This works! When adding this, the footer is shown only on the pages with

Yes the headings style is fancy and I put \rfoot{} in the preamble. But I

I'm trying to write a contract which has a chapter on almost all pages so

how to make sections in bibliography?

2012-02-15 Thread Marco Beishuizen

Hi,

I've tried all day to section my bibliography, but I keep getting errors. 
The sectioned bibliography in document settings is checked. Also two 
seperate bibtex databases are created, and added these to the bibliography 
in LyX. When unchecking sectioned bibliography, the bibliography works 
fine, but then it is not sectioned.


The errors I get are:
Missing $ inserted
Extra }, or forgotten $
Missing } inserted

Do I need to do something else to make sectioned bibliographies work in 
LyX?

LyX dumps core with locale setting at UTF-8

2011-01-05 Thread Marco Beishuizen

Hi,

My LyX (1.6.8) is exiting with:
...
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::runtime_error'
  what():  locale::facet::_S_create_c_locale name not valid
Abort (core dumped)
...

It seems a problem with the locale setting. When using en_US.UTF-8, LyX 
aborts like above. When setting locale to C, it runs without problems. 
But I want to use UTF-8 for accents etc. so how can I let LyX run with 
UTF-8?


I'm using LyX on FreeBSD 8.1-STABLE.

It seems a problem with the locale setting. When using en_US.UTF-8, LyX 
aborts like above. When setting locale to C, it runs without problems. 
But I want to use UTF-8 for accents etc. so how can I let LyX run with 
UTF-8?


I'm using LyX on FreeBSD 8.1-STABLE.

Thanks in advance,

LyX dumps core with locale setting at UTF-8

2011-01-05 Thread Marco Beishuizen

Hi,

My LyX (1.6.8) is exiting with:
...
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::runtime_error'
  what():  locale::facet::_S_create_c_locale name not valid
Abort (core dumped)
...

It seems a problem with the locale setting. When using en_US.UTF-8, LyX 
aborts like above. When setting locale to "C", it runs without problems. 
But I want to use UTF-8 for accents etc. so how can I let LyX run with 
UTF-8?

tex4ht on FreeBSD with LyX 1.5.7

2009-05-07 Thread Marco Beishuizen


Hi,

I'm looking for someone who has experience with exporting lyx documents to 
open document format in FreeBSD. I read that is done by the tex4ht 
package. I'm running LyX 1.5.7 on FreeBSD 7.2-ST, and LyX uses teTeX 3.0.


How do I install tex4ht on my system? The LyX-wiki says that it should 
already been installed but on my system I don't think it is. When I add a 
converter LaTeX (plain) - OpenDocument with the converter htlatex, LyX 
complains that an error occurred whilst running htlatex, and does 
nothing. I hope that someone here has an idea how to do this. Perhaps I 
should wait for LyX 1.6 submitted to the ports?


Thanks in advance,

Marco

exporting to ODF or DOC

2009-04-19 Thread Marco Beishuizen
Hi,

Is there any way of exporting a LyX document to OpenDocument or Word? In
LyX you can add the export to your menu but that only seems to change
the file extension, and not converting anything. I also saw that there
is a script tex4ht. But how do I install this?

I'm running LyX on FreeBSD 7.1-Stable.

Thanks in advance.

LyX kills X

2004-06-05 Thread Marco Beishuizen
Hi,
I recently installed LyX 1.3.4 on my DEC PWS 600au running XFce4 as 
windowmanager.

Problem is that LyX kills the X server when I try to open a document in 
the help section of the menu bar, like the tutorial or the user's guide.

Messages I get after the shutdown of X are:
...
lyx: SIGHUP signal caught
...
The application 'xfce4-panel' lost it's connection to the display:0.0;
Most likely the X server was shut down or you killed/destroyed the 
application
...

Does anyone know why this happens?
Thanks,

 OK, since there is not xforms-image-loader here, it means that
 configure determined that it cannot use the built-in image loader of
 xforms on your system and decided to use our own xpm image loader
 instead. However, this image loader has been removed in 1.3.0, because
 it should not be needed anymore.

 So we have to make the xforms detection work better on your system.
 Could you send me (privately) the config.log file that you get when
 compiling LyX 1.3.0?

I'll mail this to you seperately

 OK, since there is not xforms-image-loader here, it means that
 configure determined that it cannot use the built-in image loader of
 xforms on your system and decided to use our own xpm image loader
 instead. However, this image loader has been removed in 1.3.0, because
 it should not be needed anymore.

 So we have to make the xforms detection work better on your system.
 Could you send me (privately) the config.log file that you get when
 compiling LyX 1.3.0?

I'll mail this to you seperately

On both the Intel and the Alpha xforms 1.0 is installed from the ports.
Which version should I have that supports the TIFF image format? Strange
thing is that LyX-1.2.3 runs fine on both machines, and also previous
versions of LyX.

My language settings in LyX are correct.

After a lot of searching I found a website where someone experienced the

No need for creating babelbst.tex anymore. Changing language .mbs option
in makebst resulted in a working .bst file.

Changing to another language.mbs file in makebst solved this problem. It
generated a .bst file that works.

citation question marks and no bibtex references

2003-01-30 Thread Marco Beishuizen

Hi,

I tried to make my own .bst file with makebst. But when I try to use this
generated file and view my dvi-output I get question marks for all of my
citation references and no reference list. In LyX itself all looks fine.
My LaTeX log file shows some warnings like:

...
LaTeX Warning: Citation 'author' on page XX undefined on input line XXX
...

And this is probably my problem. But now I have no idea where to look next
to solve this problem.

Does anyone know what I should do?

Thanks,

Marco

 Does LyX (LaTeX) find your .bst-file? You can check this by looking into the
 LaTeX log (I don't know if it's called like this in english, in german it's
 LaTeX Protokoll).

I can't find anything like it in my LaTeX log, but I did ran a Texhash
after putting the new .bst file into
/usr/local/share/texmf/bibtex/bst/misc. I also did a reconfigure.

  But when I try to use this
  generated file and view my dvi-output I get question marks for all of my
  citation references and no reference list. In LyX itself all looks fine.
  My LaTeX log file shows some warnings like:

 What is your input in the database-entry of the bibtex-dialog? Does LaTeX find
 the bib-file?

I inserted it by browsing my filesystem and selecting the .bst and .bib
files. LyX removes the extensions afterwards.

 To me it looks like a problem in the .bib-file. Are all your entries correct?
 If you're not sure about that, check it or send me a minimal document with
 your bib-file (if it's too large, by privat mail).

The .bib file did work before I tried to make my own .bst file. The .bib
file is unchanged. I'll send my .bib file to your private adress. It's
12K.

 HTH,
 Dominik.-

Regards,

Marco

 Okay, as I replied in a private mail, your bibfile did not work absolutely
 correct, but it worked (with some error messages).

 Now, could you post your .bst-file. I'm far away from being a
 bibtex-specialist, but maybe I can have a look what the problem could be.

 How did you create your bst-file? With makebst?

 Bye,

 Dominik.-

I'll also send the .bst file to your private adress.
My .bst file was generated by makebst the way it is described in
~/texmf/doc/latex/custom-bib/README.389.

Thanks,
