Bibliography does not print when using biblatex instead of bibtex

Dear Friends of LyX,
I used bibtex in various documents with single and sectioned bibliographies and that worked without problems.
Then I decided to try using biblatex on one of these documents and found "Using biblatex with LyX" in wiki.lyx.org/Bibtex/Biblatex.
I followed this guide step by step but neither shows the bibliography in the text nor in PDf nor does it print.

I am using:
openSUSE 13.2, KDE
LyX 2.1.2
my collection of references is managed in KBibTeX version 0.5.1

PS: as advised under "Known problems" I did 'biber --cache' which resulted in:
"No cache - you are not running the PAR: Packer executable of biber"

What might be the problem here?

Thanks and regards

xdvi problem in lyx 2.1.2

I recently upgraded to lyx 2.1.2.

 

The following preamble worked fine until I did the upgrade.

 

  • \usepackage{geometry}
  • \newgeometry{top=.85in, bottom=.85in, left=1.30in, right=.65in}
  • \setlength{\footskip}{15pt}\usepackage{fancyhdr}
  • \usepackage{color}
  • \lhead{\small{www.dedoimedo.com}}
  • \rhead{\small{all rights reserved}}
  • \date{}
  • \usepackage{caption}
  • \captionsetup{labelfont=bf,format=plain,indention=0cm,justification=raggedright,singlelinecheck=false}
  • \usepackage{enumitem}
  • \usepackage[hang,splitrule]{footmisc}
  • \addtolength{\footskip}{0.5cm}
  • \setlength{\footnotemargin}{0.3cm}
  • \setlength{\footnotesep}{0.4cm}
  • \usepackage{multirow}
  • \usepackage{rotating}
  • \usepackage{listings}
  • \renewcommand{\arraystretch}{2}
  • \usepackage{watermark}
  • %\usepackage{geometry}
  • % \newgeometry{top=.85in, bottom=.85in, left=1.0in, right=1.0in}
  • \usepackage{ulem}
  • \usepackage{pstricks}



  • % BEGIN left and right vertical lines, and line numbers.

  • \usepackage{eso-pic}
  • \usepackage{calc}
  • \newlength{\leftruleA}
  • \setlength{\leftruleA}{3.2\leftmargin-\marginparsep}
  • \newlength{\leftruleB}
  • \setlength{\leftruleB}{3.0\leftmargin-\marginparsep}
  • \newlength{\rightrule}
  • \setlength{\rightrule}{3.0\leftmargin+\textwidth+\marginparsep}
  • \AddToShipoutPicture{%
  • \put(\LenToUnit{\leftruleA},0){\rule{.5pt}{\paperheight-.5in}} % First rule on the left
  • \put(\LenToUnit{\leftruleB},0){\rule{.5pt}{\paperheight-.5in}} % Second rule on the left
  • \put(\LenToUnit{\rightrule},0){\rule{.5pt}{\paperheight-.5in}} % Rule on the right
  • \rput(1.6,13.74) {
  • \begin{minipage}[t]{20mm}
  • \begin{flushright}
  • \begin{doublespace}
  • 1\\2\\3\\4\\5\\6\\7\\8\\9\\10\\11\\12\\13\\14\\15\\16\\17\\18\\19\\20\\21\\22\\23\\24\\25\\26\\27\\28
  • \end{doublespace}
  • \end{flushright}
  • \end{minipage}
  • }
  • }
  • % END left and right vertical lines, and line numbers.
  • \let\OrgIndex\index

  • \renewcommand*{\index}[1]{\OrgIndex{#1}}

But now xdvik (cntrl-D) shows the line numbers starting half-way down the page, rather than at the top of the page.

Lyx still prints fine. Its only the xdvi view that is screwed up.

Any suggestions?

degrees Celsius in Lyx

This is the correct latex way for 100 degrees Celsius, I believe:
     100\,^{\circ}\mathrm{C}
\,  is for a certain distance between 100 and ^0
Is there a shortcut in lyx for achieving it?
Under
Symbols>character-like symbols>
I find
^{\circ}\mathrm{C}
but do I have to enter \,  in tex
or is "half distance" under formation the correct one?
(sorry, the English expressions are probably different)

The best solution would be to have an all over replacement of my

100\textcelsius
by

p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; } 100\,^{\circ}\mathrm{C}
Possible in Lyx (advanced search and replace)?

