Hi Rich, I am on Kubuntu, but did not use its Debian-derived package system to upgrade Texlive. I went at it directly with the Texlive net installer. Installation was fine. Indeed, I am now using lyx to write, exporting the file to Latex, and then doing all my compilations either from the command line or from Kile. It is just Lyx that refuses to see the new installation. Perhaps I should trash the relevant config files in my ~/.lyx folder? Can anyone know which ones?
