I would like to thank you both, Virgil and Dr Eberhard Lisse
for your interesting, informative tutorial.

I can not gainsay that sometimes it takes a great deal of searching and
reading, thus time to find the best way to do something in Lyx/Latex.

Nor can I say sticking with all the eggs in one program basket is
necessarily a good thing. But someone once said, "Linux, the lifetime
learning experience" In my autumn years; believe this to be correct,
and find it keeps my mind active.

As an aside: Retired? I was never as busy, nor learned more, before I
was retired.

Thank you both again.

Stay well,

Than you for that. 

However, if I read this correctly Beamer is fine, even good.
However, your problem stated above, seems to be that you have to
do a lot of searching, reading and learning to get it to do
more than what is standard and easy?

Isn't that what you have to do if you want any system or program to
work the way you want? Isn't that what FOSS is all about?

Just a thought, no more.

Thank you Kornel.

The problem is solved, and it was my error. I changed the graphic I was
using, and changed its name.

The error message was too short, to point out that the graphic by the
previous name could not be found, because the name had been changed.

I had checked the path was correct. The graphic no longer existed.

Sorry for the noise.

Replied thus:

Thank you el, for that suggestion. 

The solution was as Chris suggested:
    \ThisCenterWallPaper{1}{path_to_wallpaper} in an ERT. I didn't
have the "This" in my ERT and therefore it produced the
wallpaper on every page of the document. Not a bad thing, but
in certain documents, just to have it on the first page was
desirable.

Thanks Chris,

I always use \thispagestyle{empty} in the first page.

I attempted to use \ThisCenterWallPaper{.43}{path_to_wallpaper}

However, I must have done something wrong, because it didn't work. I
tried so many things, in the end. I might have put that in the preamble

Wallpaper on first page only........

2021-05-05 Thread Charlie


Hello Everyone,

I was just wondering if anyone has a way of creating a
wallpaper image on the first page of a document only?

I use ERT: \CenterWallPaper{.53}{graphic desired}

However, it places the image on every page of the document. Usually use
it that way, but in some instances it would more desirable on only the
first page.

Have tried various methods found on the NET to have it only on the
first page. No joy unfortunately.

TIA,
Charlie

That is correct,

On my Debian Bullseye system I find:

en.dict
en_AU.dict
en_AU.exe
en_GB.dict
en_GB.exe

And others.

Not all have my added words in them, some of these files are empty.

I think the GB Great Britain and US, USA dicts are when I used a
different language and entered my own words and spellings.

> > de_DE.dic  de_DE.exc  de.dic  de.exc  en_GB.dic  en_GB.exc

Maybe if you open these files you may find the words and the "in use"
dictionary you seek?

Hope that helps,

Replied thus:

Thank you Paul,

Under:

"Cursor, mouse and editing functions" I find:

quote-insert  "
quote-insert inner  Alt+"
quote-insert outer auto plain Ctrl+"

Lyx certainly doesn't obey these.

Don't know how to modify the latter one to just have ["] as the first.

I may have to delete the key to make that work, but am unsure if it
hits the fan that I can get it back, or if it will obey that shortcut
as it doesn't the first one?

Thank you for pointing me to this. Have never had cause to look there.

Double quote marks...........

2020-07-21 Thread Charlie


Thoughts from my Keyboard:

Hello Everyone,

Using LyX Version 2.3.5.2 Debian Bullseye [testing] upgraded.

In a document attempted to use double quote marks " by Shift + " keys,
and only single quote marks ' were placed.

Read something on the net regarding Ctrl + " which didn't work.

So tried Ctrl + Shift " which did. I haven't come across this before
and wondered if it is my keyboard or is this what LyX does now? If the
latter, where can I read about such changes in the future? 

Thank you,

Responded thus:

Am probably speaking out of turn. Maybe the important word is
"compile". If so please ignore this, because it is just noise.

At the risk of bringing the devil to the door:

I have used LyX for so many years with so many Debian versions, Buster
and Bullseye at the moment, many before that. Have to admit that it
has always installed successfully from the Debian repository, each
time. Never had to do anything special with QT.

Always worked straight up, and with a little tweaking of paths, locked
into all LyX documents of which there are thousands. on a new
internal, or external hard drive.

Why do you need to "compile" it when using Debian? I am interested.

About the Save popup window.......

2019-05-10 Thread Charlie


Hello LyX Users,

Using LyX Version 2.3.2 - Debian Buster [testing] and FVWM

So this might be a feature that has yet to be included again, or not,
so just curious.

When using LyX previously when "Crtl + S"  or "Ctrl + Shift + S" to
save a file was invoked. It supplied, on the toolbar across the top of
the window that popped up, a small box that said "Template".

