This sounds like the fifth bullet under installation notes at

happen with the complete installer.  (Well, it's not *supposed* to 
happen at all, but it's *particularly* not supposed to happen with Uwe's

If you have sh.exe installed in the LyX bin directory, then try opening 
a command prompt in the bin directory and running 'sh configure' there. 
If it works, you should be able to start LyX; if not, you should get 
some sort of error message.


If sh is not there, and if you have msys installed elsewhere, the wiki 
bullet applies, and you may need to add the msys bin directory to your 
command path.  (Easy test: open a command prompt anywhere and run 'sh 
--version'.  If you get an unrecognized command message, you need to 
update your command path.)


If you don't have sh.exe installed anywhere, then you need to download 
and install msys.

English Language Grammar Checker Solution?

2006-05-11 Thread Sadat Chowdhury
How do LYX users (and perhaps TeX/LaTeX users in general) deal with 
English language grammar checkers?


I am switching from MS Word and I am a bit used to the grammar checker 
provided by Word. I am aware that it misses a lot of mistakes and

The Msys directory is installed when you download and

Msys, it includes the needed files. So you don't have
an Msys directory. When I wrote about the Msys directory
I wasn't sure at that time you didn't have that directory.



I checked my system and I did not find another sh.exe or sed.exe.
But I have found a cygwin1.dll, which was installed with Acronis (a 
disk imaging software). Renaming this file does not change the 
situation,when I start sh.exe.
There is no CYGWIN EnvVar on my system, neither in my enviroment nor 
in the system environment.

The msys-dll installed with lyx has the following details
16.03.2004  13:32   789.320 msys-1.0.dll

I just installed msys and started sh.exe in the msys\1.0\bin

In the msys-installation ths msys-dll shows the same details as the 
on in the lyx installation (as mentioned above).


When I examine the dependencies of sh.exe only msys-1.0.dll, 
kernel32.dll and user32.dll are shown.





Hmmm. Perhaps Paul's idea has some merit.

Is LyX installed on C: or P:
Is your hard drive normally labelled P:

If not is there a P: drive on your network
assuming you are on a network.

If you do have a P: drive on a network and
that is not the name of your hard drive label,
try disconnecting from the P: drive and
installing LyX.

I am still looking for the cause of the conflict.
I've seen errors like this because the developer,
Angus, for the WinLyx version, built the release
on his J: drive. Then people for some reason had
trouble installing LyX if they were connected to
a J: drive on a network, or had a USB device
named J:  The fix was to disconnect that J: drive
unitl after the LyX installation.

I'm hoping that your P: drive falls under the
solution to the J: drive problem. Lastly and
minorly, are both your machines 32 bit not 64 bit?

Regards,
Stephen




Drive P is my local program partition, it is not a network device.
But I' ve tried to install lyx, ... on drive C too - with the same problems.

I found the tip to remove a J drive - and did it, as I had a network 
drive J connected (only at my user account - no admin rights) and not at 
the admin's account under which I install lyx.


The Win2k machine has an AMD 64 bit processor but a 32 bit OS version.
The WinXP machine is a laptop with Pentium M technology (thus full 32 bit)

Er, no.  The label command writes the volume label, a special 
filesystem entry that serves as a label for a disk.  It has nothing to 
do with path substitutions.


The converse of the subst command was the join command, in MS-DOS.  It's 
not present in the 9x or NT Windows families.



if not perhaps the subst command would suffice called from J:


Subst creates a virtual drive that's mapped to a path on an existing 
filesystem.  It won't help in this case, where we want a virtual path 
(c:\aspell) created that's mapped to an existing path.


join would, in theory, do the job, if it were still included with the 
OS, and if you had aspell installed in the root of the destination 
drive.  (It would have to be the root, because join did not let you map 
an arbitrary destination path, just a destination drive.)


What you need, in NT-family Windows, is a reparse point at c:\aspell 
which redirects to your aspell installation.  The base OS includes the 
mountvol command, which will create a reparse point, but like join (or 
classic Unix mount, ignoring goofy newcomers like the loopback 
filesystem) it only lets you associate an entire volume (and not some 
path on that volume) with the destination.


