Re: Anyone using LuaTeX with LyX?

2013-05-28 Thread EK

  
  
I have only used lua indirectly, when the standard pdflatex failed
to compile a Lyx file, and I discovered by trial-and-error that
using pdf through lua did work. 
I do not know why that was, but I suspect some dependence issue.

Re: Converting lyx to odt

2013-05-02 Thread EK

  
  
I was not going into WORD but into LibreOffice Writer.
I realize the difficulties in such conversions, but I do have
colleague who will not use anything but MS-WORD, and I do
collaborate with them on some manuscripts. 
It is much less of a problem for a short paper.

You can run 'tlmgr --gui' to give you a GUI for updating LaTeX
packages with TeX Live.
(note that you have to have the package perl-tk installed)
That will also download the package itself so you don't have to do it manually.

To update everything from the command line, do:
tlmgr update --self --all

You might have to use 'sudo'.

Hi Ehud,

Good point. Because bcsikos mentioned tlmgr I assumed he had it
installed. In Linux the above works also, but you have to install TeX
Live manually instead of using the Ubuntu packages. I recently
transitioned from using the Ubuntu PPA to installing TeX Live manually
so if you would like some advice on this, let me know and I can write
up something. Maybe we could write a Wiki article for this. It's a
little tricky because if you don't use some workarounds, whenever you
try to install an Ubuntu package that depends on LaTeX, Ubuntu will
try to install TeX Live again because it doesn't know that you already
installed it.

Best,

Scott

So for some mysterious reason, Latex fails to find the urwpalladio, but

I think it is just Lua(La)TeX that fails. And this may be a known problem
or something to do with your setup or ... -- I don't think LyX should be
blamed (at least if it works with XeTeX) because differentiating between
system fonts that work with XeTeX and not LuaTeX is overkill. Rather this
should be fixed on the LuaTeX side.


  
BTW-- I ran texhash just to make sure the database was updated.

  
  
I don't think this helps with LuaTeX font problems. AFAIK, there is a 
separate LuaTeX font database but I did not dive into LuaTeX yet.

Wolfgang,
If you are in Windows, you can use the tlmgr (the Texlive package
manager) to install support for Greek.
If you are in Linux (as I am), you can use the Linux package manager
(since I use (L)ubuntu, for me this is synaptic)--
search on texlive in synaptic and you'll see something like:
texlive-lang-greek. Install it and everything will be nice.

AFAIK, the Palatino font option in the LyX font list (without
"use non-TeX fonts") corresponds to 

\usepackage{mathptmx}

from the PSNFSS LaTeX standard package. This should work in all
non-corrupt LaTeX installations. It is an extended version of URW Palla*
with real small-caps and some basic math support.


  
When I try to use the URW Palladino that appears in the list, I get the 
error message: Font-not-found, even though I have TeX gyre and other 
packages installed that say they use URW Palladino.

  
  
TeX gyre Paladio is based on URW Pal* but incorporates this in its own font
file(s). I.e. installing this does not make URWs palladingsbums available
under this name.

OTOH, the font selection dialogue should not let you select a font that is
not installed on your system. Could you please try with a simple document
containing just ASCII? Maybe some non-ASCII letters are not supported
without LyX knowing.

There used to be support files for Linotype Palatino (which is a
commercial font which you have to purchase from Linotype) by Walter
Schmidt [1]. However, Walter Schmidt has declared the package obsolete,
since recent TeX distributions include both URW Palladio (a real
Palatino clone) and true small caps and old style figures for that
(so-called fpl font). This is what you get when you select "Palatino"
from the LyX font combo, provided your laTeX distribution is fairly
new.

An alternative is TeX Gyre Pagella, also a Palatino clone, which you can
call by
\usepackage{tgpagella}

less space than Georgia, which uses less space than Helvetica or Arial.

  
  
AFAIK, the Palatino font option in the LyX font list (without
"use non-TeX fonts") corresponds to 

\usepackage{mathptmx}

from the PSNFSS LaTeX standard package. This should work in all
non-corrupt LaTeX installations. It is an extended version of URW Palla*
with real small-caps and some basic math support.


