problem with pdfpages

2008-02-01 Thread Eli Brosh
Hello
I am trying to  include a pdf file in a LyX document.
I have the TeX-Live package installed in my computer. If I understand
correctly, it includes pdfpages.

I put the phrase \usepackage{pdfpages} in the LateX preamble for the
document.
Afterwards, I wrote in ERT: \includepdf[pages=1-11]{filename.pdf}
The filename.pdf is saved in the same folder as the LyX document.


Now, when I try to view the document as dvi, I get the error message:
Package pdfpages Error:You produce DVI output but pdf output
Undefined control sequence.
Missing $ inserted
Extra }, or forgotten $.
Missing $ inserted.


When I try to produce a pdf output, I get the error message:
LyX: Cannot view file
File does not exist:
/tmp/lyx_tmpdir21859Tr9iSI/lyx_tmpbuf0/newfile.pdf

What is wrong ?
Is there an easy way to insert the pdf file into the LyX document ?
Please, try to give a simple and specific answer as I am new to LyX, as well
as to LaTeX .
I use Ubuntu Feisty (quite new to linux as well).

Thanks
Eli

Thanks
I tried to remove the extension but it did not change the error messages.
I'll keep trying.
Is there an alternative to pdfpages that works with tetex istead of tex-live ?

I don't know if this is the source of your problem, but I always omit the .pdf 
extension. So:


\includepdf[pages=1-11]{filename}

I usually make the temp directory ( you can change it
in the preferences) someplace close to where the
actual document is.Copy and PAste the .pdf's you
want to include into the temp directory.   Then you
should be able to produce output.

Thanks.
I tried it: I saw in the preference where the temp directory is and
I put the pdf file there.
But, it did not change the error messages and did not produce the result.
Is there an alternative to this pdfpages package ?

citation in round brackets

2008-07-08 Thread Eli Brosh
Hello,
I am using LyX with the native bibliography facility.
Now, when I insert a citation in the text, the result is a reference in
square brackets [1] or, if I put a different label [different label].
Is there a simple method to change the brackets around the label from square
to round, like (1) and (different label) ?

Thanks
Eli Brosh


epsilon and varepsilon

2008-10-30 Thread Eli Brosh
Hello,
I encountered a problem when trying to use \epsilon and \varepsilon symbols.
When I typed these symbols in the math mode, they look different in the LyX
window.
However, in the PDF made using pdfLaTeX and in the DVI the symbols look
identical.
What can I do to make the pdfLaTeX distinguish between the two ?

I am using LyX 1.5.5

Thanks,
Eli

Thank you Uwe,
I changed the font to default and encoding to utf8 and the problem was gone.

Thanks again,

 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.
