putting

/Subtype/Link/A/Type/Action/S/URI/URI(file:./test/index.html)

the LyX box generates

So I think you should be able to get where you want to go by using LyX's 
internal URL insert.

Thanks for your interest Todd, in fact your test file worked. But what

I tried that Uwe, but it didn't work. However, I *think* I might have

./Subtype/Link/A/Type/Action/S/URI/URI(./front_page.htm).

In fact you can insert white space that won't be ignored by LaTeX by

It is of course, in a roundabout way. As I mentioned, there are

and it loads quite quickly into a browser.


What I haven't tried yet is inserting links, but there are instructions 
for doing this. For web purposes it could be a useful alternative to 
using PDFs. The engine that Texmaker uses to do the conversion is I 
believe a Perl script called 'ttwp', but I haven't had much luck in

LyX to HTML

2007-05-20 Thread Nick Hopton
I've been playing with ways of converting LyX to HTML under XP. One way 
of doing this is by exporting the LyX document as LaTeX, loading it into 
Texmaker and then using the Texmaker function to convert to HTML. This 
produces HTML pages with the LyX/LaTeX formatting preserved. Perhaps 
this might be useful for HTML pages with advanced mathematics. The 
conversion does have overheads, but some might find that these are 
outweighed by the benefits.


So far I've only tried this using an old LyX multi-page document, see 
what you think:

Yes, sorry, I've been using the 1.5 beta releases on XP. One other 
problem is (if I remember rightly) that on the Ubuntu side if you use 
'apt-get' or the Synaptic Package Manager to install LyX it also 
installs, without the option, a load of other stuff that you don't 
necessarily want, like TeTeX. Some people might prefer to work with 
TeXlive, for example.


This might be heresy, but to be honest I much prefer the way that LyX 
installs and works under XP.

I'm sure Uwe will want to fix the updater, but the question now is 
whether we can isolate what caused the problem.  This is always an

This I can believe. I shouldn't worry about it too much at this stage, 
it might just be an isolated glitch. No one else seems to be having this 
problem by the look of it.


Did you ascertain before reinstalling IM that IM itself was damaged (as 
opposed to simply being lost from the path)?


I didn't, Paul.

 Also, before the upgrade, was IM on the LyX path prefix or on the 
system command path (or both), and after the upgrade was it missing 
from those paths?


After the upgrade the LyX path pointed to the version of IM that gets 
installed within the LyX hierarchy. I'm not sure where the pointer was 
pointing (I can't believe I wrote that) before the update. I've now set 
the path within LyX to point to my new IM installation.


I'm not sure this matters, but do you have a full version of Python 
installed?  (I don't know if the updater uses Python, but the regular 
installer does, and apparently I avoided a known bug in an earlier 
installer because I have Python 2.3 rather than 2.5 installed.)


I have the full version of Python 2.5 installed, which LyX finds and 
adjusts the path accordingly.


Just an afterthought, does installing LyX make changes to the registry? 
I didn't think it did, but I do have software installed that is supposed 
to protect the registry from changes.

You have to reconfigure LyX when you made changes to LaTeX.
It is highliy recommended to reupgrade to MiKTeX 2.5. Run MiKTeX's 
update program twice when one run is not enough. Then reconfigure LyX.

[...]

You need to do this because by default MiKTex 2.5 installs in a 
different directory from MiKTex 2.4. MiKTex 2.4 installs in C:\Program 
Files\MiKTeX 2.4 and MiKTex 2.5 installs in C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.5. 
So LyX was looking for MikTex in a directory that didn't exist any 
longer after the upgrade. When you run LyX reconfigure it hunts the new 
version of MikTex down and makes the necessary adjustments.

pdflatex with Miktex 2.4 worked fine.


You have to run MiKTeX's update program eventually twice. This is not 
often needed but test it out if it then works.

LyX for Windows, latest Alpha release (1.5.0svn)

If I want to view a document as HTML (View - HTML) I have to first go

Would it be possible for new Alpha versions to be shipped without these

I have a more and more annoying problem. The pdf-files I create works 
for about 90% of the colleagues I send them to. But on some computers 
(or rather installations) the fonts get messed up. This has always been 
on Windows machines (but that could be because almost all my colleagues 
use that).
The problem can be that all text is typeset in a mono-spaced font, or 
that the math-fonts disappear, or in printing (mainly I get described 
by mail, so I can not get the details of the problem, but it seems to 
differ).
An example is the file on http://homepage.mac.com/anek/Download/ 
Litteratur_utm_brottmek.pdf which, when I brought it up in Acrobat 
Viewer (via IE) on a Windows machine, looked fine on screen, but then 
printed with a mono-spaced font.
The problem has occurred with various versions of LyX 1.4 and with 
different templates and ways to generate pdf (pdflatex, via dvi, via 
postscript, etc).


Has anyone experienced anything similar. Or better still, does anyone 
know about a cure?!
(The one I have is opening the file in GraphicConverter, saving as Tif, 
re-opening and printing as pdf, but this is not really ideal...)

Hello Anders, your file printed fine here using Adobe Reader 7. 
Everything lined up neatly on the RH margin and printed nicely with a 
proportionally-spaced Roman font. Perhaps it's not a LyX/LaTeX problem?

Reader to English, this is what I'm using. Just a thought.

Hello Uwe, Okay, I copied the new LyX.py to 'C:\Program Files\LyX 
1.5svn-01-02-2007\Resources\lyx2lyx', started LyX, ran reconfigure a 
couple of times, restarted LyX and then tried to load a file that worked 
with the previous Alpha version. This didn't work and produced the 
following:

Yes, you did. LyX.pyc is a compiled version of LyX.py, generated by python.
This us used to speed up subsequent runs of lyx2lyx.
Your problem is that your python installation is crippled. Get yourself a
full python installation (2.3 or above), and it will work.
