[ANNOUNCE] LyX 1.6.7 is released!

2010-07-15 Thread Jürgen Spitzmüller
Public release of LyX version 1.6.7
===

We are pleased to announce the release of LyX 1.6.7. This is the eighth
maintenance release in the 1.6.x series.

From the list of fixes and improvements, we'd like to highlight
particularly that this release irons out all known stability problems with
Qt 4.6. LyX 1.6.7 is our first release that is supposed to run smoothly
with Qt 4.6, so we urge all distributors who use that version to upgrade
LyX as well.

A detailed list of changes is appended below, remaining known problems
are listed in the file RELEASE-NOTES.

All users are encouraged to upgrade to this version.

In case you are wondering what LyX is, here is what
http://www.lyx.org/ has to say on the subject:

   LyX is a document processor that encourages an approach to writing
   based on the structure of your documents, not their appearance. It
   is released under a Free Software/Open Source license.

   LyX is for people that write and want their writing to look great,
   right out of the box. No more endless tinkering with formatting
   details, 'finger painting' font attributes or futzing around with
   page boundaries. You just write. In the background, Prof. Knuth's
   legendary TeX typesetting engine makes you look good.

   On screen, LyX looks like any word processor; its printed output --
   or richly cross-referenced PDF, just as readily produced -- looks
   like nothing else. Gone are the days of industrially bland .docs,
   all looking similarly not-quite-right, yet coming out unpredictably
   different on different printer drivers. Gone are the crashes
   'eating' your dissertation the evening before going to press.

   LyX is stable and fully featured. It is a multi-platform, fully
   internationalized application running natively on Unix/Linux, the
   Macintosh and modern Windows platforms.

You can download LyX 1.6.7 here (the .bz2 are compressed with bzip2,
which yields smaller files):

ftp://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/stable/1.6.x/lyx-1.6.7.tar.gz
ftp://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/stable/1.6.x/lyx-1.6.7.tar.bz2
ftp://ftp.devel.lyx.org/pub/lyx/stable/lyx-1.6.7.tar.gz
ftp://ftp.devel.lyx.org/pub/lyx/stable/lyx-1.6.7.tar.bz2

and it should propagate shortly to the following mirrors (which will
also host the .bz2 versions):

ftp://ftp.lip6.fr/pub/lyx/stable/1.6.x/lyx-1.6.7.tar.gz
http://lyx.cybermirror.org/stable/1.6.x/lyx-1.6.7.tar.gz

Prebuilt binaries (rpms for Linux distributions, Mac OS X and Windows
installers) should soon be available at:

ftp://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/bin/1.6.7/

If you already have the sources of the previous release (1.6.6.1), you may
want to apply one of the following patches instead:

ftp://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/stable/1.6.x/patch-1.6.7.gz
ftp://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/stable/1.6.x/patch-1.6.7.bz2

If you find what you think is a bug in LyX 1.6.7, you may either
e-mail the LyX developers' mailing list (lyx-devel at lists.lyx.org),
or open a bug report at http://www.lyx.org/trac/

If you're having trouble using the new version of LyX, or have a
question, first check out http://www.lyx.org/help/. If you can't find
the answer there, e-mail the LyX users' list (lyx-users at lists.lyx.org).

Enjoy!

The LyX team.

lyx/pdflatex pstrick

2010-07-15 Thread Artimess
Hi All,

I am having no success on including some pstrick code as I always get
errors.  If I just put the code in a normal documet and do:
latex -dvi2pdf then it works.
It seems to me that pdflatex has some issues with pstricks.  Is there any
work around for it?
Thanks
Artimess

ps:The sample code that I am using is.  yes, I have pstrick and pstree in my
preamble

\pstree[radius=3pt]{\Toval{root}}{\TC * \TC* \TC* \TC*}

One thing needs to be understand and remembered: pdflatex does not
understand POSTSCRIPT. So everything further is a little bit tricky.

Please read: http://www.coli.uni-saarland.de/~fouvry/how-do-I.html
It may help you understand what you need to have PSTricks working with
your LaTeX document. I've tried, but getting results is very heavy and
time consuming tasks.

And, what is worth mention here, LyX does not support such trickery
execution of different types of LaTeX compilers. Some --shell-escape
added to pdflatex invocation helps with pst-pdf, but I could cause
pdflatex to crash every time you do not use PSTrick in your document.

In general, worth to try, but everyday usefulness in minor in my opinion.

On the other hand I heard Tikz gives good results with pdflatex:
http://www.texample.net/tikz/ but I hadn't chance to try.

