    LyX 1.5.3 on Gutsy

    These debs are for LyX version 1.5.3 on Gutsy (386). If they don't install, I won't be of much help as I these are the first debs I've ever built. However, you can feel free to post problems or questions here and I'm sure others can help.

    lyx_1.5.3-1_i386.deb
    lyx-common_1.5.3-1_all.deb

    Good Luck!

    Those .debs work fine for me, thanks for that

    EDIT: Just can't find a menu entry, I think your deb creation left out the .desktop file stuff... Oh well, firing up the command manually also does the trick

    Hmmm... that's odd. I do have a menu entry under Applications > Office. Not sure why it didn't work for you... I guess if I try and build more .debs I'll look up info on including the .desktop portion. Thanks for letting me know.

    Would it make a difference if you use KDE or GNOME? I just used the .debs a couple days ago to install Lyx on my other laptop, and it also has a menu entry under Applications>Office. I use gnome on both computers. I actually don't recall if I used checkinstall or not... I can't seem to find the instructions that I used when building the .debs. I remember following a link from the forums that had a step-by-step guide, but I sure don't remember where it was.

    Found it. Here's what I did to build the debs:
    1. Downloaded the three source files
    2. Code:
      dpkg-source -x *.dsc
    3. change into the resulting subdirectory
    4. Code:
      dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot
