I have Lyx (1.6.whatever) installed, and all the requisite system language fonts. My locale is set to "en_US de" via the LINGUAS variable in make.conf.

However, Lyx simply refuses to use German settings and spellings, no matter how I set the language.

For example: I set the document language to German. This should automatically preface lines with the "Part" style with the word "Teil" (thus, "Teil I," "Teil II", etc.) It does this the first time I create the line, but reloading the file changes it to "Part." Second, the language setting is shown on the bottom as "English." Lastly, the "ß" character is output to PDF as "SS," which is incorrect (it shows correctly in the edit window). Everything is underlined in blue, as if it is misspelled.

This all suggests that Lyx is somehow unable to use German language settings. Can somebody kindly guide me through fixing them?

Thanks,

EE

'emerge -pv lyx' sez:
Code:
[ebuild   R   ] app-office/lyx-1.6.5  USE="X cups latex nls -debug -dia -docbook -dot -html -monolithic-build -rcs -rtf -subversion" LINGUAS="de -ar -ca -cs -en -es -eu -fi -fr -gl -he -hu -id -it -ja -nb -nn -pl -pt -ro -ru -sk -tr -uk -zh_CN -zh_TW" 11,317 kB

Total: 1 package (1 reinstall), Size of downloads: 11,317 kB


So the de LINGUAS flag is set properly. Anything else here that might be causing problems?

Oh, and I fixed the ß character: had the wrong character encoding.

Spellcheck is still bizarre, as are auto-formatted part, section, subsection, etc. headings.

Thanks for the help!