Vertical align text to top in a row with images

2010-07-15 Thread Falk Sticken

Hi,

I have a table with images in a row. First column has paragraph cells 
with row descriptions. Unfortunately I can not figure out how to align 
the text vertical such that it is at the top of the row. I tried 
diffrent settings and also used a parbox enclosing the images, but the 
text in the first column is always aligned to the bottom. When I try to 
use 'top' alignment for the column the outcome is even worse, as the 
text is beneath the baseline.


Sample code:

\begin{tabular}{|{\raggedright}p{1.5in}|c|c|c|}
\hline
Pictures  \includegraphics[width=1.5in]{...}  
\includegraphics[width=1.5in]{...}  
\includegraphics[width=1.5in]{...}\tabularnewline

\hline
\end{tabular}

bye,
Falk


Re: Fancy headers lost on Index pages

 Hi list,
 i don't remember whether this has already been discussed in this list...

 I have a document (based on koma article) in which i use fancy headers.
 That works very well in the main part of the document, but the the first
 page of the index (at the end of my document) doesn't show any header or
 footer information (not even a pager number).
 On the second page of the index the header and footer info appears
 correctly.

 What can I do to get the header and footer strings on the first page of
 the index?

 TIA and happy LyXing

 Hellmut

 
 I don't know if it would work, but you could try Insert  TeX Code just
 before the index, and fill this TeX Code box with
 \thispagestyle{plain} or \thispagestyle{fancy}
 
 If this doesn't work, you at least have some more keywords to try in
 google.
 
 Cheers,

Hi Julien,
thanks for your reply ;-)

You proposal helped me to pin down the effect somewhat more.
Since i'm using the koma scrlttr2 class i had to use the command
\thispagestyle{scrheadings} (which is used in my stye file for this
document too.

This doesn't solve my problem, though.
It seems that the LaTeX command \printindex{} which is generated by LyX
is the culprit.
I suppose it issues a command like \thispagestyle{empty} because it is
starting sort of a new chapter.

Following this route i found a workaround. Her it is (in the hope that
may be helpful for somebody else)

* export my lyx file to LaTeX (pdflatex)

* run pdflatex from the command line on this a first time
(which generates an *.idx file)

* run makeindex on this file (without extension)
(which generates an *.ind file which will be input during the next
pdflatex run)

In my reply to your personal account i forgot the most important point ,-(
*** Edit the *.ind file ***
After the first line
\begin{theindex}
add the line
\thispagestyle{scrheadings}

* final run of pfdlatex on the *.tex source file

And here we are, the first page of the index has the desired header and
footer lines.


Happy LyXing

LyX + Beamer + MikTex 2008 = fail

2010-07-15 Thread Corrado Mencar
Dear LyX users and developers,
   when I try to compile the beamer template provided with LyX, the
pdf is not generated but a number of errors occur. I have found that
the problem is due to the recent version of the package geometry.sty
provided with MikTeX 2008. The bug can be fixed with some line of TeX
code before the \documentclass command, but, while this is easy in
.tex documents, I found no way to fix the bug by using LyX. As a
consequence, beamer slides cannot be rendered in LyX. I hope
developers will soon fix the problem with a patch or a workaround.

Bye,

Corrado

Re: txfonts integral sign replaced with intersection operator

Hi,

I get this problem (still) from both pxfonts and txfonts.

The only workaround I have found is to use \varint rather than plain \int
for integrals.

Help: Newbie writing a report- Help in drawing diagrams particularly circuits

2010-07-15 Thread BOB Merhebi
Hello,

I am a newbie to LyX. I searched most manuals  wikis but could find nothing
about drawing diagrams (physics related). I am in urgent need of help as I
am writing a reports for my physics labs which are due in less than 24 hrs.
I particularly need to draw electrical ciruits.

You help is appreciated

Re: Help: Newbie writing a report- Help in drawing diagrams particularly circuits

2010-07-15 Thread Rob Oakes
Hi Bob,

The best way to create specific types of drawings for a LyX document is to use 
a program designed for that purpose (like a circuit diagram editor) and then 
exporting to an appropriate image format (PDF, PNG, JPEG, etc.).  There may be 
LaTeX packages that can draw circuit diagrams (I wouldn't know, not my cup of 
tea), but the learning curve associated with those packages is far too steep to 
mount by your deadline.

Better to use what you know (even if that's stencil sets and pen/paper + a 
scanner), then to try and reinvent the wheel on a deadline.  Once the image is 
created, you can then add it to a document and use a float to add a caption.

Cheers,

Rob

[announce] LyXWinInstaller for LyX 1.6.7

2010-07-15 Thread Uwe Stöhr

Hello LyXers,

the alternative Windows installer for LyX 1.6.7 is now available.

