OT: Pointers on how to create symbols

Dear Lyxers,

I realize this is way off-topic, but there is so much expertise on this list, I 
thought I could ask anyway.

I need to create a few idiosyncratic symbols (three, to be exact) and my 
efforts to produce them by superimposing existing glyphs with TeX low level 
commands  have produced horrible results. I think it would be easier to modify 
a font by adding somewhere the three symbols I need.

I say I think, but I really have no clue, as I never had to mess with fonts. 
Can anyone suggest a reasonable starting point to educate myself on the topic?
Links, publications, etcetera on how to create symbols in TeX/LaTeX?

This works a charm. The syntax highlighting is very good, and it

Check all the listings options:

There may be one for that, though maybe not. You can enter these

Try the koma-script classes, which make it very easy to configure the 
chapter headings and such the way you want. Or you can use the titlesec

It is possible to create your own glyphs using MetaFont. We had to do 
this for the /Grundgesetze/ translation project, because some of the 
symbols Frege uses there don't seem to exist in any of the fonts we 
could find. That said, my sense is that MetaFont is a bit of a black 
art. I could probably put you in touch with the guy who did the glyphs 
for us, and he might be able to give you some advice, but I myself know 
nothing about it.

You have to put in the LaTeX preamble \usepackage{color}

and then use the colorbox and textcolor macro like that in ERT :

\colorbox{black}{\textcolor{white}{\makebox[\textwidth][l]{White on Black}}}

The makebox macro creates a box the size of \textwidth and align the text on

Logo Not Displaying ... Still

2009-05-02 Thread Rich Shepard

  Last Wednesday I posted a message to the beamer-linux-users mail list on
sourceforge.net and have not seen a response to it, or any other post to
that mail list.

  I'm back in the grove using the beamer class but still cannot get the logo
to display on each slide. (It doesn't display on the title slide, but that
is normal as I recall.)

  I'd greatly appreciate some more thoughts on how to identify the problem.
The code I'm using matches what is required based on the user's guide, and
it does work for others here. Why it's not working here is what I need to
learn.

  The logo, like all the images in this presentation, are in .pdf format and
I use pdflatex to view and export the developing document. It's quite
frustrating as this is the last issue I need to resolve.

  There is a sample page attached that shows how the box and text are
displayed rather than the image itself.

LyX, biblatex and refsections; or latexmk

2009-05-02 Thread Jonas Zimmermann

Hi,

I'm relatively new to LyX, so please excuse me if this is trivial; I  
haven't found a solution to this:
I've used biblatex with LaTeX and used the possibility to create  
reference lists per section via the refsection environment. Doing this  
in LyX causes some trouble as biblatex creates mytexfileN-blx.aux  
files (where N is the number of the corresponding refsection) which  
have to be run through bibtex individually. LyX doesn't know about  
this and so doesn't compile the correct references. My temporary  
solution was to enter latexmk in the bibtex preference file (so LyX  
runs latexmk whenever it's supposed to run bibtex). However, this  
takes more time to compile than necessary and is not very clean. Is  
there a way to ONLY use latexmk to compile a document? Or else, is  
there a way to tell LyX about the additional .aux files that should be  
run through bibtex?


Thanks,
Jonas

OT: Pointers on how to create symbols

2009-05-02 Thread Stefano Franchi
Dear Lyxers,

I realize this is way off-topic, but there is so much expertise on this list, I 
thought I could ask anyway.

I need to create a few idiosyncratic symbols (three, to be exact) and my 
efforts to produce them by superimposing existing glyphs with TeX low level 
commands  have produced horrible results. I think it would be easier to modify 
a font by adding somewhere the three symbols I need.

I say I think, but I really have no clue, as I never had to mess with fonts. 
Can anyone suggest a reasonable starting point to educate myself on the topic?
Links, publications, etcetera on how to create symbols in TeX/LaTeX?