That doesn't appear any more. I am unable to find how I might place it
back by looking through "Preferences". Cannot identify what I must
enable to return it to that place.

So thought I may get a hint here. Maybe it has been removed forever. To
know that would also be helpful. Allowing me to cease looking for it
whenever a new thought in the attempt to find it occurs.

TIA,
Charlie

Re: Would LyX be a lot more popular if it were marketed as a note taking app?

I think LyX is marketed correctly as a document creator.

If you have time and are so inclined, you can create any kind or sort
of document with LyX. Save the template for future use and there it is,
almost magic next time. If needing anything at all, a few tweaks.

Many people say they just don't have time or can't be bothered to muck
about, or reinvent the wheel, trying to get some things to work with
LyX. Better, easier, faster to use another program that someone else
has had time to muck about with to get working.

I think that's true. But most document types, which are not very
extensive, that I require, can be or have been created with LyX by
someone else or myself, and tweaked as needed for each purpose. Very
often and graciously helped by those on this mailing list.

Be well,
Charlie

I just use Ctrl + Shift + N and it opens my custom templates directory,

Thank you Daniel.

Clicking on either list view or detail view once or twice just brings
it or from one to another. Right clicking on the directory doesn't
allow me to do anything.

Clicking on list vies does show **two** columns in the window. However,
the individual, single files are the first, at the top, instead of
under the directories. Which have always been on the top.

The detail view delivers a single column, the individual files are still
shown at the top instead of below the directories.

Ce la vie. I think I will just have to live with it.

Thank you for your suggestions.

Stay well,
Charlie

Thanks Daniel,

Can't find "sort by type".

Using LyX Version 2.2.2 Qt Version (run-time): 5.7.1 Qt Version

Using fvwm.

The file manager does not have this problem with the directories

There is another thing not working with LyX as well and has been so for
many months. That being the scroll bar is not seen till F7 is pressed
for spell checking, then the scroll bar appears and remains.

Will probably just have to live with these things.

Weird directory, different order of templates...

2018-05-21 Thread Charlie

Hello Everyone,

In my templates directory when opened with a file manager, my
directories have always been and still are on top, and below
them the various individual files in that directory. That has
always been in LyX as well.

Suddenly, the opposite is true in LyX, my directories are at the bottom
of the directory I open, and the individual files are at the top, so I
have to scroll down to get to the directories.

I imagine I have probably used a some obscure keyboard shortcut to have
this happen, but I have trolled through these and am unable to find the
one that does this. If that is actually the cause.

Would appreciate any advice.

TIA
Charlie

Sorry, forgot to time it but it was downloaded fairly quickly.

Due to our isolated area am on satellite internet which is pretend
broadband.

Downloaded from Australia from home.

Speeds were from a start of 1.4 MB, sped up and toward the end of the
download reached 2.7 MB, but mainly around the 1.6 - 1.8 MB speed.

Tried it again after a few minutes to time it. Only allowed a few
minutes to do that and the speed never reached higher than 746 KB so
killed it.

Hope that helps.

It is long indeed, but it works. Though I'm not canvassing for it, just
suits my needs, and thought it might solve your problem.

As an aside, using all the other options provided in this thread. The
link break doesn't honour my 346pt text width requirement in one of my
KOMA-Script Article document needs. It breaks, but well into the right
margin.

Interesting. I reckon.

Picked up somewhere, from the net or maybe here on this list, years ago,
and used constantly in the preamble of any document constructed with
LyX, is this:

\renewcommand{\UrlBreaks}{\do\/\do\a\do\b\do\c\do\d\do\e\do\f\do\g\do\h\do\i\do\j\do\k\do\l\do\m\do\n\do\o\do\p\do\q\do\r\do\s\do\t\do\u\do\v\do\w\do\x\do\y\do\z\do\A\do\B\do\C\do\D\do\E\do\F\do\G\do\H\do\I\do\J\do\K\do\L\do\M\do\N\do\O\do\P\do\Q\do\R\do\S\do\T\do\U\do\V\do\W\do\X\do\Y\do\Z}

Can that be shortened and still work. No idea, but it has done the job
for may years and in many different document classes

It may help you. It may even have someone who understands it find a
shorter way to use it, or another command that will do the same thing?

Happy new year, if you go in for such a thing.

Thanks Scott,

This could very well be the case. I wonder what corruption it might be.
Created in LyX which would pick up any wrongness, and then converted
with a converter that has never before failed to deliver the .pdf?

Anyway, have bookmarked this for future use if needed.

Just wondering about the scrollbar.......

2017-06-06 Thread Charlie

LyX Version 2.2.2

Library directory: /usr/share/lyx
User directory: ~/.lyx/

Qt Version (compile-time): 5.7.1

Debian Stretch: up to date.

Not a biggie

Just a thought about the scrollbar on the right and side of the
document window. It doesn't show till I hit F7 to spellcheck the
document, or not, because that brings up the scrollbar.

This has been the case for months, and because I knew that work around
used it, thinking that at some point it would be corrected?

Stretch is not that far from stable and still doesn't work on my
system. Possibly a new default?

Just wondered?

Yes, Sorry. should have been clearer. I go into webmail of my Internet

There is a option to "Open Anyway" This is selected and the .pdf is
opened and is as it should be. Looks good.

Okay, I will remove the graphic, sorry. Done.

I also sent the .pdf as created by the LyX converter on my Debian
stretch system [as above] because on your system it also might be seen
as a sample.bin rather than a sample.pdf?

Both Okular and Evince open the document as a .pdf and don't question
it.

Look; it's really just a thing that I thought was a bit weird and
imagined that someone else had this problem with a .pdf constructed by
a LyX converter?

Thanks for your time, but obviously it's nothing.

.pdf detected as suspicious because it registers as .bin........

2017-05-29 Thread Charlie

Hello Everyone,

LyX Version 2.2.2
(Monday, 10 October 2016)
Built from git commit hash 
Library directory: /usr/share/lyx
User directory: ~/.lyx/
Qt Version (run-time): 5.7.1
Qt Version (compile-time): 5.7.1

 Up to date Debian Stretch

I have a little problem with my ISP.

Created a LyX file and then used the two eyes button to convert it to
a .pdf.

My ISP says:

WARNING! This attachment is suspicious because its type doesn't
match the type declared in the message. If you do not trust the
sender, you shouldn't open it in the browser because it may
contain malicious contents.

Expected: application/pdf(.pdf); found: application/octet-stream(.bin)

It asks to open anyway, and it opens as a .pdf file just the way it
was created?

A small sample attached.

Any ideas?

TIA

Not certain if I know this is what's required: LyX Version 2.2.2
Debian Linux testing.

I can just highlight text in a LyX document. Just pressing, at the same
time, left and right mouse buttons, can paste into xterm.

Something that does happen on a couple of blog sites, is, if directly
copying from text from LyX, causes it all to be seen as a hyperlink? No
biggie though. Just copy it into a text editor and paste from there.

Don't know if that helps.

Be well,
Charlie

Unable to open file........

2017-04-07 Thread Charlie


Hello All,

I have obviously made an error creating this file in 2007 and now I'm
unable to open it.

This message in Lyx:

/home/charlie/lyx/rec-reserve/letters/shire/07-08-shire-funding.lyx is
not a readable LyX document

In a text editor the message is:

The file
/home/charlie/shire/07-08-shire-funding.lyx||07-08-shire-funding.lyx
was opened with UTF-8 encoding but contained invalid characters. It is
set to read-only mode, as saving might destroy its content. Either
reopen the file with the correct encoding chosen or enable the
read-write mode again in the tools menu to be able to edit it. [end
quote]

Then I get this:

48> <234575E8A4EDC1B14EE078D78DCA5E48>] >>

Dozens of these numbers

startxref

291216 0 n

%%EOF

More numbers.

I attempted several encodings with the text editor but no joy. The
numbers changed a little bit but not a great deal.

Just a question here. One of the reasons use LyX is because I thought
any LyX file could be opened in a text editor and the contents rescued?
Now I wonder? I assume that I will lose some file and their content
anyway?

It doesn't matter if no one can help me with the problem. However, I
would like to know if I will lose old LyX files, be unable to open them
as time goes on and LyX evolves?

TIA

Stay well,
Charlie

No problem. Please, no apology needed, put it all together to view the
blog.

There has just been a bit of discussion on the Debian User

breaks the URL.

Obviously not, so thanks for clearing that up.

Re: Landscape document...

  From my keyboard:

   Hello el,

  No. That's how they are. I just placed the sizes into the Height
  and Width locations as they are presented.

See attached. This is obviously wrong.

Are you suggesting that height actually means width and vise versa?

Height means the width of the page?

You are quite correct.

That works in fact. It would seem the height of the page is the width
of the page if you indicate "landscape".

How confusing is that, for me at any rate. But then I'm not clever, so
it's counter intuitive, for me at least.


So the height remains the height if you turn the page with the
landscape incantation.

Okay, thank you for your help. It's much appreciated. I will try, when
I have time, to leave it as portrait and just put in the dimensions. Not
use landscape at all.

