Elisabeth,

I am copying the user list to keep the discussion there (since the list 
is archived, and in the hopes a Windows user will chime in -- like 
Scott, I use Linux).


Three possibilities come to mind. I suggest checking them in the order I 
list them. The first is that the MiKTeX bundle did not install for some 
reason. You can test that by checking that there are folders for it and 
that article.cls is in one of them. While you are at it, you should note 
down the location of latex.exe and pdflatex.exe. If the files are 
missing, I suggest downloading a MiKTeX installer from the MiKTeX web site.


The second is that MiKTeX is installed but did not make it onto your 
system command path (meaning the system cannot find it when the time 
comes to use it). Try running |echo %PATH%| from a command prompt and 
see if the path to the .exe files appears there. If not, you can edit 
your path to add the missing directories (see, for instance, 
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/23400030/windows-7-add-path), or you 
can just reinstall MiKTeX as in the previous paragraph.


The third (and in my mind least likely) possibility is that MiKTeX is 
installed, but with the wrong permissions, so that perhaps only a 
"superuser" can run it. This would require that you be logged in with a 
user account that does not have "superuser" privileges. That can happen 
in some cases where the computer belongs to your employer and the 
employer's IT group does not give the user full rights to the machine. 
I've been off Windows too long to remember how to fix that, but in all 
likelihood it would require the involvement of someone from IT who does 
have superuser rights.


I hope that helps.

Paul

Elisabeth,

As a first check, please open a command shell and run the command 
'kpsewhich article.cls' (without the quotes). It should respond with the 
path to the basic article class in your MiKTeX installation. If it just 
returns to the command prompt with no output, that will indicate a 
problem with MiKTeX.

OK please keep the discussion on the list then (because I do not know
how to debug for Windows). I would consider user an older version until
2.2.2 is released (in a few weeks) and then trying that version, which
contains many bug fixes.

I CC Uwe, our main developer on Windows. He is very busy but might have
some advice for how you should proceed.

Hi Elisabeth,

I'm sorry for the trouble. That sounds very frustrating! We will release
2.2.2 soon (a matter of weeks). You might want to try that, but I'm not
sure if it will help. Another thing you might consider is installing LyX

You might report the bug to OpenSUSE. It is possible it's a packaging
issue, which of course we don't control. The fact that you could
manaually reconfigure means there was probably an earlier
reconfiguration that was done at the wrong time: possibly before LaTeX
had been installed.

The code you show above creates a class equivalent to the default

Thank you for the suggestion. This solves the first problem, namely the

abstract and the keywords do not show in the output PDF file. Any further hints 
on that?

Also, is there a tutorial on how to write a  layout file like what you

Lyx but a general Tex topic - for some cls files a simple article-type of

Usually you take an existing working layout example as close to what
you need, try to understand its syntax by looking at the reference
manual, then try to modify as you think would yield useful results.

Add the following to your layout file:

Style Abstract
   Intitle 1
End

In your .lyx file, skip the "From: somewhere on earth" part.
What is it supposed to be? Your affiliation?

The Title, Author, Keyword and Abstract paragraphs should be consecutive
(without anything else in between). This is because, together, they form
the complete title of the document.

Hope this helps. I do not have time to delve more deeply in sagej layout
file definition, unfortunately.

JMarc

Yes! Problem solved. Thanks a million!
The "From:.." was indeed the affiliation. It doesn't work if I use the 
"Address" item in the layout drop-down menu for the affiliation. Instead, I 
used Tex code in the "Author" section to add affiliation and correspondence 
author information and it works perfect. As you said, it seems nothing can be 
put between Title, Author, Abstract, and Keywords (although I don't know why 
there is the "Address" option there in the drop-down menu available for the 
user).
Thanks again. It looks I need to better understand how to write a layout file 
if I get similar problems in the future for other document classes.

Question - all document classes gone

2014-10-26 Thread Kopf, Sebastian
Dear all,

Unfortunately almost all document classes are gone in Lyx including natbib. In 
the past, I installed some additional classes e.g. Springer SV global V3, which 
are gone in LYX too even the files are still available in the folder  (e.g. 
usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/tex/latex/local). 
Lyx version 2.12 and MacTex is uptodate including all updates. MacOsX is 
Yosemite. I noticed that „Reconfigure“ is way quicker after this bug came. 
„Texhash“ and $ sudo -H mktexlsr“ did not help either.

Any idea?

Thank you very much in advance,

Sebastian

Can you please report the bug to Apple (and let us know what they say)?

A workaround is being worked on in LyX and should be out somewhat
soon. The might be an experimental build available if you are willing
to test it.

Hi Cee Van,

This is because LyX is not finding your LaTeX installation, which can
occur because a LaTeX installation does not exist or because, for
example, there are PATH issues. Please explain exactly how you
installed LyX, what your OS is, and any other relevant details.

Did you have MikTeX installed before? I believe the usual suggestion

again.

No problem, Carsten. You can either email the list directly (to:) or

No problem, Carsten. You can either email the list directly (to:) or
put it in CC. It is optional to CC the other persons in the
conversation. I usually do that when I suspect they're not on the
list.

OK try the uninstall/reinstall. That's usually the advice I see Uwe
give (the main developer of the LyX installer for Windows).

