Yes, as I have found out.

Your choices still make no difference (screen mode on a portrait page). 

Regarding the reqs. for powerdot... those should be in place if the
Debian packager has their stuff together.  That seems to be the case,
since I have found that a simple export to plain latex, followed by runs
through latex, dvips, and ps2pdf, work perfectly (xpdf and acroread).

I still am led to believe that something in LyX's script must have
options in it which cause the failure to create this.

I do appreciate your help!
