CLS file not found anymore after updating LyX and MacTeX

2009-11-16 Thread Dan Stark
Dear All,

I updated to MacTeX 2009 and LyX 1.6.4.2 and now LyX cannot locate a CLS file 
that I was using.  

I have it located in /usr/share/texmf/tex/latex currently.  

Is there any way to get LyX to see the CLS file again?

Thanks!

Index not being printed

I've made 4 books previously and the index has always appeared
correctly. I did the same with an earlier version of the present book
and again the index appeared. But now although I have numerous words
marked for indexing, when I insert Index via the menu at the end of
the book nothing is printed.

I think I must have missed out something obvious but what? I'm using the
same preamble as usual; nothing has changed. It is Book class. Any
suggestions please?

Whatever you decide on, please let me know. I have a math book on the back 
burner, and might bring it to the front if I can get good and easy ways to do 
quizzes. I'd especially like something with environments answer and 
answer_correct, which look the same unless a certain variable is set, in 
which case the correct answer stands out.

You might want to take a look at my making your own lists page at:

There could be a hundred explanations. To narrow it down I'd compile at the 
command line instead of in the LyX environment. Something like this 
shellscript, where $1 is the name of the LyX file, but without the .lyx 
extension:

#
#!/bin/bash
StyleFile=mydoc.ist
LyxCmd=lyx

### REMOVE ALL INTERMEDIATE FILES
rm -f mydoc.aux
rm -f mydoc.dvi
rm -f mydoc.ps
rm -f mydoc.pdf
rm -f mydoc.idx
rm -f mydoc.ilg
rm -f mydoc.ind
rm -f mydoc.log
rm -f mydoc.tex
rm -f mydoc.toc

### EXPORT TO LATEX AND COMPILE
$LyxCmd --export latex mydoc.lyx
latex mydoc.tex

### RUN makeindex TO CONSTRUCT INDEX INTERMEDIATE FILES
if test -f $StyleFile; then
makeindex -s $StyleFile mydoc.idx
else
makeindex mydoc.idx
fi

### AT THIS POINT, MANUALLY INSPECT mydoc.ilg FOR ERRORS.
### IF THERE ARE ERRORS, USE mydoc.ilg AND mydoc.ind TO
### TROUBLESHOOT THOSE ERRORS. DO NOT GO FARTHER UNTIL
### makeindex RUNS CLEANLY WITHOUT ERRORS.

### ONCE AGAIN COMPILE WITH LATEX TO INCORPORATE INDEXING FILES 
latex mydoc.tex

### CHECK TO MAKE SURE THE PRECEDING COMPILE WORKED,
### IF NOT TROUBLESHOOT

### CONVERT TO PDF. CAREFUL, FOLLOWING LINE WRAPS IN EMAIL
dvips -o mydoc.tmp.ps mydoc.dvi
ps2pdf12   -dPDFSETTINGS=/prepress -dMaxSubsetPct=100 -dSubsetFonts=true -
dEmbedAllFonts=true mydoc.ps

### VIEW THE RESULTS
xpdf myfile.pdf


Do the preceding, and you'll be able to troubleshoot your problem, or at least 
narrow it to the point where you can get further help.

I second Matts' request.  Especially for heavy editing of a document,
it would be a nice feature to be able to edit away, with changes tracked
in the background.  All those blue texts can make a document unreadable.

Is there any way users can support efforts for such a project, e.g. by

integral operators

2009-11-16 Thread Rodrigo Velez
Hi,

I got a problem with integral operators. Looking at the Math help Chap 10, it 
says that in order to use integral operators one must have the option Use 
esint package automatically set in the documents settings. I have this option 
set, but for some reason when I am going to view my file in pdf, Lyx says the 
following:

$\intop
$
I wasn't able to read the size data for this font,
so I will ignore the font specification.
[Wizards can fix TFM files using TFtoPL/PLtoTF.]
You might try inserting a different font spec;
e.g., type `I\fontsame font id=substitute font name'.

I don't know what it means. How can I solve this problem?

thanks for your help.

extra BibTeX run needed.Till now I can tell LaTeX run 4 times (or even 5, but 
last time is too fast to tell, and I'm not good in reading logs!)so I guess 
everything should run once more.The log will show a number of warnings, 
expecially from BibLaTeX, I always ignored because everything worked well (till

Re: Layouts for education?

