I'm using Lyx 1.6.3, built from source, on Ubuntu 8.04. I recently
installed a new version of latex (texlive) in a different place from
where the old one was, but I can't figure out how to get Lyx to
recognize it. All of the packages it lists in Preferences->TeX
Configuration are from the old installation, and it won't compile when
I use packages from the new configuration.
Thanks in advance for your help.
If you are keeping the old LaTeX version around as well, you might want
to check out Ubuntu's update-alternatives command (check the man page or
google it). I've only used it for Java, but it should be possible to
use it to make the new TeXLive install the default choice. Then run
latex --version just to confirm the newer LaTeX is being chosen, after
which try reconfiguring and restarting LyX.
If the new version is already the default choice, you may just need the
last step (reconfigure/restart LyX).