LyX Cant See the Document Classes

2013-08-07 Thread Yannis Tsoumpas
Dear Sir/Madame,

I have downloaded and installed the LyX-2.0.6 on my Windows 7 on which I had 
already installed the MikTex 2.8. When i open the application a
 window pops up that no article class is found and in fact I face the same 
issue with any kind of document class I need to use.

When i look at tools-tex info it shows
 all class files (i.e. it knows where the miktex installation is, at 
least in some respect).

I tried to find a solution on the web and although a bunch of people is facing 
a similar problem I could not trace a satisfactory solution. Thus, I would be 
grateful if you could advice me on what I should do.

Looking forward to hear back from you.

Best Regards,
Yannis

Documentation for LaTeX document classes included in the TeX Live distributablebution

I vaguely recall encountering somewhere on my system pdf manuals for the

to their location would be greatly appreciated. I'm on a Mac, with OS X 1.6.8, 
in case that matters.

Hard to tell. What OS? What class are you using? Has it been working

All document classes are unavailable......

2011-02-22 Thread Charlie

Using LyX version 2.0.0beta4
(Monday, 7 February 2011)

On Debian testing on two systems. On one, the latest upgraded system,
all the document classes are unavailable without exception.

Yet the document classes that are said to be absent are all present.
I cannot access the /usr/share/texmf file. It gives me an error message
that I don't have permission to read that directory. Transferring it to
my home directory and changing the permissions and access so I can read
it, makes no difference.

This after texhashing and reconfiguring and jumping through all manner
of hoops, including uninstalling and reinstalling LyX.

This system, which I won't upgrade at the moment because of the problem
with the other, has all document classes available, but hasn't been
upgraded for some days, mainly because an upgrade will remove texlive.

Just a heads up for other users. I assume it will be fixed by an
upgrade in the future.

Be well,
Charlie

After starting LyX, check Help  About LyX and note the user directory

All document classes unavailable

2010-06-09 Thread Kortink, Mark A
Hi

I am a reasonably experienced LyX user. I have installed MiKTex 2.4 and LyX 1.6 
on a new laptop running Windows XP with SP3. LyX works perfectly on my old 
laptop which is identical. When I install LyX it installs smoothly except it 
cannot find the aspell6-en dictionary so I have to skip that step. When I start 
LyX all document classes are marked as unavailable, but if I select one I get 
the message that it is not usable and a class or style file may not be 
available. I have tried the obvious and not so obvious stuff like:-
- Tools Reconfigure.
- Run configure.py, LaTeX found.
- Run kpsewhich, finds article.cls.
- Check textclass.lst, all false.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled both MikTex and Lyx several times, even 
tried several different versions of each.

How do I get LyX to see all the standard document classes, and as an aside, the 
spell checker to install without error?

Mark

[help]: lyx 1.6.5: document classes not configured

2010-02-23 Thread franck.meyer
Hi,

I have installed Lyx 1.6.5 on 2 computers (both on Windows xp). The
first one was with an old Miktex 2.7 and I have no problem.

The second one, my laptop, didn't have latex so I installed miktex 2.8
(complete version) first.
Then I have installed Lyx 1..6.5 but I had a problem: all the layouts
are not recognized so I can't view neither print documents (document
class not available says Lyx when loading the file)
When I look at the texclass.lst, all layouts seem to be set at false.

I 've just tried to desinstall Miktek and Lyx, and to reinstall (first
Miktex then Lyx as previously): but I still have the same problem (and
the same texclass.lst, see attached file).
When I use Texworks (installed with Miktex) on a short example the
layouts (book, article) seem to work and Texworks generates the pdf, so
Miktex doesn't seem to be the problem?

What's wrong with my installation?

Thanks in advance,
Frank. textclass.lst

Most likely, LyX could not find Miktex at the time LyX configured itself.

If things have changed, just do a Tools-Reconfigure in LyX, and it 
might fix itself. If it still doesn't find anything, check that

the miktex executables is in the PATH. (LyX does not try to find it
anywhere else.)

Test:
Open a cmd.exe window, try a command like pdflatex. If that fails, you 
have found the problem. Correct the PATH so it includes whatever folder 
the miktex program files resides in. Then, restart LyX and do the

Tools-Reconfigure. Restart LyX again, and it ought to work.

It is important that you have an open Internet connection when 
installing LyX. This assures that all LaTeX text classes are installed.


The easiest way to fix your problem would be to

- uninstall LyX _completely_
- uninstall MiKTeX _completely_
- uninstall Aspell and its dictionaries (if this program was installed)
- open an Internet connection
- reinstall LyX using the complete version of this installer:
http://wiki.lyx.org/Windows/LyXWinInstaller
- (drink a coffee or make a break because the installation process will 
take several minutes)


This will automatically installs MiKTeX and all other third-party 
programs needed by LyX (spell checker, image converter, etc.)

Thanks for your answer.
I am behind a firewall but the installation of Lyx on my desktop computer (also 
behind the firewall) was OK: I had just to install after manually the 
dictionaries.
I will try this evening at home, without firewall, but it seems to be another 
problem (otherwise my desktop installation wouldn't work).

Currently (at my office), I've just retried but I have the same problem.
I have attached the (French, sorry) error message...
Same symptom in the texclass.lst: all layouts set to false.

This means that MiKTeX was not correctly installed. As I wrote, the 
safest way is to use inly the LyX installer, that automatically installs 
MiKTeX for you and also does the configuration for you.


NOTE, you must have Admin permissions for a proper installation.
