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?

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.

That said, perhaps it's easier to get root to install LyX for you.
