Fwd: Help with Lyx

2014-11-12 Thread Trisha Lawrence
Hi Scott

I've currently uninstalled Lyx from my laptop. I've noticed on the
lyx-users platform a suggestion to do that as well as downloading the
following link below

http://wiki.lyx.org/Windows/LyXWinInstaller

Should this work? Would I still need to make any changes after
downloading Lyx from the link above,

like coping the layout packages from MiKTeX to LyX?

Also I can't seem to post any questions on Lyx-users platform. I'd
really appreciate your help Scott.

Kindest Regards,
Trisha Lawrence

Trisha,

The link above takes you to an installer for a very old version (2.0.5) 
of LyX. You shouldn't use it.


In your email to me this morning you told me that LyX (well, more 
exactly, the LaTeX engine that it was calling) wasn't even finding 
article.cls, which is the most basic class file, which suggests to me 
that your problem (or, at least, one very basic problem) doesn't have 
anything to do with the problem of finding missing layouts discussed in 
the link in your original message. I think your best bet, short of a 
complete reinstall of Windows, is to reinstall the latest versions of 
MikTeX and LyX. MikTeX is found here http://miktex.org/download. You 
can download the latest version (2.1.2) of LyX for Windows by clicking 
here ftp://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/bin/2.1.2/LyX-2.1.2-Installer-1.exe.


You noted that you did some sort of migration from your old laptop to 
your new one, and those are notorious (on both Macs and Windows 
machines) for screwing things up. If you have the time and the patience, 
I suspect doing a fresh install of Windows on a clean drive, followed by 
fresh installs of MikTeX and LyX would solve your problems. If that 
isn't possible, once again, give the latest versions of MikTeX and LyX a 
shot.


 Also I can't seem to post any questions on Lyx-users platform.

You seem able to now. :-)

Re: Need Help Using LyX

2014-08-07 Thread Philipp Gröne
Hi!

Jacob and Richard, thank you very much for you answers!
I just found the time to experiment a bit with LyX. I will try to
answer each of you in this mail.

@Jacob:

 Also, if you send a minimal example, it  will make it easier to help you.

I have tried to do that.

 2) The font of all entries in the table of contents should be
 identical. At the moment, the chapter- and the section titles have
 different font families in the table of content, and changing it
 manually only changes the chapter-titles in the ToC, not the
 section-titles.

 This can be done by redefining the chapter headings, and specifying the font
 in the redefinitions. To start figuring out how to do that, open your
 document template and search for where these are given. Then, start changing
 things until you get what you want :)

I do not find anything about this in the template I use. I guess they
are defined in the book.class?

 3) The font of te chapter numbers should also be identical, i.e. 12p
 and non-fat.


 Use the same method as 2).

Same as above.


 That is because the thesis template is based on book, which has three parts,
 frontmatter, mainmatter, and endmatter. By default, I think frontmatter uses
 lowercase roman numbering. You can suppress the page number with (in ERT)
 \thispagestyle{empty} For more on numbering, see the wiki:
 http://wiki.lyx.org/FAQ/Numbering

The ERT also supresses also that the ToC is shown at all. I guess
there's a reason why it is called evil.


 Reasonably easy if you have invested enough time in understanding things,
 but not nearly as easy as I (and likely many others) wish it were. Someday,
 I hope we will have a nice graphical editor that we can use to create new
 document templates (as soon as somebody decides to write one...not
 necessarily part of LyX), but right now the process of creating or modifying
 one has a bit of a learning curve.

That would be very nice. For a newby like me, it would be nice if it
would be a bit easier to distinguish between LaTeX- and LyX - issues.

@Richard:

 These are all LaTeX issues. All of these things are set by the document
 class and are not really designed to be customizable. You can change them,
 but it means learning some LaTeX and doing some work in the preamble.

Thanks for the clarification. I have no clue about LaTeX as I have
started using LyX. From my perspective it is indistinguishable if I
have a LaTeX-issue or an LyX-issue.

 For what it's worth, I'd suggest you use the basic book class. It's more
 easily customizable. What follows is for that.