On the other hand, the Windows 2000 Resource Kit (which I think is a 
free download from Microsoft these days) includes the spiffy linkd 
command, which will create reparse-point mounts from any source path to 
any destination path.  With it you can do, for example:


linkd c:\aspell j:\aspell

Note, though, that this requires that c:\aspell not already exist, and 
that you have appropriate permissions for c:\.  It appears to require 
only the Create Folders authority, but if you're logged in as J Random 
User on a typical XP box, I suspect you won't have that authority for 
c:\.  And that, of course, is as it should be; ordinary users shouldn't 
be able to create directories, real or virtual, in the root of the boot 
drive (assuming c: is the boot drive).

   - amd64 sid packages for LyX 1.4.1 (qt frontend)

I didn't snip any of your post because I thought it was

Winzip the C:\Aspell directory. Put it on the J: device.
I am assuming that this is a USB drive that plugs into
the back of a non-admin computer at another location.

Copy the C:\Aspell zip file from the J: device over to
the C: drive, C:\ md Aspell ; and unzip the contents
into C:\Aspell. I don't think that takes admin rights.
I have a non-admin username to test such things and
makedir works for him.

http://www.petri.co.il/download_free_reskit_tools.htm
 LINKD: This command-line tool links an NTFS directory
to a target object.

So my nonadmin user was able to use linkd and it does
not appear that linkd requires admin rights like some
of the dos commands. This worked on XP pro, I am not
sure about XP home. Your idea appears cleaner/easier.

The Msys directory is installed when you download and
install Msys. The Winlyxinstaller doesn't download
Msys, it includes the needed files. So you don't have
an Msys directory. When I wrote about the Msys directory
I wasn't sure at that time you didn't have that directory.



I checked my system and I did not find another sh.exe or sed.exe.
But I have found a cygwin1.dll, which was installed with Acronis (a 
disk imaging software). Renaming this file does not change the 
situation,when I start sh.exe.
There is no CYGWIN EnvVar on my system, neither in my enviroment nor 
in the system environment.

The msys-dll installed with lyx has the following details
16.03.2004  13:32   789.320 msys-1.0.dll

I just installed msys and started sh.exe in the msys\1.0\bin 
directory and it shows exactly the same error message:

P:\Utility\Latex\msys\1.0\binsh
AllocationBase 0x0, BaseAddress 0x715B, RegionSize 0x4D, 
State 0x1
P:\Utility\Latex\msys\1.0\bin\sh.exe: *** Couldn't reserve space for 
cygwin's heap, Win32 error 6


In the msys-installation ths msys-dll shows the same details as the 
on in the lyx installation (as mentioned above).


When I examine the dependencies of sh.exe only msys-1.0.dll, 
kernel32.dll and user32.dll are shown.





Hmmm. Perhaps Paul's idea has some merit.

 P:\Utility\Latex\msys\1.0\bin\sh.exe:

I just installed msys and started sh.exe in the msys\1.0\bin

Is LyX installed on C: or P:
Is your hard drive normally labelled P:

If not is there a P: drive on your network
assuming you are on a network.

If you do have a P: drive on a network and
that is not the name of your hard drive label,
try disconnecting from the P: drive and
installing LyX.

I am still looking for the cause of the conflict.
I've seen errors like this because the developer,
Angus, for the WinLyx version, built the release
on his J: drive. Then people for some reason had
trouble installing LyX if they were connected to
a J: drive on a network, or had a USB device
named J:  The fix was to disconnect that J: drive
unitl after the LyX installation.

I'm hoping that your P: drive falls under the
solution to the J: drive problem. Lastly and
minorly, are both your machines 32 bit not 64 bit?

Regards,
Stephen




Drive P is my local program partition, it is not a network device.
But I' ve tried to install lyx, ... on drive C too - with the same problems.

I found the tip to remove a J drive - and did it, as I had a network 
drive J connected (only at my user account - no admin rights) and not at 
the admin's account under which I install lyx.


The Win2k machine has an AMD 64 bit processor but a 32 bit OS version.
The WinXP machine is a laptop with Pentium M technology (thus full 32 bit)

The problem is that you have the comment widget in a Quote environment.

Er, no.  The label command writes the volume label, a special 
filesystem entry that serves as a label for a disk.  It has nothing to 
do with path substitutions.


