Re: Update LyX

 If you know how to install LyX from the source, then it is not
 difficult to create the rpm if you use checkinstall. In fact, it is
 trivial.

Ok Paul; is poosible I'll try it. If I get it I'll send it to LyX project.

Re: Changes to updated subfiles not being included in main dvi.

2006-03-14 Thread Stéphane Téletchéa
Selon John McCabe-Dansted [EMAIL PROTECTED]:

 Currently, when I update a inputted LyX subfile, and go to the main
 file and go View DVI (Or ps or pdf...), the changes in the subfile
 are not included in the main DVI.

 I think this problem only started recently, and it only occurs with
 the document I am working on (e.g. I does not occur with small test
 Documents which only input a single file)

 Any ideas as to what is causing this, or how to fix it?


As far as i know, this problem is here for many years now.

The only workaround i've found is to close lyx and reload it (to remove all
/tmp/lyx*** directories and temporary files) to take modifications into
account.

Except this way, i've noever figured out how to accomplish this correctly.

because in this case /etc/lyxprofile gets read and there DISPLAY is set.

insert those setting in your $HOME/.tcshrc and $HOME/.bashrc,

C:\Cygwin\usr\bin;C:\cygwin\usr\X11R6\bin in the Path Prefix.
Also the batfiles are copied under C:\lyxcyg\bin 


Under File formats I have listed absolute paths like C:\cygwin\bin\xpdf
I ran startx from the the bash shell. I used lyx.exe so I could see the
reports. It does seem like LyX is invoking all the Cygwin apps and
creating output files. But there is no display. And now Tex Information
fails to populate with lyx-1.3.7_win32_setup_v2.

I am making a mistake somewhere because the lyx-winbin works
and lyx-1.3.7_win32_setup_v2 works with Cygwin in two cases.

Problematic custom layout file

not solve the problem.

LyX 1.4 on a .lyx with custom layouts file from 1.3 is also causing

book class. Erasing the .lyx/layouts/ solbve the problem

Multi-part doc plus HTML export?

2006-03-14 Thread Robert van der Kamp
Hi list, long time ago for me. I see you guys have been 
busy. :)

I'm starting a BIG documentation project involving a huge 
C/C++ source tree of about 70 different systems 
(subfolders). Let me explain what I want to do, and 
hopefully you can tell me if this is possible in Lyx.

1. I want each of the systems have their own document, 
explaining the system's features, etc.

2. I want to be able to hyperlink from these documents to 
other Lyx documents (e.g. a section, a table, a figure), or 
to certain functions or other contructs in the C/C++ source 
code.

3. I want a number of Lyx documents at the top level, 
referring to the different system doc files, again using 
hyperlinks, thus creating a nice web of hyperlinked docs.

4. I want a single big PDF created from all of these 
documents (using a master document I guess), where each of 
the (about 80) documents 

5. And finally I need all the individual files converted to 
HTML, the HTML file stored next to the orginal Lyx file in 
the corresponding subfolders, and with the hyperlinks now 
pointing to the associated HTML file instead of the 
original Lyx file, thus creating a nice web of HTML 
documentation.


I'm currently trying to set this up in OpenOffice v2.x, but 
the app is very instable, imo. I'd like to know if this can 
better be done in Lyx, and how easy (natural) it is for Lyx 
to do this. 

I'm running Linux here, and don't mind building a couple of 
scripts to get the HTML conversion done. 

Thanks for any info!
Robert

Is there an other converter to import odt-documents to tex/lyx with

Re: Custom .layout files in LyX 1.4

This line tells LyX that the layout file is in the new format for 1.4, but 
this is not true, because it contains the old keyword MaxCounter. Read 
the section 'Upgrading old layout files' in Customization.lyx if you want 
to know more about this.

 Input stdclass.inc
 Input numarticle.inc
 Input linguistics.inc
 
 NoStyle Chapter
 NoStyle Chapter*
 
 MaxCounter  Counter_Section

 End

End is not valid at this place (neither in 1.3 nor in 1.4). Remove this 
line and the line with Format above and everything should work.
It seems that LyX 1.4 is more picky about unknown keywords in layout files 
than 1.3.

 i didn't change the contents of the linguistics.inc file, though. if
 that has to be modified as well, then this could be causing the
 problem.

No, that one works fine.

