Re: [announce] preview test release of LyX 1.6.0rc5 for Windows

2008-10-30 Thread Murat Yildizoglu
Thanks Uwe,

It works like a charm and I have installed the small version to be used with
TexLive2005.

I have a strange problem with RC5. I have a crash-test latex document of 150
pages with graphics and everything that I try to import in each new
candidate. RC3 is perfectly able to import it but RC5 is not. Just after the
beginning of the import process, it tells me that the lyx file is from an
older version and that relyx can notr convert it. The first time, I have
thought that this was due to the presence of an older import in the folder
but I get the message even if I erase the lyx file before beginning the
import. Very strange indeed... I hope that RC5 is not less stable than RC3
at the end ;-)

A question, I have installed RC5 along the RC3 installation, following Uwe's
suggestion. Can this be a source of problem?

Best regards,

Murat

Re: Lyx 1.5.3 not showing references from Jabref 2.3.1

2008-10-30 Thread MikeM

Hi,

I have a very similar problem to the original poster.  I am using Lyx 1.6 in
Windows XP and Jabref 2.4.1. I can insert citations into my lyx file as
normal and they seem fine.  I can also amend my .bib file in Jabref and the
new citations appear for insertion into lyx as normal. However, when trying
to view my document as a PDF or DVI or PS my citations appear as '?' in the
text and nothing appears below my References heading.

I have updated the MikTex install and searching for .bst files reveals a
folder c:\Program Files\Miktex2.7\bibtex\bst\ with a load of .bst files so I
don't think its down to missing class files.  I am using Natbib in Document
- Settings and unsrtnat.bst (which I set by clicking on the Bibliography
insert), however I have tried various combinations of alternative settings
without any luck.

I have also checked the Jabref file for any incomplete or flagged references
which may be causing issues with the first latex run however there is
nothing obviously wrong there.

I have attached the .log file from my attempted conversions.

Can you guys offer any help?  I'm pulling my hair out and have a deadline on
Monday.

Many thanks 
Mike

 I could post by complete .bib file if you wanna try it out.
 Can I file a bug report in this list as well?
 
 Post the .bib file first.  In particular, run iconv against it to make 
 sure you didn't accidentally get an unsupported character in the file. 
 Also, does the LaTeX log show any error messages relating to the missing 
 references?  If you export a .tex file and run latex-bibtex-latex-latex 
 against it, are the refs still missing?

- fix bug that the installer ignored for some cases when LyX should only

Hi Uwe,

The installer doesn't create the lyx16 application data folder for all 
users anymore (unless asked to of course).
However, it still creates and fills the Aspell app data folder for all 
users, even if I ask to install for a single user.


A few annoying things when upgrading to RC5:

1- My figures (pdf) do not display in LyX anymore... I get Error 
converting to loadable format everywhere. Looks like the same issue as 
another user on the mailing-list.


2- reconfigure does not work (which probably explains point 1 above):
an error window pops-up saying:
The system reconfiguration has failed.
Default Textclass is used but LyX may not be able to work properly.
Please reconfigure again if needed.
If launched in a console, I have this (between dashes):
--
D:\LyXSVN\lyx-devel\src\frontends\qt4\Menus.cpp(588): Menu warning: menu 
entries Specific Manuals|p and Personnalisation|P share the same 
shortcut.

'import site' failed; use -v for traceback

module

import genericpath
ImportError: No module named genericpath
--
There is indeed no genericpath.py nowhere, and that explains why the 
reconfigure after installing is s fast ;-)

I could not find that file in RC4 after reinstalling it. I made one
by copying that page:
http://www.koders.com/python/fidB1801D52A7E500D99DFF977091F108F5D906B7F6.aspx?s=md5
into a text file that I called genericpath.py, but then it complained 
not to find _abcoll module. I am stuck there... I could not find that 
file on the net.


3- layout format error when loading my documents: I had to increase the 
format number.

I changed the lines
Format 7
to
Format 11
and they are now fine with RC5.

Best regards,

Olivier

I don't see anything obvious. The way to proceed is to export to LaTeX

links to bibliography

Hi there,

I've splitted my document into seperate files. S.th. like

mergefile.lyx
cover.lyx
tableOfContents.lyx
chapter1.lyx
chapter2.lyx
bibliography.lyx

the mergefile itself only includes the four other files. So, if I create 
a PDF out of mergefile, everything looks finde, the numbering of the 
chapters is great.


BUT: Now I added a entry into the bibliography (-bibliography.lyx) and 
want to refer inside of chapter1 (-chapter1.lyx). But, of course, 
chapter1 isn't aware of the entries inside the bibliography.


How do I make chapter1 aware of those entries, without including the 
document (because then, I would have it twice)?


