No export menu LyX 2.1.3 Ubuntu 15.04

Postby Belswood » Fri Apr 10, 2015 3:31 pm

I have recently updated my Ubuntu system to 15.04 and it upgraded my LyX version to 2.1.3. However, the "export to" menu is now faded and there are no menu items to update or view pdflatex.

I use LyX everyday to write a novel and desperately need to export to, save, update, and view pdflatex files. These functions worked fine in LyX before the upgrade to version 2.1.3.

Any suggestions or help would be much appreciated! (I consider LyX as indispensable to my work product.)

Thank you in advance.

Hi and welcome,

LyX developers aren't here often. You might reach them faster with The LyX users mailing list. If this should be a bug, they can lead you further down the road.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

Welcome to the forum!

Nevertheless, LyX questions can often be solved here, since it's mostly LaTeX. Especially a LaTeX exported file, posted here, brings us to a solution most of the times.

Back to your problem! I suppose, after your Ubuntu update, your TeX installation is not correct. Even if LyX is installed, TeX packages would be required in any case. So verify if you have texlive installed. I would install texlive-full to avoid problems with missing packages.

I tried both suggestions. The TextLive package was reinstalled and there was no command for textlive-full. Have posted on the listserv at suggested by prior respondent. Hopefully, if a bug they will fix soon!

Hi Belswood,

Thanks for your message. I responded on the list. Let's continue the discussion there. When you "cross-post" it's useful if you link to your posts. That way we can all share information and if a user has the same problem as you and comes across this thread they can find the solution by following the link. I'll take care of it this time.

Best,

Scott
