 ok, this is definitely a qt error. even qtconfig won't launch, it

issue has been resolved! by running: ldd `which lyx` in a shell, i was
able to see that libQtCore.so.4 was loaded from /usr/local/lib instead
of /usr/lib, which suggests duplicate and wrong usage of libs.
deleting two qt-lib files residing at /usr/local/lib actually resolved
the issue. i must have missed those files when i searched for
duplicate libs yesterday. and as andre suggested it was indeed a
system install issue. most important of all, lyx is working again, i
just checked it. same goes for qt-config and smplayer :)

you guys are great. thanks a lot.

its of course waste of resources, but if nothing else helps...

OK, since we are both using Ubuntu 9.04 our ldd's should be pretty
much the same*. I have put my  my results from ldd below, what are
yours?

issue has been resolved! by running: ldd `which lyx` in a shell, i was
able to see that libQtCore.so.4 was loaded from /usr/local/lib instead
of /usr/lib, which suggests duplicate and wrong usage of libs.
deleting two qt-lib files residing at /usr/local/lib actually resolved
the issue. i must have missed those files when i searched for
duplicate libs yesterday. and as andre suggested it was indeed a
system install issue. most important of all, lyx is working again, i
just checked it. same goes for qt-config and smplayer :)

you guys are great. thanks a lot.

michael

It does seem to have something to do with Qt, but I'm not sure what.

Some people seem to have had better luck with 1.6.1, which you could 
also try.

i'll try 1.6.1 as compiling 1.6.3 wasn't too difficult

The LyX your are trying to start wants to use an older version of Qt
than the one that was used when LyX was compiled.

This may e.g. happen when you use a self-compiled recent version of Qt
to build LyX and on startup it picks up the older system version. 
Setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH apropriately helps in those cases.

for your information, when i compile lyx (either 1.6.1/2/3), i get
this info when finished:

   
Is it possible that you have two versions of Qt installed, accidentally? 
Is it possible that the Qt libraries and Qt headers are not the same?


Are you sure that you managed to completely uninstall the old LyX? You 
might try compiling LyX and then NOT installing it, but rather running 
it in place. So, after compilation finishes, type src/lyx to run it.

 andre, thx for the suggestions, but i did not compile Qt myself. it's

I am reasonably sure that the scenario you describe cannot occur
with only a single version of Qt on your system.

If you only used only packages form your distribution the only
explanation I have is that the development package you use (i.e.
libqt4-dev) does not match the installed libraries. Either there's
a difference in version of both, or you use the development package
with a set of defines that's incompatible with the the installed
version.

The latter seems actually be rather likely as qFlagLocation is
only used if QT_NO_DEBUG is _not_ set, i.e. you use the Qt in
debug mode. The system Qt is most likely not in debug mode. 

If this is the reason you need to make sure that QT_NO_DEBUG is
defined when you compile LyX. I have no idea how Ubuntu packages
the Qt development package, but I guess configuring LyX with
CXXFLAGS=-DQT_NO_DEBUG ./configure or similar might help.

Andre'

PS:

 could you please elaborate on how to use 'setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH'?
 i'm not sure that i understand what you mean.

That's only relevant for the case where you have multiple versions
of Qt on your system, so let's ignore this for now.

 i've build 1.6.1, but exactly the same error :\ ...

 andre, thx for the suggestions, but i did not compile Qt myself. it's
 the standard ubuntu qt libs.

 I am reasonably sure that the scenario you describe cannot occur
 with only a single version of Qt on your system.

 If you only used only packages form your distribution the only
 explanation I have is that the development package you use (i.e.
 libqt4-dev) does not match the installed libraries. Either there's
 a difference in version of both, or you use the development package
 with a set of defines that's incompatible with the the installed
 version.

 The latter seems actually be rather likely as qFlagLocation is
 only used if QT_NO_DEBUG is _not_ set, i.e. you use the Qt in
 debug mode. The system Qt is most likely not in debug mode.

 If this is the reason you need to make sure that QT_NO_DEBUG is
 defined when you compile LyX. I have no idea how Ubuntu packages
 the Qt development package, but I guess configuring LyX with
 CXXFLAGS=-DQT_NO_DEBUG ./configure or similar might help.