 LyX 1.4 on a .lyx with custom layouts file from 1.3 is also causing

Yes. You are right. I had in my .lyx/layouts an old stdclasse.inc from 1.3

TOC update

QT interface, long book Ms, single file, undergoing final editing for a

An open and expanded TOC (for easy navigation of large documents during
editing), closes up under many conditions. I have identified two, one of
which is just dumb and annoying.

Conditon 1: when editing a heading that is in the TOC. This ALMOST makes
sense, it is at least comprehensible.

Condition 2: when I move (cut and paste) material around within a
paragraph, an expanded TOC collapses upon paste. VERY ANNOYING and
not very comprehensible.

I have not searched for other conditions, but have found the TOC collapsed
when doing different types of editing.

Stephen,

I really appreciate the effort you put in stress-testing the software,
but my brain is really turning into guacamole trying to follow you ;-)

My idea about all these LyX versions was the following:

1) People not even knowing the existence of cygwin should be happy
   with the native LyX version (i.e., that not needing the cygwin dll)
   and all native Windows helper apps.

2) People having cygwin installed but using MikTeX instead of teTeX,
   should be happy with a cygwin version of LyX which uses the native
   Windows graphics (i.e., doesn't need an X-server).

3) People using all cygwin apps (tetex, xdvi, gv, ...) would gain nothing
   from having a cygwin version of LyX using native graphics, as they
   still need launching an X-server. For them, a cygwin LyX/X11 should be
   the right thing.

Given that, it is possible to use a native LyX with all cygwin apps but
you must know what you are doing and a casual user is perhaps overwhelmed
by the task of making it work.

Until now, only a native LyX version was available, so I think it was
worth providing a cleaner solution for people like in 2) or 3) above.

I would stick with the three cases above only, without taking into
consideration the possibility of using native LyX with all cygwin apps
or, conversely, using a cygwin LyX with all native apps. These cases
would be considered as perversions ;-)

IMHO, of course ;-)

I just started using 1.3.7 on windows, and so far am quite thrilled with it.
I do have an issue with references though. When I add a new reference at the

proper label when printing the PDF (i.e. blablabla (Authorname 1998).
blabla), however, I always get this before the cite: (Author?) without the
doublequotes of course. so the cite in the text looks like this: blablabla
(Author?)(Authorname 1998). blabla...
 
 
 
Anyone know how to get rid of that?

That is all well and good. I got confused about the purpose of the
batfiles. LyX137v2 works with all cygwin apps and x11 if LyX137
is started from startwinx.bat shell. The batfiles have no apparent
effect whether they are contained in ~/lyx/bin or they are not there.

I had a desktop shortcut linked to ~/lyx/bin/lyx.bat for LyX137.
Double-clicking on the shortcut did not open LyX137 so that
it could use the Cygwin apps. I thought the batfiles were intended
to make LyX137 started from the shortcut work so as to use the
Cygwin apps. But they didn't. So I made a bad assumption and
decided to try to make LyX137 function in the same manner as
lyx-winbin. That worked I assume because it started the Xserver.

So I don't know what the batfiles are for? They are a bit tricky.
I'm wondering why in the past eight months whenever there was
a request from a poster for a version of LyX which worked with
Cygwin, there was no positive response, maybe a suggestion to
try building LyX on Cygwin with complicated terse instructions.

Nobody said run the LyX136or137 binary and choose all Cygwin
apps; you will need these files... LyX will need to be started with an
Xserver, so use startxwin and navigate to your /Lyx/bin and type
lyx.bat. Put such and such in your Path prefix.

Not many instructions are needed and they are easy to follow. This
approach was available before you developed the simplified build
instructions for LyX140. But I didn't read about it in LyX or any of
the other relevant forums. Here is an example of the common perception
of LyX and Cygwin which I used to share and is far from reality.
-

Lyx 1.4 for Windows (comp.text.tex)

have not tried this, but about a year ago it was a real pain to get
lyx on cygwin working.  If this works at all, it is terrific.

Building yourself can be a pain. Even getting a prebuild running using
Cygwin can be terrible since lyx needs so many components, tex, dvips,
acroread, display, eps tools, etc.  If this installer works, I would
take whatever it gives me rather than configure lyx on cygwin myself.
--

But the installer does work with Cygwin, you don't need to build
anything. There are two time-consuming tasks. 1. Downloading and
installing Cygwin which is not that big if you already have a working
version of Cygwin. 2. Figuring out how to start LyX so that it could
make use of the Cygwin apps. Perhaps it should be obvious as it was
to you that lyx-x11 didn't need an Xserver started but that lyx-winbin
did, and so did LyX137v2. But I had forgotten it. Otherwise, using the
binary is easier than your easy Cygwin LyX140 build advice, especially
compared to CygLyx1.3.1 or even 1.3.5. With the help of a short Howto.