  
When I try to use the URW Palladino that appears in the list, I get the 
error message: Font-not-found, even though I have TeX gyre and other 
packages installed that say they use URW Palladino.

  
  
TeX gyre Paladio is based on URW Pal* but incorporates this in its own font
file(s). I.e. installing this does not make URWs palladingsbums available
under this name.

OTOH, the font selection dialogue should not let you select a font that is
not installed on your system. Could you please try with a simple document
containing just ASCII? Maybe some non-ASCII letters are not supported
without LyX knowing.

There used to be support files for Linotype Palatino (which is a
commercial font which you have to purchase from Linotype) by Walter
Schmidt [1]. However, Walter Schmidt has declared the package obsolete,
since recent TeX distributions include both URW Palladio (a real
Palatino clone) and true small caps and old style figures for that
(so-called fpl font). This is what you get when you select "Palatino"
from the LyX font combo, provided your laTeX distribution is fairly
new.

An alternative is TeX Gyre Pagella, also a Palatino clone, which you can
call by
\usepackage{tgpagella}

in the preamble.

  
  
Hallo,

using \usepackage{tgpagella} I get the following error message:
Font LGR/cmr/m/n/10.95=grmn1095 at 10.95pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file 
no
Font LGR/qpl/m/n/10.95=grmn1095 at 10.95pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file 
no

and the following description of it:
 Dbp, Ror\textgreek{g}
, RevErb\textgreek{a}, RevErb\textgreek{b}, 
Dec1...
I wasn't able to read the size data for this font,
so I will ignore the font specification.
[Wizards can fix TFM files using TFtoPL/PLtoTF.]
You might try inserting a different font spec;
e.g., type `I\fontsame font id=substitute font name'.

which refers to
\textgreek{a} etc
(an upright alpha)

I had changed in document settingsfonts all to default because of
using 
\usepackage{tgpagella}

is tgpagella not able to handle upright greek?

and what different font spec would be recommendable to handle it?

Re: Palatino linotype in Lyx

2013-03-06 Thread EK

  
  
"OTOH, the font selection dialogue should not let you select a font

not installed on your system."--
I agree wholeheartedly.  In fact, LyX 2.0.5.1 under Windows XT does
tell me (right in the list) that the font was not installed, 
but the same version of Lyx under Lubuntu 12.10 64 bits omits this
useful note.  Both systems run TexLive 2012.
Since under (L)ubuntu the tlmgr (the package manager for TexLive) is
not normally available, and since URWPalladio does not appear in the
ubuntu repositories, I could not use it.

Re: Palatino linotype in Lyx

2013-03-05 Thread EK

  
  
The information I was able to find on the subject was murky, and
left it unclear (at least for me) whether the two fonts are the
same. 
However, I did compile my document with Palatino, and it was nearly
as economical (in terms of space) as Times New Roman. 
I read somewhere that Palatino Linotype took up MORE space than
Times New Roman, which is why I suspect that P. Linotype is not

the same as Palatino, even though the letter shapes might be
similar. 
NIH probably chose P. Linotype precisely because it allows you to
put fewer words on the page than, say, Times New Roman, 
to protect the sanity of the poor reviewers.

Output color while change tracking

2013-02-20 Thread EK

  
  
When I choose to show
  changes in output, the changed text appears blue in the pdf
output, 
and the changebar in the margin appears gray. 
I would like to be able to control the color of both the changed
text and the changebar.
How do I do that? Do I change the number (#3) in the \cbstart\color
command?
Right now I have in the preamble:


\usepackage{textcomp}

\usepackage{color}
  \date{}
  \setcounter{page}{1}
  
  \renewcommand{\thesection}{\Alph{section}}

\renewcommand{\contentsname}{}

OK-- further research uncovered the culprit for the first issue (the
need to accept any change made before I could compile). 
In my preamble I had the following:



\usepackage{enumitem}


\setlist{leftmargin=0mm,
itemindent=3mm, itemsep=0.75mm,nolistsep}


\usepackage[pdftex,outerbars]{changebar}

Commenting these lines out solved the problem. I have not yet
discovered the reason for the failure to correctly reference a wrap
figure in a box.

