What are the main evolutions from Bundle and Installer 4 to 5 ?


There was a bug in the installer so that existing 64bit MiKTeX 
installations were not detected.


Meanwhile I released version 6:
http://ftp.lyx.de/LyXWinInstaller/LyX2.3.0/
that has improvements for users installing LyX the first time on a PC. 
There were some bugs in the MiKTeX installer that are now fixed. The LyX 
bundle installer bundles this new installer.


Users having already LyX 2.3.0 installer can ignore this new installer 
version.

OK, so you didn't update MiKTeX manually.

I don't know if Miktex was really broken, but LyX was no more able to 
launch the compilation of the documents. Then, as I wrote you, a Miktex 
update failed and it is only later that on the Miktex console I have 
seen that there was proposed a list of packages to be installed with one 
package inside. After the installation of this package LyX (2.2.3 and 
2.3) were both able to compile again documents.

Presently all seems to work fine.


OK, then the problem I detected yesterday seem to exist since Monday on 
some mirror servers (I'll check right now if this is now fixed and 
report back). MiKTeX must be updated to be able to work with it, but the 
update failed because the main package containing the info of all other 
MiKTeX packages appeared recently truncated on the MiKTeX mirror servers.
Since you had a state of MiKTeX with the new MiKTeX console, it means 
that the update was partially successful. When I launch in this state 
the MiKTeX console manually and force another update run, I get MiKTeX 
fixed. And this is what you did too.
So my analysis is that the LyX installer could force the update to the 
MiKTeX console but the packages and, more important, the links to the 
packages could not be updated by the MiKTeX console because of the 
truncated package info.


In my opinion you should  concentrate on the reason of the presence in 
bundle3 of this dialog window with only an "OK button" to click as 
possible answer as we should be in position to decline the proposition 
to update Miktex


In this case we must force an update. You observed what happens if this 
is not performed or incomplete - MiKTeX can be broken.
The MiKTeX package handling changed and the different programs to 
install and maintain packages do no longer exist. They were replaced by 
the MiKTeX Console. Therefore we must find a way that users of older 
MiKTeX get the console because if they do this by themselves (e.g. by 
installing a new package or in same cases by reconfiguring LyX) a bug in 
MiKTeX can cause LaTeX to break completely.

This is what I don't understand. How could you decide to let the update 
run on your own?


I realize now that you installed LyX 2.3.0 the first time using version 
1 of the LyX installer. This can explain the problems you saw. I tested 
this now but cannot reproduce.


Could you please maybe do me the favor and
- uninstall LyX and MiKTeX _completely_
- reinstall LyX using the 2.3.0 RC1/ installer (if you still have it on 
your PC)

- install LyX 2.3.0 over it using the version 3 installer.

I finally manage later to recover a working Miktex via the installation 
of a new package.


This what i also don't understand. if MiKTeX is broken, you can try 
whatever you want. Updates cannot be installed and a package 
installation doesn't repair MiKTeX. There must have happened something 
else. Because when a package update succeeds and you can use LyX 
afterwards, then it could only happen that the package file name 
database was incomplete.

However, I cannot reproduce this.
Meanwhile MiKTeX released 3 important bugfixes to its package handling 
system. I hope that they are available tomorrow for all users.

No problem, everything is fine now. All you have to do is to install LyX

After you installed LyX MiKTeX works fine as it should and you will get

Yes, because otherwise you can get this:

I have no idea what has been updated, but what's for sure is that the 
compilations with LyX don't work anymore now ! (messsage : pdflatex 
program ended with error).


There is a bug in MiKTeX that causes to break LaTeX completely in some 
cases. The new Win installer includes a workaround from the MiKTeX 
developer.


Installing LyX again using the new installer should fix your broken MiKTeX

However, I asked you to check if you get a virus warning when installing 
only MiKTeX? If yes, this could explain the false positive for the LyX 
installer because the bundle installer extracts the mikxtex installer 
even if miktex doesn't need to be installed. (The miktex installer will 
unnecessary deleted afterwards.)

This cannot be. The bundle installer does exactly the same as the small 
installer. Only if no LaTeX is found it installs MiKTeX. Since you had 
MiKTeX installed there cannot be a difference. The configuration of 
MiKTeX is always the same.

We cannot do anything if virus programs detect false positives.

I always use the bundle version of LyX for my installations (...LyX2.2.2,
LyX2.2.3, LyX2.3 RC1, LyX2.3RC2, LyX2.3) together with a local version of
Miktex and it is the first time I have this kind of problem.

This sounds not good. The problematic is this:
MiKTeX released a new version that changes the whole package handling. 
There are now 3 cases:
A: if you have MiKTeX already installed and have not yet updated MiKTeX, 
LyX will fail to setup MiKTeX because it uses the new package handling 
infrastructure.
B: if you have MiKTeX already installed and run the update wizard of 
MiKTeX once, LyX will fail too because two update steps of MikTeX are 
necessary: first to update the update wizard and second one to use it to 
update MiKTeX's main files.
C: you already run MikTeX's update wizard at least once before using the 
LyX installer or you install MiKTeX together with LyX. Then LyX will 
perform the second update run for you and LyX is already prepared for 
MikTeX's new package handling.


I am still thinking about a clever solution. Maybe I should change the 
installer so that it runs the MiKTeX update twice if necessary. I tend 
to do this but this requires time for testing I don't have right now.
If you don't like to wait, uninstall MiKTeX and use the bundle installer 
of LyX 2.3.0 to install MiKTeX right before LyX.


