Hello again, I've looked some more into this. I still can't get DVI
reverse search configured under linux. These are the results:

The following works with LyX 1.6.1 on my Mac OS X machine:

echo "LYXCMD:clientid:server-goto-file-row:filenameandpath.lyx 43" > .lyxpipe.in

(moves the cursor, just like it should to row 43 in the open lyx-document)

Under Linux (LyX 1.6.1) it won't. Instead of moving to the correct
line the cursor keeps jumping to the first line. Is this as bug in the
Linux version or am I doing something wrong? I've tried piping other
commands than "server-goto-file-row" and these seem to work without