Anyway, I never saw using a binary with Cygwin mentioned as a possibility
on the User list or developer although I didn't read all the developer 
posts. So

that is why I am surprised that nobody mentioned a 10 times easier method.
I saw Chuck undertake this task with three days of experience and make
good progress, but he expressed doubts about undertaking the build.

EF: Given that, it is possible to use a native LyX with all cygwin apps
but you must know what you are doing and a casual user is perhaps
overwhelmed by the task of making it work.

SH: They may be a bit daunted but not nearly as aghast as when
they are considering building Cygwin, especially in the past. That
doesn't seem like a reason for nobody at all to mention it here on
the mailing list. The most likely cause for the conspiracy of silence is
that almost noone knew it. Have you ever seen it mentioned?

Well, there may be more to this. I thought the batfiles were meant to
contribute the function of communicating from the native WinLyx
binary and employing the Cygwin apps. Which led me away from
thinking all I needed to do was start LyX in an Xserver shell. I
wasn't trying to be perverse. I just should have asked what purpose
the batfiles were intended to accomplish. It appears to me that they
don't help access the Cygwin Viewers, so they must do something
else. I mistakenly thought they were to enable the Viewers. I was hazy
about how it was to be done, I suspected it was native windows, but
not out of a perverse desire to disenfranchise X11. I

 Documents which only input a single file)

 Any ideas as to what is causing this, or how to fix it?


As far as i know, this problem is here for many years now.

The only workaround i've found is to close lyx and reload it (to remove all
/tmp/lyx*** directories and temporary files) to take modifications into
account.

Except this way, i've noever figured out how to accomplish this correctly.

Using LyX 1.3.6 on Debian GNU/Linux



Export LyX file to LaTeX format (LyX 1.4) (again)

2006-03-14 Thread Radwan JALAM




Sorry, but this is the right image box what I have:



--radwan


Hello,

I have a lyx file which contains some pdf images, the folder containing
the lyx file also contains the same images in eps format. If I export
this lyx file in latex format, LyX posts a message which requires to
over-write the original eps files, if not I am obliged to cancel
export? 



If I accept this over-write of the eps files, the produced tex file
contains links towards the images but without pdf or eps extensions !! 

Same problem is encountered with LyX 1.4 in both fedora4 and cygwin
version ? Anyone can confirm this?

This is because you have not set the DISPLAY variable. If you launch

have Xwin running (lyx-win will not launch it, only lyx-x11 does)
because in this case /etc/lyxprofile gets read and there DISPLAY is set.
Try setenv DISPLAY :0 if you use tcsh, or export DISPLAY=':0' if you
use bash, before launching lyx-winbin from the command line. You can
insert those setting in your $HOME/.tcshrc and $HOME/.bashrc,
respectively, such that you don't have to type them all the time.

 Nor does lyx-1.3.7_win32_setup_v2 (which Chuck is using)
 work with any Cygwin apps, with or without batfiles, with or
 without startx for Cygwin. It works with Windows apps, as

 I have them installed in C:\lyxcyg\bin

C:\Cygwin\usr\bin;C:\cygwin\usr\X11R6\bin in the Path Prefix.
Also the batfiles are copied under C:\lyxcyg\bin 


Under File formats I have listed absolute paths like C:\cygwin\bin\xpdf
I ran startx from the the bash shell. I used lyx.exe so I could see the
reports. It does seem like LyX is invoking all the Cygwin apps and
creating output files. But there is no display. And now Tex Information
fails to populate with lyx-1.3.7_win32_setup_v2.

I am making a mistake somewhere because the lyx-winbin works
and lyx-1.3.7_win32_setup_v2 works with Cygwin in two cases.
Anyway, lyx-x11 is working well which is my main concern. I hope 
that Chuck is able to benefit from your batfiles.

Multi-part doc plus HTML export?

2006-03-14 Thread Robert van der Kamp
Hi list, long time ago for me. I see you guys have been 
busy. :)

I'm starting a BIG documentation project involving a huge 
C/C++ source tree of about 70 different systems 
(subfolders). Let me explain what I want to do, and 
hopefully you can tell me if this is possible in Lyx.