This installer comes again with an update installer to update existing 
LyX 1.6.6.1 installation to LyX
1.6.7. NOTE: To be able to use this update installer, LyX 1.6.6.1 must 
have been installed with the

alternative Windows installer.

If you are using LyX 1.6.6 and not 1.6.6.1, I recommend to uninstall 
1.6.6 _completely_ and reinstall 1.6.7. This way you have an up to date 
installation including important security fixes in third-party programs 
like ImageMagick. (ImageMagick is used by LyX to convert images.)


-

The installer for this version can be downloaded from:
http://developer.berlios.de/project/showfiles.php?group_id=5117release_id=17719
and
http://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/bin/1.6.7/

(General infos about the installer can be found here:
 http://wiki.lyx.org/Windows/LyXWinInstaller )

Installer Changelog:
-
Version 4.25
- LyX 1.6.7
- updated to eLyXer 0.99
- updated to ImageMagick 6.6.3-0
- updated Qt libraries to version 4.6.3

It appears that mouse scrolling is broken on the Mac for LyX 1.6.7.  This
same problem is present in the alpha versions of 2.0 on the Mac, and it
looks like it slipped through the cracks for this release.

Any chance of a patch being released in the very near future to fix this
serious regression?

tex2lyx error (libboost related)

Can anyone enlighten me on how to solve the situation? Is version 1.38

Key-Bindings for Zoom-In and Zoom-Out

2010-07-15 Thread Stephan Witt
Dear LyX users,

since some time it is more and more common to zoom-in or zoom-out the workspace 
of an application with Ctrl-plus or Ctrl-minus key-strokes. On a Apple Mac this 
would be Cmd-plus or Cmd-minus. Traditionally in LyX the Ctrl-minus keys 
produces an hyphenation hint. Therefore we have a conflict here.

On the one hand the new user would more likely expect Ctrl-plus/minus to act as 
zoom-in/out. On the other hand the experienced users may disagree with the 
change of behaviour if the standard key-binding of LyX for the hyphenation hint 
move to e. g. Ctrl-Shift-minus.

So I want to start a little poll here: 
please tell your pro or cons for binding the zoom-in/-out feature to 
Ctrl-plus/-minus and moving the current binding of Ctrl-minus.

Regards,

Stephan

Running tex2lyx from console produces the following error message:


tex2lyx: error while loading shared libraries: 
libboost_filesystem-mt.so.1.38.0


On my system, I have the following:

/usr/lib/libboost_filesystem-mt.so - libboost_filesystem.so.1.40.0

Was this self-compiled? If so, then compile --with-included-boost, and 
that should solve the problem. If it's the packaged version, then it 
looks like a packaging bug.

 please go to Help-About LyX and report version. this dialog really looks
 from 2.0. it would alos nicely resolve the first issue ;)

The screenshot is definitely LyX 2.x. The spellchecker of LyX 1.6.7 does not

I installed Lyx 1.6.7 on my mac running OSX 10.6.4 and encounter no problems
with mouse scrolling. I have not experimented with Lyx 2.0 as yet.

 Hi Bob,
 
 The best way to create specific types of drawings for a LyX document

 editor) and then exporting to an appropriate image format (PDF, PNG,

Bob, 

In line with Rob's suggestion, I just checked Xfig's capabilities, and
they appear to be quite substantial.  A document link to something
addressing both Xfig and its use in drawing circuits is the following:

http://users.skynet.be/hugocoolens/linux/xfig-howto.pdf

Xfig has the electrical libraries built into it.

Once done, you export the result to an eps figure and import it into
LyX.

The only question is whether you know Xfig or not.  It is fairly easy to
do basic stuff.

Good luck!

Sorry all - false alarm.  For whatever reason, when I installed 1.6.7, the
default LyX switched to 2.0alpha4 on my system, and I did not notice this.

So it turns out that scrolling and dialogue boxes work fine in 1.6.7.
Again, sorry for the false alarm.

As others have suggested...
for low learning curve: stencil sets and pen/paper + a scanner
for quick but limited computer aided drawing including circuits: dia [can 
export to TeX with
pstricks or one of the image formats]



for computer aided schematics (2D circuit diagrams): gschem from the gEDA set 
of tools [output to an

under RHEL/CentOS after you have enabled the EPEL repository it is only a `yum

away. I also suggest installing geda-docs.
AFAIK it is also in fedora in these packages.
It took a couple of hours to get fairly comfortable with it for me, but I had 
not used a circuit

lyx/pdflatex pstrick

2010-07-15 Thread Artimess
Hi All,

I am having no success on including some pstrick code as I always get
errors.  If I just put the code in a normal documet and do:
latex -dvi2pdf then it works.
It seems to me that pdflatex has some issues with pstricks.  Is there any
work around for it?
Thanks
Artimess

ps:The sample code that I am using is.  yes, I have pstrick and pstree in my
preamble

\pstree[radius=3pt]{\Toval{root}}{\TC * \TC* \TC* \TC*}

One thing needs to be understand and remembered: pdflatex does not
understand POSTSCRIPT. So everything further is a little bit tricky.