Enumerate changes spacing over 2 pages

I have an enumerated list under a section with a number of items that are indented one level.  The list begins towards the bottom of the page and continues on the next page.  The spacing on the list items on the second page changes drastically from what appear to be 1 line to several lines.  I've attached a pdf of the 2 pages in question so it's easier to see what I'm talking about.  Any suggestions on how to remedy this would be greatly appreciated. 

Best regards,

Natbib: Changing Bibliography Style

   I've read natbib.pdf and searched the Web without finding a solution.

   Using the plainnat bibliography style a reference is formatted with the
year at the end; e.g.:

R.C. Ward, J.C. Loftis, and G.B. McBride. The "data-rich but
information-poor" syndrome in water quality monitoring. Environmental
Management, 10(3):291­297, 1986.

   I would like to have the year appear between the author(s) and title;
e.g.:

R.C. Ward, J.C. Loftis, and G.B. McBride. 1986. The "data-rich but
information-poor" syndrome in water quality monitoring. Environmental
Management, 10(3):291­297,

so I tried the humannat style, but this makes no difference.

   There must be a way to make this adjustment and I would appreciate a
pointer to how to do this.

TIA,

Rich

Switching to Chicago NB Notes

I have used LyX to produce a LaTeX file for a chapter I am contributing to a volume. My LaTeX file  uses a common
system for notes and bibliography: there is a bibliography at the end and the citations refer to entires in
that bibliography. But the volume will be using what's called the Chicago NB system: there is no
bibliography at the end; the notes contain the bibliographic information:

https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/717/01/

How difficult will it be for the copy editor to change the format of my paper into the Chicago NB format? Is
this conversion something I should expect the copy editor to take care of? Being a LaTeX novice, I wouldn't
want to do it myself.

JabRef reference in brackets, compiles to '?'

   I'm not seeing what is different in this new document compared with other
docs. Running lyx-2.1.3 and JabRef-2.10 on Slackware-14.1.

   Document->Settings->Bibliography is set for Natbib with Author-year style
rather than numeric, default style is 'plainnat,' and bibliography
generation processor is 'bibtex;' all as set in a document that does not
have these issues.

   A reference row is selected and I click the LyX link. In the document the
reference is displayed as [Author Year] rather than (Author Year) and there
is no other style choice available in the citation settings dialog box. When
I preview the document the citation displays as a question mark.

   After looking at both LyX and JabRef without finding a reason for this
behavior I'm writing to ask for ideas.

Reducing Overfull \hbox

Hi all,

I'm making the second edition of "Twenty Eight Tales of
Troubleshooting", changing it from Memoir to my modification of Book,
and changing the PDF formatting to better fit on a "device". In doing
so, I discovered that a lot of my lines went conspicuously past the
other text, and occasionally went right off the page. Each of these is
represented in the conversion log by an "Overfull \hbox". So here's what
I did...

\usepackage{microtype}
\tolerance=400
\setlength{\emergencystretch}{0.05em}

Those three statements brought it down from tens of occurances to 7,
and most of those 7 are off by less than 5 points, which really doesn't
matter in the grand scheme of things. One, however, walked off the
page, so I had to special-handle that one by creating the following
Sloppystd environment:

========================================================
% ### Sloppy paragraph
\newenvironment{sloppystdL}{\begin{sloppypar}}{\end{sloppypar}}

EndPreamble

Style Sloppystd
  CopyStyle Standard
  LatexType             Environment
  LatexName             sloppystdL
  Font
   Series               Medium 
   Shape                Italic
   Size                 Normal
   Color                Green
  EndFont
End
========================================================

The Sloppystd environment enables me to individually fix problem
paragraphs without ERT.

So if you're having trouble keeping your right margin fully intact,
these are some of the things you can do to improve the situation.

String There But Not Found

Sorry to repeat my question, but the Subject was incorrectly labelled:

I need to replace the American style ," and ." with the British style ", and ". The LyX Find and Replace is
finding some but not all of the strings. I looked for the first ," it did not find, copied it, pasted it into
the Find box, placed the cursor just before it, clicked Find Next, and LyX still did not find it. It seems to
be just the quotation mark, not the comma, that it's not finding.

Any thoughts on what might be going on? Any suggestions?
