I'm using LyX 1.6.7 on xubuntu 10.10 and I'm as satisfied as for the

Actually I have a little problem:
I like to have the path to the document at the end of my documents.
So I've created a little python script giving me the end (because my
file system tree is quite deep) of the path, accordingly I have defined
an alias pdflatex="pdflatex -shell-escape" to permit the use of this
script from within the latex source of my document.
This doesn't work for lyx. I suppose lyx calls pdflatex using its
absolute path. To find the place where this default is set I've been
looking in ~/.lyx/preferences, /usr/share/lyx, ~/.config/Lyx, ~/.gconf,
~/.gconfig with no result.
So, can somebody gice me a hint where the default paths for the
converter calls are hidden?
Your interpretation sounds correct. You can change the converter line in
Tools > Settings > File Handling > Converters (look for LaTeX -> PDF
I would suggest to use \jobname in ERT if possible instead of calling a
python script for this.
Similarly, I would like to use '.' as the default path for saving new
lyx documents. Changing the corresponding setting in the menu
tools>settings>paths>home (retranslated from my german version of
lyx) I can change that location but the change is not remembered when I
open lyx the next time.
Any ideas on this?
hmm, not sure. this might be a bug.
