Re: Using German and CJK

2015-05-21 Thread Matthias Hunstig
Hello Kai,

I am not familiar with cjk. But are you aware that you can change the
language for parts of your document? Just select, right-click,
Language. With English parts in a German document, this works fine,
including hyphenation. I have not tested other scenarios.

Regards

Matthias

 Hello LyX-Team,
 I hope this question is not too basic. I am writing a longer paper in
 german which uses many cjk characters and sentences. If i use german
 and utf8 as the document language I will get loads of errors etc. But
 if I switch to chinese language and utf8-encoding everything seems to
 work well, even umlauts.
 My question is: Does this affect the quality of the hyphenation etc.?
 I used some test examples and it broke in some cases the justification.

 Greetings,

Marcelo,

I am currently preparing a paper for another Elsevier journal. The
template in the current version works fine for me. As I understand it,
Nuclear Physics B is just a placeholder. Just change the class options
according to the style of Geoderma and adapt the name in the preamble.
This document contains a list of options:

Reverse search problem (with pipe?) [Windows 7, LyX 2.0.5, SumatraPDF]

2.0.4: GUI handling of EPS bounding boxes

2012-09-19 Thread Matthias Hunstig
Hello,

In June I have been writing about problems in 2.0.3 with negative bounding box 
values (http://article.gmane.org/gmane.editors.lyx.general/75783). In 2.0.4, 
this problem seems to be fixed at first glance, negative values are read from 
the file. But a new problem has arisen: As mentioned on the tracker 
(http://www.lyx.org/trac/changeset/036e0c2a/lyxgit), the GUI does not handle 
the bounding box correctly. In my tries (Windows 7), I get two cases:

a) Bounding box is ignored in GUI. For finding good bounding box values I have 
to guess and hope. This could be seen as a missing feature, but the feature was 
there in 2.0.3, so it is disappointing.
b) If I select anything else than the values read from the file and activate 
crop to bounding box, the figure completely disappears from the GUI (not from 
the created document). This is even worse and definitely a bug, not a missing 
feature.

I have not found out yet what determines whether I get case a) or b). For the 
time being, I will step back to 2.0.3 and use manual adjustment of bounding 
boxes as described in the link above. It would be nice if the GUI in the next 
version correctly handles bounding boxes.

Hello Jakob,

are you working in a network environment? In this case, the problem could be 
related to this and may be solved in the next version:
http://www.lyx.org/trac/ticket/8098

Apparently, Windows 7 with network users can be configured to either use the 
local profile folders (c:\users\...) or a profile folder on the network. In the 
first case (my current situation), LyX works. In the second (my previous 
situation), you get problems as described. Unfortunately, I cannot tell you how 
to change this setting, but you network admins may be able to do that.

I open a document I get the error message:

The selected document class .. requires external files that are not

I tried all steps of advice from the discussion above and it is still not

Do you have any ideas what I need to do?

Hello,

the same (submit a paper to Elsevier) on Monday. The following worked for me. I 
used one document, two .bib files, and all 10 figures were eps and in the same

- Use the elsarticle class. (http://wiki.lyx.org/Examples/Elsevier)
- Export as LaTeX (normal)
- Export as LyX-Archive
- Remove myarticle.lyx from the archive, add myarticle.tex instead.
- Upload zip

When previewing in LyX, use ps2pdf, as it may give different results than 
pdflatex (in my case, wrong cropping of eps figures). I needed no fine tuning 
of the TeX file, only had to add some Elsevier-specific lines of TeX code.

thanks for your input - all of you were right and had some useful info.

One in particular (Liviu - with the LyX archive) helped to identify graphic

Important things I learned:

1) Journals want flat file structure
2) only submit one .tex, otherwise the system is confused
3) include the bbl in the .tex - I think this was necessary, but might have 
been caused by two .tex files
4) It is very useful, to have a good LaTeX editor to do the fine tuning (I used 
kile)\
5) tikz is very nice, but they seem to use an old version. So I used the pdf as 
created by LyX for the preview instead.

Overall, long winding road - but it is done now.

AW: wrong cropping / bounding box in produced .tex (not in pdflatex)

2012-06-11 Thread Matthias Hunstig
Hello,

 I am writing a paper with some EPS figures which I have cropped by
 manually adjusting the bounding boxes. In Lyx and in PDFs created by
 pdflatex, everything looks fine. But using classic LaTeX (via dvi),
 the figures are cropped incorrectly. The values specified in LyX
 equal those found in the TeX code, and that code is the same when
 exported for LaTeX (normal) and for LaTeX (pdflatex), for
 example: \includegraphics[bb=30bp 60bp 1075bp
 805bp,clip,width=0.95\textwidth]{filename}

I now pretty sure the problem has to do with the negative bounding box defined 
in most of the figures (created by Matlab).
 
