lyx-1.0.3-3.src.rpm [was: All is well]

1999-06-09 Thread Kayvan Aghaiepour Sylvan

Hi Ben,

I hope you don't mind my CC'ing this to the lyx-users list.

 Alternatively, you can just grab the lyx-1.0.3-3.src.rpm from my
 ftp server. This has been updated. If you do that, a simple
 
 rpm --rebuild lyx-1.0.3-3.src.rpm
 
 should do the trick.

Ben I took this option since I figured it would be a good idea to
Ben test the file that other would be using.

Ben Worked like a dream.  Well done and thanks for all your help.

Great!

What this means is that, a RedHat 5.2 and RPM 2.5 user can take the
lyx-1.0.3-3.src.rpm and do ``rpm --rebuild'' and generate his own RPM
(tailored to his machine) to install.

Even though the RPM on my site was generated using RedHat 6.0 and RPM
3.0.1, the src.rpm format (and the spec file) is compatible enough for
this to work.

Cool!

Hello Kevin.

First of all, you should follow the instructions in INSTALL rather
than those of INSTALL.autoconf, which contain generic installation
intructions for programs using GNU autoconf. In particular, the 'Known
Problems' section at the end of this file might be helpful.

Second, we will certainly not be able to help you if you do no give is
details on your system, and the exact error messages that you got from
./configure.

Third, the obvious question: did you install the xforms library on
your system? It is not installed by default on most systems.

Hope this helps.

No error message if disks are full?

1999-06-09 Thread Ingo Kloecker

Hi,

one of my friends encountered the following problem:
After working with LyX on some document he saved it and quit LyX. Then
he noticed that the filesize of the lyx-file was 0 Bytes (excellent
compression :-)). Unfortunately LyX didn't warn him, that his document
couldn't be saved because there was no space left on /home. So he lost
the work of a whole morning. I haven't checked if there really isn't a
warning (I guess the other users of /home would get a little upset if I
used all space which is left on /home only to confirm this behavior),
but I think the developers should know it.

Stephan What I already did was to export two environment variables
Stephan LYX_MAKEINDEX (option -s and the name of the style file) and

Stephan But the effect seems to be all the same: LyX seems to ignore
Stephan it.

Stephan Does anybody know a way to create such a customized index
Stephan only using LyX (besides using xindy)?

The source code which handles makeindex has the following comment:
// It should be possible to set the switches for makeindex
// sorting style and such. It would also be very convenient
// to be able to make style files from within LyX. This has
// to come for a later time. (0.13 perhaps?)

The only solution I see are:

- hardcode the style you want in LaTeX.C (around line 448)

- have a 'makeindex' script which calls the real makeindex with the
  parameters you want

- hope that some developper will add support for specifying makeindex
  arguments in lyxrc :)

Yes, this is the case. I have also encountered this 'problem' -- the file
written away is 0 bytes and an error message is only printed on the console
which is not good when running under XWindows since one doesn't bother
looking at the console output and thus has no way of knowing the file was
actually not saved.

Re: Question about rcs ans version

Stephane,

rcs-info.sty will allow you to include the revision number. This is
available from your nearest CTAN mirror. The closest CTAN catalogue mirror
to you appears to be

ftp://ftp.loria.fr/pub/unix/tex/ctan/help/Catalogue/catalogue.html

Basically, once this style is installed, you need to include one line of
raw TeX in your file. The line then makes the RCS info available, for use
in your document.

 Hello, are you sure that you actually installed the C++ backend for
 egcs? Under Redhat, it is usually separate from the C compiler
 (although the same command line invokes the two compilers).

Thomas, you may also have to install a bunch of libraries -- packages
that end in "-devel" -- in order to compile anything.  I found, for my Redhat
5.1 system, they included just enough of a compiler to build a new kernel, but
none of the stdio.h, iostream.h, or other stuff.  If you have RPMfind
installed, it can probably locate a C++ compiler; look for "egcs-c++".  (It
works great for compiling the programs in my "Intro to C++ Programming" class,
but your results may vary.  :)  Egcs will install an actual g++ program (I tried
the symbolic link trick too, and it didn't work) which should get you going.

Libraries you will probably need could include (notice I am being vague
here... that's intentional, as I am not at all certain) libstdc++-devel (this
one is almost certainly required!), libg++-devel (I think... maybe used only if
you want to compile g++ itself), glibc-devel (?).  It's still rather hard for
me to translate compiler errors into appropriate library packages.  :(

I have not looked at the source RPM (haven't upgraded from 1.0.1 yet :)
but it would be nice if the builders of that put in dependency checks for the
necessary libraries... do they?

I hope I've helped... if not, there is more wisdom to be found here!

LyX: Unknown textclass `article'

1999-06-09 Thread Kayvan Aghaiepour Sylvan

This is a known problem with RPM upgardes of tetex.

Just go back and do:

 rpm --force -Uvh tetex-*

Then do:

 rpm -V `rpm -qa | grep tetex`

This should not show any missing files, and only the TeX ls-R file
should be different.

