 So tht's how Python was created! Far out! Hey man, pass that bad boy
 over here! Pfft. Hey man, cough cough, this is good stuff, cough
 giggle! Now where did I put those potato chips?

 If we ever have a LyX history, I hope Dekl Tsur is featured. He
 singlehandedly kept me from bailing in 2001, a couple months after I
 started using LyX. At the time I needed character styles, but LyX had
 none. Dekl showed me some LaTeX that allowed me to create a linkage
 between color and kludge character styles I created. It was weird but
 enabled me to write Troubleshooting Techniques of the Successful
 Technologist. Here's a description of Dekl's workaround:


 http://www.troubleshooters.com/linux/lyx/self_publish_lyx.htm#SimulatingCharacterStylesWithColorPseudostyles

 About 4 years later LyX 1.4.0 got character styles and they were
 wonderful, but Dekl's workaround was what enabled me to use LyX from
 2001 til 2006.

 Try \setbeamercovered{transparent} in the preamble.  You can adjust how dark 
 the
 hidden text is by setting a value between 0 and 100 for transparent, e.g.
 \setbeamercovered{transparent=25}.

Re: Engineering student considering LyX for Thesis

2011-10-18 Thread Julio Rojas
I have written my 300 pages thesis completely in LyX, with many
tables, equations and figures. It is not really a problem if you can
work on one of the standard classes, like Memoir. If you have to adapt
to a particular format/layout it can be a hell at the beginning, but
afterwards it will become as natural as if you are using a standard
class.

Use master/child documents, create the preamble in a separate file and
include it in every document and you will be capable of making a huge
document with no appreciable lost of performance.

Good luck.

 My current situation is this: I am working on my Master Thesis and

 final
 project will be - I imagine that the final document will probably exceed
 100
 pages, but where I am uncertain of size I am certain that the document
 will
 contain considerable amounts of graphs and tables - rather more than I am
 comfortable working with in Word 2010.

 LyX has no problem with size.

 Some things may get slower with a really big document, but it is still
 perfectly stable. Big does not cause crashes, big does not cause faults.
 Cross references and table of contents will still be correct - everytime.

 I have written a 284 page book - no problem. Writing your thesis may be
 a lot of work - but the work will be on the thesis, not on LyX issues with a
 large document full of graphs.

 You will have to learn LyX of course. Simply writing, and adding tables,
 formulas and figures is easy. If there are very specific formatting
 requirements, then that may be tricky. In such cases, look at the user guide
 first, and ask here if the guide is not enough.

 As for size - I have created torture test documents of 1600 and 4
 pages. The 4 page document is slow to navigate, but it works. Still no
 crashes.

 The LyX User guide is over 160 pages. And it uses most LyX features.
 Experiment with that, if you worry about size issues. :-)

 Reformatting a big document is usually no problem. You can change
 the margins or paper size for a 100-page document and expect no problems.
 (Well, a figure/table too big for the new paper size will need
 some attention.)

 My questions are fairly simple to ask, I am not certain that everybody
 will
 agree on the answers but rough estimates are all I am looking for anyway.
 So
 here goes:

 1. Considering LyX over Word, how much time would I approximately need to
 learn LyX to the extent that I can actually produce text, including
 graphics
 and formulas(!), from a template?

 All that is easy stuff. Writing plain text in LyX is as easy as in word.
 When you need a heading, you select a heading from a drop-down list.
 Similiar for bullet points and such. (There are also keyboard
 shortcuts to speed things up, but that can wait.)

 Including graphichs can be as simple as menu Insert-Graphics, then type
 the file name (or select it) in a dialog. you can also set the
 size of your graphic in the same dialog.

 Usually, one put a figure in something called a float. This allow better
 page breaking, and cross references. (I.e. you can have LyX
 produce references like figure 17 on page 62, and the numbers will always
 be right. Even if you write some more pages at the beginning...)

 Formulas is an area where LyX is better than word. You can put together any
 formula you can imagine, using menus and toolbars. Using toolbars is the
 easy (but somewhat slow) way. If you write lots of math, learn some of the
 speed shortcuts. Like typing \alpha instead of picking the alpha symbol
 from the toolbar everytime.

 How much time you will need is hard to say. But you are an engineering
 student, so learning the easier sides of LyX will likely be quick.

 You should be able to write text with formulas and figures the first day.
 Becoming good at LyX takes longer, of course.

 2. What can I reasonably expect my learning curve to be after having
 learned
 the bare basics; what I mean is, is it simple to teach LyX to oneself and
 how easy is it to solve problems when encountered?

 LyX comes with documentation full of examples. You can look at the samples
 for stuff you want, or even cutpaste from them.

 3. And finally, being a skilled user of Word would I - ultimately - save
 or
 spend time if I did try my luck on LyX?

 For something as big as a thesis, I believe the time needed to learn LyX
 will be saved. You say you don't want to do a big document in word - and
 that says it all really. You will need some learning, but size won't be the
 problem. And the printout will likely look better than anything made in word
 anyway. Well, adding some decorations in word *is* easier, but word fall
 apart on more basic stuff like line breaking. (There is a reason word

 .tex-file, and switch to input instead of include. And then you do what
 I was told before, so that LyX knows where the pdf-file can be found... (--

 diagrams in the font used by the main document.

 Inkscape creates two files: a pdf-file containing the drawing, and a
 tex-file which adds all text to the drawing and also loads the pdf-file. LyX
 seems to ignore the pdf file, since it is not referenced anywhere in the
 LyX-File. As a result, I get an error: foo.pdf cannot be found.