Again, thank you,

Wow!

I just checked the document and it was 17.78 cm height and 22.86 cm
wide. Not the other way round.

But you reckon it was 22.86 cm hight and 17.78 wide which would be
portrait? That's weird.

Maybe others might quickly look at that document and inform me that
they see what you see as well. That would mean my system LyX is really
wrong and it may have to be purged and reinstalled?

I did specify landscape, but I suppose you saw that when you looked in
the Document->settings->Page format->orientation

Well there you go. I wouldn't use adobe acrobat reader fortunately. But
I might test it with that on a friends machine.

Thanks for your input.

Stay well,

Quickly did this as I had time, but previously only did in full page

Quickly tried it in Memoir and Koma- article. Result the same.

With a full page picture, landscape the picture goes out past the right

Sorry there is no minimum full page graphics in fact.

PDF (graphics) -> EPS = pdftops
PDF (pdflatex) -> PDF (cropped)  = pdfcrop
PDF (pdflatex) -> PDF (lower resolution) = python
PDF (postscript) -> postscript = pdftops

And more of the same.

No matter. I can work round it, I just thought there might be a better

It works the way I described and might help others if they are having

Landscape document..........

2016-07-13 Thread Charlie

From my keyboard:
   
 
Using Debian testing [stretch]

LyX Version 2.2.0

Qt Version (run-time): 4.8.7

Qt Version (compile-time): 4.8.7

Trying to write a document in landscape mode, but when I convert it to
a .pdf file with Okular.

It presents with portrait and runs off the right of the page. Even if I
specify the custom height and width of the pages.

To rule out Okular I have created the file as landscape in LibreOffice
and it showed up as predicted with Okular. Tried both with evince. Lyx
file showed in portrait mode .pdf in both. The LibreOffice showed as
landscape as it should.

To make it work in Lyx had to place: \usepackage{pdflscape} in the
preamble and [ERT in document] \begin{landscape} and \end{landscape} at
the end.

Can someone tell me the right way to do this?

Thank you.

Very old, because I read it on the internet years ago as the way to do

So still use it in the Latex preamble of on some document templates.
Works for me. There may be a better way of course? I just don't know it.

  From my keyboard:

   Hello Stephan,

  Thank you for your help. Had I known I should look into my
  ~/.config directory for enchant, I would have been right.

Joe had the answer and shared it. So I found the word and removed it.

My problem was not a big issue, however, just annoying to think I
couldn't grub it out when I checked my ~/.aspell.en.pws file even
before I posted my question.

Thanks both of you.

   Hello Joe,

That does help. It's the answer. Thank you very much for taking the
time to supply it. Very much appreciated. Have removed the word. Wow.

No fictitious words in that email. :-)

   Hello Stephan,

  Jessie (testing)?

Which of those commands in the drop down menu allow me to delete a word
word that I used several reboots ago in my added word list. It's sort
of my last hope. [see below] But I can live without getting that word
removed.

I did that before by the way. Checked the drop down menu, but didn't see
which entry to try as explained in my email.

There is no .dict in the whole of my /home directory.

My spellchecker is Enchant.

So, just to be certain as I could be. Ran a search through the entire
hard drive, all directories, and came up with plenty of .dict - 94 in
fact, but none that showed me where I might find the file I need. 

I'll just have to leave it as it is unless that drop down menu holds
the key.

Thanks anyway,

I used the ordinary F7 spellcheck option to spellcheck and then add the
word.

I see that if I highlight the word I want to remove, I get a different
dialogue. But accept or reject change isn't what I want. I would like
"keep added word in dictionary" or "remove added word in dictionary" or
something to that effect?

I want to remove a word I placed into the dictionary a couple of
hours ago.

I went to /usr/share/hunspell/ to the dictionaries there, but that
appears to be the list of words used, not the added words. I looked for
the word I misspelled and added by accident, but it wasn't there.

I don't know where my "added to dictionary" words go? That would be a
help to know. I could ten go in and edit the file.

So when I read about the way to remove a word from the dictionary, I
thought I would give it a larrup.

So far no luck.

Thanks for your reply. I won't send a simple file with one word.

Be well,

Charlie

Thanks Paul.

I didn't think of that because when I typed into an email or text
editor, which I tried, they all typed as normal, no delay. So I
imagined it wasn't a system problem in that it affected typing,
delay time to keyboard the CPU working too hard, as such.

I also have a monitor on the desktop right from boot up, that shows me
that and more

But will try that next time it occurs, just to see anyway. However, now
that it has cleared itself, I imagine that for this Debian testing it's
done.

In this instance it cleared after a reboot today.

