 Hello there!
 I am a relatively new lyx user and this is my first post so please

 I ve searched for at least 3 hours to give myself the answer to the
 subject's question . . .  what do i have to do in order to install a new
 package and make it work as if it were preinstalled in lyx?
 
 I am in the same position as dirac14. I began using LyX about a month ago,
 but in that time I have yet to figure out how to install new packages. I
 searched everywhere, but all the LyX information seems written for
 programmer-types, or people who know LaTeX. Yet the LyX webpages said one
 does not need to know LaTeX in order to use LyX.
 
 Does anyone have simple, regular, end-user English instructions for
 installing new packages?
 Any help is appreciated.
 
 

you should have the packages installed into MikTex (that is where all my
packages are stored). In Lyx, go to Documents-Settings. In Settings, go to
the bottom of the list on the left side, Latex Preamble. highlight that
and there should be a big blank box to the right instead of other options.
In this box you write,
\usepackage{packagename}
where packagename is the name of the package you downloaded from CTAN.

Hope this works.

Figure Numbering Error

2009-02-24 Thread Makhoma

 I don't think this has been answered before, but I am running into an 'error
undefined' problem when trying to export to pdf. I have placed the
\counterwithin{figure}{section} to the preamble and selected the AMS package
as I should, I was able to get \numberwithin{equation}{section} to work that
way. When I have it in the preamble it gives me the error, when I take it
out it exports normally, but all my figures are numbered sequentially
throughout.

 Perhaps I am missing a file, and if so: what file is it and where do I put
it so this works?

 If this is needed, I am running Ubuntu 8.04 and am using Lyx version 1.5.3