Thanks for the suggestion, I've tried just that. The only issue is
that this does not give me a PDF-bookmarked ToC, but I will figure out
how to do that later.

 1) The table of contents should not have a title (i.e. Table of
 contents)


 \renewcommand\contents{}
This does not work. I have experimented a bit. The command given above
yields a LaTeX Error: \contents undefinded if I try to compile the
document.
I'm unable to overcome that issue. Even using
renewcommand\tableofcontens does not work, this yields just an empty
site instead of a ToC.

Conclusion: I do now not enough about LaTeX to mess around with this.

 2)

 \newcommand*\l@chapter[2]{%
   \ifnum \c@tocdepth \m@ne
 \addpenalty{-\@highpenalty}%
 \vskip 1.0em \@plus\p@
 \setlength\@tempdima{1.5em}%
 \begingroup
   \parindent \z@ \rightskip \@pnumwidth
   \parfillskip -\@pnumwidth
   \leavevmode \bfseries
   \advance\leftskip\@tempdima
   \hskip -\leftskip
   #1\nobreak\hfil \nobreak\hb@xt@\@pnumwidth{\hss #2}\par
   \penalty\@highpenalty
 \endgroup
   \fi}

 If you want to change them, you can copy them to your premable, change it to
 \renewcommand, and do whatever you wish.

I've tried that. I'm not able to figure out what all these commands
mean. Is there a list somewhere? Or some sort of introduction?


 I assume you mean the page (seite) with the TOC. In any event, I'm not sure
 what to do about this. Maybe someone else would know.

Sorry, yes, I meant page. I figure that is part of the
Thesis-template, if I learn enough about LaTeX to change that this
will be a chinch.

 5) There shouldnt be any page breaks, neither after the Toc nor before
 chapters.

 So perhaps something like:

 \renewcommand\chapter{\vspace*{2em}
 \global\@topnum\z@
 \@afterindentfalse
 \secdef\@chapter\@schapter}

This has actually worked out-of-the-box. Thank you very much!

I figure I will have to learn a lot about LaTeX. A quick search
revealed this LaTeX-Introduction: tobi.oetiker.ch/lshort/lshort.pdf
I guess there are many more. Any recommendations?

Greetings!

 what to do about this. Maybe someone else would know.

Sorry, yes, I meant page. I figure that is part of the
Thesis-template, if I learn enough about LaTeX to change that this
will be a chinch.

 5) There shouldnt be any page breaks, neither after the Toc nor before
 chapters.

 So perhaps something like:

 \renewcommand\chapter{\vspace*{2em}
 \global\@topnum\z@
 \@afterindentfalse
 \secdef\@chapter\@schapter}

This has actually worked out-of-the-box. Thank you very much!

I figure I will have to learn a lot about LaTeX. A quick search
revealed this LaTeX-Introduction: tobi.oetiker.ch/lshort/lshort.pdf
I guess there are many more. Any recommendations?

Hi!

Jacob and Richard, thank you very much for you answers!
I just found the time to experiment a bit with LyX. I will try to
answer each of you in this mail.

@Jacob:

I have tried to do that.

I do not find anything about this in the template I use. I guess they
are defined in the book.class?

The ERT also supresses also that the ToC is shown at all. I guess
there's a reason why it is called evil.

That would be very nice. For a newby like me, it would be nice if it
would be a bit easier to distinguish between LaTeX- and LyX - issues.

@Richard:

Thanks for the clarification. I have no clue about LaTeX as I have
started using LyX. From my perspective it is indistinguishable if I
have a LaTeX-issue or an LyX-issue.

Thanks for the suggestion, I've tried just that. The only issue is
that this does not give me a PDF-bookmarked ToC, but I will figure out
how to do that later.

>> 1) The table of contents should not have a title (i.e. "Table of

>
>
> \renewcommand\contents{}
This does not work. I have experimented a bit. The command given above
yields a "LaTeX Error: \contents undefinded" if I try to compile the
document.
I'm unable to overcome that issue. Even using
"renewcommand\tableofcontens" does not work, this yields just an empty
site instead of a ToC.

