I need to import in Lyx the following layout: brain_damage.sty


How can I convert it to a format that LyX can understand?

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. Any particular reason to use this rather than philosophy.sty (which is already included in TeX Live, at least)? I don't use LyX but there is a way to edit the preamble of you document and you need to add \usepackage{philosophy} (or \usepackage{brain_damage}.

  • ^ It is not included in TeX Live. I just happen to have installed it. However, it does include some enhancements over brain_damage. (Basically, it is brain_damage + changes to make the maths fit better, if I remember right.)

You can save brain_damage.sty and place it where (La)TeX can find it and then include


in your Document > Settings... > LaTeX Preamble. Alternatively, copy-and-paste everything between


(that is, the ... above) and place it directly in the Document > Settings... > LaTeX Preamble.
