I agree; it shouldn’t be that hard. To me it would make sense to have 
the selection of the “Frame” environment automatically create a new 
slide without the need for a separate end of frame marker. However, I 
suppose there may be some folks who want to use the “Frame” 
environment for some content other than the Frame title. For them, we 
could have a “Frame-New-Slide” environment that would automatically 
create a new slide.


That’s the way it works in Markdown. Just put a heading hashtag # 
before your text and that line becomes the title of the new slide. 
Easy as pie.


Virgil




Since both of you replied but didn't directly commented on my 
suggestion (basically, use increased depth/indentation for stuff that 
should go on a frame which makes the whole separator machinery 
unnecessary between frames), I am wondering whether you had any 
thoughts about it or whether the suggestion isn't clear enough.


Daniel


Daniel,
I can only speak for myself.  Since I am not a developer, and know 
nothing about what is behind the screen of Lyx/Beamer, I assume that 
there is a (valid?) reason behind the need for an End-Of-Frame, without 
which, presumably, things will go fall apart.  All I know is that it IS 
difficult, right now, and --  I suspect-- does not need to be.

Like you, I was constantly frustrated by the seeming difficulty of 
inserting an end-of-frame marker to the end of a slide. I didn’t find 
it intuitive at all. However, after much use, it has now become second 
nature.


What I seemed to discover is that the secret (if that’s the right 
word) is to place the cursor at the bottom of the current frame in an 
**unnested** and content-free environment and then hit . It 
seems to work best if the unnested, empty environment is “standard,” 
but it also works for me if the environment is “itemize,” which it 
often is in my Beamer presentations. As I love keystroke combinations, 
after composing the last bullet point of a slide (“frame” in 
Beamer-speak), I hit  to obtain an empty environment. I then 
hit  as many times as necessary to remove any nesting. I 
then hit  and, voila, an end-of-frame marker appears.


Virgil


Virgil,
My experience was similar, but I had trouble detecting or deciphering 
what is the nature of the environment my cursor was in-- the screen did 
not magically change to green or somesuch safe color when the cursor 
entered the right environment, so I ended up hitting /enter/, /shift 
enter/, /control enter /etc. until somehow I got to the desired environment.
   I think that your experience confirms my feeling that it shouldn't 
HAVE to be that hard.  OTOH, Chinese, for me, is very difficult, because 
I don't know it, but 1.5 billion Chinese have no trouble with it, so if 
I knew Lyx/Beamer as well as they know Chinese, this thread would have 
never started.

issues with
this suggestion that I have not thought careful enough about but 
on the face

of it, it seems like a good idea to me and to solve the issues you
mentioned. What do you think?


I think the workflow you're suggesting makes the not-always-true 
assumption that the user does not use the "frame" layout for the 
*content* of the frame, and only uses nested layouts (e.g., itemize 
or standard). Did I understand right?


Yes. It is not a conservative approach. It suggest to not use the frame
layout for the content because, if I see it correctly, this can be 
equally
achieved by using a nested standard layout. So, why not have just 
one way of

doing things. And it seems to me more consistent in that, say, itemized
lists have to be nested as well within a frame which makes them 
appear at
another level than the content of the frame when not nested but they 
are

not. Isn't that a bit strange or misleading?

Instead, everything will have to be nested if it should go on a 
frame. (Of
course there must be a lyx2lyx mechanism to transfer old beamer 
documents to

the new "nesting-style".)

The workflow would in the new style would be like this:

1. Select the Frame layout to create a new frame.
2. Press enter which creates a nested Standard paragraph to add 
content.
3. Press enter twice to un-nest and get a Frame layout which starts 
a new

frame.

Doesn't this appear more simple and intuitive?


It does. I think it is a reasonable proposal. I'm just not sure 
everyone will agree. For example, our own beamer example uses the 
frame layout for content.


What abut making it so that if the user changes the layout to 
"frame title", then a *new* frame is started (i.e., LyX realizes 
"oh this frame already has a frame title so the user must want a 
new frame)?


I still tend to prefer the way I suggested because of its simplicity
(especially for new users or people who use, say, beamer not 
frequently)

unless it has some flaw I missed.


Perhaps we can start by writing some use cases that are currently 
annoying with the current interface. Then we can propose different 
interfaces to make those workflows easier. I think your proposal is a 
reasonable one, but I'm not sure it's the only one. Also, I'm 
hesitant to start this conversation since I would really want to see 
Jürgen's thoughts and I don't think he has much time these days.


