I try to install a package with MiKTeX to use with LyX editor on Ubuntu 18.04.

It seems MiKTeX put packages in one directory and LyX reads from another.

How can I resolve it?

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! Have you tried matching those paths? What have you tried so far? Have you read this post? – jchd Dec 1 '19 at 14:05
  • Hi, I am really thankful for you trying to help. I read this post, but wasn't able to get help from it. I am very new to linux, miktex and lyx. I tried to change folder path from within Lyx, but i didn't succeed. – Yuval Amit Dec 1 '19 at 18:40

Have you tried to check the paths known to Lyx. You can do so in Tools > Preferences > Path > PATH prefix enter image description here

Then probably you have to click the Recongigure menu (Tools > Reconfigure) and then re-start Lyx.

I hope that helps.

  • Thanks, I tried it and it didn't work, I also see the files in the Tex information. Meanwhile I switched to Texmaker, works perfect – Yuval Amit Dec 5 '19 at 20:14
  • Hello. You might find more information about what is going wrong in the Messages pane. View menu > Messages pane, and then try to compile the document again. – Miguel Ángel Artaso Landa Dec 6 '19 at 21:28