Hi Ehud,

Thank you for your example file. However, it is not a working example
file for the following reasons:
1. It does not compile.
2. You did not include your bibtex file. If it's not necessary to
reproduce the problem, then consider not making it a dependency by
including references in your MWE .lyx file.
3. Even if you did include your bibtex file, the path to it is
specific to your computer.
4. You did not include the file p-trode-w-dimensions. Further, because
this file has no name, I have no idea what time of graphic it is. And
thus I have no idea what converter is being called.
5. The path to the picture is not relative.

An MWE (or a SWE) should be compilable out of the box.

You probably didn't send the picture because you didn't want to
increase the size of everyone's inboxes and I appreciate that. But
it's very nice to have an MWE. I wish we had a way where you could
upload your files somewhere and then link to them because not everyone
has access to such a service themselves. Also, you could have used a
1kb picture, or no picture at all, to show the problem.

Regarding your potential bug number 1, I think I see what you are
talking about. Here is the PDF that is produced for me on the
development version of LyX:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/e5rpv153nue0lg0/MWE.pdf
There is no number at all in the reference to the figure. It should be
figure 1 and yet nothing shows up.

Regarding point 2, I didn't try to reproduce this as I have no idea
what converter is being called and I'm not sure if by "any change to
the figure" you mean a change to the file itself, a change to the
properties of the figure, a change to the caption, or maybe all of the
above. Please specify just one action in the steps you give to
reproduce the behavior you found. You can then note that any of
several actions could also be used for that step.

I hope I'm not coming across as upset. I'm not at all. I think that it
takes time to learn how to write a good MWE. I also think that we are
missing documentation on how to make an MWE specifically in the
context of LyX. A search for "MWE" at wiki.lyx.org gives nothing. This
is something I would like to work on documenting. Let me know if you
have any suggestions for me.

My guess is that these are LyX bugs. If you are able and willing to
make MWE(s) (either one that shows both problems, or two separate
ones), it would be great if you could open separate bug reports on
www.lyx.org/trac. Please attach any relevant files to each bug report.

Best,

Scott

Re: Problems with Windows installation [solved]

You might try to install TexLive independently, and then install Lyx
(using the non-bundle installer), directing it to the TexLive TeX
engine.
This is how I do it on my XP machine.

netbook.

To investigate how LyX works on Windows so I could give him advice I
borrowed the only computer in the house with Windows, my wife's
netbook, which dual boots Windows 7 and Linux Mint.

I downloaded the bundle, LyX-2.0.5.1-Bundle-4.exe, and installed it in
Windows 7. I found I had exactly the same problems my friend was
reporting.

To investigate what was happening, I tried to export LaTeX(pdflatex),
using the splash file (examples/splash.lyx) as a test case. It exported
what looked like a perfectly good LaTeX file. I looked around for a way
of testing this file, and found TeXworks, which comes with MikTeX. It
generated a perfect PDF file with no errors.

So I went back to LyX, opened the Messages box to watch where the error
occurred, and tried to export a PDF(pdflatex) file. It worked without
any errors.

So I tried another file (the User's Guide, doc/UserGuide.lyx). This
also worked without any errors, but I observed that before generating
the PDF MikTeX downloaded some additional packages.

So I suggested to my friend that he try exporting a LaTeX file,
typesetting it using TeXworks, then trying again with LyX. Sure enough,
after using TeXworks to generate one PDF file, LyX can create PDF files
normally.

I have to conclude that the MikTeX installer does not finalize the
installation, but leaves something undone. This missing configuration
is then completed the first time TeXworks is used. Perhaps someone more
familiar with MikTeX could explain this.

label, the figure number appears as Figure D, not Figure 3 as it
should.
  I need to track changes and show the results in the pdf
output.  When I make ANY change to the figure and compile, I get
a (to me nonsensical) error message, and the compilation stops. 
If I ACCEPT the changes I made to the figure, the error message
disappears.  Is this a feature?

