 Sounds like some sort of lyx2lyx conversion error. If you can run LyX 
 from a terminal, you should get more error messages, though that won't 
 solve the problem by itself. So, alternatively, try posting one of the 
 problematic files here, or sending it to me privately, if you prefer, 
 and we can try to figure it out.

I get the same problem after upgrading to LyX 2.0.7 (I'm not sure from which 
version), when trying to open files that I had been using daily. I have 
tried re-installing 2.0.7 as well as using version 1.6.10, but the same 
error appears. What do you suggest, is there a way to access other LyX 
versions?

Thanks, David

No, I cannot create such files anymore. But it is easy to fake it. Just remove 
the trailing line feed
of a file created by 2.0.x and try to read with 2.1.x.

Hi,


I had similar (i can't remember exact error message but it was it was
closely related) error around of two weeks ago but instead of upgrading
it occurred after unexpected power loss.

Following steps help me to use corrupted files again:

   1. Locate working directory
   2. Instead of your main project file e.g. filename.lyx locate and open
   filename.lyx~ with Lyx (you have to point location of Lyx binary,
   alternatively you can open this file via Lyx file menu  open but on this
   case first you should insert *.* as file name to make all file types
   visible for Lyx)
   3. Save result as new project e.g new.lyx (it is just good practice to
   keep recovery and original files separated)
   4. After manual check of content of file you can rename new.lyx back to
   filename.lyx

I am using Win 7 x 64 Lyx 2.0.3

No, I cannot create such files anymore. But it is easy to fake it. Just remove 
the trailing line feed
of a file created by 2.0.x and try to read with 2.1.x.
(Opening this file with 2.0.x will work, since no conversion needed)

Hi,


I had similar (i can't remember exact error message but it was it was
closely related) error around of two weeks ago but instead of upgrading
it occurred after unexpected power loss.

Following steps help me to use corrupted files again:

   1. Locate working directory
   2. Instead of your main project file e.g. filename.lyx locate and open
   filename.lyx~ with Lyx (you have to point location of Lyx binary,
   alternatively you can open this file via Lyx file menu > open but on this
   case first you should insert *.* as file name to make all file types
   visible for Lyx)
   3. Save result as new project e.g new.lyx (it is just good practice to
   keep recovery and original files separated)
   4. After manual check of content of file you can rename new.lyx back to
   filename.lyx

I am using Win 7 x 64 Lyx 2.0.3

Br,
Indrek

I tried and didn't get the error which was reported by John
(instead I correctly see  Buffer .. ended unexpectedly, which means that it is 
probably corrupted.)
Do you have reproducible behaviour how you get such eoln-missing files?

Sorry, no. It occurred as I wanted to edit some of my old lyx files. I changed 
them in the meantime.

Can't open files in 2.0.3 (Buffer_convertLyxFormat.hXXXX is not a readable Lyx Document)

2012-04-23 Thread John Enright
Since upgrading to 2.0.3, Many of my files will not open. I get an error message
during the open operation saying:

C:\Users\myusername\AppData\Local\Temp\lyx_tmpdir.p10476
\Buffer_convertLyxFormat.h is not a readable LyX document.

The temp directory exits (as specified in the message); the temp file is
zero-bytes long.

- I'm running Win7 (x64). My MikTex is up to date. I've reinstalled LyX several
times (including uninstalling it). No difference. 

- Some old files will open. But many will not. Not sure of what is special about
the affected files. Perhaps some particular floats, but I can't seem to
replicate the problem with a new file.

- I can create and reopen a completely new file. 

- The affected files are not corrupted, since they open just fine in LyX 1.6.X
that I still had installed. 

Any thoughts?

Cheers,

John

Sounds like some sort of lyx2lyx conversion error. If you can run LyX 
from a terminal, you should get more error messages, though that won't 
solve the problem by itself. So, alternatively, try posting one of the 
problematic files here, or sending it to me privately, if you prefer, 
and we can try to figure it out.

Is there some magic to get the debug output from the command line? I run:

lyx -dbg

or

lyx -dbg graphics

and get no additional output. Is this logged to a file somewhere?

BTW, I have verified that I can make the problem disappear by rolling 
back to 2.0.2 (well, uninstalling 2.0.3, and then installing 2.0.2).

I experienced something similar when converting some files created on windows.
It turned out, that the last line ended with \end_document but was not 
terminated by eol.
Inserting a new line in such lyx-file with a text editor helped.
