Are these packages installed by default in the normal LyX
setups (such as on a recent Fedora Linux)?


If not, how should one install the packages?  Are there any
other side-effects to the packages?


From within xfig, do you need to both select the text field
as special and select it to use the latex-font?


I just "use it" on Windows :-)

Hopefully someone else will answer your questions...