Conclusion: I do now not enough about LaTeX to mess around with this.

I've tried that. I'm not able to figure out what all these commands

Re: A little help with LyX-Sweave-R

2010-04-09 Thread phgrosjean
It's a couple of months that I prepare an alternate, complete LyX/R/Sweave
solution (for SciViews). It provides more than just the possibility to
weaving/tangling LyX documents (new styles, menu entries and toolbar
buttons to easily create various R chunks, a weaving/tangling log or
errors or warnings, Sweave features contaibned in a LyX module, etc.)

It is not completely finished, but pretty usable for now. If you like, I
have put everything in a zip file you can get from here:
http://www.sciviews.org/LyX/SciViewsLyX16.zip. Then, follow the ReadMe.txt
file included in it.

Take care: it completely replaces your whole LyX configuration! You have
to backup it first (as explained in the ReadMe.txt file).

With this version, R only converts the LyX file to .tex and LyX does the
rest like producing a DVI, PDF or PS. Also, you can produce the .Rnw file
to compile it outside of LyX (useful for packages vignettes, for
instance).

I have it also running on Mac OS X and Linux, but the files and
instructions in the link provided above are for Windows only (tested on
Windows XP sp3). Please, ask me later on for the other configs... but for
today, I don't have time to compile them.

 That menu item is greyed out, presumably because I used a converter
 through the batch file to make the PDF, so LyX wasn't really doing the
 work (and thus does not have record of the transaction?).

 Can someone help me figure out why texi2dvi fails to produce a PDF?
 Does anyone know if it is perhaps something about MiKTeX and the way
 the texi2dvi.exe works? Might it be possible to bypass that program
 and do the conversion via LyX more directly after R finishes the
 Sweaving and Stangling?

 Did you try pdflatex, or ps2pdf?

 Yeah, pdflatex works a charm when called on the tex file resulting
 from Sweaving directly from the command line. That's what I was
 getting at here. It seems like the issue is in R's function texi2dvi
 (which calls MiKTeX's texi2dvi.exe to do the work), so I was hoping
 there was some way to let the converter in LyX run the batch file,
 pass the Sweaving/Stangling and TeX file production off to R, then
 come back and run pdflatex out of LyX to get the PDF from the TeX
 file. Surely this is possible?


 Thanks a million for the help!

Re: A little help with LyX-Sweave-R

2010-04-09 Thread David Hewitt
Man, this will be awesome. To clarify, Prof. Grosjean, can you
indicate what specific connection this will require with SciViews? I
use Tinn-R for code editing, but my workflow with LyX-R-Sweave
requires no editor. Would the same be true for what you are
developing?

Lastly, I think I may have discovered part of the problem. Perhaps
someone on this list is familiar enough with LaTeX config in MiKTeX in
Windows to sort it out for me. It might be related to having some
MiKTeX packages as All Users that are installed and updated with
Admin privileges and others that are specific to my own account. I get
a Windows API Error if I run texify.exe on a file:

Windows API error 14001: This application has failed to start because the
application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application
may fix this problem.
texify: Data: C:\Documents and Settings\dhewitt\Application
Data\MiKTeX\2.8\miktex\bin\pdflatex.EXE

But if I run pdflatex.exe (which I believe calls the EXE in C:\Program
Files\MiKTeX 2.8\miktex\bin) on the same file, it all works.

In general, I don't understand the details of pdflatex, texify,
texi2dvi, etc. that are used in the processing, and how they relate to
each other. If I did, I could probably troubleshoot this more easily.

A little help with LyX-Sweave-R

2010-04-08 Thread David Hewitt
This is a bit of a tangent from true LyX issues, but it is related and
I suspect the expertise exists on this list to solve my problem. I
appreciate any help. For those also on the R-Help mailing list, I
apologize for the duplication.

