LyX - LaTeX2e

1999-06-10 Thread Alessandro Magni

I got lyx ver 1.0.0, and installed the latest teTeX distribution, that
gives on the command
line latex:

This is TeX, Version 3.14159 (C version 6.1)
**

Starting LyX's configure, I obtain (snipped out the
"yes" answers):

checking for a LaTeX2e program...
+checking for "latex"... not useable
+checking for "latex2e"... not useable
...
checking for ChkTeX...
+checking for "chktex"... no
...

What? NOT USEABLE? My teTeX directory contains -
among the others - two dirs,
named "latex" and "latex209".
I suppose the first one is LaTeX2e (but I don't know
how to check).

What's wrong? If the latest teTeX distribution
doesn't give you LATEX2e, where to get it?
How to make LyX see that I really got latex??

Thanks for any help

P.S. Could you please reply to me even, to [EMAIL PROTECTED]  ???
Thanks!

 Before running this file through LaTeX2e you should have installed
 the Standard LaTeX files in their final `system' directories.
 This file should *not* be run in a directory that contains article.cls

Of course I don't know where all the files are so I take a look:

 [kevin@localhost kevin]$ locate ltxcheck

 [kevin@localhost kevin]$ locate article.cls

So, ltxcheck.tex IS in the same directory as article.cls.  Now what do
I do?  :)  (LyX works correctly (i.e. I can write documents, save,
preview and print them, etc.), and I don't think I've written a LaTeX

This is a Red Hat 5.1 system with upgraded bits and pieces.  All of
the LaTeX stuff would have been installed during installation of the

Latex-Lyx bug ?

1999-06-10 Thread Risto . Kuusisto



Hello!

I think there's a bug when you import the following type of
equation label to lyx:

(here's the original piece of latex code,
 1'st the label)

  \begin{equation} \label{eq:syst_1}
y(t)+A_1 y(t-1)=B_0 u(t-1)+
e(t)+C_1 e(t-1),
  \end{equation}

(and then the reference in text)


 A natural state space representation for (\ref{eq:syst_1}) can be
 achieved by substitution $y(t)= x(t)+ e(t)$, which leads to the
 state space model

Now when you import this to Lyx and then export it back to Latex, the same
piece of Latex has been changed to the following:

(1'st the label)

 \begin{equation}
 \label{eq:syst_{1}}
 y(t)+A_{1}y(t-1)=B_{0}u(t-1)+e(t)+C_{1}e(t-1),
 \end{equation}

(then the reference)

 A natural state space representation for (\ref{eq:syst_1}) can be achieved
 by substitution \( y(t)=x(t)+e(t) \), which leads to the state space model

As you can see, the label and the reference are not the same anymore, Latex-Lyx
 has
generated {}-characters around the number in the label definition, but not in
the reference
field. This also means that Lyx can't find anymore the corresponding label in
question.
If you now look at the final ps-output, the reference point shows only this:
(??).
The same change can be seen in the generated lyx-file also.


Any comments ?

 Before running this file through LaTeX2e you should have installed
 the Standard LaTeX files in their final `system' directories.
 This file should *not* be run in a directory that contains article.cls

Of course I don't know where all the files are so I take a look:

 [kevin@localhost kevin]$ locate ltxcheck
 /usr/lib/texmf/texmf/tex/latex/base/ltxcheck.tex
 [kevin@localhost kevin]$ locate article.cls
 /usr/lib/texmf/texmf/tex/latex/base/article.cls

So, ltxcheck.tex IS in the same directory as article.cls.  Now what do
I do?  :)  (LyX works correctly (i.e. I can write documents, save,
preview and print them, etc.), and I don't think I've written a LaTeX
file manually for some time (not since the Red Hat 4.x days).

This is a Red Hat 5.1 system with upgraded bits and pieces.  All of
the LaTeX stuff would have been installed during installation of the
Linux distribution.

Latex-Lyx bug ?

1999-06-10 Thread Risto . Kuusisto



Hello!

I think there's a bug when you import the following type of
equation label to lyx:

(here's the original piece of latex code,
 1'st the label)

  \begin{equation} \label{eq:syst_1}
y(t)+A_1 y(t-1)=B_0 u(t-1)+
e(t)+C_1 e(t-1),
  \end{equation}

(and then the reference in text)


 A natural state space representation for (\ref{eq:syst_1}) can be
 achieved by substitution $y(t)= x(t)+ e(t)$, which leads to the
 state space model

Now when you import this to Lyx and then export it back to Latex, the same
piece of Latex has been changed to the following:

(1'st the label)

 \begin{equation}
 \label{eq:syst_{1}}
 y(t)+A_{1}y(t-1)=B_{0}u(t-1)+e(t)+C_{1}e(t-1),
 \end{equation}

(then the reference)

 A natural state space representation for (\ref{eq:syst_1}) can be achieved
 by substitution \( y(t)=x(t)+e(t) \), which leads to the state space model

As you can see, the label and the reference are not the same anymore, Latex-Lyx
 has
generated {}-characters around the number in the label definition, but not in
the reference
field. This also means that Lyx can't find anymore the corresponding label in
question.
If you now look at the final ps-output, the reference point shows only this:
(??).
The same change can be seen in the generated lyx-file also.