2009-11-16 Thread Jason Waskiewicz
Education layouts are one of the places where (so far) I find LaTeX superior to
LyX. You might consider an ordinary article class. Standard itemizing features
and branches will allow you to create a decent-looking quiz or test as well as
an answer key. That said, I have a LyX option and a LaTeX option for you:

On LyX, I use Phil Hirschhorn's Exam class:

http://www-math.mit.edu/~psh/#ExamCls

Somewhere I found a layout file, but it requires an enormous amount of ERT. I've
been trying to make a better layout file for the past few weeks, but I'm having
a lot of trouble with anything beyond the most basic features. The problems are
the nesting of lists, codes for point values, and now he has included a feature
for correct answers in multiple choice. (I had always used branches to
accomplish that. 

For most of my tests (except Calculus) I've turned to the Examdesign class which
I use only as pure LaTeX. It makes great answer keys, alternate test versions,
and it looks good. My ideal would be this one (combined with some nice features
from Hirschhorn's class).

http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/examdesign/

This one probably won't work with LyX, no matter what.

I could do it. Include the package 'color' in preamble, i.e. add

After that go to tex mode/ERT (ctrl-L on windows ) and write

 That's not going to work with BibLatex (since Lyx does not really support
 biblatex yet). As Piero said, the problem is probably with the path passed
 to biblatex with the \bibliography command. You would have to check the
 latex log to see whether biblatex can find the .bib file. If not, the
 problem is with the path (assuming the file really is present in the
 directory you indicated, of course). Someone using Windows (I am not)

 know how to take care of spaces and drive letters in latex commands.

Index not being printed

Whatever you decide on, please let me know. I have a math book on the back 
burner, and might bring it to the front if I can get good and easy ways to do 
quizzes. I'd especially like something with environments answer and 
answer_correct, which look the same unless a certain variable is set, in 
which case the correct answer stands out.

You might want to take a look at my making your own lists page at:

There could be a hundred explanations. To narrow it down I'd compile at the 
command line instead of in the LyX environment. Something like this 
shellscript, where $1 is the name of the LyX file, but without the .lyx 
extension:

#
#!/bin/bash
StyleFile=mydoc.ist
LyxCmd=lyx

### REMOVE ALL INTERMEDIATE FILES
rm -f mydoc.aux
rm -f mydoc.dvi
rm -f mydoc.ps
rm -f mydoc.pdf
rm -f mydoc.idx
rm -f mydoc.ilg
rm -f mydoc.ind
rm -f mydoc.log
rm -f mydoc.tex
rm -f mydoc.toc

### EXPORT TO LATEX AND COMPILE
$LyxCmd --export latex mydoc.lyx
latex mydoc.tex

### RUN makeindex TO CONSTRUCT INDEX INTERMEDIATE FILES
if test -f $StyleFile; then
makeindex -s $StyleFile mydoc.idx
else
makeindex mydoc.idx
fi

### AT THIS POINT, MANUALLY INSPECT mydoc.ilg FOR ERRORS.
### IF THERE ARE ERRORS, USE mydoc.ilg AND mydoc.ind TO
### TROUBLESHOOT THOSE ERRORS. DO NOT GO FARTHER UNTIL
### makeindex RUNS CLEANLY WITHOUT ERRORS.

### ONCE AGAIN COMPILE WITH LATEX TO INCORPORATE INDEXING FILES 
latex mydoc.tex

### CHECK TO MAKE SURE THE PRECEDING COMPILE WORKED,
### IF NOT TROUBLESHOOT

### CONVERT TO PDF. CAREFUL, FOLLOWING LINE WRAPS IN EMAIL
dvips -o mydoc.tmp.ps mydoc.dvi
ps2pdf12   -dPDFSETTINGS=/prepress -dMaxSubsetPct=100 -dSubsetFonts=true -
dEmbedAllFonts=true mydoc.ps

### VIEW THE RESULTS

integral operators

2009-11-16 Thread Rodrigo Velez
Hi,

I got a problem with integral operators. Looking at the Math help Chap 10, it 
says that in order to use integral operators one must have the option Use 
esint package automatically set in the documents settings. I have this option 
set, but for some reason when I am going to view my file in pdf, Lyx says the 
following:

$\intop
$
I wasn't able to read the size data for this font,
so I will ignore the font specification.
[Wizards can fix TFM files using TFtoPL/PLtoTF.]
You might try inserting a different font spec;
e.g., type `I\fontsame font id=substitute font name'.