Regards
Matt

I could not find that file in RC4 after reinstalling it. I made one
by copying that page:
http://www.koders.com/python/fidB1801D52A7E500D99DFF977091F108F5D906B7F6.aspx?s=md5 

into a text file that I called genericpath.py, but then it complained 
not to find _abcoll module. I am stuck there... I could not find 
that file on the net.


Ok, I finally found this _abcoll.py file, and the also missing 
abc.py from:

http://www.sfr-fresh.com/unix/misc/Python-2.6.tgz/
download links are
http://www.sfr-fresh.com/unix/misc/Python-2.6.tgz:b/Python-2.6/Lib/abc.py
http://www.sfr-fresh.com/unix/misc/Python-2.6.tgz:b/Python-2.6/Lib/_abcoll.py 



After copying those files and the genericpath.py in the bin\Lib folder, 
I can get reconfigure to work. But there is still no pdf image display 
on screen. My ImageMagick is

ImageMagick-6.4.1-0-Q16-windows-dll.exe

I'll try and update and report if I can get this to work.


So, updating to the latest ImageMagick does not solve the problem... but 
here is how I finally managed to solve it, and get LyX to display my pdf 
graphics fines on screen:

I ran lyx in debug mode:
lyx -dbg lists all options, and one says:
2097152 graphics  Graphics conversion and loading
so I ran 
lyx -dbg 2097152
and found in the long list of messages written, that the module 
functools was missing. I found one at

http://codespeak.net/pypy/dist/pypy/lib/functools.py
and after putting it with the others, it finally works :-)

Best regards,

Olivier

After using this installer, LyX can't find imagemagick.


Hi,

I had the same problem, and found that several python modules were missing.
For Imagemagick, what you need is to add functools.py, which you may 
find for example at

http://codespeak.net/pypy/dist/pypy/lib/functools.py
to the bin\Lib folder in you lyx installation (usually somewhere in in 
C:\Program Files).
That's a quick and dirty fix. I think Uwe will provide soon a fixed 
installer because there are at least 3 other missing python files. 
Details are in my other messages to this thread (user mailing-list only, 
I am not a developer).

Re: pdftex export option

2008-10-30 Thread baseliner

 Of course. To view your PDF use the corrsponding toolbar button, to export it,
use the menu File- 
 Export-PDF(pdflatex).

Thanks.. so looks like pdftex and pdflatex are the same thing huh.. sorry for
the silly qn then.. reason I asked was that when I view DVI using TexShop it
shows Pdftex as the Typeset and it seems that the fonts are better (more solid
lines) in this view than in the PDF generated via any of the export options when
viewed using Acrobat. So I was trying to see if it was possible to obtain the
same quality in the PDF export from LyX..

Thanks Uwe,

It works like a charm and I have installed the small version to be used with
TexLive2005.

I have a strange problem with RC5. I have a crash-test latex document of 150
pages with graphics and everything that I try to import in each new
candidate. RC3 is perfectly able to import it but RC5 is not. Just after the
beginning of the import process, it tells me that the lyx file is from an
older version and that relyx can notr convert it. The first time, I have
thought that this was due to the presence of an older import in the folder
but I get the message even if I erase the lyx file before beginning the
import. Very strange indeed... I hope that RC5 is not less stable than RC3
at the end ;-)

A question, I have installed RC5 along the RC3 installation, following Uwe's
suggestion. Can this be a source of problem?

Best regards,

Murat

as there have been some other issues about that, and I don't believe 
there was any format change from rc4 to rc5. If you could run lyx2lyx

I posted a solution to this problem on the wiki. This will be easier in

The reason is the font that you are using. Times doesn't include the \var*** 
characters.

In your file you use the encoding UTF8 that is designed for Chinese, Korean, and Japanese. Either 
use the language default encoding or an encoding that fits to the language you are writing in.
I admit that the encoding names in LyX 1.5 are not self-explanatory. In the upcoming LyX 1.6.0 this 
is much better.

Nevertheless, Appendix A of the UserGuide of LyX 1.5.6 describes all encodings.

I'd suggest you upgrade to TexLive -- tetex is no longer maintained.  You may 
well find the packages you want are already included.  See:

However, the basic installation for most CTAN packages is pretty simple:

1. Download the package -- usually the You can get this entire directory 
bundled as .zip near the top of the page listing the contents.

2. Unzip the downloaded file.

3. Follow the installation instructions in the README file.

4. Run texhash

5. From within LyX, do: Tools-Reconfigure. Restart LyX.

See section 5.1 in the LyX Help file Customization.

