comment How to move TeX Live to another partition (/data)
Even then it is easier for me to follow the same procedures as I'm just a noob. (It takes just a few seconds.)

Buntus/Debian has LyX bundled with the TeX dependency, but that TeX part is very old (Texlive 2009). So I've installed the 3 GB Texlive 2011 and installed LyX from the terminal as it's reccomended in LyX website: sudo apt-get --no-install-recommends install lyx. Haven't tried to use it in the other distro yet, but I guess I'll do the same thinks I've done for the first one. I've already succesfully updated /data/texlive by tlmgr. What do you think? Am I on the wrong track?

Thank you guys. So should I follow these steps: 1) $ mv -r /usr/local/texlive /data/texlive. 2) Edit ~/.profile like so: # set PATH so it includes user's private bin if it exists if [ -d "$HOME/bin" ] ; then PATH="$HOME/bin:$PATH" fi # set PATH so it includes TexLive if [ -d "/data/texlive/2011/bin/x86_64-linux" ] ; then PATH="/data/texlive/2011/bin/x86_64-linux:$PATH" fi if [ -d "/data/texlive/2011/texmf/doc/man" ] ; then MANPATH="/data/texlive/2011/texmf/doc/man:$MANPATH" fi if [ -d "/data/texlive/2011/texmf/doc/info" ] ; then INFOPATH="/data/texlive/2011/texmf/doc/info:$INFOPATH" fi
