Lyx/dvips problem

Lyx/dvips problem

Post by D » Sat, 21 Dec 1996 04:00:00

I have Slackware 3.1 (2.0.0), Lyx 0.10.7, gs 4.03. I can print
fine from Netscape and gv. My printre filter runs gs with a list of
options and .ps files print ok.

But I can't seem to print directly from Lyx... I have to
View(ghostview) and print from there. I've read what I can find
on the subject, but no luck. There are 2 options under "Print to:" in
Lyx: "file" and "printer". How do I tell it to print directly
using gs ? Thanks for clues.


1. Latex/dvips/lyx help!

  Hi.  I'm trying to get Lyx working on my Slackwarer 3.0 system.  It seems
to run fine unless I try and print :(.  

  The problem seems to be with dvips.  If I tell Lyx to print to the
printer, it runs the document through tex, but dvips stops witha message
about not finding a configuration file for my printer (lp).  BTW, there IS a
printcap entry for lp.  It runs "magicfilter" and I have no problem printing
ascii text or postscript to me HP deskjet.

  Now, if I tell Lyx to print to a file (, dvips seems to get a
bit farthur.  However, it still bombs out with a message about not being
able to find a scecific font.  I DO, however, have the font it is looking
for.  The font shows up in /usr/lib/texmf/fonts/tmp/pk/CanonCX, but dvips
can't seem to find it.

  I know almost nothing about how this system is supposed to work, and I
can't figure out where it's even looking for the files it needs.

  If anyone can help me I'd really appreciate it.  I've tried installing
every TeX package I could (except the obviously unneeded ones like unusual
fonts.)  I've looked at every man page I could think of.  The dvips man page
says to look in dvips.texi, which I don't have...
