I am trying to enable XeLaTeX for LyX, but I have some problems. I am using Ubuntu 11.04 and LyX 2.0. I followed an online tutorial in order to install XeTeX.

Then I opened LyX, but I can't enable the option to "use non TeX fonts via XeTeX/LuaTeX":


ps1: LyX's interface is in Greek language

ps2: I have to enable first this option and then use a code in preamble in order to use a font right? :roll:

  • I don't suppose there's much chance you'll see this ... Can you double check that TeXlives binaries is actually in your path, e.g., by running pdflatex -v in a terminal? I just installed TeXlive on Mint (without doing step 1.4 and 1.5 in your tutorial), and, prior to installing LyX, ran equivs as described here. Using system fonts in LyX worked fine then. – Torbjørn T. Dec 10 '11 at 21:21
  • Under Ubuntu (12.04 now) I've installed xetex via sudo apt-get install texlive-xetex and it works just fine. – Nikos Alexandris Sep 24 '12 at 18:44
