For me, Forward/Reverse search only works with pdflatex.
For Xelatex I probably should enter with some custom configuration.  If anyone 
knows how to do it, please advise.

Even with pdflatex, reverse search works ok, but for Forward search the 
"--unique" specification is not obeyed.  Every time I want the jump LyX => PDF, 
a new instance of Okular is launched.
