My name is Greg and I have been a Lyx user for some time now.  I am running
Ubuntu 8.04 and LyX version 1.5.3.  I am trying to get started using BibTex
in Lyx, but I am running into some problems.  The citations only come up as
[?] in my documents when I generate pdf's from Lyx.  So far, here is what I
have done: I have set the BIBINPUTS and BSTINPUTS environment variables to
the folder where I keep my bib files.  I created a Bibtex file and inserted
it into Lyx with Insert-->List/TOC-->BibTex Bibliography.  A gray box
appears in my document that says "BibTeX Generated Bibliography", and when I
go to put in citations, the keys that I have in my bibtex file appear, and I
can put in citations that are in the .bib file. However, when I click the
generate pdf button, the citations only come up as [?] in the document.   I
suspect that my problem may be that my TEXINPUTS variable is not set.  I am
not sure what to set it to.  I believe the Latex packages I have installed
are texlive.  Could you possibly help me get Bibtex working? Thank you so
Gregory Toole