For example, in the eps file I read
%%BoundingBox:  -302-1   899   842

When clicking Get from file in Lyx, I get 0 0 1201 843, i. e. the bounding 
box is shifted so that the lower left corner is at (0 0). If I shift it back 
(by -302, -1), I see the wrong part of figure in LyX, but it is displayed

AW: wrong cropping / bounding box in produced .tex (not in pdflatex)

2012-06-11 Thread Matthias Hunstig
Hello,

 I am writing a paper with some EPS figures which I have cropped by
 manually adjusting the bounding boxes. In Lyx and in PDFs created by
 pdflatex, everything looks fine. But using classic LaTeX (via dvi),
 the figures are cropped incorrectly. The values specified in LyX
 equal those found in the TeX code, and that code is the same when
 exported for LaTeX (normal) and for LaTeX (pdflatex), for
 example: \includegraphics[bb=30bp 60bp 1075bp
 805bp,clip,width=0.95\textwidth]{filename}

I now pretty sure the problem has to do with the negative bounding box defined 
in most of the figures (created by Matlab).
 
For example, in the eps file I read
%%BoundingBox:  -302-1   899   842

When clicking Get from file in Lyx, I get 0 0 1201 843, i. e. the bounding 
box is shifted so that the lower left corner is at (0 0). If I shift it back 
(by -302, -1), I see the wrong part of figure in LyX, but it is displayed 
correctly in dvi and ps. That will now be my way to go for this paper.

The same happens if only one coordinate is negative.

Which fonts to match LyX output in other applications?

Hello,

I need to create some figures for inclusion in a LyX document, using different 
Windows applications (mainly Corel Draw and MATLAB). I want the font in these 
figures to be as close as possible to the fonts in my main document. How can I 
find out which fonts I should use to match
a) the normal text font
b) the math mode font (for both latin and greek letters)
and where do I find the appropriote font files?

The current document in question uses book (koma-script) with all font settings 
on standard.

I know there is PSfrag and I have experimented with it, but I do not really 
want to use it. I would prefer a simpler (and less perfectly looking) solution.

Completely removing LyX and MikTeX from Windows XP [was RE: pdflatex never finishes (LyX 2.0.1)]

2011-09-15 Thread Matthias Hunstig
Hi,

 It would be a good idea to export a file to LaTeX (pdflatex), then run
 pdflatex against it in a DOS window.  That might help pin down whether there
 are problems with your LaTeX (MiKTeX?) distribution.

I tried exporting three files and see three different behaviours. Looks like my 
whole installation is even more broken than I thought. I think I will wipe all 
LyX and MikTeX from disk and try re-installing afterwards.

If there anything I should delete after uninstalling the software from the

pdflatex never finishes (LyX 2.0.1)

2011-09-14 Thread Matthias Hunstig
Hello everybody,

today, I installed LyX 2.0.1 using Uwe's installer 
(http://developer.berlios.de/project/showfiles.php?group_id=5117release_id=18767)
 over my somewhat broken 2.0 installation 
(http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.editors.lyx.general/70495/focus=70618, main 
cause seems to be a problem with network drives and/or limited rights users in 
WinXP) in the hope that it might fix something.

Unfortunately, things got worse instead. Pdflatex now runs infinitely long (not 
proven, but at least very long, i. e. over one hour for a one page document) in 
the background. Tex files are created in the temporary folder, but no pdf is 
created. Any idea why this might be and how it could be solved?

To be honest, I am quite frustrated with LyX now. I love it when it works, but 
in the last weeks I spent more time fixing problems than actually writing in 
LyX. I just stumpled across Portable Lyx 2.0 
(http://portable-lyx.impossible-exil.info/). Maybe this is a solution for me 
and other people struggeling with installation problems.

2011-09-14 Thread Matthias Hunstig
Hello everybody,

today, I installed LyX 2.0.1 using Uwe's installer 
(http://developer.berlios.de/project/showfiles.php?group_id=5117release_id=18767)
 over my somewhat broken 2.0 installation 
(http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.editors.lyx.general/70495/focus=70618, main 
cause seems to be a problem with network drives and/or limited rights users in 
WinXP) in the hope that it might fix something.

Unfortunately, things got worse instead. Pdflatex now runs infinitely long (not 
proven, but at least very long, i. e. over one hour for a one page document) in 
the background. Tex files are created in the temporary folder, but no pdf is 
created. Any idea why this might be and how it could be solved?