1. I want each of the systems have their own document, 
explaining the system's features, etc.

2. I want to be able to hyperlink from these documents to 
other Lyx documents (e.g. a section, a table, a figure), or 
to certain functions or other contructs in the C/C++ source 
code.

3. I want a number of Lyx documents at the top level, 
referring to the different system doc files, again using 
hyperlinks, thus creating a nice web of hyperlinked docs.

4. I want a single big PDF created from all of these 
documents (using a master document I guess), where each of 
the (about 80) documents 

5. And finally I need all the individual files converted to 
HTML, the HTML file stored next to the orginal Lyx file in 
the corresponding subfolders, and with the hyperlinks now 
pointing to the associated HTML file instead of the 
original Lyx file, thus creating a nice web of HTML 
documentation.


I'm currently trying to set this up in OpenOffice v2.x, but 
the app is very instable, imo. I'd like to know if this can 
better be done in Lyx, and how easy (natural) it is for Lyx 
to do this. 

I'm running Linux here, and don't mind building a couple of 
scripts to get the HTML conversion done. 

Thanks for any info!
Robert

This line tells LyX that the layout file is in the new format for 1.4, but 
this is not true, because it contains the old keyword MaxCounter. Read

End is not valid at this place (neither in 1.3 nor in 1.4). Remove this 
line and the line with Format above and everything should work.
It seems that LyX 1.4 is more picky about unknown keywords in layout files 
than 1.3.

 i didn't change the contents of the linguistics.inc file, though. if
 that has to be modified as well, then this could be causing the
 problem.

No, that one works fine.

Yes. You are right. I had in my .lyx/layouts an old stdclasse.inc from 1.3

created errors. Removing it solved the problem.

controlling index format in LyX 1.4

Is there a way to (easily) change the index font in LyX 1.4? From the release 
notes, it seems that there should be more control over how the index is 
generated in LyX 1.4, but I haven't found any documentation on how to do this 
(my apologies if I've overlooked it).

Meanwhile, as a workaround, you can put the following two lines in the

\newtheorem{exa}[theorem]{Beispiel}
\renewenvironment{example}{\begin{exa}}{\end{exa}}

(Credit where credit is due: I liberated this from the wiki at

TOC update

2006-03-14 Thread hansel
QT interface, long book Ms, single file, undergoing final editing for a
publisher. This file is also under RCS control with many saved versions.

An open and expanded TOC (for easy navigation of large documents during
editing), closes up under many conditions. I have identified two, one of
which is just dumb and annoying.

Conditon 1: when editing a heading that is in the TOC. This ALMOST makes
sense, it is at least comprehensible.

Condition 2: when I move (cut and paste) material around within a
paragraph, an expanded TOC collapses upon paste. VERY ANNOYING and
not very comprehensible.

I have not searched for other conditions, but have found the TOC collapsed
when doing different types of editing.

Stephen,

I really appreciate the effort you put in stress-testing the software,
but my brain is really turning into guacamole trying to follow you ;-)

My idea about all these LyX versions was the following:

1) People not even knowing the existence of cygwin should be happy
   with the native LyX version (i.e., that not needing the cygwin dll)
   and all native Windows helper apps.

2) People having cygwin installed but using MikTeX instead of teTeX,
   should be happy with a cygwin version of LyX which uses the native
   Windows graphics (i.e., doesn't need an X-server).

3) People using all cygwin apps (tetex, xdvi, gv, ...) would gain nothing
   from having a cygwin version of LyX using native graphics, as they
   still need launching an X-server. For them, a cygwin LyX/X11 should be
   the right thing.

Given that, it is possible to use a native LyX with all cygwin apps but
you must know what you are doing and a casual user is perhaps overwhelmed
by the task of making it work.

Until now, only a native LyX version was available, so I think it was
worth providing a cleaner solution for people like in 2) or 3) above.

I would stick with the three cases above only, without taking into
consideration the possibility of using native LyX with all cygwin apps
or, conversely, using a cygwin LyX with all native apps. These cases
would be considered as perversions ;-)

IMHO, of course ;-)

Reference question

2006-03-14 Thread Balthasar Indermuehle
Hi all,
 
I just started using 1.3.7 on windows, and so far am quite thrilled with it.
I do have an issue with references though. When I add a new reference at the
bottom in the references section, and then cite it in my text, I do get the
proper label when printing the PDF (i.e. blablabla (Authorname 1998).
blabla), however, I always get this before the cite: (Author?) without the
doublequotes of course. so the cite in the text looks like this: blablabla
(Author?)(Authorname 1998). blabla...
 
