Oh, heck. I broke the regular export of the one-page at a time PDF
when I added my copier for the 4 sheets on one page.

Details below, please advise.

When this finally seemed to work, I was so happy.  However, I see now
I've broken the pdf export.

The weird thing is that LyX asks me if I want to replace the old pdf
version, and I say yes, it still does not get copied.

Just now, I worked on lecture notes and exported to PDF(Beamer). I end up with
-rw-r--r--  1 337226 Mar  2 00:57 Regression-MultipleInputs-lecture-2-2x2.pdf
-rw-r--r--  1  56429 Mar  2 00:55 Regression-MultipleInputs-lecture-2.lyx
-rw-r--r--  1543209 Sep 29 12:17 Regression-MultipleInputs-lecture-2.pdf

I do get the 4 slides on 1 page output, the one with 2x2 on the end.
The lyx file is saved, but last semester's pdf is stuck there.

Here's what I'm using now.

In .lyx/preferences, I add:

\format "pdf5" "pdf" "PDF (Beamer)" "" "evince" "" "document,vector,menu=export"

\converter "pdflatex" "pdf5" "pdflatex $$i" "latex=pdflatex"

\copier pdf5 "pdfcopier.sh \"$$i\" \"$$o\""

And here's "pdfcopier.sh"

#!/bin/bash
INFILE="$1";
pdfnup --nup 2x2  --frame true --suffix '2x2' --batch "$INFILE";

Inside LyX, I can Export to PDF(Beamer) and it does export the file
with the 2x2 format, and the name is set correctly.
.
What do you think?
