Josh, Thank you for the info. Note that 2.0.4 is different from 2.0. Also, it's better if we respond to the list. That way others can view the discussion and can offer advice.
Did you install the etoolbox package? Don't forget to do tool>reconfigure after you install so that LyX learns about the new package.

Josh From: Scott Kostyshak [mailto:skost...@princeton.edu] Sent: Saturday, July 28, 2012 8:42 PM To: Josh Britt; firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: RE: writing a vita with Modern Hi Josh, Please always send the operating system and LyX version that you are using whenever your report a problem (even if you think it has nothing to do with the problem). etoolbox.sty is missing. That means you might need to install it (the alternative is that it is installed but it is not being found). The package is located here: http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/etoolbox/ I don't know how you install packages in MiKTeX but it might be easier for you to install it from MiKTeX instead of doing it manually. Also, modernCV.lyx has been changed recently. Maybe those changes will fix your problem. Here is the most recent version of modernCV.lyx http://www.lyx.org/trac/browser/lyxgit/lib/examples/modernCV.lyx You can see the changes here: http://www.lyx.org/trac/log/lyxgit/lib/examples/modernCV.lyx Scott ________________________________ From: email@example.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> [email@example.com] on behalf of Josh Britt [joshbrit...@gmail.com] Sent: Saturday, July 28, 2012 9:19 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com> Subject: writing a vita with Modern Hi, I am getting an error when I try to view as pdf.
