Hi Uwe,

a few days ago I installed LyX+MikTex under Windows 7 (Enterprise 
Edition) using your Altinstaller Complete (i.e. LyX 1.6.3 plus MikTex) 
and to my great delight


  * It was a breeze - everything went smoothly*

Just, towards the end, when LyX starts checking for installed packages 
- one ought to suggest to users to go out for dinner. When after the 
dessert Lyx is checking : dont panic.


Thanks for a  great  installer,

Greetings,
H.Peter

Hello LyXers,

Hi Uwe,

Thanks for being so fast as compiling (and thanks all the team for the 
new version).


I noticed there is a change for elyxer and embedded images. For people 
who do not have python installed on their machine, the hack to have 
elyxer to work has changed (the --directory $$r has to be added to the 
LyX-HTML converter, as it has been added in the default installation).


As a reference, the process is the following:

1- copy the elyxer.py (at least version 0.27) into LyX scripts folder, 
which should be on most machines:

C:\Program Files\LyX 1.6.4\Resources\scripts

2- in LyX, got to Tools-Preferences, then go to File 
Handling-Converters section. Select the LyX - HTML converter 
definition, and replace the Converter line

elyxer --directory $$r $$i $$o
by
python $$s/scripts/elyxer.py --directory $$r $$i $$o
[If you have used this trick before with 1.6.3 and kept the old 
preferences when installing 1.6.4, the old line to replace should be

python $$s/scripts/elyxer.py $$i $$o
and you should replace it by the same line with the added --directory $$r]

3- Press Modify then Save. You should now be able to export and view 
with elyxer and have the images.


Without this trick, on my machine, the default code results in elyxer 
being opened in my text editor (the default action for .py files when 
you do not have python installed is probably to open them in a editor, 
or to do nothing).


I hope this can be useful for other people.

Best regards,

Olivier

Here is a variant for people who do not want to (or cannot) copy the

Assuming you have elyxer installed in
C:\Program Files\elyxer
The line to use in step 2 becomes

python C:/Program Files/elyxer/elyxer.py --directory $$r $$i $$o

Note that you can also use backslashes:
python C:\Program Files\elyxer\elyxer.py --directory $$r $$i $$o

You must take care to enclose the path with  if you have spaces (like 
between 'Program' and 'Files').


This variant has the advantage that you do not need to do step 1 at 
every time you install / uninstall LyX and that you can do it as a user 
if you are not administrator (i.e. if you cannot write in the Program 
Files directory, you can have elyxer somewhere in your account).

PS: For people who wonder how one can run python while it is not

For this version this is not possible due to bugs in eLyXer. The main one is that eLyXer cannot

Hi,

Well, LyX 1.6.3 was released on June 4th, while 1.6.2 was released on 
March 15, so it seems like this file dates from 1.6.2.
Usually, Uwe's Alternative installer is released few hours after the 
announcement, while the other installer is released several days after, 
so it looks like that file is from the alternative installer of 1.6.2.


I think the other installer installs the program somewhere in your 
personal folder (in C:\documents and settings) when you choose to 
install for the user only. I do not remember the alternative installer 
doing that, so if your lyx executable is in your personal folder 
(probably in one on the hidden directories Local Settings\Application 
Data, Application Data or Local Settings\Apps), it is likely the 
other installer. But that's from memory, so I may be wrong.


Also, and that's again from memory [so I might very well be confused], 
LyX's shortcut in the alternative installer points to a bat file, 
contains the version number in its name, and is located in a sub-folder 
of the start menu, together with the uninstaller. The other installer is 
different, but I do not remember on which point (I think it does point 
to the executable and does not have the version in the shortcut name).


Best regards,

Olivier

Re: [announce] LyXWinInstaller for LyX 1.6.4

2009-08-25 Thread Uwe Stöhr

 I noticed there is a change for elyxer and embedded images. For people who do 
not have python
 installed on their machine, the hack to have elyxer to work has changed (the 
--directory $$r has
 to be added to the LyX-HTML converter, as it has been added in the default 
installation).

My installer will set up eLyXer automatically in the next version.
For this version this is not possible due to bugs in eLyXer. The main one is that eLyXer cannot 
handle paths with spaces but Windows default installation directory contains spaces. We are working 
on this problem and as soon at this is fixed I'll release a new installer version with full eLyXer 
support.

