I can install the latest LaTeX in my Debian 8.5 as described here at the end of the question body. Apt-get does not have the latest Lyx (2.1.2 < 2.2.1), but I would like to have it and control it centrally with my LaTeX installation. I could not find anything about it with the tool install-tl.

OS: Debian 8.5

  • If you don't get an answer here, write (and join?) to lyx-users@lists.lyx.org. There are Debian users there using the latest LyX. – scottkosty Sep 15 '16 at 22:21

    Currently sid has 2.2.0. If that is good enough you can use pinning. – StrongBad Sep 16 '16 at 0:46

i dont think the install-tl tool can control the update of LyX. Lyx are independent of TeXLive (i suppose you use TeXLive).

But look at this link : https://www.guyrutenberg.com/debian/jessie/ You can find LyX v.2.2.1 for Debian Jessie.

I have not test it because i run on a FreeBSD box.

I hope this will help you!
