I am a relatively new lyx user and this is my first post so please forgive

I ve searched for at least 3 hours to give myself the answer to the
subject's question and there are two possible scenarios : either it is kind
of trivial to install new packages to lyx and therefore i couldn't find any
answer or i did find it but i wasn't able to make it work !!!

The whole story began when i found out an outstanding package on CTAN for my
work, called hep(high energy physics) which promised to let me use Feynman
slashed characters and many more. But then i dealt with that horrible
problem! How to do it work properly and use it through the lyx menus like
all other stuff preinstalled in lyx??? And in general, what do i have to do
in order to install a new package and make it work as if it were
preinstalled in lyx?

I'm afraid that this is not in general possible---unless you want to write the source code yourself and contribute it to LyX, which of course would be welcome. That is to say: Every package that LyX natively supports, it supports only because someone wrote the code that makes LyX support it. To get the various particle names to display properly, for example, the names have to be added to the unicodesymbols file, together with code points in various fonts, etc. So it's not a trivial matter at all.
