LyX 2.06

2013-05-09 Thread Alain Didierjean
I just installed lyx 2.06 on my gentoo computer. The problem is I can't find 
any reference to this version on the lyx website, the last being cited is 
2.05.1. What about 2.06 ? stable ? new features ?

Weird X display

2012-02-09 Thread Alain Didierjean
Since I tried to swich to a frame buffered graphical display, following all 
steps described in the Framebuffer and Radeon pages of the gentoo wiki, all I 
get is a display of vertical colored stripes, the pointer appearing as a 
square. 
Knowned problem ? where should I look in the arcane config of FB, X and radeon 
(my graphic card is an ATI 3600)? I'm desperate.

 making a copy of the .lyx files and using a plain text editor to

don't compile on lyx2.0x as they used to, failing on each and every cross 
reference with a message like:

Of course, removing the cross references fix the problem... creating a new 
label and cross ref brings it back.
- is this a known problem ?
- any known way to fix this ?
- any idea ?

Did it. Doesn't make any difference.
Any other suggestions ? What's this "active character" problem about ?
It's a mess as I need this documents printed on monday !

I recompiled lyx  yesterday (on a gentoo system), adding support to luatex and 
xetex. Now, none of the book class documents compile (they use to compile 
without any problem). Every once in a while, compile fails with a message like:

 This looks odd, with the \endcsname\space. Can you try to produce a
 minimal test document that exhibits the problem? I.e., keep deleting
 stuff until the problem goes away.

more than weird. This seems linked to the use of any book class. articles, 
letter, lettre, exam compile ok while a book class document of one line (title)

You build LyX yourself? On what platform? You've installed the developer 
version of hunspell library (including header files)?

I did compile LyX as well as hunspell on my machine, as well as any other 
package: it's an amd64 gentoo system. As for configuring Lyx so it uses 
hunspell, just go to Tools/Preferences/Language/Spellchecker.

All together 982 lines as above.
Besides that, gentoo amd64 works fine on my box and I emerge everyday packages 
to upgrade, except those which are kde's.
Questions:
- what the hell is this mess, did I do something wrong ?
- have any of you got the same kind of troubles ?
- is there a way to go back to an up to date clean install, I mean besides 
reinstalling from scratch or going for Ubuntu ?
Reasons that make me go for gentoo 8 or 9 years ago:
- excellent docs. (as of to-day, some docs need updating);
- easyness of maintenance, no need for periodical reinstall (I'm not sure this 
time);
- stable packages are renewed in time, not too soon, not too late;
- portage works like a charm.
Hope I can get some help

localizing lyx

2011-05-14 Thread Alain DIDIERJEAN
Following the openrc update in gentoo amd64, all locale variables suddenly 
vanished. I created a /etc/env.d/02locale file which includes 
LANG=fr_FR.UTF-8.
lyx loads with english menus. It's only after exporting LANG from .bashrc that 
I can launch it from a shell with its french menus. To achieve the same effect 
from KDE menu, I have to set the launch command to LANG=fr_FR.UTF-8 lyx.
My preference would be a global setting (as it used to be), as all users on my 
machine are french.
I have the same problem with most of the apps.
Any comments ?

One option is to do InsertFormattingClear Double Page before each of them.

Try something like this in a layout file:

The cleardoublepage{} command forces the beginning of chapters on an odd page. 
Finally I use the openany option and
cleardoublepage{} whenever I want to make sure a chapter stars on an odd page. 
It works fine.

See Richard, you and probably 20 other people on this list ALWAYS know 
what's available. I've used Openany but didn't remember it. People 
regularly reply to a question How do I make it do such and such?, 
you guys reply oh, you just \usepackage{so_and_so} and you're right, 
it works. You guys have spectacular memories.

Frustrating for me is I have no such memory, and unless I can review 
all my layout files and find an answer, I'll have to re-ask the 
question. CTAN is no help because it lists hundreds of packages, but 
not by function. For whatever reason Google ends up listing solutions 
like I do -- writing a bunch of LaTeX to do the job because the author 
didn't know about a simple package.

