Apparently, the problem is that the version of pmwiki we have doesn't
like the version of PHP we have. So the former needs to be upgraded. I
think Christian was hoping to get to it this weekend.


I had this one once, if the problem is that you have php5, I remember setting

It depends how you define optimal. Not optimal from hard drive free space.

However people here are asking how to start using git and take a few
first steps. Immediately they are fed by subtleties which will
bring error messages which are hard to understand.

It seems to me absurd that people who are not sure how to commit or
even use ssh keys are adviced to read about git internals or play
with git remote.

Re: LyX on Windows with UNC home directories

Dear LyX users and developers,

LyX has a problem with Windows users that have their home directory on a UNC 
path. http://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/Troubleshooting mentions these problems for Lyx 
1.5 already. (Recent versions do start, but have no classes available.)

I have been struggling with this for a long time. The workaround described in 
the link (saving some steps by running configure.py directly from the 
AppData\Lyx2.0 folder) worked for me on Windows XP.

Now, on Windows 7, it does not work anymore. Today, I have done some 
experiments but unfortunately not found a solution yet.
What I have found out is that

-  Under local users, LyX states ~\AppData\Roaming\Lyx2.0 as the user 
directory. I have not seen the tilde on Windows before, but it works.

-  Under network users, it states 
\\server\user\ntdata\Anwendungsdaten\LyX2.0file:///\\server\user\ntdata\Anwendungsdaten\LyX2.0
 as the user directory.

-  Running reconfigure from LyX as the network user gives some messages 
in the status line that can be traced back to the fact that cmd.exe does not 
accept UNC folders.

Is there any way to reliably make LyX run as a user with a UNC home directory? 
Could it help to just give LyX a different user directory to work in? If so, 
how can that be done?

I think this issue really needs to be fixed soon - People with home directories 
on serves are not uncommon and LyX is practically unusable for them.

Matthias



Hi Matthias,

Thanks for the descriptive report of the problem and your investigation 
of it.


Please, could you add a ticket to the bug tracker at 
http://www.lyx.org/trac/wiki/BugTrackerHome with as much information as 
you can. Your email already is very descriptive of your investigation, 
it would help to have this recorded on the bug tracker until someone 
tries to tackle the bug.


I'm also cc'ing the dev list to see if anyone has any immediate ideas.

Regards,
Julien

Yeah, but GSoC is always a very big opportunity for a project like this.

There are a number of organizations that might be interesting for LyX 
hackers and enthusiasts:


docbook (improve LyX docbook export)
libreoffice (improve import/export converters, maybe to/from word)
sage, sympy (open source computer algebra system integration in LyX)
inkscape, scribus (well, I'll just list those here because our users 
often use these as well)


Also maybe a LyX project could still be possible through the google open 
source programs office, although I have no idea how they select students.

Julien
