I'm trying to work with a custom .cls file and having trouble getting it
working. This is under Lyx 2.0.0 and Windows 7
The relevant files can be found attached to this forum post:
I put the .cls under C:\Users\max\AppData\Roaming\MiKTeX\2.9\tex\latex
and ran texhash
I put the .layout under C:\Program Files (x86)\LyX20\Resources\layouts
Note that I made this .layout file from instructions I found on the web,
so it may be the problem.
When I compile under LyX, I get "Undefined control sequence" errors on
basically every command defined in the .cls (\prevdegrees, \department,
etc). But, I do believe LyX has found my .cls, because when the .cls
wasn't in the right place, I got errors about not being able to find it.
Additionally, when the compiled directly through pdflatex, it seems to
work fine. When viewing the log output when compiled with TeXworks, I
see the following line in the log
But when viewing the log output by LyX, I don't see that line there and
I see this instead