Once you've done this, you should have a working TeX that sucks at
hyphenation.

If you want to get the tetex-1.0 release (which is the latest and
fixes this hyphenation bug, among others) then go to my ftp site:

  ftp://ftp.sylvan.com/pub/tetex

Hello Kevin.

First of all, you should follow the instructions in INSTALL rather
than those of INSTALL.autoconf, which contain generic installation
intructions for programs using GNU autoconf. In particular, the 'Known
Problems' section at the end of this file might be helpful.

Second, we will certainly not be able to help you if you do no give is
details on your system, and the exact error messages that you got from
./configure.

Third, the obvious question: did you install the xforms library on
your system? It is not installed by default on most systems.

Hope this helps.

No error message if disks are full?

1999-06-09 Thread Ingo Kloecker

Hi,

one of my friends encountered the following problem:
After working with LyX on some document he saved it and quit LyX. Then
he noticed that the filesize of the lyx-file was 0 Bytes (excellent
compression :-)). Unfortunately LyX didn't warn him, that his document
couldn't be saved because there was no space left on /home. So he lost
the work of a whole morning. I haven't checked if there really isn't a
warning (I guess the other users of /home would get a little upset if I
used all space which is left on /home only to confirm this behavior),
but I think the developers should know it.

Yes, this is the case. I have also encountered this 'problem' -- the file
written away is 0 bytes and an error message is only printed on the console
which is not good when running under XWindows since one doesn't bother
looking at the console output and thus has no way of knowing the file was
actually not saved.

Re: Question about rcs ans version

Stephane,

rcs-info.sty will allow you to include the revision number. This is
available from your nearest CTAN mirror. The closest CTAN catalogue mirror
to you appears to be

ftp://ftp.loria.fr/pub/unix/tex/ctan/help/Catalogue/catalogue.html

Basically, once this style is installed, you need to include one line of
raw TeX in your file. The line then makes the RCS info available, for use
in your document.

 Hello, are you sure that you actually installed the C++ backend for
 egcs? Under Redhat, it is usually separate from the C compiler
 (although the same command line invokes the two compilers).

Thomas, you may also have to install a bunch of libraries -- packages
that end in "-devel" -- in order to compile anything.  I found, for my Redhat
5.1 system, they included just enough of a compiler to build a new kernel, but
none of the stdio.h, iostream.h, or other stuff.  If you have RPMfind
installed, it can probably locate a C++ compiler; look for "egcs-c++".  (It
works great for compiling the programs in my "Intro to C++ Programming" class,
but your results may vary.  :)  Egcs will install an actual g++ program (I tried
the symbolic link trick too, and it didn't work) which should get you going.

Libraries you will probably need could include (notice I am being vague
here... that's intentional, as I am not at all certain) libstdc++-devel (this
one is almost certainly required!), libg++-devel (I think... maybe used only if
you want to compile g++ itself), glibc-devel (?).  It's still rather hard for
me to translate compiler errors into appropriate library packages.  :(

I have not looked at the source RPM (haven't upgraded from 1.0.1 yet :)
but it would be nice if the builders of that put in dependency checks for the
necessary libraries... do they?

I hope I've helped... if not, there is more wisdom to be found here!

LyX: Unknown textclass `article'

1999-06-09 Thread Kayvan Aghaiepour Sylvan

This is a known problem with RPM upgardes of tetex.

Just go back and do:

 rpm --force -Uvh tetex-*

Then do:

 rpm -V `rpm -qa | grep tetex`

This should not show any missing files, and only the TeX ls-R file
should be different.

Once you've done this, you should have a working TeX that sucks at
hyphenation.

If you want to get the tetex-1.0 release (which is the latest and
fixes this hyphenation bug, among others) then go to my ftp site:

  ftp://ftp.sylvan.com/pub/tetex

If you own a german keyboard just select as document language german

If you own a us keyboard then you could use the american-2.kmap where

Great!

What this means is that, a RedHat 5.2 and RPM 2.5 user can take the
lyx-1.0.3-3.src.rpm and do ``rpm --rebuild'' and generate his own RPM
(tailored to his machine) to install.

Even though the RPM on my site was generated using RedHat 6.0 and RPM
3.0.1, the src.rpm format (and the spec file) is compatible enough for
this to work.

First of all, you should follow the instructions in INSTALL rather

intructions for programs using GNU autoconf. In particular, the 'Known

Hmmm, this is strange, since LyX checks when closing the file whether
the write was successful (if I understand correctly). The relevant
code is

// Write marker that shows file is complete
fprintf(file, "\n\\the_end\n");
if (file.close()) {
if (flag)
lyxerr.print(_("Error! Could not close file properly: ")
 +  filename);
else
WriteFSAlert(_("Error! Could not close file properly: "),
 filename);
return false;
}

I would think that this returns false as long as a write failed at
some point. Am I wrong? Another possiblity uis that the warning showed
up on console and not as a popup.

It appears that BufferList::write() calls Buffer::writeFile with flag
set to false. Is there a reason for that? I'd think that one would
like to have a popup message in this case.