I'm thinking if there's a way we can create a document that lists 
packages and other little tricks (openany for instance) **BY 
FUNCTIONALITY**, newbies stand a fighting chance, people like me can 
remember in a matter of minutes rather than hours (or worse yet, 
reinventing the wheel), and people like you will get less of the same 
old questions.

I think the format of this resource should be a single web page with 
lots of links, arranged in a hierarchy. A good example is my Linux 
Library page:

http://www.troubleshooters.com/linux/index.htm

The beautiful thing about this page is you can either drill down, or 
if that doesn't work, you can search the single page for keywords.

Another wonderful thing about it is it's actually maintained as a tab 
indented outline (by VimOutliner or Emacs org mode or with any text 
editor). So adding a new resource is almost instantaneous. Then you 
just run an export program that turns it into an HTML page. In my 
opinion this is much cleaner, easier, and faster than the traditional 
Wiki page.

If you guys want to do it this way I'll be glad to give you the source 
for Linux Library's HTML export, and I'll modify it so that for each 
group you see the navigation down to it. I'll also take a primary role 
in putting this hierarchical list of links together and pointing to 
existing documentation resources, and maybe writing some new ones for 
the project.

If we do this, people with great memories won't be the only ones who 
know everything, and people with great memories will have much more 
time to do real work rather than ask repetitive questions.


Bright idea. I support it.

Another wonderful thing about it is it's actually maintained as a tab 
indented outline (by VimOutliner or Emacs org mode or with any text 
editor). So adding a new resource is almost instantaneous. Then you 
just run an export program that turns it into an HTML page. In my 
opinion this is much cleaner, easier, and faster than the traditional 
Wiki page.

If you guys want to do it this way I'll be glad to give you the source 
for Linux Library's HTML export, and I'll modify it so that for each 
group you see the navigation down to it. I'll also take a primary role 
in putting this hierarchical list of links together and pointing to 
existing documentation resources, and maybe writing some new ones for 
the project.

If we do this, people with great memories won't be the only ones who 
know everything, and people with great memories will have much more 
time to do real work rather than ask repetitive questions.


Bright idea. I support it.

Try something like this in a layout file:
Style ChapterDPage
CopyStyle Chapter
LaTeXCommand chapterdpage
Preamble
\newcommand\chapterdpage[1]{\cleardoublepage\chapter{#1}}
EndPreamble
End

Richard

PS Please keep questions on the list, in case someone else was watching
the thread, and so that answers will be archived for later searching.

The cleardoublepage{} command forces the beginning of chapters on an odd page. 
Finally I use the openany option and
cleardoublepage{} whenever I want to make sure a chapter stars on an odd page. 
It works fine.
By the way, the I'm typesetting in lyx the 'Oeuvres complètes' of Arthur 
Rimbaud as provided by Gutemberg project. If anyone is interested, let me know, 
I'll be glad to send it as a lyx or pdf file whenever it's finished.
Thanks, Richard for the help,

See Richard, you and probably 20 other people on this list ALWAYS know 
what's available. I've used Openany but didn't remember it. People 
regularly reply to a question "How do I make it do such and such?", 
you guys reply "oh, you just \usepackage{so_and_so}" and you're right, 
it works. You guys have spectacular memories.

Frustrating for me is I have no such memory, and unless I can review 
all my layout files and find an answer, I'll have to re-ask the 
question. CTAN is no help because it lists hundreds of packages, but 
not by function. For whatever reason Google ends up listing solutions 
like I do -- writing a bunch of LaTeX to do the job because the author 
didn't know about a simple package.

I'm thinking if there's a way we can create a document that lists 
packages and other little tricks (openany for instance) **BY 
FUNCTIONALITY**, newbies stand a fighting chance, people like me can 
remember in a matter of minutes rather than hours (or worse yet, 
reinventing the wheel), and people like you will get less of the same 
old questions.

I think the format of this resource should be a single web page with 
lots of links, arranged in a hierarchy. A good example is my Linux 
Library page:

http://www.troubleshooters.com/linux/index.htm

The beautiful thing about this page is you can either drill down, or 
if that doesn't work, you can search the single page for keywords.

