Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 185698
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:27 EST
Description of problem:
The instant preview of equation graphics no longer works after upgrading from
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure "Preview" box is clicked in preferences
2. Load a lyx document with equations
3. No previews generated
The debug info shows lots of occurrences of:
kpathsea: Running mktexpk --mfmode cx --bdpi 120 --mag 1+0/120 --dpi 120 cmmi10
mktexpk: Mismatched mode cx and resolution 120; ignoring mode.
mktexpk: Can't guess mode for 120 dpi devices.
Dropping back to the previous lyx version fixes the problem
I had an old version of dvipng in /usr/local/bin that lyx seemed to be picking
up, instead of the new version in /usr/bin. Removing it fixed the problem.
Glad to hear you got it sorted out.
