hi, I'm a new lyx user (or want to be one).
I have a windows 8 64bit in hebrew. I tried to install the new lyx - LyX-188.8.131.52-Bundle-5 with miktex, but I cant export anything. When I press ctrl+r it says command disabled, and if I try file->export->more formats&options I see an empty table. A friend of mine saw through a debugging mode that article.cls and theoram.sty are missing, but I dont get if that the problem and what to do. Also, reconfiguring failes every time. Please help!
Nope. As I said - reconfigure fails every time. But thanks.
By the way, I said my windows is in hebrew because I know it can cause difficulties with some programs (writing is from right to left). I also tried hebrew and english versions of lyx.
You did indeed. Sorry for missing that.
That was good to mention. LyX does have support for Hebrew (and Right-to-Left in general) but there are several bugs.
If you think you found a bug, file at http://www.lyx.org/trac
You might also want to write to firstname.lastname@example.org
One other thing I've seen people recommend is to uninstall everything completely (MiKTeX, LyX), and then install under administrator.
Best of luck,
You should try to figure out why reconfigure fails everytime. My guess is either because you have a Python version that LyX is using that does not work well with configure.py or LyX can't find your TeX install. I gave you a suggestion (uninstalling and then reinstalling as an administrator).
I can't help you more than that because I'm completely lost on Windows (been 6 years since I used it).
Well thanks anyway. My account is the administrator one so no news there. And Python version doesn't mean much to me.
This is the debugging output for reconfigure - if someone can have a look.
I had this problem with LyX bundle (and running on windows 7).
Honestly, I didn´t exactly solve the problem itself. I just installed LyX in a different way (the way I usually do it)
1) uninstall LyX and MikTeX (if you are using windows, for example)
2) Download protext package ( http://www.tug.org/protext/ )
2.1) Install MikTeX full and ghostscript (optionally, install jabref for managing bibtex files and ghostview to view ps files and texmaker if you want a good LaTeX editor).
3) Download and install LyX (not LyX bundle, just LyX)
This should work (it always worked for me).
But basically this is the same as downloading MiKtex full and everything else, but protext comes with everything in one file. It´s a big file, but if you don´t want to have problems with packages or having to update packages, it´s pretty full.
