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...

Re: LyX to Adobe PDF

1999-05-21 Thread Thierry Michalowski

Here is a copy of what I mailed to John yesterday: :-)

This was already discussed in a thread some days ago.
You should look at the archives for the full thing.
Alll options are about creating PostScript (which is what LaTeX is
supposed to do
after all) and then converting it to PDF. Have a look at Acrobat
Distiller , or
at ghostscript (free!) ...
Hope this helps