However, every Debian testing this slowing of keystrokes showing on the
monitor happens in LyX. A couple of testing versions ago, I recall that
it cleared and then did the same again. So twice for that testing
version? Not correctable by reboots.

I don't think it's LyX because there wasn't an actual LyX upgrade. On
another laptop, using this version of Debian testing and LyX, I expanded
the TeX files I required a couple of days ago, Monday, and it didn't
show the slowing behaviour either? It's not a big deal.

Just out of interest, nothing more.
   
 I have come into the Debian testing stage and LyX: 

  LyX Version 2.2.0
(Monday, 23 May 2016)
Built from git commit hash

User directory: ~/.lyx/

Where the typing showing up on the monitor is slower that the strikes

My typing is well ahead of the reveal of character on the screen.
[laughing] Also deleting a line with the Backspace key is a bit of a
challenge as holding it down carries the cursor back way beyond where
it is to stop. :-)

Having used Debian testing for some years and LyX only a short time
less. Have seen this phenomenon on every occasion of testing when it
gets to a certain point.

It only happens to LyX and have not been able to isolate the Debian

one day it will disappear. Not a big

Not certain this is the answer because I haven't tried it. But in ERT:

\begin{fullwidth}

And between these two ERT commands place your full page float

\end{fullwidth}

Maybe that will work?

Tufte book/handout question.......

2015-09-03 Thread Charlie

From my keyboard:
   
I received a copy of a book of poetry recently and the page format
appeared to be a Tufte book or handout layout in landscape?

If it wasn't a Tufte layout then it was another layout in which
sidenotes were possible?

I'm not familiar with latex so it may have been a layout crafted
through that discipline.

I just thought I would put it out there to see if anyone knew how to
create a Tufte layout in landscape. Reading the Tufte information it
seems that landscape is not supported.

Not clever enough to find the answer myself.

Answering my own question;

Found out how to use landscape in certain sections:

using ERT in Latex Preamble \usepackage{lscape}

Then in the document \begin{landscape} where required and
\end{landscape} where finished.

I have had a great deal of help from Jean-Marie Pacquet with my

Where you see “Sender name” in the Koma letter template place your
graphic, or your other entry and then move your graphic accordingly,
maybe using Ctrl+space as often as you require.

In the footer you may have to do much the same.

I see you have had some good advice from Jean-Marie on your request
last time.

Prior to using the Koma-Script letter template, I rolled my own letter
template with a plain Koma-Script article page and just placed all the
elements where I wanted much like suggested above for placing the
graphics.

I have also created a graphic with the GIMP with all the writing, with
the font I wanted and graphic placed accordingly and just inserted that
into the “Sender name” area.

Not much help, but maybe a start to what you need.

 Or, is something missing here?
 
 Please note I am only curious, as when I've need a page break in a
 box, just create another box.
 
 Be well,

Sorry for the noise.

Played round and found that had to \usepackage{framed} and then went
single frame. Not realising that double frame is a box within a box.

So it works like that.

Be well,

 You do not have to load framed manually. Just insert a Box with a
 simple frame. Then, in the Box settings dialog, select no inner box
 (no Parbox or Minipage). Then you can check allow page breaks.
 This loads framed internally.

  From my keyboard:

   Thank you Jürgen,

  It works a treat just as you say. I didn't think to look at the
  Inner box setting to see if there was something that might be
  done there.

I started the box off as a double frame box.

Thank you again,

I have the header covered and the rest of the text doesn't do anything,
though left the text in the \lfoot and added text into the \cfoot and
the \rfoot.

There was no output at all.

 I think that would work in an article template but not in the letter
 one. I actually tried several variations of this and came up blank or
 received error messages from some attempts.

Thank you.

 If you have a 2.9x version of KomaScript (like me) the following 
 modified example will do what you want. If your version is  3.x you 
 should replace the first line \firstfoot{% with 
 \setkomavar{firstfoot}{%.
 All this has to be inserted in your .lco parameter file.

Thank you Jean-Marie,

The first example you pointed me to on page 178 works, and I was working
on tweaking it, and then I saw you had sent this email, which works
perfectly.

I feel like such an idiot. My only excuse is that I had looked on the
net and through other documentation that I didn't fine that reference
in the scrguien.pdf.

It's not unusual for me to go the hard way first.

I did look through the scrguien.pdf that you have directed me to in the
past and I've got in my LyX information file, but maybe I was already
overloaded with footnote information? I really have no excuse.

Anyway, as ever, and as previously thank you for your help and taking
the time to create the result. It's much appreciated and works
a treat.

Thank you once again.

Stay well,
Charlie
