I'm writing my thesis and have to use a LyX-template which uses the glossary package. When creating the PDF in LyX there is no error but also no glossary?

I check my document against the description here: https://secure.mario-konrad.ch/wiki/doku.php?id=latex:glossary (last example)

The interesting point the execution chain of compiling:

$ latex example.tex
$ makeindex example.glo -s example.ist -t example.glg -o example.gls
$ latex example.tex
$ dvips example.dvi -o example.ps

Does anybody know how to configure LyX to do the compilation in this order?

  • Welcome to TeX.sx! A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces or enclose words in backticks `, they'll be marked as code, as can be seen in my edit. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (with "{}" on it). – Peter Jansson Mar 5 '13 at 23:10

    As stated on CTAN the package glossary should not be used anymore and the glossaries package should be used instead. Check my answer here. To omit the acronyms list, just ignore the \newglossaryentry{...}{type=\acronymtype... and the \printglossary[type=\acronymtype]. – e-birk Mar 5 '13 at 23:18
  • Hi, I followed the instructions and created the bat file changed the converter command an added the example acronym. The acronym is correctly resolved but the acronym-glossary is still missing...?! If I got it right I should use `\newglossaryentry{api}´ (what I have done for testing). When this will work someday is there a wy to "recycle" the old command of ´\newacronym{}{}{}´? – JimBob Mar 6 '13 at 12:40
  • @JimBob Actually, "converter" refers to something different in LyX. But if you changed the "Nomenclature command" then it is alright. Does your document contain the two \printglossary... commands? There is also an example given. Is it working? - To your second question: It is possible according to this documentation on how to upgrade from glossary to glossaries. You might replace \newacronym with \oldacronym to get the old functionality. – e-birk Mar 6 '13 at 23:07
  • Hi again! Sorry for delay! Even the example isn't working. It converts without errors but the glossaries are missing. Oviously the bat file is the reason. I copied the 2 line. Do I have to mind something additionally by side of changing the output command? – JimBob Mar 11 '13 at 21:01