The converse of the subst command was the join command, in MS-DOS.  It's 
not present in the 9x or NT Windows families.



if not perhaps the subst command would suffice called from J:


Subst creates a virtual drive that's mapped to a path on an existing 
filesystem.  It won't help in this case, where we want a virtual path 
(c:\aspell) created that's mapped to an existing path.


join would, in theory, do the job, if it were still included with the 
OS, and if you had aspell installed in the root of the destination 
drive.  (It would have to be the root, because join did not let you map 
an arbitrary destination path, just a destination drive.)


What you need, in NT-family Windows, is a reparse point at c:\aspell 
which redirects to your aspell installation.  The base OS includes the 
mountvol command, which will create a reparse point, but like join (or 
classic Unix mount, ignoring goofy newcomers like the loopback 
filesystem) it only lets you associate an entire volume (and not some 
path on that volume) with the destination.


On the other hand, the Windows 2000 Resource Kit (which I think is a 
free download from Microsoft these days) includes the spiffy linkd 
command, which will create reparse-point mounts from any source path to 
any destination path.  With it you can do, for example:


linkd c:\aspell j:\aspell

Note, though, that this requires that c:\aspell not already exist, and 
that you have appropriate permissions for c:\.  It appears to require 
only the Create Folders authority, but if you're logged in as J Random 
User on a typical XP box, I suspect you won't have that authority for 
c:\.  And that, of course, is as it should be; ordinary users shouldn't 
be able to create directories, real or virtual, in the root of the boot 
drive (assuming c: is the boot drive).

If you have sh.exe installed in the LyX bin directory, then try opening 
a command prompt in the bin directory and running 'sh configure' there. 
If it works, you should be able to start LyX; if not, you should get 
some sort of error message.


If sh is not there, and if you have msys installed elsewhere, the wiki 
bullet applies, and you may need to add the msys bin directory to your 
command path.  (Easy test: open a command prompt anywhere and run 'sh

If you don't have sh.exe installed anywhere, then you need to download 
and install msys.

also work for other Debian derivatives like Xandros
   - amd64 sid packages for LyX 1.4.1 (qt frontend)
   - Matej Cepl Dvipost package for sid i386
   - updated i386 sid packages

I would apreciate, if somebody running Sarge could test the packages as my

I didn't snip any of your post because I thought it was

Winzip the C:\Aspell directory. Put it on the J: device.
I am assuming that this is a USB drive that plugs into
the back of a non-admin computer at another location.

Copy the C:\Aspell zip file from the J: device over to
the C: drive, C:\ md Aspell ; and unzip the contents
into C:\Aspell. I don't think that takes admin rights.
I have a non-admin username to test such things and
makedir works for him.

http://www.petri.co.il/download_free_reskit_tools.htm
 LINKD: This command-line tool links an NTFS directory
to a target object.

So my nonadmin user was able to use linkd and it does
not appear that linkd requires admin rights like some
of the dos commands. This worked on XP pro, I am not
sure about XP home. Your idea appears cleaner/easier.

Re: PortableLyX?

Er, no.  The label command writes the "volume label", a special 
filesystem entry that serves as a "label" for a disk.  It has nothing to 
do with path substitutions.


The converse of the subst command was the join command, in MS-DOS.  It's 
not present in the 9x or NT Windows families.



if not perhaps the subst command would suffice called from J:


Subst creates a virtual drive that's mapped to a path on an existing 
filesystem.  It won't help in this case, where we want a virtual path 
(c:\aspell) created that's mapped to an existing path.


join would, in theory, do the job, if it were still included with the 
OS, and if you had aspell installed in the root of the destination 
drive.  (It would have to be the root, because join did not let you map 
an arbitrary destination path, just a destination drive.)


What you need, in NT-family Windows, is a reparse point at c:\aspell 
which redirects to your aspell installation.  The base OS includes the 
mountvol command, which will create a reparse point, but like join (or 
classic Unix mount, ignoring goofy newcomers like the loopback 
filesystem) it only lets you associate an entire volume (and not some 
path on that volume) with the destination.


On the other hand, the Windows 2000 Resource Kit (which I think is a 
free download from Microsoft these days) includes the spiffy linkd 
command, which will create reparse-point mounts from any source path to 
any destination path.  With it you can do, for example:


linkd c:\aspell j:\aspell

Note, though, that this requires that c:\aspell not already exist, and 
that you have appropriate permissions for c:\.  It appears to require 
only the "Create Folders" authority, but if you're logged in as J Random 
User on a typical XP box, I suspect you won't have that authority for 
c:\.  And that, of course, is as it should be; ordinary users shouldn't 
be able to create directories, real or virtual, in the root of the boot 
drive (assuming c: is the boot drive).

