Precompiled, I don't know, but you can usually install packages you
compile yourself to local directories by setting the PREFIX variable:
./configure --prefix=/home/gphilip/. This will install LyX into
/home/gphilip/bin, /home/gphilip/share/, etc. You'll also need to set
some environment variables, I believe, so that the libraries will be
found, if you have to install any dependencies, but those can be handled
the same way.
I have no root permission on my Linux machine, and I would like to
install LyX1.5.x on it. Is there a way to get precompiled binaries for
Lyx1.5.x that can be installed in my home directory without root
permissions, and which has all the dependencies built in to it?
That said, perhaps it's easier to get root to install LyX for you.