To be honest, I am quite frustrated with LyX now. I love it when it works, but 
in the last weeks I spent more time fixing problems than actually writing in 
LyX. I just stumpled across Portable Lyx 2.0 
(http://portable-lyx.impossible-exil.info/). Maybe this is a solution for me 
and other people struggeling with installation problems.

Regards

Matthias

AW: use of \citet (with natbib numeric) gives (author?) error

2011-07-18 Thread Matthias Hunstig
Hello,

Julien pointed me to the right place:

 You also need to use a natbib-compatible bibliography style. You select
this by clicking on your BibTeX Generated Bibliography in your LyX
document and selecting e.g. plainnat

Actually, I would have chosen plainnat as in some older documents, had the 
option been there. But all I can chose from is plain. I think this once again 
is the network drives in Windows problem 
(http://www.mail-archive.com/lyx-users@lists.lyx.org/msg87682.html) as I am 
still using the same setup (Windows XP, network user with limited rights, LyX 
installed by a local admin).

I am now working on another computer (Windows 7, local admin installed and uses 
LyX) and the same document compiles fine after I chose plainnat from the many 
options offered.

Still no solution for the other computer, but at least I now know some 
background of the problem.

Hello Richard,

thanks for the answer. I do not think it is a Unicode problem because I 
generate the bibtex file from Zotero using IS0-8859-15 which has worked before. 
Also, all author names appear fine in the bibliography itself. Even those with 
special characters such as ï.

Any other ideas?

 This kind of thing is usually due to problems with the .bib file, and the
 problem is usually the presence of Unicode characters gotten from pasting a
 reference from the web or something. If you use bibtex for the processor,
 then the file really needs to be ASCII; if you use bibtex8, you can get away
 with 8-bit encodings; but Unicode needs special treatment and is not

Hello,

And thanks for the continuing help, Paul.

 Are there classes that you know you have installed in MiKTeX but do not 
 appear on the list in 1.6.10? It seems to be finding the classes you would 
 get with a minimal installation of MiKTeX. 

Yes. For example, koma-script ist installed and non of its classes not appear 
in the list.

 Also, did you try reconfiguring 1.6.10 after you deleted the local user 
 directory?

Yes, but it did not help.

 I can't remember: have we looked at your configuration log for 2.0.0?

I have posted it on the 22nd of June, a recent version is attached.

There are some DEBUG: Failed to remove file lines in the file.  As far as I 
can see, at least some of the files it tries to delete are in the program 
folder, to which the limited rights user does not have write access. Could that 
be source of problems?

 This looks suspiciously like William's configure.log.

The difference between William's situation and mine is that the classes appear 
to be unavailable in my setup, but I can create PDFs. As far as I understand 
it, William cannot convert at all. So I am much better of than him right now. 
Actually, I can live with the situation for the time being, it just means

 We can try an experiment to see if
 failed writes to the program directory might be the problem.
 
 Log in as the limited rights user and open a command prompt in the LyX
 2.0 user directory (C:\Documents and Settings\limited user
 id\Application Data\lyx20, if memory serves).  From that prompt, run
 
 C:\Program Files\lyx20\Python\python.exe C:\Program
 FIles\LyX2.0\Resources\configure.py
 
 which should do the same thing that Tools  Reconfigure does, but with
 file writes occurring in the local user directory (where the limited
 user has full permissions).  Does that fix any problems with 2.0?  (If
 so, you can do the same trick with 1.6.)

That was good hint, thanks a lot.

The command line in my case was:
Z:\ntdata\Anwendungsdaten\LyX2.0 C:\Program Files\lyx2.0\Python\python.exe 
C:\Program Files\LyX2.0\Resources\configure.py

It took a lot longer (something like 10 minutes) than the normal reconfigure 
does, but now I have my classes in the menu.

For LyX 1.6.10 it was much faster (seconds only) and also solved the problem:
Z:\ntdata\Anwendungsdaten\lyx16C:\Program Files\lyx2.0\Python\python.exe 
C:\Program Files\LyX 1.6.10\Resources\configure.py

Let me add that z:, where my user files are, is a mapped network drive.

So everything is fine now. Maybe writing to the user directory should become 
standard for the first configuration and Tools  Reconfigure?