I use LyX on a Windows XP machine with R 2.10.1 and a recent
installation of MiKTeX 2.8. I followed Jeff Laake's instructions on
the LyX Wiki (which I recently posted! --
http://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/LyxWithRThroughSweave) and had things all set
up to run Sweave and Stangle and then make the PDF through R (though a
batch script called from LyX then on to a MakeSweave.R file that does
the work through R). All of this system worked just fine until I ran
some MiKTeX updates yesterday.

After the updates yesterday, which I noticed included the miktex core
stuff, everything goes smoothly except that the code in the
MakeSweave.R file that runs texi2dvi (an R function that calls the
MiKTeX-distributed texi2dvi.exe to do the work) seems not to produce a
PDF but gives no warnings or errors.

The contents of the batch file are:

Rterm --no-site-file --no-save -f C:/Program Files/LyX
1.6.5/bin/MakeSweave.R --args %1

The batch file is called in the temporary directory where LyX does its work,

The MakeSweave.R contents are:

library(tools)
args - commandArgs()
filename - args[length(args)]
Sweave(filename)
Stangle(filename)
basename - sub(\\.(Rnw|Rtex|nw)$, , filename)
texi2dvi(paste(basename, .tex, sep=), pdf=TRUE)

I run LyX from a command window and watch what goes on in the
background. All goes fine through the whole process, texi2dvi runs and
finishes (and I can confirm that it finds and executes texi2dvi.exe in
the MiKTeX bin), and then LyX pukes an error that it cannot open the
PDF because the PDF does not exist. Indeed, if I check the temp

Does anyone know if it is perhaps something about MiKTeX and the way
the texi2dvi.exe works? Might it be possible to bypass that program
and do the conversion via LyX more directly after R finishes the
Sweaving and Stangling?

A potential complication (as always) is that I am working in a
non-Admin account on the machine. I can invoke Admin permissions to
change things and had managed to get everything working before.
Permissions may be an issue, but I have set full access to all the
folders involved in this process (R, LyX, MiKTeX bins for example),
and this got it working prior to updates. I am hoping that is not it.
It seems like an issue with texi2dvi.

 A potential complication (as always) is that I am working in a
 non-Admin account on the machine. I can invoke Admin permissions to
 change things and had managed to get everything working before.
 Permissions may be an issue, but I have set full access to all the
 folders involved in this process (R, LyX, MiKTeX bins for example),
 and this got it working prior to updates. I am hoping that is not it.
 It seems like an issue with texi2dvi.

Re: A little help with LyX-Sweave-R

2010-04-08 Thread David Hewitt
 I run LyX from a command window and watch what goes on in the
 background. All goes fine through the whole process, texi2dvi runs and
 finishes (and I can confirm that it finds and executes texi2dvi.exe in
 the MiKTeX bin), and then LyX pukes an error that it cannot open the
 PDF because the PDF does not exist. Indeed, if I check the temp
 directory
 for LyX, all files are present but the PDF. I get no other warnings or
 errors from texi2dvi and cannot figure out why this happens.

 Did you look at Document  LaTeX log? Sometimes it will display errors
 that are not popped-up by LyX.

That menu item is greyed out, presumably because I used a converter
through the batch file to make the PDF, so LyX wasn't really doing the
work (and thus does not have record of the transaction?).

 Can someone help me figure out why texi2dvi fails to produce a PDF?
 Does anyone know if it is perhaps something about MiKTeX and the way
 the texi2dvi.exe works? Might it be possible to bypass that program
 and do the conversion via LyX more directly after R finishes the
 Sweaving and Stangling?

 Did you try pdflatex, or ps2pdf?

Yeah, pdflatex works a charm when called on the tex file resulting
from Sweaving directly from the command line. That's what I was
getting at here. It seems like the issue is in R's function texi2dvi
(which calls MiKTeX's texi2dvi.exe to do the work), so I was hoping
there was some way to let the converter in LyX run the batch file,
pass the Sweaving/Stangling and TeX file production off to R, then
come back and run pdflatex out of LyX to get the PDF from the TeX
file. Surely this is possible?


Thanks a million for the help!


