### help for greek fonts please

I am really a newbie in the tex/latex world, and possibly from you POV even worse I use lyx to work in latex, but I really need some help...

Due to a fatal crash I had to reinstall my system and now I have a Fedora19 linux system, with the latest lyx and texlive versions.

My problem is that editing any (I use often greek letters in formulae) formerly working documents under lyx, I get:

and in fact I see that the dir /usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/latex/greek-fontenc/ is empty

But installing it by yum install yum install texlive-greek-fontenc.noarch, (and calling texhash, and doing reconfigure&exit&restart in lyx), although I now have the lgrenc.def file, the error becomes:

LaTeX error: this NFSS system isnt set up properly     \begin{document}     For encoding scheme LGR the defaults cmr/m/n do not form a valid font shapeThe system maintainer forgot to specify a suitable substitution font shape using the DeclareErrorFont command

followed by many errors:

corrupted NFSS tables

in the presence of the \textgreek{m} command