Another wonderful thing about it is it's actually maintained as a tab 
indented outline (by VimOutliner or Emacs org mode or with any text 
editor). So adding a new resource is almost instantaneous. Then you

Missing features

2010-12-16 Thread alain . didierjean

I just updated to LyX 1.6.8 on my gentoo amd64 box. Which mean I downloaded the
sources and compiled locally.
It appears that some features are missing or unreachable:
- no menu item to insert pagebreaks, hyperlinks, URL
- no way to display available symbols
- no way to spit main window.
There might be other missing features that I havn't found yet.

So what happened ? Is it my compile or are they gone from this version ?
Will they be back on 2.0 ?

a footnote in a footnote

2009-10-28 Thread alain . didierjean

At the moment I'm trying to demonstrate the power of TeX  LyX to an old friend
of mine who plans to write a book. For that purpose, I have pasted a text (in
french  latin) document of his, an try to shape it with LyX. My old friend is
delighted by what he sees, as compared with his usual .doc.
Now I have a problem : at some point of his text, there is a footnote that
includes a footnote. LyX refuses to include footnotes in footnotes. I tried
\footnotemark and \footnotetext, that doesn't work. Is there a LyX or LaTeX
solution to that problem? I'm pretty sure my old friend will be sorry not to be
able to switch to LyX, which doesn't let you have footnotes in footnotes...

 What OS are you using? On Windows, you can change the lyx.bat file when you
 have installed LyX with
 the alternative installer, on Linux, you can change the menu language in the
 preferences menu. In
 both cases you need to restart LyX afterwards.

exam.layout, where ?

2008-11-09 Thread alain . didierjean
I can't find an exam.layout to use exam.cls in lyx? I used to have a working 
one but can't remember where I found it. Any cue ?
Thanks in advance,

Texlive for lyx

2008-04-29 Thread alain . didierjean
I use lyx 1.5.4 with tetex on a Gentoo computer. It works fine;
I'm thinking about switching to texlive, as tetex seems on a deadend. Has anyone
done it yet ? Got any problem ? How does LyX work with it ?
Please let me know

Gentoo future

2008-04-20 Thread alain . didierjean
After being a user  (for at least a year each) of Redhat, Suse, Debian I finally
went to Gentoo and intend to stick to it.
What I like most:
- I had to reinstall only once, when I changed my computer. That's great !
Experience has taught me that, should a new version be issued, the safer and
least time consuming way to keep up with other linux is to reinstall. Not on
Gentoo!

- the other great feature is the abundant, detailed and practical documentation.
You're never left on your own.

Which is where a problem lies: the doc being so big, most of the time, the best
way to find what you're looking for is to ask for a pointer on this list. It
sure works, but I think it's about time to launch a help indexing project.What
do you think folks?

Cannot print from gv

2008-03-05 Thread alain . didierjean

I can't print a single page from gv anymore, I get an error:


cupsdoprint -P 'BHL' -J 'gv_47ce6be7_1_top_cmd.ps.tmp' -H
'/var/run/cups/cups.sock:631' -U 'alain' -o ' Resolution=1200x600dpi copies=1
multiple-document-handling=separate-documents-collated-copies page-bottom=6
page-left=6 page-right=9 page-top=6' '/tmp/gv_47ce6be7_1_top_cmd.ps.tmp' :
execution failed with message:
client-error-not-found

As a matter of fact gv_47ce6be7_1_top_cmd.ps.tmp is not created in /tmp. Is it
me or a more general problem ?
Any suggestion ? I re-emerged gv to no avail

-Classic UI toolbars

2007-08-21 Thread alain . didierjean
I like Classic UI better than Default and would use it if only... I could find a
way to modify toolbars showing from it. (Hope my poor english is clear enough
guys). A few questions:
1) Is there a way to choose which toolbars show and which don't from Classic UI
?
2) After a quick look, I couldn't figure out how to add this feature as a menu
item in Classic UI. Anybody can help ?
3) My personal feeling is such a feature belongs to Preferences. Am I wrong ?
Thanks for the help,

PS: I know it's been said before, never mind: USING LYX 1.5.1 is GREAT.
Thanks to the developers.

Help menu

Reference.lyx is not yet available in french and is missing from the help menu.
How do I get the english version of the file back to the menu?
I tried a hard link in /usr/share/lyx/doc/fr and reconfigure to no avail...