Any comments ?

I know it's just a matter of personal taste, but I personally like the little
"xconsole" program...just have it there around in a corner of your screen...
Another trick can be to use a totally transparent ETerm that does a tail -f
/var/log/messages , so you'll have the messages appearing right in your root

Of course, that means you want to look at all the messages your system sends

LyX <-> LaTeX2e

1999-06-10 Thread Alessandro Magni

I got lyx ver 1.0.0, and installed the latest teTeX distribution, that
gives on the command
line latex:

This is TeX, Version 3.14159 (C version 6.1)
**

Starting LyX's configure, I obtain (snipped out the
"yes" answers):

checking for a LaTeX2e program...
+checking for "latex"... not useable
+checking for "latex2e"... not useable
<...>
checking for ChkTeX...
+checking for "chktex"... no
<...>

What? NOT USEABLE? My teTeX directory contains -
among the others - two dirs,
named "latex" and "latex209".
I suppose the first one is LaTeX2e (but I don't know
how to check).

What's wrong? If the latest teTeX distribution
doesn't give you LATEX2e, where to get it?
How to make LyX see that I really got latex??

Thanks for any help

P.S. Could you please reply to me even, to [EMAIL PROTECTED]  ???
Thanks!

Alessandro

You have a point here... I just wasn't aware that there was a way to make
the console message appear in XWindows and that you don't have to Alt-F1
everytime to read them. [I tried the xconsole program but no messages
appeared there while I did get messages on the Alt-F1 screen, am I doing
something wrong?]

But that doesn't take away the fact that writing away a 0 byte Lyx file
could be warned about in Lyx itself. I don't want to blow this whole thing
up but Lyx is so great because even a newbie can use it; newbies however,
mostly aren't aware of "tail -f /var/log/messages" commands... (as the
situation described by Ingo Kloecker illustrated)

Well, I really don't like to get on your nerves but I'm not so
familiar with programming (just a user :...)
Does the first solution mean I have to change the line

LString tmp = "makeindex -c -q "; ---> line 452, LaTeX.C

to

LString tmp = "makeindex -c -q -s [name of my style file in
/usr/share/texmf/makeindex/]";

and everythink works fine?

(I'm a little bit nervous when changing source codes :-)

Thank you very much,

I always used xconsole to watch what Lyx was up to (especially LaTeX
runs etc.) but when I upgraded to RedHat 5.2 I had no output in the
window unless I ran xconsole su'd to root, so I've got out of the
habit now.

If you want to know what `not usable' means, you should try to run
  latex ltxcheck
when checks whether yout LaTeX is correctly installed.

Are you using redhat linux 6.0, by chance? It has known problems at
intall time. Another think to try is the texconfig program, that you
will need to run in order to make sure teTeX is correctly configured.

If you have Redhat 6.0, you should just go and do the tetex upgrade
*again* by hand, using:

rpm --force -Uvh tetex-*

This will re-install the tetex package and it will actually work this
time.

Allright ! The dificult point to "understand" is that "choose
Layout-paragraph-more-foatflt AND the width" must be done IN the line of
the figure, not the caption, not the text bellow. It is not clearly
(INMHO) explained in the guide.

I'm not having any problems, but I decided to try this.  Part of the

Of course I don't know where all the files are so I take a look:

> /usr/lib/texmf/texmf/tex/latex/base/ltxcheck.tex
> [kevin@localhost kevin]$ locate article.cls

So, ltxcheck.tex IS in the same directory as article.cls.  Now what do
I do?  :)  (LyX works correctly (i.e. I can write documents, save,
preview and print them, etc.), and I don't think I've written a LaTeX
file manually for some time (not since the Red Hat 4.x days).

This is a Red Hat 5.1 system with upgraded bits and pieces.  All of

Latex->Lyx bug ?

1999-06-10 Thread Risto . Kuusisto



Hello!

I think there's a bug when you import the following type of
equation label to lyx:

(here's the original piece of latex code,
 1'st the label)

  \begin{equation} \label{eq:syst_1}
y(t)+A_1 y(t-1)=B_0 u(t-1)+
e(t)+C_1 e(t-1),
  \end{equation}

(and then the reference in text)


 A natural state space representation for (\ref{eq:syst_1}) can be
 achieved by substitution $y(t)= x(t)+ e(t)$, which leads to the
 state space model

Now when you import this to Lyx and then export it back to Latex, the same
piece of Latex has been changed to the following:

(1'st the label)

 \begin{equation}
 \label{eq:syst_{1}}
 y(t)+A_{1}y(t-1)=B_{0}u(t-1)+e(t)+C_{1}e(t-1),
 \end{equation}

(then the reference)

 A natural state space representation for (\ref{eq:syst_1}) can be achieved
 by substitution \( y(t)=x(t)+e(t) \), which leads to the state space model

As you can see, the label and the reference are not the same anymore, Latex->Lyx
 has
generated {}-characters around the number in the label definition, but not in
the reference
field. This also means that Lyx can't find anymore the corresponding label in
question.
If you now look at the final ps-output, the reference point shows only this:
(??).
The same change can be seen in the generated lyx-file also.


Any comments ?
