A couple of months ago a power surge fried my laptop. I now have a new laptop with a dual-boot Ubuntu 12.04 / Windows 7 setup. Lyx 2.0.3, Firefox 14.01 with Lyz 2.1.4 & Zotero 3.0.8 .
Since then I have not been doing anything with LyX and just noticed that I cannot sent citations from Zotero to Lyx. I have tried setting the path using: ubuntu /home/john/lyx/.lyxpipe /home/john/.lyxpipe Windows \\.\pipe\lyxpipe I am very new to Linux and thought my path might be wrong but the \\.\pipe\lyxpipe has worked for me n previous 1.6.7 and 2.x.x in Windows. Error message starts out as: "Exception ...component returned failure code 0x8052001" (Ubuntu and either same or similar under windows and continued on to say "Could not contact server at \\.\pipe\lyxpipe. Just as a precaution I have done a reconfigure and rebooted LyX after each path change in Ubuntu and Windows. Any suggestions on where I'm going wrong? I should point out that I don't seem to be having any problem with Openoffice.org 3.0.3 under Windows or with LibreOffice 188.8.131.52 with Zotero. Thanks.
