How do you install a module in Lyx? I find this site is not helpful enough: http://wiki.lyx.org/Layouts/Modules
Find the Lyx configuration directory (LCD), which will be
.lyx on many installations.
Put your module in the
layouts subdirectory of LCD.
Tell Lyx about your module by adding a line to the
lyxmodules.lst file in the CFD, which has six strings. I give an example in my answer to the How to create (1) a new Environment for LyX's Environment drop-down menu, (2) a new Text Style question.
You can find an overview into what goes into installing a module at:
Here is the takehome, though:
- Locate your LyX users directory. You can do this by clicking on Help -> About LyX. (If using a Mac, it is located under the Application menu.) It will usually be listed under the library directory in the About pane.
- The user directory will have several folders. Look for one called "layouts" (as noted by the answer above). Copy your module folder into this folder.
- Run the "Reconfigure" utility from the "Tools" menu. This will regenerate the
lyxmodules.lstfile. (In general it is not a good idea to edit this file by hand.)
- Restart LyX. The new module will appear under "Modules" in the Document Settings window.
