How to wrap text around a figure?

2012-11-25 Thread Alasdair Reed
Hi, I am trying to wrap some text around a figure.  Example the figure
should be a third the way down the page up against the left margin,
with the text flowing along the top of the figure and down the right
hand side of the figure resuming from the left hand margin once the
bottom of the figure is reached. Using figure wrap float the figure
is placed in the middle of the page and the text appears above and
below the figure but does not flow round it. 
Which is the best way to
achieve this aim?

Hi,

Is that right?  Which logfile should I check?  The
dialogue /documents/settings/fonts/use non-Tex fonts via XeTex/LuaTex,
is greyed out. The package fontspec needs to be installed to use this
dialogue box, it is installed in TexLive2011

 It won't be activated until you comiple something. Create a new Lyx
 file with just a word in in it and then do Viewpdflatex (for
 instance). After successful compilaiton you should be able to see the
 log file

 Right, I guess the problem is that lyx finds the ubuntu packages
 before it hits texlive.
 
 First of all: have you reconfigured Lyx (ToolsReconfigure)? It may
 be all you need.
 
 If that does not work, a couple of options:
 
 1. Uninstall the Ubuntu text-live package. This may not be feasible,
 though, because you probably have it as a dependence of Lyx and
 possibly other packages
 There is a way to replace Ubuntu's outdated texlive with a dummy
 package but I am afraid I forget how to do it. Other people on the
 list may know (I left Ubuntu some time ago).
 
 2. Check the order of your executable path in your $PATH environmental
 variable. In fact, open a terminal and do
 
 $which pdflatex
 
 you should get something like:
 /usr/local/texlive/2011/bin/x86_64-linux/pdflatex
 
 
 and then do something like:
 
 $kpsewhich fontspec.sty
 
 
 and you shoud get
 /usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/tex/latex/fontspec/fontspec.sty
 
  If not, try
 
 $printenv $PATH
 
 Do you see the path to the texlive2011 installation occurring before
 the path to the Ubuntu installed executables?

Hi, The paths are all correct,  Starting lyx from the terminal and
reconfiguring did the trick as far as using TexLive2011 goes I just
can't start Lyx from the desktop icon if I want to use TexLive2011,
but I can live with that. It can be done but time is short . There are
other problems but I will post separate question about them. \

Starting Xetex in the terminal produces the message
Code
This is XeTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.3-0.9997.5 (TeX Live 2011)

I imagine this is ok. How do I configure lyx to find texlive2011
in /usr/local/ instead of using the system default?

Hi,

Tried with Ocular and Acrobat Reader and both had errors. Both were
file not found errors. 
Firefox can't find the file
at / /media/Nano/Documents/tcm_files/foo.xls 
It seems that lyx maybe 
passing an incorrect file path . When the link is clicked on in
the pdf, Acrobat Reader asks for permission before opening a linked file
and gives a file path:
file:%20/media/Nano/Documents/tcm_files/foo.xls
Here is the file path placed in the address bar of firefox by Acrobat
file:/// /media/Nano/Documents/tcm_files/foo.xls 

Opening the .xls file (if it could find it) in firefox by Acrobat is no
problem firefox just opens it in Libreoffice. I tested this by opening
the .xls file from the File dialogue in firefox. 

Also for completeness, www links in the lyx created pdf work perfectly
as they should opening a web page in firefox.

Alasdair

lyx 2.0.0 URL error unable to open external file on Ubuntu 11.10 . File path is correct!!

Hi, I am trying to create a link in a document to an external file (an 
using the hyperlink feature. However after creating the link in the
document and exporting to pdf the link appears as it should in the pdf,
but I get the following error message (file name altered) 

Error stating file '/media/Nano/file:/media/Nano/bar.xls': No such
file or directory


The file exists and the source of the document reflects the correct
file path. 

\href{file:/media/Nano/bar.xls}

The file is on an external drive,(the drive is always mounted) but
generally this shouldn't make any difference. Should it? I have created
test documents on the main hard drive with the same result. Have I
missed something here?

Cannot start lyx in NetBSD 3.0.1

Hi,

cannot find python and the LyXTextClassList::Read: unable to find textclass

find information on how to tell lyx where to find python. As far as I can tell 
I have the correct version of python on the system Python 2.4.3 and it is 
working. Here is the read-out from lyx -version
