 You could use emelFM2 as the file manager from which you open your LyX
 documents. It has an integrated output pane that is, for practical
 reasons, a terminal. And you can see all LyX mindwork in it. When not
 needed, you could simply hide the output pane. I would believe Ubuntu
 has a (somewhat dated) emelFM2 binary.
 Liviu


Thanks, Liviu.

I installed emelFM2, and it looks pretty cool.  I am going to need to
play around with it more to learn what all it can do.  But I see the
output pane you mentioned, and it seems to be another method to get
what I was looking for.

Thanks again,
Jay

 I believe you can make a script that opens LyX with a terminal - but
 a minimized terminal. One that disappear as soon as LyX is closed.

 If you need the information, just restore the minimized terminal.

 Helge Hafting



Thanks, Helge.

I did some searching and it seems like I can replace the command

lyx %F

in the launcher with

gnome-terminal -e lyx %F

and it will open a terminal (not minimized, though).  This is
basically what I was looking for.  There is an extra window, but at
least I don't need to start a whole new LyX process if/when I run into
trouble.

Cheers,
Jay

how to see what LyX is thinking?

2009-08-23 Thread G. Jay Kerns
Dear LyX-Users,

I am on Ubuntu Linux.  If I run lyx from a terminal, then along with
the LyX window I get a terminal where I can see what LyX is thinking
when it generates PDFs, etc.  This is a very useful debugging tool,
but I only need it a relatively small fraction of the time I am using
LyX.

On the other hand, I can never predict when I am going to need it.
And if I run LyX from the Desktop icon, say, then I don't get the
terminal showing LyX's thought processes.  If I get to someplace where
I need the terminal (especially when I am doing something with
Sweave), the only solution I have found is to close LyX and open it up
again with a terminal.

Is there some Linux trick, where I can open LyX, say, from the Desktop
without a terminal, but on-the-fly open up a terminal (or is there
even some other mechanism) to see what LyX is thinking?

Thanks for any help you may have,
Jay

following link:

in which it is suggested that the hyperref package can cause problems
with citations.  I disabled hyperref support and Shazam!!!  It worked
perfectly.

I am writing this message in the hopes that it may possibly save

the character in program listings

2009-03-09 Thread G. Jay Kerns
Dear LyX-users,

I am writing a document in which I am using a lot of program listings.
(Insert - Program Listing).  It seems that LyX will not recognize the
double quote character  when I type it inside the listing.  I can
type in a single quote ' which works fine.  When I view source and I
type numerous , nothing happens.

I have read the Listings package documentation and think that perhaps
I will at some point want a morestring= global listing setting, but I
can't find a way for LyX to recognize that I am typing  in the first
place.  (Nothing fancy, just a simple newfile1.lyx will suffice to see
what I am talking about).

I am using LyX 1.6.1 on Ubuntu 8.10.

Could anyone please give a pointer to what I am missing here?

Sincerely,
Jay

program listings and bold typewriter font

2009-02-06 Thread G. Jay Kerns
Dear LyX-users,

I am using LyX 1.6.1 on Ubuntu Intrepid 64.

I have inserted a program listing into an AMSbook document class and
have typed some code in the R language.  Everything works fine if I
want the code to be typeset with sans serif font;  reserved words are
bolded.

However, if I try to use Typewriter in the settings dialog, it is
correctly shown as typewriter, but the bold is no longer there.

Here's what it says in the documentation, Embedded Objects:

Note: If you don't get bold keywords when using typewriter fonts, your
typewriter font probably doesn't provide a bold shape. In this case
select a different one in the menu Document-Settings-Fonts. (The
fonts LuxiMono, BeraMono and Courier provide bold shapes.)

I changed my fonts in Documents/Settings:

1)  I tried both Courier and Beramono, but there was no difference in
the output.  What is happening?  Is this OS dependent?

2) Latin Modern Typewriter and LuxiMono are shown to be 'not
installed'.  Does anyone know where these are in Synaptic or
elsewhere?


Can anyone help me?

Regards,
Jay

In trying to create a minimal example, I have found that a standard
document with the book (AMS) document class works perfectly well with
the Courier font, as documented and expected.

The additional info (which I didn't report earlier) about my problem
was that I am using Sweave with LyX.  In fact, I modified Gregor
Gorjanc's literate-book.layout to Input amsbook.layout instead of
book.layout.

The end result is that if I take my file of document class book
(Sweave noweb), delete all of the noweb scrap environments, and change
the document class to book (AMS), then everything works perfectly.

