Another possibility, run lyx as
   lyx 2>&1 | tee -a /tmp/lyx-$USER.log
then if you need to see what lyx is thinking, run
   tail -f  /tmp/lyx-$USER.log
or if you need to know what lyx was thinking you can run something like
   gedit /tmp/lyx-$USER.log

This may be better if you don't want to clutter your panel with
windows you probably won't use (or if you may need to know what LyX
was thinking a while back).

The downside is that the log will grow and grow and won't be
automatically cleared until Ubuntu cleans out /tmp on a restart.
However, even a reconfigure only adds 15k to the log so it is unlikely
to grow very large.
