Re: about python3 and lyx

Actually both of those (just installed Anaconda yesterday for somebody) 
had for at least an year a Python 3 version. I would not say that there 
is no need felt to move over to Python 3, there's rather _resistance_ to 
moving over due to manifold retro-compatibility issues in many packages 
(which however have mostly been adapted by now). And LyX is no different.

Is there any real pressing need to move over to Python 3? I'm a pretty 
heavy python user and it just doesn't seem like the scientific 
community in general cares about it. I've actually never met anyone 
who runs anything in 3.  Two of the major python package managers 
(anaconda and canopy) either default to 2 or don't even support 3.

Re: Open File problem

2014-11-27 Thread Julio Rojas
Dear all,

My wife just told me that the problem is also present in 2.1.2.2. It
appears when a document is already open, ie, if a document is open and you
try to open another file from the menu, a new empty document window pops
up, then closes, with no dialog to open a file. Can someone check if this
is so?

Regards,

Betreff: Beginner's Problem

Hi,

I just heard about LyX and, with great enthusiasm, set out to use it. I
download the bundle 2.1.2 for Windows and installed it. MiKTeX also got
installed. It looked like everything went well, but ..

Each and every Document Class is Unavailable. There're hundreds listed, but
none that can be used.

I open any of the included manuals and a window pops up saying Document
Class is missing and that I should look at section 3.1.2 of User's Guide. I
looked at it and it asks me to look at Customization manual! I looked at it,
but it is well beyond a beginner. (An early step says Find it at CTAN or
whatever.)

Also, instructions don't cover Windows 8.1, which I use (that may or may not
matter, if they're the same as for Vista. It does matter that instructions
are inherently difficult and not explained with sympathy for newcomers.)

The manuals say that there are innumerable Latex additions, they can't all
be included/supported. Granted that, I was hoping that just a few
widely-used Document Classes (e.g., article, book) would come standard.

Document Class may not be the end of the problem for a beginner. In
addition, for some manuals, there's a second pop-up window that says that I
should install some module.

Should someone like me just give up and go back to Scientific Word?

TIA.

Hi,
you may try following: 
open Miktex - maintenance - package manager: 
probably you´ve to select the repository (i.e. CTAN) 
then: edit/select installable or all packages  (choose document classes you
need),
task/ install 
Afterwards you´ve to reconfigure lyx (tools) , then close lyx and start
again. 
Hope it works
