Lyx for Ubuntu--why is it so big? 06/12/2013 10:19, liamg I've been using LyX on Ubuntu for several years. I have mixed feelings about it, but a lot of my files are already written in it, so I can't afford to give it up at this point. I have a new installation of Ubuntu, so it's time to re-install lyx as well. However, in the Ubuntu software center, LyX is listed as 500mb to... Re: Font/PDF Blurriness 06/12/2013 09:20, Johannes_B I beg you to sit down, take a break and a very deep breath.

Re: Font/PDF Blurriness 06/12/2013 04:26, InquisitorMo I have created another PDF document which I have appended here created with the BASKERVILLE font (which I would prefer to use over default), as I would like someone's opinion as to whether they also see any differences between this and the default font.

I looked as some PDF LATEX examples online, and some look similar, but others look quite different.

I am currently writing lots of latex code for uni notes in a maths class and have run into a problem using the theorem, ntheorem, amsthm packages. I've defined theorem, proof, lemma etc environments at the beginning of my document in this format.

Here's what I want to appear:

Re: Font/PDF Blurriness 05/12/2013 19:52, InquisitorMo 1. I'm not sure - will switching to pdflatex be better than using XeLatex?

(I discovered for example that "\smallcaps" was a problem because it was referring to the system font file I was specifying orig...
