This is my first time using LyX to write my thesis.
Running on Mac (OSX 10.9) and downloaded LyX Version 2.1.1.
I noticed that there is no installer. All LyX files are bundled here:
Below (where LyX looks in for templates) is empty:
(2) /Library/Application Support/LyX-2.1/
So, I copied relevant files from (1) to (2).
Now, LyX sees the templates.
But, LyX complains that I am missing template prerequisites when I try to load them.
For example, I tried to load this template:
"Document cannot be compiled until the following prerequisites are installed: report.cls"
Similar flags are thrown for the other default Lyx templates.
How and where do I get these template prerequisites?
I have MacTex installed.
I must be missing something: it should not be this hard.
