I suppose you have to adjust your path settings. In your local profile file (~/.profile most probably), add the following (if the file does not exist yet, create it): # # Set some environment variables for TeX/LaTeX # export TEXMFCNF=/usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf/web2c:$TEXMFCNF export PATH=/usr/local/texlive/2011/bin/i386-linux:$PATH After relogin, LyX should find the right binaries. See also sec. 3.4.1 of the texlive manual: http://www.tug.org/texlive/doc/texlive-en/texlive-en.html I have created a symlink here from /usr/local/texlive/current to /usr/local/texlive/2011 and set all pathes to current instead of 2011. This way, I need only change the symlink after a distribution upgrade. HTH, Jürgen
