Lyx is throwing an error. Can anyone help?

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. Reproducing the problem and finding out what the issue is will be much easier when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. Nov 5 '15 at 8:56

If you put the bioinfo.cls in the proper directory, such as (on Ubuntu): /usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/latex/bioinfo/

Then you can make a Lyx layout as --

#% Do not delete the line below; configure depends on this      
#  \DeclareLaTeXClass[bioinfo]{article (Bioinformatics)}

# Read the definitions from article.layout

Input article.layout

-- And then put that in the proper directory, namely: /usr/share/lyx/layouts/

Then make sure you do sudo texhash on the command line, and tools-> reconfigure in lyx, and you should have it set up.

There is a probably with the .eps image (OUP_First_SBk_Bot_8401.eps) in Lyx that I can't figure out, don't know if that will cause you problems.

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! You can format text passages as code by using the {} button on the top of the editor. Small in line passages you can format as code with the ` accent. Nov 5 '15 at 12:30
  • Thanks for the answer, but I am a Mac user and I could not find any folder of the kind you suggested. Do you know what to do over Mac?
