Citations not appearing and causing Errors

Postby thmbbs » Wed Mar 20, 2013 7:33 am


I should have been here much more earlier, not at the moment of no return, but things seemed to be going smooth and I was able to write the bulk of my thesis on LyX and I thought it will end that way. With the whooshing sound of the deadline in my ears, I am desperately looking for your help.

I am trying to insert citations in jurabib style and as a matter of fact, after plethora of errors and some intuitive tweaking at the moment I ended up with a "?" sign where the citation should have been.

Since, I am a newbie/fool I won't be able to provide details. Instead, I will beg your help by sharing my files.

This is my utterly hopeless thesis:
(117.82 KiB) Downloaded 93 times

This is my .bib file that I got through Zotero, output format is BibTeX:
(15.23 KiB) Downloaded 87 times

Lastly, this all the installed packages filtered by the word "latex":
packages-installed.png (207.84 KiB) Viewed 1700 times

I can give my left kidney for help.

Thank you and hi again...

I found no citation commands in your entire document (I'm not counting the \nocite{*} I found at the end). When I added some, they came out in fairly standard form, e.g., [1].

If you get question marks, it might mean you've made a typo, or it might mean you need to run LaTeX again. Since you're using LyX, though, it should handle that sort of thing for you.

As I said, this works for me (once I download the subscript package, anyway), if I add in some citation commands, either through LyX or through LaTeX.

Return to “LyX”