The main confusion I see is that I think users would like one key 
combination that always produces a new frame. Currently, the user has 
to think whether to do "Alt + P, return" or "Alt + P, shift + 
return", depending on what nesting level they are currently at. Do 
you agree this is the main problem that your proposal and my proposal 
were both trying to solve? Is there any other big issue with the 
current workflow?


For me the key combinations is already where it starts. I don't use 
any. I mean, I use the standard ones that work in every application 
(copy, paste, cut, select all, etc.) But apart from that I never got 
the hang of learning or using any key combinations specific to some 
application. I am very much a toolbar and menu guy. In turn, I really 
appreciate when I have to use these as seldom as possible. Hence my 
urge to have as many features work with just pressing some obvious 
keys such as the enter key (several times if need be). But I tend to 
think I am not the only person who works that way and so far I found 
professional applications to respect this preference quite well.


Daniel

Since I am the one who started this END-OF-FRAME discussion because of 
my inability to do the simplest thing (adding a frame/slide where I 
wanted it), perhaps I should make my problem clearer than I managed to 
do initially.  Depending on where the cursor is in an existing 
presentation document, some commands are not shown in the menus, and 
some keyboard combinations are disabled or do nothing. Since I don''t 
use Lyx/Beamer often, I am hazy about what will work when the cursor is 
somewhere at the end of an existing frame, where I THINK it should be 
ready for a new frame or a frame terminator. If there was a way to force 
a frame terminator at the end of a frame, where it should not mess 
things up, it would make the occasional user less confused and frustrated.

Thanks, EL-- I shall check it out.  However, in the meantime I 
discovered that (as is often the case..) it was all my fault, and that 
"missing command" was hidden from me because the cursor was in the wrong 
place/environment.  Had I been designing Lyx, I would have left the 
commands but gray them out when they should not be used, but 
fortunately, I did not design Lyx.  It is possible that they were hidden 
for esthetic reasons, to eliminate clutter.

Ehud,

With the cursor at the end of the content of a frame, type 'call 
newframe' (without the quotes) in the buffer and hit enter.

Who said persistence cannot make up for stupidity and ignorance?   I 
finally found what was my problem, and-- even better-- I solved it.  My 
mistake was that I was trying to insert an end-of-frame NOT in the 
standard environment, but while the cursor was in some graphics 
environment (I think).  Once I managed to get the cursor into a 
non-magical environment, the missing commands appeared in the Insert 
menu, and all is well. I guess Lyx tries hard to help the user by hiding 
from her the commands that cannot work in the current environment.  That 
is a sensible thing to do, but when you are as ignorant as I was (until 
now) it can get very confusing and frustrating.
   In addition, although I cannot upgrade to V. 2.3.6, the "missing" 
commands exist in 2.3.2.

   Thanks for the speedy and helpful advice--  it is much appreciated.

Thanks for the speedy response, but, alas, neither approach solved my 
problem.  Paul's suggestion ignored the fact that (at least on MY lyx, 
v. 2.3.2) there is no Insert > Frame separator Below (as I lamented in 
my OP).  I vaguely remember seeing, and even using, that magical 
Separator, but it has now vanished.  Rich's approach merged the moved 
frame with the one near its new home, but-- since there is no obvious

A second approach:

1. Open outline window to left of beamer class window if not already

2. Place cursor on the frame you want to move.
3. Use the up- and down-arrows at the bottom right of the window to 
move the

Forgot about that (since I never use the outline window). Unless the

Are you opening this file in LyX from two different

  Linux-based path. Maybe running LyX under Cygwin, and then not
  under Cygwin?


If you are looking at files using two different operating
  systems (or shared across two different computers with
  different users, so different absolute paths to files), you
  can manually enter a relative path to the figures. LyX will
  always store that relative path just fine. The only issue
  arises if you decide to change the figure file and use the
  "Browse" button to find the file. But again, once you have
  found that file, you can alter the beginning (absolute) part
  of the path and replace it with the appropriate relative path
  with ".." and the like.

I didn't try AVI but MP4 does not work, so conversion to MOV is

Once the learning curve has flattened, this is trivial and works well.

Jurgen & Scott,
As I mentioned above, I have an old presentation, which was

  old presentation.  I inserted the new slide/frame from the Insert
  menu (Separated Frame Below), which inserts a frame separator
  followed by Frame.. Frame Title etc., following TNODT (The New Way
  Of Doing Things.)  Upon compiling (with no errors reported), that
  newly inserted frame and frame title generates a blank space and
  other unexpected and undesired effects.  That is the reason I
  needed just a separator.  My mother told me I was special, but
  that situation must have happened to others before, and might
  happen again, which is why I screamed publicly for help.

