5.6 gets a hit even though I thought I'd removed it. I read the Release Notes and originally thought that installing qt5.6 would be a good idea and then read what seemed to be some caveats that seemed to suggest that installing qt5.6 after installing LyX2.2.0 might cause problems. So I thought I'd better get rid of it. A quick look at /usr/share/ shows I have both qt4 and qt5 (apparently qt5.6 since that is the folder label and the name I used in the apt-get install command I am not exacty Linux fluent. (I possibly speak pidgin Linux?) Can someone provide detailed instructions or a pointer to a decent cheatsheet that would show me how to figure out what version of qt LyX is using please? Thanks for all the help and support.
