I made a lyx document but when I send this document to my instructor's system, it gives the following error enter image description here

Kindly help, what sort of issue is this?

  • I notice that the error comes from your Temp directory. Try naming, renaming, or re-creating the document in a regular directory, that might help. Use a name that is something short, for instance mydoc.lyx would work.

    What's his and what's your LyX version? If the versions don't match LyX starts conversion. That however sometimes doesn't work, especially if you have a lot of raw TeX code included.Send your instructor a very simple document and see if that works. If your LyX version is newer, try exporting in an older document format. Jun 22, 2016 at 10:57
  • In addition to the above comment, LyX developers would love to see the file that does not open. Can you send the file to [email protected] ? This way if there is a bug we can fix it. Note that it is a public mailing list so please remove anything you do not want public.
