Hi, thank you for the response:

Ok, everything was where you say.

Biblatex.module was in the ~/application support/Lyx–1.6/Layouts

All the files of the latex directory of the packet I've downloaded  
was in

the  ~/tex/latex/biblatex directory

biblatex.bst was in ~/Library/Texmf/Bibtex/bst

At this point, in the Readme of Biblatex say

[…] and the file in the 'bibtex' directory [it refers to  
biblatex.bst] to

TEXMFLOCAL/bibtex/bst/biblatex/


I just create this directory and put the biblatex.bst there. Now I  
hace two

biblatex.bst, one in ~/Library/Texmf/Bibtex/bst and another
in ~/Library/Texmf/Bibtex/bst/biblatex


Make sure you do texhash (not rehash as you say above);


I'm sorry!. I did sudo texhash, but I wrote rehash in the post. Was  
an error

while writing…


I've done texhash and reconfigure, but the module doesnt appears in  
the D

ocument→Settings→Modules...

It doesn't work because I have two biblatex.module files or two
biblatex.bst?

Now I'm making the references manually —make a footnote and write  
the whole
reference. Copy it into the biliography append, and its OK. And I  
can put
Ibíd or Op. cit.!— Works very fine and whithout downloading  
anything!.
Really, I need to make the references automatically, I'm typing a  
lot of

them, but i don't know what happens with my Lyx.

Hi there,

I'm using Biblatex successfully without anything selected in Document- 
Settings-Modules. Perhaps this step isn't necessary? As it happens  
I don't have a Biblatex option to select here, just as yourself. (In  
fact, I'm not 100% sure a biblatex module was available for download  
when I set Biblatex up on my machine a month or two ago.)


I have 'default' selected in  Document-Settings-Bibliography and the  
following two lines in preamble:


\usepackage[style=chicago-notes-df]{biblatex}
\bibliography{name of bib file without .bib extension}

Everything has worked for me with no problems. Chicago notes is a  
suitable whole reference citation format - but you'll need to download  
the relevant files http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/entries/biblatex-chicago-notes-df.html 
. The documentation is clear - put things where it says and it should  
work fine.