I don't know what it means. How can I solve this problem?

thanks for your help.

Re: Layouts for education?

2009-11-16 Thread Jason Waskiewicz
Education layouts are one of the places where (so far) I find LaTeX superior to
LyX. You might consider an ordinary article class. Standard itemizing features
and branches will allow you to create a decent-looking quiz or test as well as
an answer key. That said, I have a LyX option and a LaTeX option for you:

On LyX, I use Phil Hirschhorn's Exam class:

http://www-math.mit.edu/~psh/#ExamCls

Somewhere I found a layout file, but it requires an enormous amount of ERT. I've
been trying to make a better layout file for the past few weeks, but I'm having
a lot of trouble with anything beyond the most basic features. The problems are
the nesting of lists, codes for point values, and now he has included a feature
for correct answers in multiple choice. (I had always used branches to
accomplish that. 

For most of my tests (except Calculus) I've turned to the Examdesign class which
I use only as pure LaTeX. It makes great answer keys, alternate test versions,
and it looks good. My ideal would be this one (combined with some nice features
from Hirschhorn's class).

http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/examdesign/

This one probably won't work with LyX, no matter what.

I could do it. Include the package 'color' in preamble, i.e. add
\usepackage{color}  in the preamble. (Document-settings-latex preamble)
After that go to tex mode/ERT (ctrl-L on windows ) and write 
\colorbox{green}{the text}  within the ERT. More info at

[ANNOUNCE] LyX 1.6.4.2 for Mac OS X 10.6 is released

2009-11-16 Thread Jürgen Spitzmüller
LyX 1.6.4.2, another minor service upgrade release, is available now. The 
upgrade fixes recurring pseudo-crashes when running LyX on Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow 
Leopard). Apart from that, the release is identical with LyX 1.6.4.1.

Note that the fix impacts the performance on the Mac while autosaving. Thus, 
the upgrade to this version is recommended to LyX users on Mac OS X 10.6 only.

Please find the Mac binary here:
ftp://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/bin/1.6.4/LyX-1.6.4.2-Mac-Universal.dmg

The sources of the release are available here:
ftp://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/stable/1.6.x/lyx-1.6.4.2.tar.gz
ftp://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/stable/1.6.x/lyx-1.6.4.2.tar.bz2

Hi,

Does this release also fix the crash when using spellcheck (which is

Otherwise, one should at least note that all users of this version

really loss of data.


However, thank you for supporting Mac-users!

same preamble as usual; nothing has changed. It is Book class. Any
suggestions please?

Re: Layouts for education?

2009-11-16 Thread Steve Litt
Myriam,

Whatever you decide on, please let me know. I have a math book on the back 
burner, and might bring it to the front if I can get good and easy ways to do 
quizzes. I'd especially like something with environments "answer" and 
"answer_correct", which look the same unless a certain variable is set, in 
which case the correct answer stands out.

You might want to take a look at my "making your own lists" page at:

http://www.troubleshooters.com/linux/lyx/ownlists.htm

Again, please keep me in the loop.

There could be a hundred explanations. To narrow it down I'd compile at the 
command line instead of in the LyX environment. Something like this 
shellscript, where $1 is the name of the LyX file, but without the .lyx 
extension:

#
#!/bin/bash
StyleFile=mydoc.ist
LyxCmd=lyx

### REMOVE ALL INTERMEDIATE FILES
rm -f mydoc.aux
rm -f mydoc.dvi
rm -f mydoc.ps
rm -f mydoc.pdf
rm -f mydoc.idx
rm -f mydoc.ilg
rm -f mydoc.ind
rm -f mydoc.log
rm -f mydoc.tex
rm -f mydoc.toc

### EXPORT TO LATEX AND COMPILE
$LyxCmd --export latex mydoc.lyx
latex mydoc.tex

### RUN makeindex TO CONSTRUCT INDEX INTERMEDIATE FILES
if test -f $StyleFile; then
makeindex -s $StyleFile mydoc.idx
else
makeindex mydoc.idx
fi

### AT THIS POINT, MANUALLY INSPECT mydoc.ilg FOR ERRORS.
### IF THERE ARE ERRORS, USE mydoc.ilg AND mydoc.ind TO
### TROUBLESHOOT THOSE ERRORS. DO NOT GO FARTHER UNTIL
### makeindex RUNS CLEANLY WITHOUT ERRORS.

