I wish to compile my dissertation in the beautiful classicthesis. My setting: Mac OX 10.6.8, TeX Live 2012 + LyX 2.0.5. I am able to work and produce document in Chinese elsewhere including in book, memoir, but just not in classicthesis. After several attempts, including copying following solution... http://www.latex-community.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=11098 Maybe the problem is on babel that doesn't accommodate Chinese? I wonder if anyone can provide a direction for solving this issue.

  • \usepackage{ctex}, then it can produce Chinese words. Why not use pkuthss,seuthesis or thuthesis? They are all thesis templates for Chinese. – Pig Cry Jan 10 '13 at 4:11
  • Thank you for the kind suggestion, Pig Cry. I got the problem solved. It didn't go with \usepackage{ctex}, but with {pinyin}{babel}. – user24219 Jan 10 '13 at 6:02

    @user24219 I'm interested in using classicthesis, and I also use Chinese text; would you mind writing out the full solution for the problem? – Mårten Jan 10 '13 at 8:05

step 1: find -config.tex and make following change. {latin9}{inputenc}{utf8}{inputenc}. {ngerman,american}{babel}{pinyin,american}{babel}. plus adding \usepackage[pinyin]{babel}. step 2: go to each document and perform lyx document setting→fonts/cjk/bsmi(or others). then →language: chinese(...), encoding: language default. modules should be selected accordingly.
