Compatibility Mac - Linux

2015-05-06 Thread Ygo Kanaki
The main reason why me and my colleagues switched from  MS-Word to Lyx is the 
problems we had with all the different Office versions, and problem we had 
opening Word-files in OpenOffice, etcetera. That was why we use Lyx.

Today I get a .lyx file from a colleague with a Mac. I try to open the Lyx 
file, and I get this error message:

/mnt/sda1/Dropbox/lithouse_shared_folder/Offers quotes prospects that we are 
working on/Jolly_X/20150506/offer_27.11.2013.lyx is from a newer version of 
LyX and the lyx2lyx script failed to convert it.

So I try to update my Lyx on Ubuntu 14.04 to a later version, but there is 
nothing to update. I have the most recent version (2.0.6 from April 2013) 
while my colleague has 2.1.2.2. from November 2014. I am out of luck.

We're on Openoffice again. :(

Wow, that was quick: THREE responses within five minutes. Can't complain 
about that!

I installed the .ppa as instructed on the lyx website, updated Synaptic and 
indeed a newer version appeared. Installed the newer version, all ok.

But now when I open my colleagues Lyx file I get three errors instead of 
one:

===
Due to some error in it, the layout file: could not be loaded. A default 
textclass with default layouts will be used. LyX will not be able to 
produce correct output.

The layout file: scrartcl could not be found. A default textclass with 
default layouts will be used. LyX will not be able to produce correct 
output.

The module basic has been requested by this document but has not been found 
in the list of available modules. If you recently installed it, you 
probably need to reconfigure LyX.
===

Also in Document / Settings I see: Unknown text class scrartcl. Actually 
almost all of my document classes are greyed out now.

On my file system I find these two files:

/usr/share/lyx/layouts/scrartcl.layout
/usr/share/doc/texlive-doc/latex/koma-script/scrartcl.html

And there are more files like these in:
/usr/share/lyx/layouts
/usr/share/lyx2.0/layouts/

But I guess I have to move some stuff from A to B, or instruct Lyx where to 
look. Anybody knows the quick solution? Actually I feel sorry about this 
OpenOffice-stuff,  I don't want to leave Lyx.

Ygo.

This I got:

$ kpsewhich scrartcl.cls
/usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/latex/koma-script/scrartcl.cls

I did Tools / Reconfigure, I think that solved most of the problems. I can 
now open my colleagues document again without errors, and I get the correct 
pdf-output. Fixed!

I still see a whole bunch of greyed-out document classes, but I don't care 
for now, I'll try to fix that later. Lyx works again!

Thanks to you all.