Thanks,

Stefano

Try the koma-script classes, which make it very easy to configure the

It is possible to create your own glyphs using MetaFont. We had to do 
this for the /Grundgesetze/ translation project, because some of the 
symbols Frege uses there don't seem to exist in any of the fonts we 
could find. That said, my sense is that MetaFont is a bit of a black

You have to put in the LaTeX preamble \usepackage{color}

LyX, biblatex and refsections; or latexmk

2009-05-02 Thread Jonas Zimmermann

Hi,

I'm relatively new to LyX, so please excuse me if this is trivial; I  
haven't found a solution to this:
I've used biblatex with LaTeX and used the possibility to create  
reference lists per section via the refsection environment. Doing this  
in LyX causes some trouble as biblatex creates mytexfileN-blx.aux  
files (where N is the number of the corresponding refsection) which  
have to be run through bibtex individually. LyX doesn't know about  
this and so doesn't compile the correct references. My temporary  
solution was to enter latexmk in the bibtex preference file (so LyX  
runs latexmk whenever it's supposed to run bibtex). However, this  
takes more time to compile than necessary and is not very clean. Is  
there a way to ONLY use latexmk to compile a document? Or else, is  
there a way to tell LyX about the additional .aux files that should be  
run through bibtex?


Thanks,
Jonas

Use a typewriter font that provides bold shape (the LaTeX default font,

Source code highlighting and indentation

Hey again,

Now that I've decided on using LyX for my manual, I've started
wondering how to go about getting the source code examples highlighted

Is there a way to "automate" this, or should I just do it manually?

inputenc is part of every LateX system. The problem is that BibTeX cannot handle UTF characters. The 
error you get often appears for example when a reference has a long "-" between page numbers.

When you haven't used BibTeX, I need a _small_ LyX example file to check.

  The logo, like all the images in this presentation, are in .pdf format and
I use pdflatex to view and export the developing document. It's quite
frustrating as this is the last issue I need to resolve.

  There is a sample page attached that shows how the box and text are
displayed rather than the image itself.

LyX, biblatex and refsections; or latexmk

2009-05-02 Thread Jonas Zimmermann

Hi,

I'm relatively new to LyX, so please excuse me if this is trivial; I  
haven't found a solution to this:
I've used biblatex with LaTeX and used the possibility to create  
reference lists per section via the refsection environment. Doing this  
in LyX causes some trouble as biblatex creates mytexfileN-blx.aux  
files (where N is the number of the corresponding refsection) which  
have to be run through bibtex individually. LyX doesn't know about  
this and so doesn't compile the correct references. My temporary  
solution was to enter latexmk in the bibtex preference file (so LyX  
runs latexmk whenever it's supposed to run bibtex). However, this  
takes more time to compile than necessary and is not very clean. Is  
there a way to ONLY use latexmk to compile a document? Or else, is  
there a way to tell LyX about the additional .aux files that should be  
run through bibtex?


Thanks,
Jonas


Problem Indonesian spell checker

2009-05-02 Thread Waluyo Adi Siswanto
I use 1.6.3svn (id UI menu) in Ubuntu 8.10
The preference settings and document setting have been set in Indonesian
language.

I was going to try using Indonesian Spell Checker
but it did not work and a message appeared 
"Error: The file "/usr/lib/aspell/bahasa" can not be opened for
reading."

I checked the file system directory does not have
folder /usr/lib/aspell/bahasa, but I can see some files related to
Indonesian dictionary ?, such as indonesian.alias and id.* are all
in  /usr/lib/aspell

(I am not familiar with aspell)

How can I make use of Indonesian spell checker works?

Regards

Re: export to pdflatex

2009-05-02 Thread kgilbert

JanR,

A friend of mine who is a computer whiz wrote a "script" for  
reformatting the Latex file.  I haven't tried it yet, but I expect it  
will work fine.  I use a Mac, and I think the script works using the  
underlying Unix.  I am pretty sure the same can be done on a pc since  
the Latex file is just ascii on any computer.

I will let you know how things turn out.  If you hear of any other  
fixes that work, I would appreciate your letting me know.

Thanks,
Ken Gilbert
