Greek and degree-sign characters in listing

2014-07-01 Thread Alexander Berg

Dear all,

i am using Lyx 2.1.0 on Arch Linux x86 and i hope that somebody out 
there can help me :). Google told me nothing helpful.


I am trying to export a document (class: article) to pdf. There are some 
listings with greek characters and degree signs the appendix of this 
document. ( Insert-Program Listing, Insert-File(plain text) )


If i try to export this document via pdflatex it tells me that there is 
no representation for these characters in the current encoding. After 
confirming with 'OK' the export gets done and all mentioned characters 
are missing.


Using LuaTeX or XeTeX there are no dialogs, but some Error ... UTF-16 
... are displayed in the status line for a second. Afterthe export is 
done the greek characters are missing and the degree-sign is represented 
as an 'ř'.


What i am doing wrong and how can i fix it?


Thanks in advance!


Regards,
Alex

I agree. Alexander, whenever posting a question or bug report, minimal
examples are great. And since you are on Linux, I can say that I find
that Linux users/developers especially find them helpful. See for
example

That said, I know nothing about this particular problem and will not
be able to help you (even with an MWE). But I hope someone can help

 You can also use the chngcntr package to do the same sort of thing:
  \usepackage{chngcntr}
  \counterwithin*{section}{part}
 But for this simple purpose you probably don't need to do that.