Please read: http://www.coli.uni-saarland.de/~fouvry/how-do-I.html
It may help you understand what you need to have PSTricks working with
your LaTeX document. I've tried, but getting results is very heavy and
time consuming tasks.

And, what is worth mention here, LyX does not support such trickery
execution of different types of LaTeX compilers. Some --shell-escape
added to pdflatex invocation helps with pst-pdf, but I could cause
pdflatex to crash every time you do not use PSTrick in your document.

In general, worth to try, but everyday usefulness in minor in my opinion.

On the other hand I heard Tikz gives good results with pdflatex:
http://www.texample.net/tikz/ but I hadn't chance to try.

Vertical align text to top in a row with images

2010-07-15 Thread Falk Sticken

Hi,

I have a table with images in a row. First column has paragraph cells 
with row descriptions. Unfortunately I can not figure out how to align 
the text vertical such that it is at the top of the row. I tried 
diffrent settings and also used a parbox enclosing the images, but the 
text in the first column is always aligned to the bottom. When I try to 
use 'top' alignment for the column the outcome is even worse, as the 
text is beneath the baseline.


Sample code:

\begin{tabular}{|{\raggedright}p{1.5in}|c|c|c|}
\hline
Pictures  \includegraphics[width=1.5in]{...}  
\includegraphics[width=1.5in]{...}  
\includegraphics[width=1.5in]{...}\tabularnewline

\hline
\end{tabular}

Falk

 I don't know if it would work, but you could try Insert  TeX Code just
 before the index, and fill this TeX Code box with
 \thispagestyle{plain} or \thispagestyle{fancy}
 
 If this doesn't work, you at least have some more keywords to try in
 google.

Hi Julien,
thanks for your reply ;-)

You proposal helped me to pin down the effect somewhat more.
Since i'm using the koma scrlttr2 class i had to use the command
\thispagestyle{scrheadings} (which is used in my stye file for this
document too.

This doesn't solve my problem, though.
It seems that the LaTeX command \printindex{} which is generated by LyX
is the culprit.
I suppose it issues a command like \thispagestyle{empty} because it is
starting sort of a new chapter.

Following this route i found a workaround. Her it is (in the hope that
may be helpful for somebody else)

* export my lyx file to LaTeX (pdflatex)

* run pdflatex from the command line on this a first time
(which generates an *.idx file)

* run makeindex on this file (without extension)
(which generates an *.ind file which will be input during the next
pdflatex run)

In my reply to your personal account i forgot the most important point ,-(
*** Edit the *.ind file ***
After the first line
\begin{theindex}
add the line
\thispagestyle{scrheadings}

* final run of pfdlatex on the *.tex source file

And here we are, the first page of the index has the desired header and
footer lines.


Happy LyXing

LyX + Beamer + MikTex 2008 = fail

Dear LyX users and developers,
   when I try to compile the beamer template provided with LyX, the
pdf is not generated but a number of errors occur. I have found that
the problem is due to the recent version of the package geometry.sty
provided with MikTeX 2008. The bug can be fixed with some line of TeX
code before the \documentclass command, but, while this is easy in
.tex documents, I found no way to fix the bug by using LyX. As a
consequence, beamer slides cannot be rendered in LyX. I hope
developers will soon fix the problem with a patch or a workaround.

Help: Newbie writing a report- Help in drawing diagrams particularly circuits

Re: Help: Newbie writing a report- Help in drawing diagrams particularly circuits

2010-07-15 Thread Rob Oakes
Hi Bob,

The best way to create specific types of drawings for a LyX document is to use 
a program designed for that purpose (like a circuit diagram editor) and then 
exporting to an appropriate image format (PDF, PNG, JPEG, etc.).  There may be 
LaTeX packages that can draw circuit diagrams (I wouldn't know, not my cup of 
tea), but the learning curve associated with those packages is far too steep to 
mount by your deadline.

Better to use what you know (even if that's stencil sets and pen/paper + a 
scanner), then to try and reinvent the wheel on a deadline.  Once the image is 
created, you can then add it to a document and use a float to add a caption.

Cheers,

Rob

[announce] LyXWinInstaller for LyX 1.6.7

2010-07-15 Thread Uwe Stöhr

Hello LyXers,

the alternative Windows installer for LyX 1.6.7 is now available.

