lyx 1.6.6.1
« on: July 11, 2010, 10:21:37 pm »
hata_ph,

The lyx people screwed up the spell checker in 1.6.6, which you kindly put in the repositories a while ago.  Lyx has come up with 1.6.6.1 to fix that.  I tried to install from source but failed.  When you get a chance could you put 1.6.6.1 in the repositories?

Thx

Thanks!

It installed just fine.  BTW, I did not see 1.6.6.1 in the testing repository when I checked yesterday.

Great!

Quick question before I try to install 1.6.7.  Should I first delete 1.6.6.1?  If so, any suggestions on how to do that?

Thx

Can't hurt to uninstall it first.  Just open a terminal in the directory containing the .tlz fox lyx 1.6.6.1 the as root run
removepkg ./lyx-1.6.6.1*tlz