Hello,

I must correct myself:

 One thing you might try is to delete the local LyX directory for the limited 
 rights user, then restart LyX (as the limited rights user) and let it try to 
 rebuild that directory.  I think the directory is usually stored at 
 C:\Documents and Settings\limited rights user id\Application Data\lyx.  
 (Unfortunately I don't have access to a Win XP machine anymore.)  Just 
 delete the entire directory.  I you have modified any bind or layout files, 
 you might want to back those up first, but if this is an out-of-the-box LyX 
 installation there is nothing there you need to worry about.

I tried that (directories are actually called LyX2.0 and lyx16). It worked for 
1.6.10 - thanks for the help - but for 2.0.0 the problem persists. So it 
probably is related to some change from 1.6 to 2.0.

It only partly worked for 1.6.10. I now have a very limited and to my eyes 
strange selection of classes available, the rest is still markes as 
unavailable; see attachment.

In 2.0.0., there are still not classes available in the menu at all.

It only partly worked for 1.6.10. I now have a very limited and to my eyes 
strange selection of classes available, the rest is still markes as 
unavailable; see attachment.

In 2.0.0., there are still not classes available in the menu at all.

 When you successfully run latex at a command prompt, you are doing so with 
 the limited rights account, correct?

Yes.

 Am I correct in assuming that if you log in with the local admin account, LyX 
 works correctly for you?

Yes.

 One thing you might try is to delete the local LyX directory for the limited 
 rights user, then restart LyX (as the limited rights user) and let it try to 
 rebuild that directory.  I think the directory is usually stored at 
 C:\Documents and Settings\limited rights user id\Application Data\lyx.  
 (Unfortunately I don't have access to a Win XP machine anymore.)  Just delete 
 the entire directory.  I you have modified any bind or layout files, you

I tried that (directories are actually called LyX2.0 and lyx16). It worked for

no classes available after installation of 1.6.10 and 2.0.0-3

2011-06-22 Thread Matthias Hunstig
Hello,

First of all sorry if this message comes twice. I sent it first yesterday 
without being subscribed, and according to 
http://news.gmane.org/gmane.editors.lyx.general it does not seem to have come 
through:

I am working on Windows XP as a network-authenticated (Kerberos) user with 
limited rights and I also have a local administrator account. Today, I have 
upgraded my 1.6.9 installation to 1.6.10 and installed 2.0.0-3, both with the 
local admin account. Everything worked perfectly with that account. I also had 
successfully installed 1.6.8 before using this path.

But when I now start LyX as the normal user with limited rights, no document 
classes are available in neither 1.6.10 nor 2.0.0. They are all in the list, 
but marked as not available. What can be the reason for this? I tried 
texhash --admin and texhash, but neither helped.

Thanks for your advice.

Hi,

I installed from this file, linked on the LyX front page:
ftp://ftp.lip6.fr/pub/lyx/bin/2.0.0/LyX-2.0.0-3-Installer.exe

I thought this was 2.0.0 stable with some bugs fixed, not RC3. Is that not 
correct?

Hi,

I should add the MikTeX itself is working fine, I can generate PDFs from tex 
files without problem. As I just found out, it seems that PDFs generated from 
LyX are also fine and respect the chosen class. So the only problem seems to be 
that LyX thinks that the classes are not installed even though they actually 
are.

Hi,

I installed from this file, linked on the LyX front page:
ftp://ftp.lip6.fr/pub/lyx/bin/2.0.0/LyX-2.0.0-3-Installer.exe

I thought this was 2.0.0 stable with some bugs fixed, not RC3. Is that not 
correct?

Regards

Matthias

Dear Matthias, AFAIK, 2.0RC3 installer for Windows has a problem that renders 
your MikTeX installation useless. This happened to me and I had to reinstall it 
again. Why didn't you install the stable version?

Hello,

First of all sorry if this message comes twice. I sent it first yesterday 
without being subscribed, and according to 
http://news.gmane.org/gmane.editors.lyx.general it does not seem to have come 
through:

I am working on Windows XP as a network-authenticated (Kerberos) user with 
limited rights and I also have a local administrator account. Today, I have 
upgraded my 1.6.9 installation to 1.6.10 and installed 2.0.0-3, both with the 
local admin account. Everything worked perfectly with that account. I also had 
successfully installed 1.6.8 before using this path.

But when I now start LyX as the normal user with limited rights, no document 
classes are available in neither 1.6.10 nor 2.0.0. They are all in the list, 
but marked as "not available". What can be the reason for this? I tried 
"texhash --admin" and "texhash", but neither helped.
Did you also try Tools>Reconfigure?

Richard


It's different than RC3. It's the third version of the installer for 2.0.0 
final. Some bugs have been fixed in the installer itself.

Also, the textclass.lst file. Please check that these have the right sort of

Here they are.