This installer comes again with an update installer to update existing 
LyX 1.6.6.1 installation to LyX
1.6.7. NOTE: To be able to use this update installer, LyX 1.6.6.1 must 
have been installed with the

alternative Windows installer.

If you are using LyX 1.6.6 and not 1.6.6.1, I recommend to uninstall 
1.6.6 _completely_ and reinstall 1.6.7. This way you have an up to date 
installation including important security fixes in third-party programs 
like ImageMagick. (ImageMagick is used by LyX to convert images.)


-

The installer for this version can be downloaded from:
http://developer.berlios.de/project/showfiles.php?group_id=5117release_id=17719
and
http://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/bin/1.6.7/

(General infos about the installer can be found here:
 http://wiki.lyx.org/Windows/LyXWinInstaller )

Installer Changelog:
-
Version 4.25
- LyX 1.6.7
- updated to eLyXer 0.99
- updated to ImageMagick 6.6.3-0
- updated Qt libraries to version 4.6.3

 Public release of LyX version 1.6.7
 ===

 We are pleased to announce the release of LyX 1.6.7. This is the eighth
 maintenance release in the 1.6.x series.

 From the list of fixes and improvements, we'd like to highlight
 particularly that this release irons out all known stability problems with
 Qt 4.6. LyX 1.6.7 is our first release that is supposed to run smoothly
 with Qt 4.6, so we urge all distributors who use that version to upgrade
 LyX as well.

 A detailed list of changes is appended below, remaining known problems
 are listed in the file RELEASE-NOTES.

 All users are encouraged to upgrade to this version.

 In case you are wondering what LyX is, here is what
 http://www.lyx.org/ has to say on the subject:

   LyX is a document processor that encourages an approach to writing
   based on the structure of your documents, not their appearance. It
   is released under a Free Software/Open Source license.

   LyX is for people that write and want their writing to look great,
   right out of the box. No more endless tinkering with formatting
   details, 'finger painting' font attributes or futzing around with
   page boundaries. You just write. In the background, Prof. Knuth's
   legendary TeX typesetting engine makes you look good.

   On screen, LyX looks like any word processor; its printed output --
   or richly cross-referenced PDF, just as readily produced -- looks
   like nothing else. Gone are the days of industrially bland .docs,
   all looking similarly not-quite-right, yet coming out unpredictably
   different on different printer drivers. Gone are the crashes
   'eating' your dissertation the evening before going to press.

   LyX is stable and fully featured. It is a multi-platform, fully
   internationalized application running natively on Unix/Linux, the
   Macintosh and modern Windows platforms.

 You can download LyX 1.6.7 here (the .bz2 are compressed with bzip2,
 which yields smaller files):

ftp://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/stable/1.6.x/lyx-1.6.7.tar.gz
ftp://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/stable/1.6.x/lyx-1.6.7.tar.bz2
ftp://ftp.devel.lyx.org/pub/lyx/stable/lyx-1.6.7.tar.gz
ftp://ftp.devel.lyx.org/pub/lyx/stable/lyx-1.6.7.tar.bz2

 and it should propagate shortly to the following mirrors (which will
 also host the .bz2 versions):

ftp://ftp.lip6.fr/pub/lyx/stable/1.6.x/lyx-1.6.7.tar.gz
http://lyx.cybermirror.org/stable/1.6.x/lyx-1.6.7.tar.gz

http://lyx.mirror.fr/stable/1.6.x/lyx-1.6.7.tar.gz

 Prebuilt binaries (rpms for Linux distributions, Mac OS X and Windows
 installers) should soon be available at:

ftp://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/bin/1.6.7/

 If you already have the sources of the previous release (1.6.6.1), you may
 want to apply one of the following patches instead:

ftp://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/stable/1.6.x/patch-1.6.7.gz
ftp://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/stable/1.6.x/patch-1.6.7.bz2

 If you find what you think is a bug in LyX 1.6.7, you may either
 e-mail the LyX developers' mailing list (lyx-devel at lists.lyx.org),
 or open a bug report at http://www.lyx.org/trac/

 If you're having trouble using the new version of LyX, or have a
 question, first check out http://www.lyx.org/help/. If you can't find
 the answer there, e-mail the LyX users' list (lyx-users at lists.lyx.org
 ).

 Enjoy!

 The LyX team.


 What's new in version 1.6.7?
 