If you want easy TexLive in Linux, install using the distro package 
manager ONLY.  Many distros do a good job packaging texlive, and offer 
easy upgrades whenever TexLive itself is updated.  TexLive may be 
split into 5-10 packages; pick what you need or just install all of it 
if you want an easy (albeit disk-consuming) install.


This goes for any software. Use the distro package manager, and only 
that.  Obviously, go for a distro that packages just about all the 
software you want.  Debian, or some Debian-derivative like Ubuntu may 
be a good choice.


Downloading software and installing it outside the package manager is 
possible, but it is always more work than just using the package 
manager. Keeping such software up-to-date is more work, and sometimes 
the package manager will install upgrades not compatible with your 
"outsider" software. There are usually no such problems when using the 
package manager exclusively.  (It may happen, but that is considered a 
bug in the distro, so they work hard to avoid that.)


Installing a big piece of software, such as Texlive, outside of the 
distro package manager is harder. You will then have to deal with 
paths, privileges and dependencies.  That may be ok for an experienced 
linux sysadmin - but it is not a smooth method. For smooth, use the 
package manager every time, and a distro that has what you need.

Liviu's PPA has a package named fonts-lyx that will create a folder

I get TeXLive from a different PPA:

Thanks Paul-- silly me-- I was trying it without an open file, thinking

Once I opened a file it worked as it should.  A bit confusing for

The only (ugly) way I found around it is to use a dummy short title, and

Can anyone shed light on this?  Was this intentional?

  It is for me. When you hit return after a frame title, you're in

  frame. As soon as you change to any other environment, though,
  you're out of the frame environment and need to nest under it.

  Ehud,
  
  
  If you begin an itemization or enumeration after the frame title,
  you need to "increase depth" to tuck it into the frame. Failure to
  do so results in the \end{frame} coming after the title and before
  the itemization. The default binding is alt-shift-right, or you
  can use the increase depth button on the toolbar (default location
  is three icons right of the itemize button), or Edit > Increase
  List Depth on the menu.
  
  
  For starting a new frame, try alt-P followed by shift-return.
  FWIW, I use the cua binding, but I added a custom binding,
  assigning "call newframe" to ctrl-alt-return. That starts a new
  frame from anywhere.
  
  
  I'm also running Mint, with LyX 2.2.2.

Hi Michael,


If you want tlmgr my guess is you will have to install TeX
Live

manually, using install-tl. See here:

https://www.tug.org/texlive/quickinstall.html

If you have trouble, the tex-live mailing list is very
helpful:

http://lists.tug.org/tex-live


I have a script that automates everything and makes things
easy, but it

only works on Ubuntu. I think it would take a lot of work to
adapt it to

Mageia5 but just in case you want to see how something in
particular is

done, it is here:

https://github.com/scottkosty/install-tl-ubuntu


Best,


Scott

Thanks for the feedback. The easiest would be to offer it as a separate

Can I make it a bit more accessible and not hidden under custom insets?

Re: Updating TexLive from Ubuntu/Mint

2016-03-22 Thread UD

  
  
I had installed TeXLive in Mint through the Synaptic package
manager, but I believe that-- as is usual with Ubuntu-- they do not
keep up with updates, especially with something as package-rich as
Latex.   Under Windows it is possible to maintain Latex packages up
to date using either the MikTex package manager or the one that come
with TexLive for Windows, but the debian-based distros like (for
good reasons) to restrict updating to their own mechanisms.  Oh
well... it's a compromise I can live with.
Thanks for the suggestions.

On Mint if /opt does not exist, you might need to do something like the

Re: Generating a bbl File

I repeat my request to activate this option by default, perhaps with a 
warning (shown when the option is actually used) that there are problems 
with multiple bibliographies.  My colleagues have often complained about 
the ornate dance that is required to produce the Latex file /with/ the 
content of the .bbl file embedded in it.  Since this is a routine 
application (until journals accept Lyx files, it must be faced each time 
you submit an article to a journal), it would be very helpful to have it 
by default.

Sorry, I forgot, we do not enable it by default.

