I am simply trying to insert pictures into the document; all I get is:
Error: Cannot convert file
No information for converting png format files to eps. Define a converter in the preferences.
And as god is my witness I have tried. I attempted modyfying 'Tools -> Preferences -> File Handling -> Converters' but I am confused as of what exactly is expected. Is there any special requirements for images in Lyx?
The environment is Arch of version bleeding edge and Lyx 2.3.1.
Full error output:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/share/lyx/scripts/convertDefault.py", line 38, in <module> output = output.decode() AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'decode' Systemcall.cpp (294): Systemcall: 'python -tt "/usr/share/lyx/scripts/convertDefault.py" png "/tmp/lyx_tmpdir.uwjpEexWrZGG/lyx_tmpbuf0/0_home_sebastian_Temp_Felis_silvestris_silvestris_small_gradual_decrease_of_quality.png" eps "/tmp/lyx_tmpdir.uwjpEexWrZGG/lyx_tmpbuf0/0_home_sebastian_Temp_Felis_silvestris_silvestris_small_gradual_decrease_of_quality.eps"' finished with exit code 1 Error: Cannot convert file ---------------------------------------- No information for converting png format files to eps.

Any help much appreciated, I don't want to go back to LO only because of this.
