LyX cannot find MiKTeX, maybe?

2008-09-07 Thread Adam Hoffman
I appear to have the same problem as Luis described in this thread:
http://www.mail-archive.com/lyx-users@lists.lyx.org/msg60058.html
However, I am having problems implementing the resolution detailed by Paul
Rubin.  I would have replied within that thread, but for some reason the
'Reply via email' button at the bottom of the thread is not working in any
of my browsers (FF, Opera, and IE)

To clarify, I am running Windows XP and Lyx 1.5.6 (1.5.6-1 installer), and I
have experienced the same errors Luis described:
LyX: Document class not available when I open templates, etc., and
No information for exporting the format DVI
No information for exporting the format PDF
No information for exporting the format Postscript
when I try to perform those actions.

I originally tried to direct LyX to use TeX from an existing install of
LiveTeX, and had these errors.  I then reinstalled LyX and directed the
installation to install MiKTeX
(2.7).  The first time it installed MiKTeX after the install
completed, I received a message that said that MiKTeX had NOT been
installed.  Confused, I answered the prompt by telling it to install
MiKTeK.  The install began again, but it would not install to the
default folder (MiKTeK 2.7 in Program Files) because it was not empty,
so I directed it to install to 'MikTek 2.7_'.  I received the same
message at the end of this install, but opted to continue anyway.  My
problem may be related to this.
 MiKTeK appears to be working, or at least all of the programs in the
program menu are working, and they point to the install in 'MikTeX 2.7_'

I followed the guidance provided by Paul, in spite of my limited DOS
abilities.
I ran 'kpsewhich article.cls' and the command prompt responded with the
location of article.cls:
C:/Program Files/MiKTeX 2.7_/tex/latex/base/article.cls

I interpreted that as MiKTeX being on the system path, so I relocated the
dos prompt as directed by Paul to:
C:\Documents and Settings\Adam\Application Data

At this point I tried to
run python configure.py, but I got an error.  I entered the following
text into the command prompt at \Application Data:
C:\program files\lyx15\python\python.exe C:\program
files\lyx15\resources\configure.py
and I received this output:
'C:\program' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable
program, or batch file.

I assume I need to provide some sort of command to tell it to run python,
but I don't know enough DOS to do so.  I tried to use the 'help' command to
find the command to use here, but nothing looked appropriate.

Of course, this also may not address the problem.

Thanks, and I look forward to using LyX.

Good.  That means MiKTeX is properly installed.

Correct.


so I relocated the
dos prompt as directed by Paul to:
C:\Documents and Settings\Adam\Application Data

At this point I tried to
run python configure.py, but I got an error.  I entered the following

and I received this output:
'C:\program' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable
program, or batch file.


Two things here.  First, use Windows Explorer to poke around C:\Program 
Files\lyx15 (assuming that's where you installed LyX) and locate 
python.exe.  Prior to LyX 1.5.6, it had its own little subdirectory, but 
at least on my machine it's sitting in the LyX 1.5.6 bin directory. 
Change the first part of that DOS command to reflect the correct 
location.  The configure.py script appears not to have moved.


Second, for an operating system that actively promotes spaces in the 
paths, Windoze isn't real bright about spaces in the paths.  You need to 
enclose the paths in quotes:


 C:\Program Files\lyx15\bin\python.exe C:\Program 
Files\lyx15\Resources\configure.py


On the bright side, XP emulates Linux's tab-completion for commands at 
the DOS prompt.  Start the command, type enough to make it unambiguous 
where you're going (say, c:\prog), and hit the tab key.  DOS will 
complete the command to the correct path and supply the quote 
automatically.  You can then type some more (say \lyx) outside the 
quotes, hit tab again, and DOS will extend the path and adjust the 
quotes.  Here's the progression when I do it (^T indicates me whacking 
the tab key, and  brackets stuff I type, the rest being supplied by DOS):


c:\pr^T
c:\Program Files\ly^T
c:\Program Files\LyX 1.5.6\b^T
c:\Program Files\LyX 1.5.6\bin\py^T
c:\Program Files\LyX 1.5.6\bin\python.exe c:\pr^T
c:\Program Files\LyX 1.5.6\bin\python.exe c:\Program Files\ly^T
c:\Program Files\LyX 1.5.6\bin\python.exe c:\Program Files\LyX 
1.5.6\r^T
c:\Program Files\LyX 1.5.6\bin\python.exe c:\Program Files\LyX 
1.5.6\Resources\co^T
c:\Program Files\LyX 1.5.6\bin\python.exe c:\Program Files\LyX 
1.5.6\Resources\configure.log^T
c:\Program Files\LyX 1.5.6\bin\python.exe c:\Program Files\LyX 
1.5.6\Resources\configure.py


and away we go.  I don't hit the Enter key until the last line.  Note 
that in the next to last line the tab key gave me a valid path to the 
wrong file.  Like Linux, if you keep hitting the tab key, DOS will cycle 
through the valid completions of the previous line.  Unlike Linux, DOS 
paths are not case-sensitive, so you don't have capitalize anything. 
Besides being less typing (once you get used to it, it takes care of the 
quotes for you.


I assume I need to provide some sort of command to tell it to run python,
but I don't know enough DOS to do so.  I tried to use the 'help' command to
find the command to use here, but nothing looked appropriate.


The path\python.exe entry will run Python.  The two problems above 
(stale advice, Python having moved, and the lack of quotes) just need to 
be fixed.


Good luck,
Paul

Re: Change the Floatname only for some Floats

2008-09-07 Thread knauslists
Thanks to Paul and J?n for their quick replies.