Re: TOF, Short Figure Captions?

1999-06-09 Thread Pedro Sanchez

It doesn't work. If I write "[My short figure description]" at the
begining of the caption and mark this as TeX code LyX produces

\caption{[My short figure description]This is a very long figure
description that I don't want to show up in the TOF}

So far it seems I have to export my file as LaTeX and do the editing
manually. Really annoying!

What I meant is: use a Standard paragraph and write 
\caption[My short figure description]{This is a very long figure
description that I don't want to show up in the TOF}

Now, mark "\caption[", "]{" and "}" as TeX. This is not very pretty,
but at least the caption texts can be edited in conveniently.

Question about rcs ans version

1999-06-09 Thread Anonymous


 Hello, 

 I'm using version control in Lyx and I find this functionnality very cool.
(thanks to Lars Gullik Bjonnes :-)

 I was wondering if it is possible to automatically insert in the text the
version number, for exemple on the first page or in the foot page, or the
comment associated with the version. Something like a special note or label in
the insert menu.

TIA.

Yes, this is the case. I have also encountered this 'problem' -- the file
written away is 0 bytes and an error message is only printed on the console
which is not good when running under XWindows since one doesn't bother
looking at the console output and thus has no way of knowing the file was
actually not saved.

Greetings,
Natal VC




Re: Question about rcs ans version

Stephane,

rcs-info.sty will allow you to include the revision number. This is
available from your nearest CTAN mirror. The closest CTAN catalogue mirror
to you appears to be

ftp://ftp.loria.fr/pub/unix/tex/ctan/help/Catalogue/catalogue.html

Basically, once this style is installed, you need to include one line of
raw TeX in your file. The line then makes the RCS info available, for use
in your document.

Rod Pinna

Question about FoilTeX

1999-06-09 Thread Koh, Youn-Suk

Hi, all.
I am making the material for a presentation using FoilTEX with Lyx.
At the bottom line of pages, "- Typeset by FoilTEX -" was printed.
I want to erase this message or replace  this with anoyher.
How should I do ?
Thanks.

Thomas, you may also have to install a bunch of libraries -- packages
that end in "-devel" -- in order to compile anything.  I found, for my Redhat
5.1 system, they included just enough of a compiler to build a new kernel, but
none of the stdio.h, iostream.h, or other stuff.  If you have RPMfind
installed, it can probably locate a C++ compiler; look for "egcs-c++".  (It
works great for compiling the programs in my "Intro to C++ Programming" class,
but your results may vary.  :)  Egcs will install an actual g++ program (I tried
the symbolic link trick too, and it didn't work) which should get you going.

Libraries you will probably need could include (notice I am being vague
here... that's intentional, as I am not at all certain) libstdc++-devel (this
one is almost certainly required!), libg++-devel (I think... maybe used only if
you want to compile g++ itself), glibc-devel (?).  It's still rather hard for
me to translate compiler errors into appropriate library packages.  :(

I have not looked at the source RPM (haven't upgraded from 1.0.1 yet :)
but it would be nice if the builders of that put in dependency checks for the
necessary libraries... do they?

I hope I've helped... if not, there is more wisdom to be found here!

Define something like

LyX: Unknown textclass `article'

1999-06-09 Thread g

Hi,

I have been having this problem ever since I upgraded to tetex-*-0.9-17
from redhat 6 CD. I recompiled lyx, but it didn't help. Every time I
open/create a lyx document I get an error saying 

"LyX: Unknown textclass `article' [around line 4 of file
~/mywork/bild10/review_midterm.lyx]"

and when I try to preview/print I get an error saying

has anyone have this problem before? maybe I forgot to upgrade some
package? The line 4 of the review_midterm.lyx says 

\textclass article

but somehow I am missing that article.cls file (I am guessing).
These are all the .cls files I have in my system.

/usr/local/share/lyx/tex/ejour2.cls
/usr/local/share/lyx/tex/hollywood.cls
/usr/local/share/lyx/tex/iletter.cls
/usr/local/share/lyx/tex/revtex.cls
/usr/local/share/lyx/tex/broadway.cls

and I don't see "article.cls" file... Maybe someone can tell me where I
can find that file? I doesn't come with the lyx source code either...

Any ideas? or if anyone have that article.cls file, could you send it to
[EMAIL PROTECTED] ? maybe that will fix the problem.


Thanks,

Ji





LyX: Unknown textclass `article'

1999-06-09 Thread Kayvan Aghaiepour Sylvan

This is a known problem with RPM upgardes of tetex.

Just go back and do:

 rpm --force -Uvh tetex-*

Then do:

 rpm -V `rpm -qa | grep tetex`

This should not show any missing files, and only the TeX ls-R file
should be different.

Once you've done this, you should have a working TeX that sucks at
hyphenation.

If you want to get the tetex-1.0 release (which is the latest and
fixes this hyphenation bug, among others) then go to my ftp site:

  ftp://ftp.sylvan.com/pub/tetex

Enjoy!
