XeTeX - Load packages before fontspec

2011-10-01 Thread Spyros Stathopoulos
Hello everyone! I've been using TeX for quite a long time now but I'm new to LyX. I've managed to create some fairly long documents with it and XeTeX and I'm quite happy, however there is one little thing that troubles me. A lot of regular LaTeX packages that affect fonts need to be loaded before

Does the same happens if you use \setmainfont[Mapping=tex-text]{Linux Libertine} in your preamble and leave the fonts to default in the document settings? Also, does fc-list|grep Libertine|grep Regular returns something like Linux Libertine O:style=Regular Linux Libertine Display:style=Regular

Well, there is no doubt that math typesetting and float tracking is considerably more robust in TeX, no need to argue about that. The main problem I am constantly encountering when I try to convert people in TeX is the fact that people get easily discouraged by the steep learning curve. And it

I think the problem is that LyX does not copy the ../common/preamble.tex file over at the temporary build directory (usually something like /tmp/lyx_tmpdir./lyx_tmpbufX/ by default). I have encountered this kind of behavior before (albeit in a different case) but I could not find any

The problem is not with pgfplots but with the data file. It seems that LyX cannot reference files that are mentioned in ERT using relative paths. It arises because LyX does not copy the required file over at the temporary build directory, since ERT code is injected verbatim to the produced TeX