 Andre'

 PS:

 could you please elaborate on how to use 'setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH'?
 i'm not sure that i understand what you mean.

 That's only relevant for the case where you have multiple versions
 of Qt on your system, so let's ignore this for now.


only another error message...
src/lyx: symbol lookup error: src/lyx: undefined symbol:
_ZN8QPainter10drawPixmapERK7QPointFRK7QPixmap

ok, this is definitely a qt error. even qtconfig won't launch, it
gotta be qt related. but what exactly? i tried removing 
re-installing all qt packages and many others; and i wasn't able to
find duplicate qt libs, but i'm not really an expert in libs and devs.

too bad, that's gonna be a CV made with ms-office. yak... ;-)

thanks for the feedback folks

Plain LaTeX works for CVs - possibly even better than LyX as that's one

for your information, when i compile lyx (either 1.6.1/2/3), i get
this info when finished:

   
Is it possible that you have two versions of Qt installed, accidentally? 
Is it possible that the Qt libraries and Qt headers are not the same?


Are you sure that you managed to completely uninstall the old LyX? You 
might try compiling LyX and then NOT installing it, but rather running 
it in place. So, after compilation finishes, type src/lyx to run it.

i've build 1.6.1, but exactly the same error :\ ...

andre, thx for the suggestions, but i did not compile Qt myself. it's
the standard ubuntu qt libs.
could you please elaborate on how to use 'setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH'?
i'm not sure that i understand what you mean.

thank you

The LyX your are trying to start wants to use an older version of Qt
than the one that was used when LyX was compiled.

This may e.g. happen when you use a self-compiled recent version of Qt
to build LyX and on startup it picks up the older system version.
Setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH apropriately helps in those cases.

for your information, when i compile lyx (either 1.6.1/2/3), i get
this info when finished:

   
Is it possible that you have two versions of Qt installed, accidentally? 
Is it possible that the Qt libraries and Qt headers are not the same?


Are you sure that you managed to completely uninstall the old LyX? You 
might try compiling LyX and then NOT installing it, but rather running 
it "in place". So, after compilation finishes, type "src/lyx" to run it.

for your information, when i compile lyx (either 1.6.1/2/3), i get
this info when finished:

  Special build flags:   use-ispell
  C   Compiler: gcc

Configuration of LyX was successful.
Type 'make' to compile the program,
and then 'make install' to install it.



hope this helps,

I am reasonably sure that the scenario you describe cannot occur
with only a single version of Qt on your system.

If you only used only packages form your distribution the only
explanation I have is that the development package you use (i.e.
libqt4-dev) does not match the installed libraries. Either there's
a difference in version of both, or you use the development package
with a set of defines that's incompatible with the the installed
version.

The latter seems actually be rather likely as qFlagLocation is
only used if QT_NO_DEBUG is _not_ set, i.e. you use the Qt in
"debug" mode. The system Qt is most likely not in debug mode. 

If this is the reason you need to make sure that QT_NO_DEBUG is
defined when you compile LyX. I have no idea how Ubuntu packages
the Qt development package, but I guess configuring LyX with
"CXXFLAGS=-DQT_NO_DEBUG ./configure" or similar might help.

That's only relevant for the case where you have multiple versions
of Qt on your system, so let's ignore this for now.

only another error message...
src/lyx: symbol lookup error: src/lyx: undefined symbol:
_ZN8QPainter10drawPixmapERK7QPointFRK7QPixmap

ok, this is definitely a qt error. even qtconfig won't launch, it
gotta be qt related. but what exactly? i tried removing &
re-installing all qt packages and many others; and i wasn't able to
find duplicate qt libs, but i'm not really an expert in libs and devs.

too bad, that's gonna be a CV made with ms-office. yak... ;-)

thanks for the feedback folks

Something with your installation. Really.

Plain LaTeX works for CVs - possibly even better than LyX as that's one
of the rare cases where "finger painting" is acceptable. And it would
yield the same bonus point in an application as using LyX would...
