comment Ș and ș: the “character is uncodable in verbatim paragraphs” error
I think you are right that it is that LyX bug. On the good side it appears it was fixed.

@adolphenom you might be interested in LyX's mailing list for Spanish speakers. To subscribe, send a blank email to lyx-es-subscribe@lists.lyx.org . To then ask questions, send an email to lyx-es@lists.lyx.org . We are an informal group and the mailing list is low-traffic.

comment Grammar checker at Lyx on Windows 7
Have you read the page wiki.lyx.org/Tools/LyX-GrammarChecker ? In particular, this quote is relevant: "I have not tested this script under Windows, but it should just work if you are using Cygwin" ?

comment Grammar checker at Lyx on Windows 7
Hi and welcome! When asking questions like this, it is useful if you mention what you already know. This is good because (1) you will get advice that you don't yet know, and (2) it is helpful to others that find your question.

comment Lyx/Tex installation problems on Linux Mint 17
@mfhholmes glad it worked. So what happened? It said it would install tex-common and you were worried about that causing it to install a bunch of other packages, but that did not happen?

comment Lyx/Tex installation problems on Linux Mint 17
@mfhholmes dang I have not seen that when installing the lyx package. I don't know how to get around that. You could compile and install LyX yourself. It's not as hard as it sounds. I have instructions here: tex.stackexchange.com/a/180167/12212 but those might be specific to my setup.

comment Hyperref ruins formulas in Lyx 2.1
I recommend you also upload a .tex minimal example (please put it directly in your question for archival purposes). There are a lot of people around here who don't use LyX. To do that go to File > Export and then choose the format that you use to compile.

comment Hyperref ruins formulas in Lyx 2.1
@DanisFischer the Hebrew is relevant. I can reproduce the problem you see. If I then select all and then go to Edit > Language and click on English (even if there is already a check), the problem goes away for me.

Yes please provide a .lyx MWE: wiki.lyx.org/FAQ/MinimalExample . Also, if the issue you see is only there when using Hebrew, this is important to know.

I agree with cfr (and he is correct on his points). My script is just if you want something simple that works.

You might be interested in github.com/scottkosty/install-tl-ubuntu . To use it, uninstall everything you've installed then run sudo ./install-tl-ubuntu. If you want to install all of the dependencies that LyX needs so that you can compile every single LyX example and template, run instead sudo ./install-tl-ubuntu --more-tex.

@kuru I see, thank you for the explanation.

comment How to add text to a page before the name of the chapter in LyX?
Hi kuru, you have three other questions that are waiting for your feedback. It might just be my opinion, but I consider it polite to respond to people trying to help you before you ask new questions.

comment How to use double line in Lyx tables
I do not think LyX support for tables is intuitive in many cases. And I say this as one of the authors of the tabular code in LyX. I would like to redesign the code someday. I would appreciate it if you made a feature request for double lines in LyX at lyx.org/trac

comment Why doesn't Version Control option under File menu work in LyX v2.1.1?
Works fine for me on Ubuntu. In general, please avoid phrases such as "doesn't work". Why do you say it doesn't work? Please write the exact steps that you took (e.g. 1. open file > ... 2. click on... 3...) and then give the result (eg. "nothing happened" or "I got this error: xxx"). You are more likely to get help if you explain what you did. Also explain what software you do have installed. Do you have subversion installed? Does it work for you outside of LyX?

comment What are some useful packages in lyx for writing thesis?
Also, take a look at the "thesis" in LyX examples directory (go to File > Open then click on the "examples" button).

comment Run an external script from within lyx
Sure, read the section in Help > Customization on Converters. Actually you seem like might like to read the whole customization manual. Also note that file versioning software is natively supported. See Help > Additional > Version Control in LyX.