The installation instructions typically are something like this (from the 
calendar package):

INSTALLATION

The simplest way to install the tools in the package is to make a
subdirectory in the search path of your TeX, FTP all of the source files to
that directory, and run latex allcal.ins.  You should then be able to run
the demonstration files.

compile it. I'm sure he will add ChkTeX then to MiKTeX.


Why not bundle it in the installer if MiKTeX doesn't distribute it? I 
just managed to get it to work on Windows with MSVC 2008. There is 
already MS-DOS code included which can easily be upgraded to Windows. 
Maybe we can put Windows support in the official source?

Because this is no real solution. Everybody should benefit and not everybody build its own solution. 
ChkTeX is on CTAN that everybody can access it, it is not in MiKTeX either due to compilation

 The reason is the font that you are using. Times doesn't include the
 \var*** characters.

 In your file you use the encoding UTF8 that is designed for Chinese,
 Korean, and Japanese. Either use the language default encoding or an
 encoding that fits to the language you are writing in.
 I admit that the encoding names in LyX 1.5 are not self-explanatory. In the
 upcoming LyX 1.6.0 this is much better.
 Nevertheless, Appendix A of the UserGuide of LyX 1.5.6 describes all
 encodings.

Re: [announce] preview test release of LyX 1.6.0rc5 for Windows

2008-10-30 Thread Murat Yildizoglu
Thanks Uwe,

It works like a charm and I have installed the small version to be used with
TexLive2005.

I have a strange problem with RC5. I have a crash-test latex document of 150
pages with graphics and everything that I try to import in each new
candidate. RC3 is perfectly able to import it but RC5 is not. Just after the
beginning of the import process, it tells me that the lyx file is from an
older version and that relyx can notr convert it. The first time, I have
thought that this was due to the presence of an older import in the folder
but I get the message even if I erase the lyx file before beginning the
import. Very strange indeed... I hope that RC5 is not less stable than RC3
at the end ;-)

A question, I have installed RC5 along the RC3 installation, following Uwe's
suggestion. Can this be a source of problem?

Best regards,

Murat

Re: Lyx 1.5.3 not showing references from Jabref 2.3.1

2008-10-30 Thread MikeM

Hi,

I have a very similar problem to the original poster.  I am using Lyx 1.6 in
Windows XP and Jabref 2.4.1. I can insert citations into my lyx file as
normal and they seem fine.  I can also amend my .bib file in Jabref and the
new citations appear for insertion into lyx as normal. However, when trying
to view my document as a PDF or DVI or PS my citations appear as '?' in the
text and nothing appears below my References heading.

I have updated the MikTex install and searching for .bst files reveals a
folder c:\Program Files\Miktex2.7\bibtex\bst\ with a load of .bst files so I
don't think its down to missing class files.  I am using Natbib in Document
- Settings and unsrtnat.bst (which I set by clicking on the Bibliography
insert), however I have tried various combinations of alternative settings
without any luck.

I have also checked the Jabref file for any incomplete or flagged references
which may be causing issues with the first latex run however there is
nothing obviously wrong there.

I have attached the .log file from my attempted conversions.

Can you guys offer any help?  I'm pulling my hair out and have a deadline on
Monday.

Many thanks 
Mike

 Post the .bib file first.  In particular, run iconv against it to make

 Also, does the LaTeX log show any error messages relating to the missing

- fix bug that the installer ignored for some cases when LyX should only

Hi Uwe,

The installer doesn't create the lyx16 application data folder for all 
users anymore (unless asked to of course).
However, it still creates and fills the Aspell app data folder for all 
users, even if I ask to install for a single user.


A few annoying things when upgrading to RC5:

1- My figures (pdf) do not display in LyX anymore... I get Error 
converting to loadable format everywhere. Looks like the same issue as 
another user on the mailing-list.


2- reconfigure does not work (which probably explains point 1 above):
an error window pops-up saying:
The system reconfiguration has failed.
Default Textclass is used but LyX may not be able to work properly.
Please reconfigure again if needed.
If launched in a console, I have this (between dashes):
--
D:\LyXSVN\lyx-devel\src\frontends\qt4\Menus.cpp(588): Menu warning: menu 
entries Specific Manuals|p and Personnalisation|P share the same 
shortcut.

'import site' failed; use -v for traceback

module

import genericpath
ImportError: No module named genericpath
--
There is indeed no genericpath.py nowhere, and that explains why the 
reconfigure after installing is s fast ;-)

I could not find that file in RC4 after reinstalling it. I made one
by copying that page:
http://www.koders.com/python/fidB1801D52A7E500D99DFF977091F108F5D906B7F6.aspx?s=md5
into a text file that I called genericpath.py, but then it complained 
not to find _abcoll module. I am stuck there... I could not find that 
file on the net.


3- layout format error when loading my documents: I had to increase the 
format number.

I changed the lines
Format 7
to
Format 11
and they are now fine with RC5.

