There seems to be a new ruby version around which produces the error: csv2latex:52:in `gsub': invalid byte sequence in US-ASCII (ArgumentError) Any idea how to fix that?

"GSview is no longer avail­able from CTAN: it should be re­trieved from its home page."

Why not telling me this URL ? Life could be so simple

I'm happy using LyX :D but there are some things that make me feel frustated. How can I install a new style of bibliography? How can be that ctang.org doesn't have a simple general manual that explains how to's?

Works, but only with a little trick...

Thanks for this, I just started documenting my Lua code code with his. However, it did not work from the start. Itried the examples, and also they did not work 100%. Then I noticed a certain pattern, and in fact my documentation works if I insert the following at the beginning of the file:

function class() -- dummy function to get this to work return "nothing" end X = class()

Bug of feature?

How to contact the author of txfonts

I noticed that the package txfont generates a \Lambda if I call $\openbox$. Enclosed you find a minimal example:

\documentclass[a4paper,10pt]{article} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage{amsthm} \usepackage{txfonts} \begin{document} The following commands yield
\begin{center} \verb \openbox = \openbox
\verb $\openbox$ = $\openbox$, \end{center} \end{document}

Unfortunately I could not find the Email address of the maintainer Young Ryu in the documentation. How can I contact him to send him this "bugreport"?

How to install supp-pdf.mkii?

Good morning. I am newbie working with Latex, but I´ve got a problem. When I try to compile my .tex file, Texmaker ask me about install supp-pdf.mkii. I tried many respositories without success. What can I do? Thanks for your help!

How to Install to LyX?

Installation procedures should be listed under http://www.lyx.org/Download I've done this on Windows 7 by just downloading the installer and running it. Of course, I already had a TeX distribution installed (TeX Live, available from http://www.tug.org/texlive/).

Alternatively, I would suggest using a LyX mailing list for specific problems. See: http://www.lyx.org/MailingLists
