Maxima TeX Conversion not Working in Lyx . . .

Postby BuntuLyX » Mon Jan 20, 2014 10:25 pm

Greetings!

I have a simple question for the community today; but it's been troubling me for a while.

Suppose we have a straightforward equation formatted for Maxima,

  1. integrate(4*sqrt(1-(x^2)),x,0,1);


Then, desiring syntax for direct insertion into a *.lyx document, we run

  1. tex ('integrate(4*sqrt(1-(x^2)),x,0,1));


yielding

  1. 4\,\int_{0}^{1}{\sqrt{1-x^2}\;dx}


Then, into a normally-headered *.lyx document, we insert

  1. \begin_body
  2.  
  3. \begin_layout Standard
  4. \begin_inset Formula
  5. \begin{eqnarray*}
  6. 4\,\int_{0}^{1}{\sqrt{1-x^2}\;dx}
  7. \end{eqnarray*}
  8.  
  9. \end_inset
  10.  
  11.  
  12. \end_layout
  13.  
  14. \end_body


which, when opened in LyX (using either Octave or Maxima to solve/edit), does not return an answer to the document.

What might this newbie be missing to allow an equation converted through Maxima (tex) to run directly in a *.lyx document?

Thanks a bunch ;)