 
 
Anyone know how to get rid of that?
 
Thanks for any info on that.

That is all well and good. I got confused about the purpose of the
batfiles. LyX137v2 works with all cygwin apps and x11 if LyX137
is started from startwinx.bat shell. The batfiles have no apparent
effect whether they are contained in ~/lyx/bin or they are not there.

I had a desktop shortcut linked to ~/lyx/bin/lyx.bat for LyX137.
Double-clicking on the shortcut did not open LyX137 so that
it could use the Cygwin apps. I thought the batfiles were intended
to make LyX137 started from the shortcut work so as to use the
Cygwin apps. But they didn't. So I made a bad assumption and
decided to try to make LyX137 function in the same manner as
lyx-winbin. That worked I assume because it started the Xserver.

So I don't know what the batfiles are for? They are a bit tricky.
I'm wondering why in the past eight months whenever there was
a request from a poster for a version of LyX which worked with
Cygwin, there was no positive response, maybe a suggestion to
try building LyX on Cygwin with complicated terse instructions.

Nobody said run the LyX136or137 binary and choose all Cygwin
apps; you will need these files... LyX will need to be started with an
Xserver, so use startxwin and navigate to your /Lyx/bin and type
lyx.bat. Put such and such in your Path prefix.

Not many instructions are needed and they are easy to follow. This
approach was available before you developed the simplified build
instructions for LyX140. But I didn't read about it in LyX or any of
the other relevant forums. Here is an example of the common perception
of LyX and Cygwin which I used to share and is far from reality.
-

Lyx 1.4 for Windows (comp.text.tex)

have not tried this, but about a year ago it was a real pain to get
lyx on cygwin working.  If this works at all, it is terrific.

Building yourself can be a pain. Even getting a prebuild running using
Cygwin can be terrible since lyx needs so many components, tex, dvips,
acroread, display, eps tools, etc.  If this installer works, I would
take whatever it gives me rather than configure lyx on cygwin myself.
--

But the installer does work with Cygwin, you don't need to build
anything. There are two time-consuming tasks. 1. Downloading and
installing Cygwin which is not that big if you already have a working
version of Cygwin. 2. Figuring out how to start LyX so that it could
make use of the Cygwin apps. Perhaps it should be obvious as it was
to you that lyx-x11 didn't need an Xserver started but that lyx-winbin
did, and so did LyX137v2. But I had forgotten it. Otherwise, using the
binary is easier than your easy Cygwin LyX140 build advice, especially
compared to CygLyx1.3.1 or even 1.3.5. With the help of a short Howto.

Anyway, I never saw using a binary with Cygwin mentioned as a possibility
on the User list or developer although I didn't read all the developer 
posts. So

that is why I am surprised that nobody mentioned a 10 times easier method.
I saw Chuck undertake this task with three days of experience and make
good progress, but he expressed doubts about undertaking the build.

EF: Given that, it is possible to use a native LyX with all cygwin apps
but you must know what you are doing and a casual user is perhaps
overwhelmed by the task of making it work.

SH: They may be a bit daunted but not nearly as aghast as when
they are considering building Cygwin, especially in the past. That
doesn't seem like a reason for nobody at all to mention it here on
the mailing list. The most likely cause for the conspiracy of silence is
that almost noone knew it. Have you ever seen it mentioned?

Well, there may be more to this. I thought the batfiles were meant to
contribute the function of communicating from the native WinLyx
binary and employing the Cygwin apps. Which led me away from
thinking all I needed to do was start LyX in an Xserver shell. I
wasn't trying to be perverse. I just should have asked what purpose
the batfiles were intended to accomplish. It appears to me that they
don't help access the Cygwin Viewers, so they must do something
else. I mistakenly thought they were to enable the Viewers. I was hazy
about how it was to be done, I suspected it was native windows, but
not out of a perverse desire to disenfranchise X11. I

As far as i know, this problem is here for many years now.

The only workaround i've found is to close lyx and reload it (to remove all
/tmp/lyx*** directories and temporary files) to take modifications into
account.

Except this way, i've noever figured out how to accomplish this correctly.
