It's good to see one of the earlier collaborators of eLyXer back.

Good, it is the preferred method.

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]

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.

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...
