RE: using ACM SIGGRAPH layout

2008-12-10 Thread Brian Guenter
Any progress on getting this to work properly? I'm happy to be a guinea pig 
because I'm going to be submitting a paper to the SIGGRAPH conference at the 
end of January. I'm highly motivated to make this work.

LyX didn't yet have a layout file for acmsiggraph, but I now created one. You

RE: using ACM SIGGRAPH layout

2008-12-01 Thread Brian Guenter
I followed the instructions on http://wiki.lyx.org/Examples/AcmSiggraph: 
downloaded the latest acmsiggraph latex files and installed them in Miktex, and 
copied the acmsiggraph.layout file into the lyx layouts direct, ran reconfigure.

Now a new document class shows up article (ACM SIGGRAPH). When I set this as 
my document type and try to view the output, using either pdf or dvi, I get the 
following latex error messages:

Errors:

Undefined control sequence.
You can't use '\relax' after \the
Undefined control sequence.
You can't use '\relax' after \the


Description:

\bibitem{Goldstein}

The control sequence at the end of the top line
of your error message was never \def'ed. If you have
misspelled it (e.g., '\hobx'), type 'I' and the correct
speelling (e.g., 'I\hbox'). Otherwise just continue,
and I'll forget about whatever was defined.




No pdf or dvi file ever gets generated.

If I use the article document class then everything works fine, including the 
bibliography. Of course then it's not in the format I want.

First, are you sure it does not says Unavailable:ACM SIGPLAN? Anyway, you