 ** Updates:
 ***

 * DOCUMENT INPUT/OUTPUT

 - New -f [--force-overwrite] command line flag. Without any argument (or
  with 'all' as argument) all files are silently overwritten on export
  from the command line. Using 'main' as argument, only the main file will

Key-Bindings for Zoom-In and Zoom-Out

2010-07-15 Thread Stephan Witt
Dear LyX users,

since some time it is more and more common to zoom-in or zoom-out the workspace 
of an application with Ctrl-plus or Ctrl-minus key-strokes. On a Apple Mac this 
would be Cmd-plus or Cmd-minus. Traditionally in LyX the Ctrl-minus keys 
produces an hyphenation hint. Therefore we have a conflict here.

On the one hand the new user would more likely expect Ctrl-plus/minus to act as 
zoom-in/out. On the other hand the experienced users may disagree with the 
change of behaviour if the standard key-binding of LyX for the hyphenation hint 
move to e. g. Ctrl-Shift-minus.

So I want to start a little poll here: 
please tell your pro or cons for binding the zoom-in/-out feature to 
Ctrl-plus/-minus and moving the current binding of Ctrl-minus.

Regards,

Stephan

 Hi Bob,
 
 The best way to create specific types of drawings for a LyX document
 is to use a program designed for that purpose (like a circuit diagram
 editor) and then exporting to an appropriate image format (PDF, PNG,
 JPEG, etc.).  There may be LaTeX packages that can draw circuit

Bob, 

In line with Rob's suggestion, I just checked Xfig's capabilities, and
they appear to be quite substantial.  A document link to something
addressing both Xfig and its use in drawing circuits is the following:

http://users.skynet.be/hugocoolens/linux/xfig-howto.pdf

Xfig has the electrical libraries built into it.

Once done, you export the result to an eps figure and import it into
LyX.

The only question is whether you know Xfig or not.  It is fairly easy to
do basic stuff.

Good luck!

Sorry all - false alarm.  For whatever reason, when I installed 1.6.7, the
default LyX switched to 2.0alpha4 on my system, and I did not notice this.

So it turns out that scrolling and dialogue boxes work fine in 1.6.7.
Again, sorry for the false alarm.

 From the list of fixes and improvements, we'd like to highlight
 particularly that this release irons out all known stability problems

 with Qt 4.6, so we urge all distributors who use that version to upgrade
 LyX as well.

 A detailed list of changes is appended below, remaining known problems
 are listed in the file RELEASE-NOTES.

 All users are encouraged to upgrade to this version.

 In case you are wondering what LyX is, here is what
 http://www.lyx.org/ has to say on the subject:

   LyX is a document processor that encourages an approach to writing
   based on the structure of your documents, not their appearance. It
   is released under a Free Software/Open Source license.

   LyX is for people that write and want their writing to look great,
   right out of the box. No more endless tinkering with formatting
   details, 'finger painting' font attributes or futzing around with
   page boundaries. You just write. In the background, Prof. Knuth's
   legendary TeX typesetting engine makes you look good.

   On screen, LyX looks like any word processor; its printed output --
   or richly cross-referenced PDF, just as readily produced -- looks
   like nothing else. Gone are the days of industrially bland .docs,
   all looking similarly not-quite-right, yet coming out unpredictably
   different on different printer drivers. Gone are the crashes
   'eating' your dissertation the evening before going to press.

   LyX is stable and fully featured. It is a multi-platform, fully
   internationalized application running natively on Unix/Linux, the
   Macintosh and modern Windows platforms.

 You can download LyX 1.6.7 here (the .bz2 are compressed with bzip2,
 which yields smaller files):

ftp://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/stable/1.6.x/lyx-1.6.7.tar.gz

As others have suggested...
for low learning curve: stencil sets and pen/paper + a scanner

export to TeX with
pstricks or one of the image formats]



for computer aided schematics (2D circuit diagrams): gschem from the gEDA set

under RHEL/CentOS after you have enabled the EPEL repository it is only a `yum

AFAIK it is also in fedora in these packages.
It took a couple of hours to get fairly comfortable with it for me, but I had 
not used a circuit

One thing needs to be understand and remembered: pdflatex does not
understand POSTSCRIPT. So everything further is a little bit tricky.

Please read: http://www.coli.uni-saarland.de/~fouvry/how-do-I.html
It may help you understand what you need to have PSTricks working with
your LaTeX document. I've tried, but getting results is very heavy and
time consuming tasks.

And, what is worth mention here, LyX does not support such trickery
execution of different types of LaTeX compilers. Some --shell-escape
added to pdflatex invocation helps with pst-pdf, but I could cause
pdflatex to crash every time you do not use PSTrick in your document.

In general, worth to try, but everyday usefulness in minor in my opinion.

On the other hand I heard Tikz gives good results with pdflatex:
http://www.texample.net/tikz/ but I hadn't chance to try.

