Japanese kunten on Lyx?

2010-08-28 Thread Clemente Beghi
Hello,

I have been using Lyx for some time and I really like it.
Mainly I have been using it on Debian/Ubuntu and Windows OSs, on top
of TexLive, in particular XeTex.
I am not so familiar with the Latex code,  so I would insert commands
by hand only for the fine tuning. I use XeTex because it easily allows
me to use whatever font I need without complications, more
specifically the Hiragino.otf (ヒラギノ.otf) used for printing quality
Japanese characters and Times Extended Roman.ttf that I use for its
many diacritical marks .

Recently I would like to put in my files longer sections of ancient
Japanese documents, that have some peculiarities:
vertical text (縦書き), reading marks (訓点, appearing as small characters
either on the left or the right) and interlinear commentaries (割注
namely two thin vertical lines in the space of about one).
How can remain faithful to the original documents and put in my Lyx
file these things so that they properly appear also in the final pdf
document?
Thank you for your help.
All the best,

Clemente

xeCJK not allowing to use other font with \fontspec{fontname}

2009-09-13 Thread Clemente Beghi
I am using Lyx with XeTex but somehow some fonts are not displayed
correctly. I am using mainly a mixture of Roman characters and East Asian
ideograms but what is not showing on the result pdf are some random Indic
characters.
I think I can refer the problem to the fact that I use the XeCJK package to
automatically distinguish between Roman and East Asian fonts and when it
finds some utf code referring to the Indic font it considers it as being
East Asian. Can I stop XeCJK (loaded in the preamble) only where the Indic
characters are present?
I attached in latex  community forum the examples with and without xeCJK: in
the first case I get the East Asian character but not the Indic ones, in the
second the opposite (.lyx are renamed to .tex to avoid the forum filters,
but they are actually almost identical)
Cheers

Ps. here is a link to my post on the latex community forum, with a link to
the examples:

Problem (File does not exist) with Lyx 1.6.2 and XeTex (under TexLive 2009)

2009-08-24 Thread Clemente Beghi
Hello,

I am a newbie running a computer with Ubuntu 8.1 (intrepid) where I tried
installing Lyx and have it work with XeTex.
Eventually I opted for the latest Lyx package on getdeb (version 1.6.2) and
the repository files for TexLive/Xetex. I later realised that the
latex/xetex were way too old so I got the TexLive 2009 installer (somehow I
had some problems installing the TexLive 2008 DVD).
Now, after setting Lyx up for XeTex, I get the following message when I try
to export or view with XeTex:
File does not exist: /tmp/lyx_tmpdir.TJ6121/lyx_tmpbuf0/Test.pdf
I didn't get it before with the 2007 repository version (although I had
problems with other things that eventually pushed me to try to update
everything).
If I run a tex file with xetex with the command line I get:
This is XeTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.2-0.9995.0 (TeX Live 2009)
restricted \write18 enabled.
---! /home/arjuna/.texlive2009/texmf-var/web2c/xetex/xelatex.fmt doesn't
match xetex.pool
(Fatal format file error; I'm stymied)

I hope someone can help.
All the best

Lyx, Japanese and the Classic Thesis template

2009-06-26 Thread Clemente Beghi
Hello,

I am a complete beginner, but I would like to transfer my dissertation from
Word to LyX (either manually or automatically).
I have LyX 1.5.6 (the version that comes in the repositories) installed in
my computer that runs Ubuntu 8.4.
I have been trying to use lyx for the parts of my text in Japanese, but
every time I export to DVI it says the fonts are missing, which is strange
since I have installed all the Japanese related packages. Another thing is
that I would like to use Times Ext Roman, a unicode ttf font with all the
diacritics I need, but I am not sure I can use it with Lyx. Another thing
still  is that I would  like to use the Classic Thesis template, but
substitute the main font with Times Ext and have Hiragino otf for the
Japanese.
I am reading various posts, but the entire process is a bit confusing.
Hope someone can help.
All the best,

Clemente
