Fear not. You can run everything using "python -m elyxer" just as "elyxer.py". I have modified the User Guide to include some examples, starting with the generic command line: $ python -m elyxer [options] [source file] [destination file] > Hope that Alex "elyxer" Fernandez or someone using the "elegantly installed" > elyxer can answer to my question, what python -m elyxer is for… I will also answer it in the User Guide: you are running eLyXer as a Python module, which means that you don't need to know its location on your system. > Yes, I had been one of the first users of elyxer on Mac (mentioned friendly > by Alex in the "Acknowledgments").

You are a patient and intelligent collaborator; I am eagerly waiting for any input from you. By the way, maybe you could kindly request BH, the Mac OS X maintainer for LyX, to include eLyXer in his installer. I corresponded with him earlier on and his main concern was maintainability of eLyXer; hopefully now that the Windows alt installer and Debian are distributing eLyXer he will be more willing to do it; his is the only major platform where eLyXer is not distributed at all. Of course there are all the other Linux distributions (besides Debian) as well... Alex.
