Hello,

I'm aware that the following question is more latex- than lyx-oriented but
maybe someone can help me out...

Is there a way to change the amount of space between the footnotes and the
last line of text at the bottom of the page ? I'd like to increase the space
since I use double-spacing in my text and it looks ugly to have the footnote
(including the line above it) so close to the last line of text.

Thanks in advance,
Natal Vande Casteele

Re: No error message if disks are full?

  Yes, this is the case. I have also encountered this 'problem' -- the
file
  written away is 0 bytes and an error message is only printed on the
console
  which is not good when running under XWindows since one doesn't bother
  looking at the console output and thus has no way of knowing the file
was
  actually not saved.
 

 I know it's just a matter of personal taste, but I personally like the
little
 "xconsole" program...just have it there around in a corner of your
screen...
 Another trick can be to use a totally transparent ETerm that does a
tail -f
 /var/log/messages , so you'll have the messages appearing right in your
root
 window...
 Of course, that means you want to look at all the messages your system
sends
 to "you" ; which is in my sense not a bad habit...

You have a point here... I just wasn't aware that there was a way to make
the console message appear in XWindows and that you don't have to Alt-F1
everytime to read them. [I tried the xconsole program but no messages
appeared there while I did get messages on the Alt-F1 screen, am I doing
something wrong?]

But that doesn't take away the fact that writing away a 0 byte Lyx file
could be warned about in Lyx itself. I don't want to blow this whole thing
up but Lyx is so great because even a newbie can use it; newbies however,
mostly aren't aware of "tail -f /var/log/messages" commands... (as the
situation described by Ingo Kloecker illustrated)

Re: No error message if disks are full?

 Hmmm, this is strange, since LyX checks when closing the file whether
 the write was successful (if I understand correctly). The relevant
 code is

 // Write marker that shows file is complete
 fprintf(file, "\n\\the_end\n");
 if (file.close()) {
 if (flag)
 lyxerr.print(_("Error! Could not close file
properly: ")
  +  filename);
 else
 WriteFSAlert(_("Error! Could not close file
properly: "),
  filename);
 return false;
 }

 I would think that this returns false as long as a write failed at
 some point. Am I wrong? Another possiblity uis that the warning showed
 up on console and not as a popup.

Yes, this is the case. I have also encountered this 'problem' -- the file
written away is 0 bytes and an error message is only printed on the console
