1.6 Has Issues With Minipage Options ?

2008-11-12 Thread Mike Meredith
Hi

I was previously able (in version 1.5.6) to right-click on a minipage
(or the little grey flag saying Box (Minipage)) to get a little
dialog box containing options for changing minipages. 

I no longer get this with my locally compiled version of Lyx 1.6. Is
this specific to me or a more general problem ?

 Do you get a context menu with Settings at the bottom? If so, click 
 Settings.
 
 I'm not sure Settings is very clear. Maybe Options would be
 better?

Ak! Too much work has frazzled my brain ... I was going to mention this

 I'm guessing you have some kind of conflict with your preferences.
 Did you have a customized bind file? or ui file? Maybe the best thing
 to do here would be to copy your old LyX user directory elsewhere and
 let LyX create a new one for you.

Yes removing ~/.lyx seems to have sorted that out. Thanks.

An Evening with Lyx and IRIX

2001-07-26 Thread Mike Meredith

-BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-

Hi

Well despite saying I'd have a look at compiling lyx with MIPSpro C++, 
I tried with gcc first --- if I'm going to compile lyx I'd like to end 
up with something that works at the end of it. I'll try again with 
MIPSpro C++ tonight.

This message should probably go to the development list as well, but 
due to rather bizarre mail config problems here (all my fault) I can't 
do that. It might be worth adding a special README for IRIX (fighting 
configure is spectacularly irritating and many people would give up).

Lyx version: last night's 1.2cvs
IRIX: 6.5.8
GCC: 2.95.3

1As root :-
 cd /usr/lib
 mv libXpm.so libXpm.so.dis
 mv libXpm.a libXpm.a.dis
 cd /usr/lib32
 mv libXpm.so libXpm.so.dis
 mv libXpm.a libXpm.a.dis
 cd /usr/include/X11
 mv xpm.h xpm.h.dis

 This assumes that you have a modern version of Xpm somewhere
 built with '-n32'.

2Configure with the following :-

 LDFLAGS=-L/usr/lib32 -L/usr/freeware/lib32 -L/opt/lib \
 ./configure --prefix=/opt

 The exact -L options to add to LDFLAGS will vary from system to
 system. If you're using csh this might not work --- do yourself
 a favour and use a decent shell (zsh).

 There's a hint in the generated configure file that there's
 support for coping with IRIX's multiple ABI's, but this 
 doesn't seem to work (at least for me).

3Go into the po subdirectory and edit the Makefile. For every
 instance of the find command, replace with an absolute path to
 the GNU version of find (/usr/freeware/bin/find).

 [The -path option to find is GNU-specific]

4Edit boost/boost/detail/limits.hpp and change line 38 to read 
:-

 #if defined(__sparc) || defined(__sparc__) || 
defined(__powerpc__) || defined(__hppa) || defined(__mips)

 (i.e. add 'defined(__mips)' to the end of the line)

 No idea whether this really works or not, but Lyx now compiles
 and runs.

3Unwind step 1 (or things might break).

Sounds like something has already decompressed the file for you and

tar xvf LyXTips.tgz

 If this is so I think you should change the compressing format to
 simple *.zip which can be decompressed with Windows software anyway.
