lyx doesn't display graphics
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:27 EST
Description of problem:
lyx doesn't display the inserted graphics. I am using qt frontend.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a new file in lyx
2. Insert an eps file using the menu "Insert -> Graphics..."
lyx displays "Error converting to loadable format"
lyx displays the inserted graphics in the window
dvi, ps, and pdf files are exported successfully. It seems just a display problem.
You may have an old config in your home directory. Try
From lyx' menu:
BTW, what kind of graphic are you inserting?
See upstream report regarding graphic preview probs:
BTW, to you have the ImageMagick rpm installed?
It seems that the problem was solved. It is weird because I installed FC5 on a
freshly formatted hard drive and there should be no old config file in my home
directory. Anyway, I'm happy with the result. Thank you for your suggestion.
FYI, I am using eps graphics and I do have ImageMagick rpm installed.
Glad it worked for you.
Now, I have to figure out why the Reconfigure was required in the first place
(it shouldn't be)
To reproduce the problem, I removed the lyx and lyx-qt package and the old
config file, then installed them again. This time, everything worked.
I checked my yum.log. Although I did install ImageMagick, I installed it as a
dependency of xfig after I reported the bug. I think you are right. It is the
ImageMagick problem. Perhaps the ImageMagick rpm should be added to lyx's
dependencies list such that people don't need to install ImageMagick separately
after installing lyx to solve the display problem.
Thanks, that helped a lot, so I think we tracked down the cause, to be fixed in
the next pkg iteration:
