I haven't been able to reproduce the problem in 1.1.5.

Format for \screen_font_fontname in lyxrc?

I changed my screen font to

\screen_font_roman -*-new century schoolbook

and found that I had to use quotes, as in

\screen_font_roman "-*-new century schoolbook"

otherwise when I started LyX the screen font would be simply "new"
(which isn't what I wanted).  With the quotes, LyX starts up with the
correct font (new century schoolbook), as I wanted.  Just want to
check if this is the correct syntax to use, or if there is

I'm not having any problems, but I decided to try this.  Part of the

 [kevin@localhost kevin]$ latex ltxcheck
 This is TeX, Version 3.14159 (C version 6.1)
 (/usr/lib/texmf/texmf/tex/latex/base/ltxcheck.tex
 LaTeX2e 1996/12/01 patch level 1
 Babel v3.6h and hyphenation patterns for american, german, loaded.
 
 LaTeX2e installation check file

 Before running this file through LaTeX2e you should have installed
 the Standard LaTeX files in their final `system' directories.
 This file should *not* be run in a directory that contains article.cls

Of course I don't know where all the files are so I take a look:

 [kevin@localhost kevin]$ locate ltxcheck
 /usr/lib/texmf/texmf/tex/latex/base/ltxcheck.tex
 [kevin@localhost kevin]$ locate article.cls
 /usr/lib/texmf/texmf/tex/latex/base/article.cls

So, ltxcheck.tex IS in the same directory as article.cls.  Now what do
I do?  :)  (LyX works correctly (i.e. I can write documents, save,
preview and print them, etc.), and I don't think I've written a LaTeX
file manually for some time (not since the Red Hat 4.x days).

This is a Red Hat 5.1 system with upgraded bits and pieces.  All of
the LaTeX stuff would have been installed during installation of the
Linux distribution.

 You should install xforms-devel too. I think it is the one which

Thanks, this did the trick.  This is now what the system looks like:

- Red Hat 5.1 with upgraded bits
- xforms-0.88.1-1.i386.rpm
- xforms-devel-0.88.1-1.i386.rpm
- lyx-1.0.1.tar.gz

and everything works fine.
