I am a third year math student and I decided to start writing in TEX.

I installed Lyx 2.0 and wrote a new document, when I tried to export using the option "PDF(ps2pdf)" I got an error: lyx cannot conver file: an error occurred while running python...

I also have miktex 2.9 installed for Hebrew support.

I tried uninstalling and installing back but that didn't help.

I need some help, any ideas ?

  • What do you have in your document? Apr 20 '12 at 9:25
  • Field theory homework...nothing special

  • Images, text, language, formatting, styles etc. Hopefully LaTeX shouldn't care about your writing ;) Apr 20 '12 at 9:40
  • A friend compiled it so it should be ok. it's english with math notations and with title\auther..no images. it's basic since it's my first document in lyx

  • What does View -> Messages say? What does Document -> LaTeX log say? (best not to paste everything here, just see if does anything interesting) Apr 29 '12 at 18:04

You probably shouldn't use Export and "PDF (ps2pdf)".

In the View menu and select View [PDF (pdflatex)]. You can also use Ctrl+R.

  • Another error : "File does not exist". I tried saving again and re-opening the document but I get the same error