Thanks,
Ehud Kaplan

Re: No pdflatex view in 2.0.5.1 under XP with Texlive

Here is what I tried, following Uwe's response:

  I removed all Lyx installations from the XP machine
  I downloaded the Windows bundle installer
  I installed Lyx and JabRef with that installer
  I tested it-- got the very same error (!pdfTeX error:
pdflatex.exe (file
c:/texlive/2012/texmf-var/fonts/map/pdftex/up) 
when I tried to view a pdf output by clicking on the ViewPdf
icon (pdflatex)
  Tried other formats-- luapdf failed, but others (xetex, pdf
via dvi or PS) all worked.

So I am exactly where I was initially. I rarely use the XP
  machine these days, but when I need it, I usually need Lyx to
  function on it, which it did until this latest version.
Any idea what is going on?

Re: Beamer multitude problems with lyx

2010-06-02 Thread EK
My experience with Beamer is that Lyx is helpful for things like tables 
or some other complex entities.  For simple things Beamer/Latex is just 
as easy.
A BIG problem with the current Beamer is its inability to easily (by 
mere mortals) configure templates, or even determine the location of an 
institutional logo.  This is trivial to do with PowerPoint, and is a 
real pain with Beamer.

Re: launching LyX 1.6.5

It still did /*not */work.  The response from running:
lyx -dbg 3 was: Lyx is not recognized as an internal or external 
command.. etc.


By the way, I agree that changing the paper size to letter rather than 
A4 and allowing needed packages to be installed without asking is not 
the cause for this failure, since I did it that way on the one machine 
where the alinstaller did work for 1.6.5 (A Windows 2000 system).  The 
failures were on two XP sp3 machines.

Since I was unable to run Lyx (after altinstaller installation), I

I still cannot get Lyx to run, no matter how long I wait.
The one thing I did differently from the default installation options is
that I chose letter size paper, rather than A4, and changed the 
needed package downloading to YES (rather than Ask me first).


Why this? The installer clearly state not to change anything. The 
installer automatically configures MiKTeX and the change to letter 
size can be done anytime later.


However, this cannot be the bug (I think). Try this:

- delete the folder named C:\Documents and 
Settings\username\Application Data\lyx16

- do this for all users on your system
- finally restart LyX (this should recreate the just deleted folder)

When it still doesn't work, what do you get when you open a console 
and start there LyX with the command


lyx -dbg 3

I was worried about that, and in despair logged  on as administrator and 
tried again, but got the same behavior--
clicking on the Lyx icon I see a brief DOS (cmd) window which 
disappears, then another DOS window appears briefly, disappears, and 
then silence-- Lyx never appears.

Does the alt-installer require administrative permission for something
during installation what is not available to standard user under SP3?

I shall try it when I get back home.  However, I suspected that Lyx is 
doing something like that, and therefore I did wait for over an hour 
with a broad-band internet connection, but nothing happened-- at least 
nothing that I could see.

No, of course. I am using it on a Windows XP laptop from the 1.6.5 
after uninstalling the 1.6.4.


Try the following, in a command prompt/console (if you do not have a 
shorcut for it somewhere in the start menu, type cmd in the run box)


1- cd to the lyx bin folder, something like
C:\Program Files\LyX 1.6.5

2- type lyx.bat and press return. See what happens.

3- type lyx.exe and press return. See what happens.

At that point, you may see error messages telling what's going wrong.

Are you using an antivirus? if yes, try to see if it reported 
something recently. I had cases of Kaspersky putting some important 
soft in quarantine as false positives (Matlab, and python in LyX 
1.6.0/1.6.1 alt installer IIRC).


You may also want to rename your preference directory,
C:\Documents and Settings\userbname\Application Data\lyx16
to something else (e.g. lyx16bak) and try again to run lyx.

Importing a latex file with bibliography into Lyx

2009-12-06 Thread EK
When I import a Latex file that contains an explicit bibliography 
(\begin{thebibliography}.. \end{thebibliography}etc.  from a .bbl file) 
I get an error message:
Unrecognized parameter [Name  
where Name is the first \bibitem in the bibliography.


What is puzzling is that I used to do this without any trouble, but now 
it fails with any file I try.

Any ideas?
