I'm trying to make a 3d plot by adapting the one from the beamer gallery. I'm using LyX 2.0. I keep getting an error that LyX can't compile the file because it can't find


Obviously, you don't put this in the LaTeX preamble in Lyx. My document compiled fine before downloading the .sty file and inserting the following line into the preamble.


This is my full preamble:

% or ...

\setbeamertemplate{footline}[text line]{} % makes the footer EMPTY

     \frametitle{Table of Contents}
  \usepackage{3dplot} %requires 3dplot.sty to be in same directory, or in your LaTeX      

How can I resolve this?