A little help with LyX-Sweave-R

2010-04-08 Thread David Hewitt
This is a bit of a tangent from true LyX issues, but it is related and
I suspect the expertise exists on this list to solve my problem. I
appreciate any help. For those also on the R-Help mailing list, I
apologize for the duplication.

I use LyX on a Windows XP machine with R 2.10.1 and a recent
installation of MiKTeX 2.8. I followed Jeff Laake's instructions on
the LyX Wiki (which I recently posted! --
http://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/LyxWithRThroughSweave) and had things all set
up to run Sweave and Stangle and then make the PDF through R (though a
batch script called from LyX then on to a MakeSweave.R file that does
the work through R). All of this system worked just fine until I ran
some MiKTeX updates yesterday.

After the updates yesterday, which I noticed included the miktex core
stuff, everything goes smoothly except that the code in the
MakeSweave.R file that runs texi2dvi (an R function that calls the
MiKTeX-distributed texi2dvi.exe to do the work) seems not to produce a
PDF but gives no warnings or errors.

The contents of the batch file are:

Rterm --no-site-file --no-save -f C:/Program Files/LyX
1.6.5/bin/MakeSweave.R --args %1

The batch file is called in the temporary directory where LyX does its work,

The MakeSweave.R contents are:

library(tools)
args - commandArgs()
filename - args[length(args)]
Sweave(filename)
Stangle(filename)
basename - sub(\\.(Rnw|Rtex|nw)$, , filename)
texi2dvi(paste(basename, .tex, sep=), pdf=TRUE)

I run LyX from a command window and watch what goes on in the
background. All goes fine through the whole process, texi2dvi runs and
finishes (and I can confirm that it finds and executes texi2dvi.exe in

This may be a folder encrypted by External HDD itself. I am wondering
whether these files on DVD are copied under Vista (probably
unencrypted) or under Windows. It would be nice to look into files to
check whether are they text files or scrambled binary.

Hi rh,

Attached is a sample file done in the Windows version of LyX. I cannot 
open this file in LyX 1.6.2 installed on my Linux Mint 7 Gloria system

all with the same result.


Please let me know what you find.

Well, if I save it to /tmp/, it opens up just fine, so that didn't tell 
us very much.


I think the issue is certainly the one pointed out by Paul and Manervu: 
The document is encrypted in some way, but LyX is not getting a 
decrypted version. The only way you can get that message is if the first 
non-comment line of the file isn't "\lyxformat ...", which it certainly 
would be.


Try copying the file to your home directory and opening it from there. 
If that does not work, open a terminal and run "cat myfile.lyx". If you 
don't see something like this:


#LyX 1.6.3 created this file. For more info see http://www.lyx.org/
\lyxformat 345
\begin_document
\begin_header

and in particular if you get jumbled garbage, then we've found the problem.

That said, the fact that I could open the file you sent me suggests that 
copying your LyX files to your home directory may be all you need to do.

Help needed: LyX files Win-Linux Mint Gloria 7

2009-08-27 Thread KR Thorne
Hello,
 
I created a number of files in LyX under Windows Vista, saved in .lyx format. I 
have just migrated over to Linux Mint Gloria 7, and now my files will not open. 
I receive an error message:
 

/media/FreeAgent Drive/Encryption Folder/Seagate
Backup/KRT-PC/C/Users/KRT/Documents/Writing/GTG_TWI_newedit_test.lyx is not a 
readable LyX document.

I also tried the files I had copied to a data DVD, but cannot open them either.
 
Both the Windows Lyx and the Linux LyX are the latest release, 1.6.2.
 
This is extremely important, as these are manuscripts representing several 
years of work. At present I cannot simply open them in Windows, as my Windows 
installation was not working and the recovery disks are unsuccessful (ticket 
open with the laptop mfr).
 
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
 
Thanks,
Karen

Hi all

dictionary settings. Basically, whenever I tell the dictionary to add a new
word (eg 'dopant') it remembers the word for the duration of that
spellcheck,
but silently fails to add the word to the personal dictionary file, so the

I am using the LyXWinInstaller version of LyX 1.5.6, and the Preferences

specified a file path for my personal dictionary, but the file remains
empty.

