    Lyx install - help


    Hi,

    After installing lyx i was using it for a while but it couldnt output to pdf or dvi so i decided to uninstall and then install again. However after uninstalling

    $sudo pacman -Rs lyx

    the lyx application still appeared in my menu but i wouldnt open, now after reinstalling

    $sudo pacman -S lyx

    it still wont open and i dont know how to either fix the install or how to remove it.

    any ideas?

    Thanks

    Nick