Best regards,

Olivier

bib file, and I'll do it here. Certainly, from this log, it's clear that 
you have an empty bbl file, which means either bibtex didn't get run for 
some reason or else it aborted with an error.

However, when trying

I have updated the MikTex install and searching for .bst files

don't think its down to missing class files.  I am using
Natbib in Document

I have also checked the Jabref file for any incomplete or

which may be causing issues with the first latex run however
there is
nothing obviously wrong there.

I have attached the .log file from my attempted conversions.

 


It sounds very much as if there must be a problem in your .bib

Unfortunately, though, I can't get your logfile to load, so I
can't give you any more information. You might try just attaching it.

Hi Uwe,

The installer doesn't create the lyx16 application data folder for all

However, it still creates and fills the Aspell app data folder for all 
users, even if I ask to install for a single user.


A few annoying things when upgrading to RC5:

2- reconfigure does not work (which probably explains point 1 above):
an error window pops-up saying:
The system reconfiguration has failed.
Default Textclass is used but LyX may not be able to work properly.
Please reconfigure again if needed.
If launched in a console, I have this (between dashes):

[...]
There is indeed no genericpath.py nowhere, and that explains why the 
reconfigure after installing is s fast ;-)

I could not find that file in RC4 after reinstalling it. I made one
by copying that page:
http://www.koders.com/python/fidB1801D52A7E500D99DFF977091F108F5D906B7F6.aspx?s=md5 

into a text file that I called genericpath.py, but then it complained 
not to find _abcoll module. I am stuck there... I could not find that 
file on the net.


Ok, I finally found this _abcoll.py file, and the also missing 
abc.py from:

http://www.sfr-fresh.com/unix/misc/Python-2.6.tgz/

http://www.sfr-fresh.com/unix/misc/Python-2.6.tgz:b/Python-2.6/Lib/_abcoll.py

After copying those files and the genericpath.py in the bin\Lib folder, 
I can get reconfigure to work. But there is still no pdf image display 
on screen. My ImageMagick is

ImageMagick-6.4.1-0-Q16-windows-dll.exe

I'll try and update and report if I can get this to work.

links to bibliography

2008-10-30 Thread Matthias Coy

Hi there,

I've splitted my document into seperate files. S.th. like

mergefile.lyx
cover.lyx
tableOfContents.lyx
chapter1.lyx
chapter2.lyx
bibliography.lyx

the mergefile itself only includes the four other files. So, if I create 
a PDF out of mergefile, everything looks finde, the numbering of the 
chapters is great.


BUT: Now I added a entry into the bibliography (-bibliography.lyx) and 
want to refer inside of chapter1 (-chapter1.lyx). But, of course, 
chapter1 isn't aware of the entries inside the bibliography.


How do I make chapter1 aware of those entries, without including the 
document (because then, I would have it twice)?

Hi,

I had the same problem, and found that several python modules were missing.
For Imagemagick, what you need is to add functools.py, which you may 
find for example at

http://codespeak.net/pypy/dist/pypy/lib/functools.py
to the bin\Lib folder in you lyx installation (usually somewhere in in 
C:\Program Files).
That's a quick and dirty fix. I think Uwe will provide soon a fixed 
installer because there are at least 3 other missing python files. 
Details are in my other messages to this thread (user mailing-list only,

Re: pdftex export option

 Of course. To view your PDF use the corrsponding toolbar button, to export it,
use the menu File- 
 Export-PDF(pdflatex).

Thanks.. so looks like pdftex and pdflatex are the same thing huh.. sorry for
the silly qn then.. reason I asked was that when I view DVI using TexShop it
shows Pdftex as the Typeset and it seems that the fonts are better (more solid
lines) in this view than in the PDF generated via any of the export options when
viewed using Acrobat. So I was trying to see if it was possible to obtain the

Thanks Uwe,

It works like a charm and I have installed the small version to be used with
TexLive2005.

I have a strange problem with RC5. I have a crash-test latex document of 150
pages with graphics and everything that I try to import in each new
candidate. RC3 is perfectly able to import it but RC5 is not. Just after the
beginning of the import process, it tells me that the lyx file is from an
older version and that relyx can notr convert it. The first time, I have
thought that this was due to the presence of an older import in the folder
but I get the message even if I erase the lyx file before beginning the
import. Very strange indeed... I hope that RC5 is not less stable than RC3
at the end ;-)

A question, I have installed RC5 along the RC3 installation, following Uwe's
suggestion. Can this be a source of problem?

Best regards,

Murat

I posted a solution to this problem on the wiki. This will be easier in

It occurs to me that when I am entering display math at a point where the LyX

forward). This problem does not occur if you have written the text to follow. It
