To install a converter you need to install the external program (e.g.,
as you would install LyX or LibO). For elyxer [1] follow its
installation instructions, for latex2rtf [2]. Then reconfigure LyX.
(If you made modifications to your prefs---converters and file
handling---, you may want to start over with a fresh prefs file, just
to make sure that you didn't break anything.)