Re: Error: Could not read configuration file

2006-05-11 Thread Sebastian Schetter

Hello Paul!
Great, it worked. Problem was in fact the not installed path variable. 
(C:\Programme\LyX141\bin on my system) Maybe it wasn't installed, 
because my Wind2k is configured in German?!

BTW: no problems with my other system on WinXP.

Thanks for the help & good night,
Sebastian

Greetings

Any hints or workarounds?


This sounds like the fifth bullet under installation notes at 
http://wiki.lyx.org/Windows/LyX14x, except that it's not supposed to 
happen with the complete installer.  (Well, it's not *supposed* to 
happen at all, but it's *particularly* not supposed to happen with Uwe's 
installer.)


If you have sh.exe installed in the LyX bin directory, then try opening 
a command prompt in the bin directory and running 'sh configure' there. 
If it works, you should be able to start LyX; if not, you should get 
some sort of error message.


If sh is not there, and if you have msys installed elsewhere, the wiki 
bullet applies, and you may need to add the msys bin directory to your 
command path.  (Easy test: open a command prompt anywhere and run 'sh 
--version'.  If you get an unrecognized command message, you need to 
update your command path.)


If you don't have sh.exe installed anywhere, then you need to download 
and install msys.

[Announce] Update of LyX 1.4.1 Debian packages

2006-05-11 Thread Charles de Miramon
Hello,

I've just uploaded on http://lyxondebian.free.fr

 : - Untested i386 sarge packages for LyX 1.4.1 (qt frontend) that should
also work for other Debian derivatives like Xandros
   - amd64 sid packages for LyX 1.4.1 (qt frontend)
   - Matej Cepl Dvipost package for sid i386
   - updated i386 sid packages

I would apreciate, if somebody running Sarge could test the packages as my
next step will be to try to create a klik package.

I will update the wiki page http://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/LyXOnDebian soon.

Cheers,
Charles

Not that I know. The Qtwin version that is built in the installer runs 
perfectly on various systems so there must be another program on your 
computer that causes this; perhaps a former only partly deinstalled Qt

Sorry that I couldn't help you.

I assume that you want to number the first 11 pages with roman numerals 
then have a look at the attached LyX-file "Roman.lyx".

Nothing.lyx shows another solution.

 Further, If I don't want to print the page

numbers, what I have to do?


Either you use the document setting "Pagestyle: Empty" which is valid 
for the whole document or you write "\thispagestyle{empty}" (only valid 
for one page) or "\pagestyle{empty}" (valid for all pages after this 
command) in ERT into your document; see the attached Nothing.lyx.

I didn't snip any of your post because I thought it was
interesting and well thought out. I had already reached
the same conclusion about subst that you did and recanted
the idea in another post. I had another idea.

Winzip the C:\Aspell directory. Put it on the J: device.
I am assuming that this is a USB drive that plugs into
the back of a non-admin computer at another location.

Copy the C:\Aspell zip file from the J: device over to
the C: drive, C:\> md Aspell ; and unzip the contents
into C:\Aspell. I don't think that takes admin rights.
I have a non-admin username to test such things and
makedir works for him.

http://www.petri.co.il/download_free_reskit_tools.htm
 LINKD: This command-line tool links an NTFS directory
to a target object.

So my nonadmin user was able to use linkd and it does
not appear that linkd requires admin rights like some
of the dos commands. This worked on XP pro, I am not
sure about XP home. Your idea appears cleaner/easier.

Stephen

cv - another try

2006-05-11 Thread mail.k

Friends,

Thanks for the helpful advice 
(http://www.mail-archive.com/lyx-users@lists.lyx.org/msg47716.html).


I'd like a custom layout for my cv, to suit a certain -- shall we say 
"corporate" -- convention.

I hope Lyx can deliver.
I need the contact details and other information to appear in the left 
margin (about 1.5-2") -- and I need it in a gray box or separated by a line 
going down the length of the paper.


Is it feasible?

Yours,
Eran
