Julio, David:

I do not have the ubuntu-provided install of texlive. However, I do
have 2 working texlive installs: the 2010 texlive and the 2011
texlive. I need to keep the older one around for a while until a book
I wrote with it is actually printed.
I have no problems from the command line. I just switch the paths
around in my .profile file. But I want to have texlive as the default,
so that all my new projects compile with the newer installation and
newer packages. Again, I can accomplush the task easily from the
command line, and pdflatex and companions work as expected.

It' s just Lyx that's giving me problems. A far I can tell, when I hit
reconfigure it finds the older 2010 installation and it stops there.
Is LyX using the PATH variable to search for executables? If so,
perhaps there is a config somewhere file that caches the results?