 Trying to use \graphicspath to tell latex where to look for the pdf doesn't
 help: I would have to add an absolute path to the pdf, which is pointless if
 you work on two machines, one linux, one windows... Using a relative path
 doesn't work, because LyX ignores the pdf-file and simply doesn't copy it to
 the temp-folder.

 Is there any way to tell LyX that the pdf-file exists and needs to be
 copied to the temp-folder, so latex can find it?

 Did I miss anything?

Re: Strange behavior

The problem can be twosome. On the one hand, some corrupted temporary
files created by LyX's compilation can be generating the problem. On
the other hand, if you compiled a Latex version on the same folder the
Lyx file is, I think it might be creating some havoc. Le us wait to
see if the developers can confirm both situations as problem sources.

 Problem solved :-)

 Thanks to everyone, and particularly to Julio for pointing me in the
 right direction. As he guessed, the problem was not with Lyx, but with
 the environment that Kde works with. I always launch my applications
 from Krunner (the little Kde app that offer a command line-like
 mini-screen). After a lot of searching, I discovered that:

 1. Krunner uses the PATH variables set by startkde (the script that
 starts the KDE desktop)

 2. startkde does two things, path-wise:
   a - first it uses the PATH settings it inherits from the process it
 is run from;
   b - then it looks for executable (i.e scripts) files in kde's  /env
  directories (e.g. in $HOME/.kde4/env and other env dirs system wide)
   c - it runs any executable files it finds

 3. To align the PATH variable in a bash shell (which I set in .profile
 and .bash_profile) with krunner's, I wrote a one-line file which
 exports  the correct path, called it profile.sh, made it executable,
 and put it in a newly created  dir ~HOME/.kde4/env

 after logging out and restarting kde, lyx now finds TL2011 when
 launched  from a shell and from Krunner.


 Thanks to everyone.

 Stefano

 Stefano,

  I don't have a generic answer but can write that I've had no problems
 upgrading TeXLive. I run Slackware and there's a SlackBuild script that
 correctly compiles everthing. Of course, one compressed source file is 1.2G
 in size so it takes a while to download, and the build also takes a long
 time, a lot of disk space (about 5G), and strsses the CPU.

  But, when the package is built, I upgrade the installation, then invoke
 LyX to check. It fires right up and works without any involvement by me.

 Hi Rich,

 I am on Kubuntu, but did not use its Debian-derived package system to
 upgrade Texlive. I went at it directly with the Texlive net installer.
 Installation was fine. Indeed, I am now using lyx to write, exporting
 the file to Latex, and then doing all my compilations either from the
 command line or from Kile.
 It is just Lyx that refuses to see the new installation. Perhaps I
 should trash the relevant config files in my ~/.lyx folder? Can anyone
 know which ones?


 Best,

 Stefano

Re: Biber

2011-08-26 Thread Julio Rojas
I removed the version of biber I had previously installed.

jcredberry@2e14-200305:/usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf/tex/latex$ biber -v
biber version: 0.9.4

But Lyx is still looking for textlive 2009 (which is also installed).
Do you know how can I make it to look at texlive 2011 (yes, I
reconfigured several times after installation)?

Paths updated. Compiling with bibtex everything is fine. Version shown:

This is 8-bit Big BibTeX version 0.99d

Biber, same error. Maybe some permission problem as to where this .bcf

 What is your biblatex version? (Look in the log file, it is well possible that
 an older version from texlive 2009 is used, unless you have adjusted the path
 settings).

Sorry Jürgen, I misread your question.

 Second, I have tried both, including and not including backend=biber in

 Both is wrong. You have to pass the option to biblatex directly with your
 package call, i.e.

 \usepackage[...,backend=biber]{biblatex}

 Please read the biblatex manual for details on how to load the package.

  Yes, it seems OK.
 
  Now let's clarify if the basic settings are correct:
 
  First, did you really pass the option backend=biber to biblatex?
 
  Then, please tell us how you set up biber. Did you specify any options
  or just select biber from the dropdown list?
 
  Also, posting the whole LaTeX log file might shed some light on things.

What I usually do is generate the PDF with the equations, open the PDF
with Inkscape and save them as GIFs or PNGs.

Sounds cumbersome, but beats the hell out of mathtype!

 I would normally use beamer, but now I'm forced to use ppt for my part of

 I just want something like this:

 y = x
 \end{equation}
 \item Another equation
 \begin{equation}
 y = x
 \end{equation}
 ...

 You get the idea.

 I see no reasonable way to do this in ppt.  I just ran out
 (electronically) and
 bought mathtype.  It looks like if I was using word, I could do this sort
 of
 thing.  But not ppt.  It has no concept of boxes and glue.

 The only thing I can do AFAIK is:
 Make an itemized (bullet) list
 Make ever other item in the list blank to leave some space
 Glue in the mathtype equations, MANUALLY trying to align them, and hoping
 that
 nothing moves the items of text, because the equations are just pictures,
 and
 aren't actually attached to anything.

 I know _nothing_ about ppt.  Is there any better way?

 No idea - what I did was created pdfs and converted them to ppt. But
 difficult, if you have to stick to a certain layout.
 I remember that I had a script which did that (convert pdf to picture, add
 slides with one ex-pdf per page and bundle to ppt), but I can't find it.

 Just found something similar:
   http://wifo.eecs.berkeley.edu/wiki/doku.php/latex:latex_resources

 Cheers and good luck if you really have to use PP,

Small example working perfectly with biber. Even with the same
preamble and configuration (a parent file and a lorem ipsum child
file). The only change is a reduced bib file with some selected
entries. Maybe some problem processing the bib file itself?