There are instructions about how to get this in the file 
include_bib.py, which you will find in your LyX installation (e.g., at 
/usr/share/lyx/scripts/). The easiest thing to do is to open your 
preferences file and add these two lines:


\format ltxbib tex LaTeX (With Bib)document,menu=export
\converter pdflatex ltxbib python -tt $$s/scripts/include_bib.py

Re: Generating a bbl File

2013-05-09 Thread UD
I repeat my request to activate this option by default, perhaps with a 
warning (shown when the option is actually used) that there are problems 
with multiple bibliographies.  My colleagues have often complained about 
the ornate dance that is required to produce the Latex file /with/ the 
content of the .bbl file embedded in it.  Since this is a routine 
application (until journals accept Lyx files, it must be faced each time 
you submit an article to a journal), it would be very helpful to have it 
by default.

Re: Palatino linotype in Lyx

Liviu,
The issue was not whether anything worked with Palatino-- I said
earlier on that it did, but could not tell whether Palatino was the
same as Palatino Linotype.  The question was why URWPalladio, which
is said to be a free clone of the commercial Palatino Linotype, and
which appears in the list of non-Latex fonts, fails to compile with
Lyx, even though it appears to be install on my Lubuntu 12.10
system.  If you can show me how to compile it I shall be grateful.

Re: Palatino linotype in Lyx

2013-03-09 Thread UD

  
  
Thanks, Liviu-- this was very helpful. However:

  It still leaves open the question of why I cannot compile a
document (with neither Xetex nor Luatex) with a font that is
available from the (non-TeX) Lyx's list of fonts.
  I guess that since the standard Palatino is really
URWPalladio, then that entry in the non-TeX list should be
removed and Palatino should be renamed as URWPalladio.
  

This foray into the world of font names, copyrights and shapes has
been fascinating and educational for me.

blamed (at least if it works with XeTeX) because differentiating between
system fonts that work with XeTeX and not LuaTeX is overkill. Rather this
should be fixed on the LuaTeX side.

BTW-- I ran texhash just to make sure the database was updated.

I don't think this helps with LuaTeX font problems. AFAIK, there is a
separate LuaTeX font database but I did not dive into LuaTeX yet.

I usually put (ERT) \centering just before I paste the graphics into
the float.

  This question comes up frequently and multiple solutions have

  I believe LyX just adopts the LaTeX default. 
  But a nice feature request would be for a checkbox in LyX to
center align items in floats.

As someone who had used Miktex on Windows for years, I also wanted to

If you have installed via synaptic / apt-get / software-centre, then you won't 
have tlmgr
installed (based on debian / ubuntu policies - package management only via 
package manager.)

I guess the problem possibly came because you installed tlmgr and used it on 
your installation via
apt. This might have led to inconsistencies.

Either don't use tlmgr, or install texlive from their website and not via the 
package manager
(apt-get, synaptic, software-centre, ...)

"Mystery" solved-- with texlive 2009 I loaded many additional packages, 
which I forgot to load

upon upgrading.  Once I did that, all is well.

I have upgraded to texlive 2012 (from texlive 2009) on ubuntu 12.04, 
32 bit.
I did it by adding a ppa for backport of texlive 2012, followed by 
sudo apt-get install texlive and all seemed to go without a hitch.
However, when I tried to compile some Lyx files that have worked fine 
with texlive 2009, I got error messages:

subscript.sty not found,
or
movie15.sty not found.
I ran sudo texhash and reconfigured Lyx, but the errors persist.
I then exported the Lyx file to plain latex and it compiled without a 
problem, including the subscripts.
When I look at the Lyx /Tools/Texinfo and look for Latex styles, I do 
not see subscript.sty.

What is going on?

Thanks

Re: Uninstalling compiled-from-source Lyx

Thanks, Stephan, but since I now have a working system I prefer to deal 
with that the next time it becomes an issue (if it does).


Thanks for the help--

Since I can't get the spellchecker to work with my compiled-from-source
Lyx 2.0.4 (all the relevant boxes are grayed out, despite having all the 
dictionaries and spellcheckers installed), I would like to
uninstall it.
However,  the installation was done from the source, not through the ubuntu 
package
manager, so I need to do it by hand, but

sudo make uninstallin the source directory

returns: make: *** No rule to make target `uninstall'.  Stop.

Any advice?

As mentioned already in this thread this should work and it worked for me.
In case you're interested in a solution you have to tell more about
where you are doing these steps as a recipe to follow in detail.
E. g. is the source directory the top level directory of the checkout
or is it the sub directory src? And post the complete output if there is any.