Hi,

Well, LyX 1.6.3 was released on June 4th, while 1.6.2 was released on 
March 15, so it seems like this file dates from 1.6.2.
Usually, Uwe's Alternative installer is released few hours after the 
announcement, while the other installer is released several days after, 
so it looks like that file is from the alternative installer of 1.6.2.


I think the other installer installs the program somewhere in your 
personal folder (in C:\documents and settings) when you choose to 
install for the user only. I do not remember the alternative installer 
doing that, so if your lyx executable is in your personal folder 
(probably in one on the hidden directories Local Settings\Application 
Data, Application Data or Local Settings\Apps), it is likely the 
other installer. But that's from memory, so I may be wrong.


Also, and that's again from memory [so I might very well be confused], 
LyX's shortcut in the alternative installer points to a bat file, 
contains the version number in its name, and is located in a sub-folder 
of the start menu, together with the uninstaller. The other installer is 
different, but I do not remember on which point (I think it does point 
to the executable and does not have the version in the shortcut name).


Best regards,

Olivier

Hi Uwe,

Thanks for being so fast as compiling (and thanks all the team for the

I noticed there is a change for elyxer and embedded images. For people 
who do not have python installed on their machine, the hack to have 
elyxer to work has changed (the "--directory $$r" has to be added to the 
LyX->HTML converter, as it has been added in the default installation).


As a reference, the process is the following:

1- copy the elyxer.py (at least version 0.27) into LyX scripts folder, 
which should be on most machines:

C:\Program Files\LyX 1.6.4\Resources\scripts

2- in LyX, got to Tools->Preferences, then go to File 
Handling->Converters section. Select the "LyX -> HTML" converter 
definition, and replace the Converter line

elyxer --directory $$r $$i $$o
by
python $$s/scripts/elyxer.py --directory $$r $$i $$o
[If you have used this trick before with 1.6.3 and kept the old 
preferences when installing 1.6.4, the old line to replace should be

python $$s/scripts/elyxer.py $$i $$o
and you should replace it by the same line with the added --directory $$r]

3- Press "Modify" then "Save". You should now be able to export and view 
with elyxer and have the images.


Without this trick, on my machine, the default code results in elyxer 
being opened in my text editor (the default action for .py files when 
you do not have python installed is probably to open them in a editor, 
or to do nothing).


I hope this can be useful for other people.

Here is a variant for people who do not want to (or cannot) copy the 
elyxer.py file into their lyx folder.

Assuming you have elyxer installed in
C:\Program Files\elyxer
The line to use in step 2 becomes

python "C:/Program Files/elyxer/elyxer.py" --directory $$r $$i $$o

Note that you can also use backslashes:
python "C:\Program Files\elyxer\elyxer.py" --directory $$r $$i $$o

You must take care to enclose the path with "" if you have spaces (like 
between 'Program' and 'Files').


This variant has the advantage that you do not need to do step 1 at 
every time you install / uninstall LyX and that you can do it as a user 
if you are not administrator (i.e. if you cannot write in the Program 
Files directory, you can have elyxer somewhere in your account).

Olivier

PS: For people who wonder how one can run python while it is not 
installed on the machine, the answer is that LyX (and inkscape, ...) 
comes bundled with their own minimal python on Windows.


1- copy the elyxer.py (at least version 0.27) into LyX scripts folder, 
which should be on most machines:

C:\Program Files\LyX 1.6.4\Resources\scripts

2- in LyX, got to Tools->Preferences, then go to File

Obviously our server does not scale well with the apparent interest in the 
release. Unfortunately, this also means that we cannot access them ourselves 
at the moment, in order to upload the remaining installers.

However, the situation should improve in a few days. Also note that we have

should propagate soon to the mirrors.

In the meantime, you can grab Uwe's installer from his project site at

For this version this is not possible due to bugs in eLyXer. The main one is that eLyXer cannot

Hi,

Well, LyX 1.6.3 was released on June 4th, while 1.6.2 was released on

Usually, Uwe's Alternative installer is released few hours after the

I think the other installer installs the program somewhere in your

LyX's shortcut in the alternative installer points to a bat file, 
contains the version number in its name, and is located in a sub-folder

different, but I do not remember on which point (I think it does point
