Re: cannot produce PDF from classicthesis-Lyx-v4.2_biblatex-biber in Mageia6

2017-07-31 Thread Michael Berger

Günter,

thanks for your comment and tips, I'm not giving up yet.

I experienced exactly the same in openSUSE Leap, first neither the 
bibtex-version nor the biber-version worked until all in a sudden both 
did out of the blue.


Obviously there are few people using Miede's thesis. It produces 
beautiful documents - I use it for Linguistic papers.


If successful I will revert back to you.

Cheers and thanks again.

Michael

The screenshot and it does not help. I don't have any idea about Mageia6.

But if reconfigure does not make "biber" appear, biber is not installed---at
least not in at a place where LyX can find it.


I have Mageia 6, KDE

You may try in a terminal the commands `biber --help`
and `which biber` to see whether it works and where it is installed (if it
is).
   
Ultimatively, you should look for help with someone knowing Mageia and TeX

at Mageia.

Your screenshot does not show if biber is installed.
And, if it is, we cannot see if your PATH setting is correct.

As a layman I have no idea if this info is helpfull. If it is I still

Making "biber" available in Mageia6 is not the task of LyX developers.
Maybe it is alredy available but not installed as LyX dependency, maybe it

Thanks Günter,

I did 'Reconfigure' several times. And for sure, the complete texlive 
(as offered under Mageia6) is installed. I will further check if biber 
is missing/installed on my system.

This is what I see in openSUSE Leap 42.2 and accordingly

After installing "biber", you must make LyX aware of this: open LyX and run

I should mention that in the earlier days of openSUSE Leap 42.2 neither
classicthesis-Lyx-v4.2_biblatex-bibtex8 nor
classicthesis-Lyx-v4.2_biblatex-biber did compile to PDF.

cannot produce PDF of classicthesis-Lyx-v4.2_biblatex-biber in Mageia6

2017-07-31 Thread Michael Berger

Hello,

I found that classicthesis-Lyx-v4.2_biblatex-bibtex8 compiles to PDF in 
Mageia6  whereas classicthesis-Lyx-v4.2_biblatex-biber does not.


'Documents > Settings > Bibliography > Bibliography Generation > 
Processor' is expected to show


 * Default
 * biber
 * bibtex
 * bibtex8

This is what I see in openSUSE Leap 42.2 and accordingly 
classicthesis-Lyx-v4.2_biblatex-biber produces a perfect PDF.


Whereas in Mageia6 I can only see

 * Default
 * bibtex
 * bibtex8

so, 'biber' is (still) missing and therefor (in my opinion as an 
ordinary user) no PDF output is generated.


Are the developers aware of this and will "biber" be made available in 
Mageia6 soon?