Any suggesting for a proper solution is welcome.

Scott, I tend to delay the public announce for LyX on Windows for some days.

Thanks for your help in trying to figure out what's going on,  Emile.
Reading your previous message, you are using the bundle to install,
right? Do you have the same problem if you use the installer? I'm not so
surprised that the bundle could mess something up if you already have a
MikTeX installation. But if just using the non-bundle installer messes
something up, that would be a bigger problem, in my opinion, since I
don't think it should touch your MikTeX installation (although I don't

The underlying issue is what is the adequate set of latex packages that the lyx 
package should 
require on Fedora.

A safe bet is to require all the texlive packages. :-D
Surely that is overkill, so we need to make a compromise.

At each moment we need to establish some kind of threshold. And to be able to 
compile the 
User's Guide seems reasonable but I am open to other suggestions.

We had a similar problem reported before

Re: Windows users: can you test the 2.3.0 installer?

2018-03-01 Thread Emile Lunardon
I tried again to install LyX2.3 on my PC running on WINDOWS 8.1. This time
as you have suggested, I have disabled the virus scanner (windows defender)
and installed only for the current user.
The result is identical to the first installation attempt : neither LyX2.3
nor LyX2.2.3 document compilation works due to problem with Miktex 2.9
(wrong termination of pdflalex, missing classes, spaces in directory paths).
Then I have performed a package maintenance of Miktex (one new package
downloaded) and I have reconfigured both LyX2.3 and LyX2.2.3. RESULT : both
LyX versions manage to compile documents now.

CONCLUSION
 The installation of LyX2.3 seems to corrupt the Miktex configuration. This
is not due to an interaction with the anti-virus (disabled). Hopefully an
upgrade of Miktex (if there is a new package to install) repairs Miktex 2.9
and allows LyX to work again.

Scott and Jose,

Installing texlive-babel-spanish fixed the problem. The user guide now 
compiles perfectly under Fedora 27.


Jose: I personally don't require any Babel packages; this just came up 
during testing. So no need to change the spec file, at least not for me.


Thanks!

Earlier Message:

 I've installed and run the latest 2.3.0 installer from the FTP site on 
Windows 10.


I've done 2 installations, both against TexLive 2017:

  1. Windows 10 running natively on a new Dell laptop with Kaby Lake Xeon.

  2. Windows 10 under Virtual box on a Fedora 27 host.

No problems or errors at all, either during installation, lyx program 
startup, or compiling the User Guide.  The generated User Guide PDF 
looks OK as far as I can tell.


Separately, FYI:

I have also built and tested the 2.3.0 tarball under Fedora 27/Texlive 
with QT 5.9.4.  It builds and runs without error on my own documents.  
However, when compiling the User Guide, it throws two errors:


1. "Illegal parameter number in definition of \captionsspanish" with the 
Description:


}

You meant to type ## instead of #, right?

Or maybe a } was forgotten somewhere earlier, and things

are all screwed up? I'm going to assume that you meant ##.

and:

2. "Package babel Error: You haven't defined the language spanish yet." 
with the Description:


\selectlanguage{spanish}

%

Your command will be ignored, type  to proceed

These errors appear to be triggered in Section 3.9.2 on the line: "Les 
incises - même si tout le monde ne les aime pas – sont très utiles."


Yes, that's French, not Spanish.

After clicking "Show Output Anyway" the PDF compiles without further 
error and the affected lines in Section 3.9.2 appear normal.



Am I missing some package from Texlive?

Hope this helps. In any case, thanks to you all for your hard work on 
this release!

Probably you are missing the babel packages:

You can install them as texlive-babel-spanish (or what is equivalent tex-
babel-spanish).

Probably we could add the tex-babel* as either a requirement or suggestion 
in the Fedora spec file. The issue and is that I would have to specify each on

The installation by itself went fine, side by side with the current LyX

I then uninstalled LyX 2.3 and had to upgrade/maintain the Miktex

You meant to type ## instead of #, right?

Or maybe a } was forgotten somewhere earlier, and things

are all screwed up? I'm going to assume that you meant ##.

and:

2. "Package babel Error: You haven't defined the language spanish yet." 
with the Description:


\selectlanguage{spanish}

%

Your command will be ignored, type  to proceed

These errors appear to be triggered in Section 3.9.2 on the line: "Les 
incises - même si tout le monde ne les aime pas – sont très utiles."


Yes, that's French, not Spanish.

After clicking "Show Output Anyway" the PDF compiles without further 
error and the affected lines in Section 3.9.2 appear normal.



Am I missing some package from Texlive?

Hope this helps. In any case, thanks to you all for your hard work on 
this release!

Asunto: Windows users: can you test the 2.3.0 installer?

Dear Windows users,

We received a report that the Windows installer lead to an error, so I
would like to get some more testing before we announce the release.

Can you test the installer for 2.3.0?

  ftp://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/bin/2.3.0

If you test, which installer did you test: the "bundle" or the
"installer"?

Did you get a popup from the MiKTeX package manger during the
installation process? If you just close that popup, does everything
continue as normal?

Do you get any other errors? After you install it, are you able to open
Help > User Guide and compile it without error?

Thanks,

Scott

the 5th alpha release of LyX 2.0.0 is available at:

ftp://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/devel/lyx-2.0/alpha5/LyX-2.0.0alpha5+qt4.dmg

It is build with the development kit of Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) and should be 
usable in theory on 10.4 (Tiger) too.
Since I've no such system myself it would be nice if one Tiger user can check 
if it is usable in praxis.
