Is there anyway to get minted to work with LyX?

Since minted is an official package listed on CTAN and part of the common TeX distributions, you should be able to install it by the package manager of your distribution and utilize it. I cannot tell you how to include the package in LyX.

Hmm, I can't seem to find it in Ubuntu 11.10. Is there a distro you know has it? Also, why can't you tell me how to include it in LyX? Do you not want to tell me, or do you not know?

Thanks

Check on the command line (terminal) whether the package can be found in your TeX installation tree.
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
kpsewhich minted.sty

This should yield the complete path to the package. If there is no output, you have to install extra TeX Live packages by the Ubuntu package manager. Since I'm not using Ubuntu, I can't tell you details.

Note that I was not talking about Linux distributions, but about TeX distributions like MiKTeX or TeX Live. Both contain the minted package.

What makes you think that I don't want? Would I be here else? I can't tell you because I just don't use LyX.

Hi, guys, here is how I got minted.sty working in lyx. (alternatively minted is an official CTAN package so it could be done that way)

First download (or make) minted.sty

Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
sudo mkdir "/usr/share/texmf-texlive/tex/latex/minted/"
sudo cp minted.sty "/usr/share/texmf-texlive/tex/latex/minted/"
sudo mktexlsr


Then in lyx, go to Tools/Tex Information, select latex styles and click rescan. minted.sty should appear in the list

in lyx, go to "Tools>preferences>file handling>converters" and find the converter from tex to pdflatex. Edit its command line adding the option "-shell-escape" (no quotes) into the Converter field, then click the Modify button next to the list of converters. Then click Apply

in lyx, go to Document>Settings and enter "/usepackage{minted}" (no quotes) in the latex preamble

in lyx, in the part of your document where you want the highlighted code to appear, go to "Insert>TEX code" to get an Evil Red Text (ERT) box

in the ERT box, type:
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\begin{minted}{python}
def boring(args = None): pass
\end{minted
}


Then render your lyx file as a pdf by clicking the render pdf button in lyx. If you get an error message post it here.

Hope this helps! Telewatho

EDIT: oh, and make sure you get ERT boxes in the right place in lyx or you will get errors when you try and render