The solution I was looking for was exactly what J?n suggested.
I have created the .inc-file and it works fine, thank you.

I have only some additional questions:
1.) In the Lyx view of the document the numbering for the newly aux?

2.) The document I'm writing on uses KOMA-Script Book. I have changed the 
position of the table captions with the option tablecaptionabove in Document 
SettingsDocument ClassOptions. How can I get this positioning also for the 
newly created float-type?

Best wishes,
Johannes

P.S. I think adding this to the linguistics module in 1.6 would be great.

  If you want Tables and Tableaus (Tableaux? my spellchecker seems to

  to share a common number sequence (e.g., Table 1 followed by Tableau 2

 In the other case, create a file myfloats.inc that is included in your

   Type  tableau

   Placement tbp
   Extension loo
   NumberWithin  none
   Style plain

 Have a look at stdfloats.inc for a model.
 
 For 1.6, we could include this into the Linguistics module.

Hi All,
   I forgot to mention that I'm using Lyx 1.5.6.
   I'm new to Lyx. I'm using the elsevier document class - elsart.cls.
It comes with Lyx so I didn't have to download any files. I checked and
the elsart files all seem to be there, as is the natbib package and
plainnat.bst. For the last two days I have been trying to get Lyx to
produce author-year citations. I went to documentsettingsbibliography
and selected natbib and author-year. Here's an example.

Anderson, R. and D. Reeb. Board Composition: Balancing Family Influence
in SP 500 Firms, Working Paper, August, 2004

In the Bibliograhy Entry Settings dialog

board_comp - Key
Anderson et al. (2004) - Label

In the Citation dialog I ADD board_comp and choose Anderson et al.
(2004) as my Citation style. But when I run the .dvi file, the citation
is a number instead of author-year.I've even tried adding natbib
commands to the preamble, but no luck.  I'm at my wit's end. Any help
would be greatly appreciated.

automatically.  You can then type some more (say \lyx) outside the 
quotes, hit tab again, and DOS will extend the path and adjust the 
quotes.  Here's the progression when I do it (^T indicates me whacking 
the tab key, and <> brackets stuff I type, the rest being supplied by DOS):



"c:\Program Files"<\ly^T>
"c:\Program Files\LyX 1.5.6"<\b^T>
"c:\Program Files\LyX 1.5.6\bin"<\py^T>
"c:\Program Files\LyX 1.5.6\bin\python.exe"< c:\pr^T>
"c:\Program Files\LyX 1.5.6\bin\python.exe" "c:\Program Files"<\ly^T>
"c:\Program Files\LyX 1.5.6\bin\python.exe" "c:\Program Files\LyX 
1.5.6"<\r^T>
"c:\Program Files\LyX 1.5.6\bin\python.exe" "c:\Program Files\LyX 
1.5.6\Resources"<\co^T>
"c:\Program Files\LyX 1.5.6\bin\python.exe" "c:\Program Files\LyX 
1.5.6\Resources\configure.log"<^T>
"c:\Program Files\LyX 1.5.6\bin\python.exe" "c:\Program Files\LyX 
1.5.6\Resources\configure.py"


and away we go.  I don't hit the Enter key until the last line.  Note 
that in the next to last line the tab key gave me a valid path to the 
wrong file.  Like Linux, if you keep hitting the tab key, DOS will cycle 
through the valid completions of the previous line.  Unlike Linux, DOS 
paths are not case-sensitive, so you don't have capitalize anything. 
Besides being less typing (once you get used to it, it takes care of the 
quotes for you.


I assume I need to provide some sort of command to tell it to run python,
but I don't know enough DOS to do so.  I tried to use the 'help' command to
find the command to use here, but nothing looked appropriate.


The \python.exe entry will run Python.  The two problems above 
(stale advice, Python having moved, and the lack of quotes) just need to 
be fixed.


Good luck,
Paul

The same happens here when I try to open and close child documents from the view

Re: Change the Floatname only for some Floats

2008-09-07 Thread knauslists
Thanks to Paul and J?n for their quick replies.

The solution I was looking for was exactly what J?n suggested.
I have created the .inc-file and it works fine, thank you.

I have only some additional questions:
1.) In the Lyx view of the document the numbering for the newly aux?

2.) The document I'm writing on uses KOMA-Script Book. I have changed the 
position of the table captions with the option "tablecaptionabove" in Document 
Settings>Document Class>Options. How can I get this positioning also for the 
newly created float-type?

Best wishes,
Johannes

P.S. I think adding this to the linguistics module in 1.6 would be great.

Hi All,
   I forgot to mention that I'm using Lyx 1.5.6.
   I'm new to Lyx. I'm using the elsevier document class - elsart.cls.
It comes with Lyx so I didn't have to download any files. I checked and
the elsart files all seem to be there, as is the natbib package and
plainnat.bst. For the last two days I have been trying to get Lyx to
produce author-year citations. I went to document>settings>bibliography
and selected natbib and author-year. Here's an example.

Anderson, R. and D. Reeb. "Board Composition: Balancing Family Influence
in S 500 Firms", Working Paper, August, 2004

In the Bibliograhy Entry Settings dialog

board_comp -> Key
Anderson et al. (2004) -> Label

In the Citation dialog I ADD board_comp and choose Anderson et al.
(2004) as my Citation style. But when I run the .dvi file, the citation
is a number instead of author-year.I've even tried adding natbib
commands to the preamble, but no luck.  I'm at my wit's end. Any help
would be greatly appreciated.