### ONCE AGAIN COMPILE WITH LATEX TO INCORPORATE INDEXING FILES 
latex mydoc.tex

### CHECK TO MAKE SURE THE PRECEDING COMPILE WORKED,
### IF NOT TROUBLESHOOT

### CONVERT TO PDF. CAREFUL, FOLLOWING LINE WRAPS IN EMAIL
dvips -o mydoc.tmp.ps mydoc.dvi
ps2pdf12   -dPDFSETTINGS=/prepress -dMaxSubsetPct=100 -dSubsetFonts=true -
dEmbedAllFonts=true mydoc.ps

### VIEW THE RESULTS
xpdf myfile.pdf


Do the preceding, and you'll be able to troubleshoot your problem, or at least 
narrow it to the point where you can get further help.

Thanks for these suggestions. Meanwhile I imported the _same_ file into
a different computer running the same version of LyX and immediately the
index appeared correctly! So presumably there is something wrong with
LyX on the first machine - missing package?

I second Matts' request.  Especially for heavy editing of a document,
it would be a nice feature to be able to edit away, with changes tracked
in the background.  All those blue texts can make a document unreadable.

Is there any way users can support efforts for such a project, e.g. by
making it clear that there is demand for such a feature, or by 
project-specific contributions?

Anything's possible. I'd run the individual commands to find out what's missing 
or different. I'll bet you can find the root cause in 40 minutes.

integral operators

2009-11-16 Thread Rodrigo Velez
Hi,

I got a problem with integral operators. Looking at the Math help Chap 10, it 
says that in order to use integral operators one must have the option Use 
esint package automatically set in the documents settings. I have this option 
set, but for some reason when I am going to view my file in pdf, Lyx says the 
following:

$\intop
$
I wasn't able to read the size data for this font,
so I will ignore the font specification.
[Wizards can fix TFM files using TFtoPL/PLtoTF.]
You might try inserting a different font spec;
e.g., type `I\font='.

I don't know what it means. How can I solve this problem?

thanks for your help.



BibLaTeX requires additional BibTeX run?

2009-11-16 Thread Piero Faustini

Hello,I've been in trouble all the day and now I ask to the list...I use -WinXP 
sp3-LyX 1.6.4-last version of BibLaTeX (0.8i)-koma report classand I suddenly I 
can't have my citations and references in my final pdf (200+pages), where 
everything worked well till today.From the log, it seems is a problem of an 
extra BibTeX run needed.Till now I can tell LaTeX run 4 times (or even 5, but 
last time is too fast to tell, and I'm not good in reading logs!)so I guess 
everything should run once more.The log will show a number of warnings, 
expecially from BibLaTeX, I always ignored because everything worked well (till 
today!)Please help me, I'm about 10 day from the completion of my dissertation! 
Thanks!Piero

Re: Layouts for education?

2009-11-16 Thread Jason Waskiewicz
Education layouts are one of the places where (so far) I find LaTeX superior to
LyX. You might consider an ordinary article class. Standard itemizing features
and branches will allow you to create a decent-looking quiz or test as well as
an answer key. That said, I have a LyX option and a LaTeX option for you:

On LyX, I use Phil Hirschhorn's Exam class:

http://www-math.mit.edu/~psh/#ExamCls

Somewhere I found a layout file, but it requires an enormous amount of ERT. I've
been trying to make a better layout file for the past few weeks, but I'm having
a lot of trouble with anything beyond the most basic features. The problems are
the nesting of lists, codes for point values, and now he has included a feature
for correct answers in multiple choice. (I had always used branches to
accomplish that. 

For most of my tests (except Calculus) I've turned to the Examdesign class which
I use only as pure LaTeX. It makes great answer keys, alternate test versions,
and it looks good. My ideal would be this one (combined with some nice features
from Hirschhorn's class).

http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/examdesign/

This one probably won't work with LyX, no matter what.

I could do it. Include the package 'color' in preamble, i.e. add
\usepackage{color}  in the preamble. (Document->settings->latex preamble)
After that go to tex mode/ERT (ctrl-L on windows ) and write "
\colorbox{green}{the text} " within the ERT. More info at
http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Colors