Vertical align text to top in a row with images

2010-07-15 Thread Falk Sticken

Hi,

I have a table with images in a row. First column has paragraph cells 
with row descriptions. Unfortunately I can not figure out how to align 
the text vertical such that it is at the top of the row. I tried 
diffrent settings and also used a parbox enclosing the images, but the 
text in the first column is always aligned to the bottom. When I try to 
use 'top' alignment for the column the outcome is even worse, as the 
text is beneath the baseline.


Sample code:

\begin{tabular}{|>{\raggedright}p{1.5in}|c|c|c|}
\hline
Pictures & \includegraphics[width=1.5in]{...} & 
\includegraphics[width=1.5in]{...} &

Hi Julien,
thanks for your reply ;-)

You proposal helped me to pin down the effect somewhat more.
Since i'm using the koma scrlttr2 class i had to use the command
\thispagestyle{scrheadings} (which is used in my stye file for this
document too.

This doesn't solve my problem, though.
It seems that the LaTeX command \printindex{} which is generated by LyX
is the culprit.
I suppose it issues a command like \thispagestyle{empty} because it is
starting sort of a new chapter.

Following this route i found a workaround. Her it is (in the hope that
may be helpful for somebody else)

* export my lyx file to LaTeX (pdflatex)

* run pdflatex from the command line on this a first time
(which generates an *.idx file)

* run makeindex on this file (without extension)
(which generates an *.ind file which will be input during the next
pdflatex run)

In my reply to your personal account i forgot the most important point ,-(
*** Edit the *.ind file ***
After the first line
\begin{theindex}
add the line
\thispagestyle{scrheadings}

* final run of pfdlatex on the *.tex source file

And here we are, the first page of the index has the desired header and
footer lines.


Happy LyXing

Hellmut

LyX + Beamer + MikTex 2008 = fail

2010-07-15 Thread Corrado Mencar
Dear LyX users and developers,
   when I try to compile the beamer template provided with LyX, the
pdf is not generated but a number of errors occur. I have found that
the problem is due to the recent version of the package geometry.sty
provided with MikTeX 2008. The bug can be fixed with some line of TeX
code before the "\documentclass" command, but, while this is easy in
.tex documents, I found no way to fix the bug by using LyX. As a
consequence, beamer slides cannot be rendered in LyX. I hope
developers will soon fix the problem with a patch or a workaround.

Bye,

Corrado

Re: txfonts integral sign replaced with intersection operator

Hi,

I get this problem (still) from both pxfonts and txfonts.

The only workaround I have found is to use \varint rather than plain \int
for integrals.

Help: Newbie writing a report- Help in drawing diagrams particularly circuits

2010-07-15 Thread BOB Merhebi
Hello,

I am a newbie to LyX. I searched most manuals & wikis but could find nothing
about drawing diagrams (physics related). I am in urgent need of help as I
am writing a reports for my physics labs which are due in less than 24 hrs.
I particularly need to draw electrical ciruits.

You help is appreciated
thx

Sincerely Yours,

Re: Help: Newbie writing a report- Help in drawing diagrams particularly circuits

2010-07-15 Thread Rob Oakes
Hi Bob,

The best way to create specific types of drawings for a LyX document is to use 
a program designed for that purpose (like a circuit diagram editor) and then 
exporting to an appropriate image format (PDF, PNG, JPEG, etc.).  There may be 
LaTeX packages that can draw circuit diagrams (I wouldn't know, not my cup of 
tea), but the learning curve associated with those packages is far too steep to 
mount by your deadline.

Better to use what you know (even if that's stencil sets and pen/paper + a 
scanner), then to try and reinvent the wheel on a deadline.  Once the image is 
created, you can then add it to a document and use a float to add a caption.

Cheers,

Rob

[announce] LyXWinInstaller for LyX 1.6.7

2010-07-15 Thread Uwe Stöhr

Hello LyXers,

the alternative Windows installer for LyX 1.6.7 is now available.

This installer comes again with an update installer to update existing 
LyX 1.6.6.1 installation to LyX
1.6.7. NOTE: To be able to use this update installer, LyX 1.6.6.1 must 
have been installed with the

alternative Windows installer.

If you are using LyX 1.6.6 and not 1.6.6.1, I recommend to uninstall 
1.6.6 _completely_ and reinstall 1.6.7. This way you have an up to date 
installation including important security fixes in third-party programs 
like ImageMagick. (ImageMagick is used by LyX to convert images.)


