Description Alex Lancaster 2008-03-03 09:03:03 UTC
Description of problem:
Can't export PDF

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
lyx-1.5.4-1.fc9.i386

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install lyx
2. reconfigure lyx to make sure
3. Help->Introduction
3. File->Export->PDF (pdflatex)
  
Actual results:
Copying /tmp/lyx_tmpdir22126iwMupD/lyx_tmpbuf0/Intro.pdf to [doc/Intro.pdf]
failed.

Expected results:
File should have been generated

Additional info:
Before the most recent texlive update, "View->PDF (pdflatex)" generated a PDF
that had the right number of pages, but all fonts were blank.  The latest
texlive update appeared to add a number of dependent packages.  Now at least the
PDF generates when viewing it.

Just for reference, this is the complete list of packages installed on fairly
bare machine when running:

sudo yum install lyx

  Installing: lyx                          ####################### [17/17] 

I'm not sure if this is related but the latest "yum update" since the above
added the following tex-related packages:

Installed: tex-preview-11.85-7.fc9.noarch
Installed: texlive-utils-2007-21.fc9.i386

Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2008-03-04 15:26:23 UTC
more than likely due to texlive flux atm, and the possibility that we're missing
the correct dep to pull in pdflatex (I *think* it lives in teslive-texmf-latex tho).

Recent texlive updates have indeed appeared to fix this on the last I tested, so
closing. 

(By the way, the export issue was due to exporting a .lyx file that was in
write-only directory /usr/share/lyx/doc/ )
