I've just recently installed 8.04 so I cannot confirm or deny. I know there were issues with newer qt4 packages and LyX. You could search the archive for this info, if I remember correctly the fix was to either downgrade qt4 or upgrade LyX. To install LyX from source please reference this very recent post: http://firstname.lastname@example.org/msg65435.html Cheers, /Bob