I have installed the aspell6-en-6.0-0 and aspell6-uk-1.4.0-0 dictionary

and these have sent files to ApplicationData in my profile. I am set up
using
a roaming profile, but I have set LyX to save documents and my personal
dictionary to a folder in my (out-of-profile) C:\ directory.

Any tips on how to debug this problem? Can I do something to make LyX tell
me when it's failed to save my personal dictionary, and why it might have
failed?

I had this problem with LyX 1.5.6 (without the roaming profile issue), 
and I can't recall what the cause was, because there were a couple of 
Aspell issues going on concurrently.  One was whether Aspell (the copy 
used by LyX) and its dictionaries were both installed the same way -- 
sometimes one is installed for a single user and the other for all 
users, which is a different directory tree -- and the other was that I 
had a full installation of Aspell left over from an earlier version of 
LyX, and earlier versions required that it be installed in C:\Aspell. 
What worked for me was to leave the full version in C:\Aspell alone, add 
a subdirectory C:\Aspell\Personal, and in Tools  Preferences...  
Language Settings  Spellchecker set the path to the personal dictionary 
to C:\Aspell\Personal\en.pws.

I just tried this with 1.6rc2.  The problem persists there (on Mac).

Hi James -

I don't see this problem running 1.6rc2 on Ubuntu 8.04 (and I agree - that
new inline completion is really nifty).

You can use the listings LaTeX package : it has automatic breaking of 
long lines, and it is fully integrated in LyX.

help with LyX-Code (or verbatim in ERT) and wrapping

2007-12-16 Thread Stacia Hartleben
Hi guys. I am finishing up a paper for my algorithms class and I ran
into a little snag when it comes to displaying code and wrapping.

1. Sometimes very long lines are simply cut off (!) Take for example
this long output of a sorting algorithm: (100   100   100   98   96
95   95   92   91   91   83   83   80   79   78   78   75   73   73
66   64   62   60   57   56   55   53   52   44   43   43   40   39
38   37   36   34   32   28   28   27   26   5   4   4   4   4   3   1
  1). That goes way off the screen never to be seen again.
2. I was having some problems with things hyphenating, rendering the
actual code displayed useless. I seem to have fixed them by making the
font really small but I suspect they would pop up again if I made the
font big again, so sorry I don't have an example.

Any pointers?

Help Please! Lyx 1.4.3 for windows Crashes after installation

2006-12-07 Thread Wei Yan
Hello All,
I have been trying to install Lyx1.4.3 (released Oct 4)  for windows for the 
last two days, unfortunately after more than five attempts (install, uninstall, 
reinstall) I still cannot launch Lyx application successfully. Here are my 
installation steps:
- downloaded lyx-143-4-bundle.exe
- followed installation instructions
- updated Miktex
- ATTEMPTED to launch Lyx for the first time
then each time I get an error message  Lyx has been closed because of an 
unexpected situation. This is most likely caused by a flaw in the software. 
When you open your documents again, you will be able to restore an emergency 
save and continue working. 
The details about the error are  WindowsError: [Error 2] The system cannot 
find the path specified: 'C\\winnt\\sy...
Lyx:Done!
LyxTextClassList::Read:unable to find textclass file `'. Exiting. 

I used to have Lyx1.3.7 installed it worked fine.

Thanks so much for your help!!!

Wei

Help regarding lyx

2006-06-07 Thread pramod salunkhe
Dear Sir

I am using lyx from last 2 months. I found It is very useful for report writing.
I have few doubts about it. Could you please clear it?

1. Recently I loaded Lyx 1.3.7. In that it is not showing pdf viewer. The error 
is No information for viewing pdf.

2. In the figure caption I want lyx to write FIG instead of Figure before 
the capion starts.

3.Suppose I have started to write a report in lyx. On the first page of lyx I 
want the page No. of 23. How can I do this?

Waiting for your reply.

Thank you

Yours Sincerely

Pramod