-

The installer for this version can be downloaded from:
http://developer.berlios.de/project/showfiles.php?group_id=5117_id=17719
and
http://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/bin/1.6.7/

(General infos about the installer can be found here:
 http://wiki.lyx.org/Windows/LyXWinInstaller )

Installer Changelog:
-
Version 4.25
- LyX 1.6.7
- updated to eLyXer 0.99
- updated to ImageMagick 6.6.3-0
- updated Qt libraries to version 4.6.3
-

happy LyXing
Uwe

You can try xcircuitI use it with LyX with good results.  

LTSpice is also pretty good fand can export to EPS,  LTSpice is free from

It appears that mouse scrolling is broken on the Mac for LyX 1.6.7.  This
same problem is present in the alpha versions of 2.0 on the Mac, and it
looks like it slipped through the cracks for this release.

Any chance of a patch being released in the very near future to fix this
serious regression?

tex2lyx error (libboost related)

2010-07-15 Thread stefano franchi
Dear all,

on a new installation on a Kubuntu system, import of tex files failes.
Running tex2lyx from console produces the following error message:

tex2lyx: error while loading shared libraries:
libboost_filesystem-mt.so.1.38.0

On my system, I have the following:

/usr/lib/libboost_filesystem-mt.so -> libboost_filesystem.so.1.40.0

Can anyone enlighten me on how to solve the situation? Is version 1.38
required for tex2lyx to work? Or am I missing some other lib?

Thx,

Stefano

I believe the screenshot is from the LyX-2.0 alpha, where it is indeed

Thank you for the answer. I have solved the problem by removing the

The problem shows up for me when I undock the dialogue window.  When docked,
there is no problem.  And yes, this problem is in 1.6.7.

Key-Bindings for Zoom-In and Zoom-Out

2010-07-15 Thread Stephan Witt
Dear LyX users,

since some time it is more and more common to zoom-in or zoom-out the workspace 
of an application with Ctrl-plus or Ctrl-minus key-strokes. On a Apple Mac this 
would be Cmd-plus or Cmd-minus. Traditionally in LyX the Ctrl-minus keys 
produces an hyphenation hint. Therefore we have a conflict here.

On the one hand the new user would more likely expect Ctrl-plus/minus to act as 
zoom-in/out. On the other hand the experienced users may disagree with the 
change of behaviour if the standard key-binding of LyX for the hyphenation hint 
move to e. g. Ctrl-Shift-minus.

So I want to start a little poll here: 
please tell your pro or cons for binding the zoom-in/-out feature to 
Ctrl-plus/-minus and moving the current binding of Ctrl-minus.

Regards,

Stephan

In line with Rob's suggestion, I just checked Xfig's capabilities, and
they appear to be quite substantial.  A document link to something
addressing both Xfig and its use in drawing circuits is the following:

http://users.skynet.be/hugocoolens/linux/xfig-howto.pdf

Xfig has the electrical libraries built into it.

Once done, you export the result to an eps figure and import it into
LyX.

The only question is whether you know Xfig or not.  It is fairly easy to
do basic stuff.

Good luck!

Re: [ANNOUNCE] LyX 1.6.7 is released!

2010-07-15 Thread James C. Sutherland
Sorry all - false alarm.  For whatever reason, when I installed 1.6.7, the
default LyX switched to 2.0alpha4 on my system, and I did not notice this.

So it turns out that scrolling and dialogue boxes work fine in 1.6.7.
Again, sorry for the false alarm.

I do not use Ctrl-minus very often in LyX, but I zoom in and out in LyX using
ctrl+mouse wheel (and rarely use Ctrl-plus/Ctrl-minus to zoom in other
programs), so I have a slight preference to leave the binding as-is.

As others have suggested...
for low learning curve: stencil sets and pen/paper + a scanner
for quick but limited computer aided drawing including circuits: dia [can 
export to TeX with
pstricks or one of the image formats]



for computer aided schematics (2D circuit diagrams): gschem from the gEDA set 
of tools [output to an
image format]
under RHEL/CentOS after you have enabled the EPEL repository it is only a `yum 
install geda-gschem`
away. I also suggest installing geda-docs.
AFAIK it is also in fedora in these packages.
It took a couple of hours to get fairly comfortable with it for me, but I had 
not used a circuit
editor before, only DIA and a couple of CAD programs.

Have you tried to create a layout file for this document? If so, what 
have you done? It looks pretty much like an article, so you could start 
with:


\DeclareLaTeXClass{article (ICCAS Conference)}
Input article.layout

and save it as ICCAS2010.layout, and see how well it works.

The error was from the version of tex2lyx that came with the 1.6.5  packaged
version. I have now downloaded and compiled lyx 2 alpha4 and _its_  tex2lyx
version works flawlessly. I didn't configure with included boost.
