I can't find anything on the wiki.
I'm using a Mac OS X 10.11.6 if that helps.
I was trying to find a shortcut for the tedious

LyX actually calls a Python script that does the configure. So you can call it directly. If I wanted to configure the typical user directory, I would do the following:
locate -i configure.py. For me, this gives
cdto your user directory and run
Thus, I would do:
cd ~/.lyx && python /usr/share/lyx/configure.py
By the way, in the future it helps if you describe why you want to do something. I know that from your perspective, you probably think it's not relevant, but from the perspective of answering a question, it often helps. For example, I'm not sure if you want to configure the directory in the same user directory that is the default when you open LyX; or if you want to make a new user directory (e.g., have a different set of preferences from your main LyX).
