Re: how to obtain header and footer to insert in word document

You can open pdf in inkscape and cut the footer and/or export that part to a png-file.
There are also other programs that can translate from pdf to e.g. png. Which depends on your platform. 

All the best!

So, it is not possible to get a different format of pdf. i.e a bitmap format, where do I can open it with inkscape (or another program like Gimp) to cut the footer (and the header)

TIA

Hi Anders,

maybe, there are a mistake. I want an image FROM the Latex (lyx) template. Not to insert an image on my footer (or header)

Hi,

I've created a good header and footer for my business card. I would create a model (.dot) on MS Word (and Libre(open office), because some people use it instead of Lyx :-( .

So, I would capture the header and footer , save them as a jpg (or whathever image) then create a model where to insert the two images.

Can someone help me?

Lyx window exceeds screen size

Hi

I am a user of Lyx in my netbook for the past one year. But recently I noticed that many windows in Lyx launch to a size that is larger than my netbook screen. As a result I cannot use the "Ok" button to confirm my changes/ customizations. Further these windows does not allow resizing. 

I faced it specially with the "preferences " option in "Tool" menu   and when I want to insert any citation from the "Insert -Citation " option.

Please suggest me some way so that I can insert citation in the documents or can resize that window.


Thanks in advance

Problem in starting Lyx

Hi,

I am a user of Lyx ( in Ubuntu 12.04) for a year. My lyx was working fine but suddenly it got crashed and when I tried to restart it , the program did not respond. I unistalled Lyx and reinstalled it following the instructions in http://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/LyXOnUbuntu.

But now when I am attempting to start Lyx, in the terminal it shows the following error message:

Warning: Could not read configuration file
----------------------------------------
Error while reading the configuration file
preferences.
Please check your installation.

Please help me. I do not much about ubuntu and lyx. Please help me to solve this issue.

Thanks in advance

Beamer/short title

Hello,

I use the option ShortTitle of Title. but the math formula are wrong.
Typically, the super- and under-script are at the same size than the
normal characters!
Is it an issue with lyx or beamer?

Thank.

Beamer

Hello,

Maybe you could answer to my question.

I use beamer and the table of contents.

\AtBeginSection[]{
  \frame<beamer>{ 
    \frametitle{\textcolor{yellow}{Outline}}
    \tableofcontents[currentsection]%,currentsubsection]
  }
}

The Outline is OK,
Every time that I pass from a Section to the next one I get the section Title

However, I would like that it also shows the subsections at that time
only (ie not in the TOC)!
Can I have a tableofcontents of subsections for each section?

Thank.

Re: Customization manual, 5.1 Installing new LaTeX files, Kubuntu 12.04

Updates:

Looked first in Kubuntu repositories, and installed 3 packages containing parts of the APA style:
  • texlive-publishers
  • texlive-publishers-doc (required dependency)
  • texlive-bibtex-extra
Reconfigured and restart LyX, and APA document class become available. Thank you very much for explaining the relation LaTex-LyX, which allowed me to find these 3 packages in the Kubuntu 12.04 repositories.

But all these packages don't cover APA6 too, and repositories have nothing on APA6. Did read the description in your script, and understood that installing CTAN packages (apa6.dtx) is possible with Tex Live (which I found in Kubuntu repositories). Although I'm afraid to use your script, because you say that some previous installed Tex Live files should be removed manually, and I worry not to brake the system. Also, I don't really need all CTAN repository. Need a file, can download it.

At this point, I wonder if I could use the texlive package in Kubuntu repositories to install the apa6.dtx file I already downloaded. I understand from the description in your script that texlive works in the back. So, all I should do is to run: sudo apt-get Downloads/apa6/apa6.dtx (where directory is the actual one).

Sorry to bother you with all these details, but I'm not a programmer, just a somehow advanced Linux user. I try to avoid wrong steps, being afraid of doing something bad, I couldn't repair. This is why I'm asking you for a confirmation if what I intend to do is right.

Thanks again (happy to have get work the APA class),
P.G.

Thanks Scott,

First for correcting the email I've previously used, from lyx.docs to lyx.users. Sorry for having used the wrong one before.
Second (actually this should count for first), thanks for the clear explanation about LyX vs. LaTex functions, and the detailed procedure to install the files to make unavailable classes, available. Copy-paste code lines in a terminal is the programming language I perfectly understand ...And the only one! I'll give it a try sometime these days, and will be back to you with the results.

Thank you very much,

Hi Patrick,

Thank you for thoughtful email. It's always nice to receive feedback
on what we're doing right and what we need to do better. It's nice to
see LaTeX and LyX being used more widely outside of math-based
disciplines. It really does have a lot of features that should not be
limited to publications with math.

LyX is a frontend to LaTeX. What that means is that LyX does the
formatting then hands it off to LaTeX. You are asking about installing
LaTeX files. That is not the job of LyX. It is the job of your LaTeX
package (TeX Live in Ubuntu) or of your package manager (apt in
Ubuntu). I don't see how LyX could make the process easier without
going far outside of its purview. Please let me know if you disagree
or if you have any further feedback on this. These are just my
opinions.

Now to your question. I suggest you google "install LaTeX packages in
Ubuntu." Alternatively, you might be interested in a script that I
wrote:
https://github.com/scottkosty/install-tl-ubuntu

With just a couple commands you can install everything you will ever
need for using LyX and LaTeX and all of the document classes in LyX
will become available.
If you want to use it, I recommend you remove your current TeX Live files:
sudo apt-get purge texlive-*

Then download the script with:
wget https://github.com/scottkosty/install-tl-ubuntu/raw/master/install-tl-ubuntu
&&
chmod +x ./install-tl-ubuntu

Then take a look at the options you might want:
./install-tl-ubuntu --help

For example, you might like the "--more-tex" option, which installs
all LaTeX files needed for LyX.

Then, run with:

sudo ./install-tl-ubuntu --more-tex

Note that this will take a long time. I recommend you run it before
you go to bed. After it is done, restart your computer. Then in LyX go
to Tools > Reconfigure. Then restart LyX. Now the document classes
should all be available.

Please send any further questions (including replies to this email) to
lyx-users <at> lists.lyx.org. You send your email to the documentation
list, which should only be used for corrections to LyX's
documentation.

Best,

Scott

Question - all document classes gone

Dear all,

Unfortunately almost all document classes are gone in Lyx including natbib. In the past, I installed some additional classes e.g. Springer SV global V3, which are gone in LYX too even the files are still available in the folder  (e.g. usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/tex/latex/local). 
Lyx version 2.12 and MacTex is uptodate including all updates. MacOsX is Yosemite. I noticed that „Reconfigure“ is way quicker after this bug came. „Texhash“ and "$ sudo -H mktexlsr“ did not help either.

Any idea?

Thank you very much in advance,

Sebastian