It would seem that there is something happening with the LyX-Sweave
machinery which is causing the fonts in the Program Listing
environment to not appear bold, even for a reserved word in the R
language.  I do not know what is happening, but I will try to figure
it out.

I have attached the minimal example in case anybody else would like to
give it a try. (but please note that you would have to have configured
LyX to run with Sweave, and modified literate-book.layout as described
above).

Jay

I figured out a solution.  For the record, the following line in the
Preamble fixes the problem:

\lstset{ keywordstyle = \bf }

Note that many of the other variants that one might expect to work...
don't.  :-)

program listings and bold typewriter font

2009-02-06 Thread G. Jay Kerns
Dear LyX-users,

I am using LyX 1.6.1 on Ubuntu Intrepid 64.

I have inserted a program listing into an AMSbook document class and
have typed some code in the R language.  Everything works fine if I
want the code to be typeset with sans serif font;  reserved words are
bolded.

However, if I try to use "Typewriter" in the settings dialog, it is
correctly shown as typewriter, but the bold is no longer there.

Here's what it says in the documentation, "Embedded Objects":

Note: If you don't get bold keywords when using typewriter fonts, your
typewriter font probably doesn't provide a bold shape. In this case
select a different one in the menu Document->Settings->Fonts. (The
fonts LuxiMono, BeraMono and Courier provide bold shapes.)

I changed my fonts in Documents/Settings:

1)  I tried both Courier and Beramono, but there was no difference in
the output.  What is happening?  Is this OS dependent?

2) Latin Modern Typewriter and LuxiMono are shown to be 'not
installed'.  Does anyone know where these are in Synaptic or
elsewhere?


Can anyone help me?

Regards,
Jay

In trying to create a minimal example, I have found that a standard
document with the book (AMS) document class works perfectly well with
the Courier font, as documented and expected.

The additional info (which I didn't report earlier) about my problem
was that I am using Sweave with LyX.  In fact, I modified Gregor
Gorjanc's literate-book.layout to Input amsbook.layout instead of
book.layout.

The end result is that if I take my file of document class book
(Sweave noweb), delete all of the noweb scrap environments, and change
the document class to book (AMS), then everything works perfectly.

It would seem that there is something happening with the LyX-Sweave
machinery which is causing the fonts in the Program Listing
environment to not appear bold, even for a reserved word in the R
language.  I do not know what is happening, but I will try to figure
it out.

I have attached the minimal example in case anybody else would like to
give it a try. (but please note that you would have to have configured
LyX to run with Sweave, and modified literate-book.layout as described
above).

Cheers,
Jay

Using Sweave for R code in LyX on Windows

Check out the following recent post by Gregor on using LyX with Sweave
on MS-Windows:

http://ggorjan.blogspot.com/2008/06/using-sweave-with-lyx-on-ms-windows.html

I just updated to LyX 1.5.5 on my Windows XP laptop.  I followed
Gregor's installation instructions from the Rnews article to the
letter.

The only thing extra for me was making sure that R was in the PATH.
To do that, go Start - Control Panel - System - Advanced -
Environment Variables, and then scroll in the list for the Path
variable to edit.  In my case, it sufficed to append
C:\PROGRA~1\R\R-2.7.0\bin to the list, but (of course) the location
where R is stored depends on the user.

With that small change everything worked fine.

Please note that - coincidentally - I had already installed Cygwin on
my system for other reasons; that may have helped with the relative
ease that I had with the configuration.

I have copied Gregor to this email. Perhaps we can combine our
experiences with the above mentioned post and add some material to the
LyX wiki for other users.

Best,
Jay

Guessing blind here, but maybe an encoding problem?  You might try
running iconv against one of them, converting to utf8 (with a new file
name so as not to overwrite the original), then see if LyX can open the
converted copy.

Otherwise, maybe you could post a small example that doesn't open in 1.5.3.

lyx2lyx failure

2008-02-11 Thread G. Jay Kerns
Dear LyX users,

I am in the process of graduating from Windows to Linux.  I installed
LyX 1.5.3 on an Ubuntu Gutsy using the Synaptic Package Manager.

Now it seems that I cannot open any of my old LyX files (<= 1.5.2).
It says that "(Myfile) came from an earlier version of LyX, but
lyx2lyx failed to convert the file."   I found an earlier post from
December that suggested changing

\language default

to

\language english

but this doesn't work for me because my file already has \language
english.  I checked the top of my file and it says

#LyX 1.4.3-5 created this file. For more info see http://www.lyx.org/

\lyxformat 245

Can anyone please help me?  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,
Jay
