# JabRef and LyX

JabRef can send bibliographical reference to LyX by just pressing a button. For this, put in LyX Preferences > Paths > "LyXServer pipe" the line

\$HOME/.lyx/lyxpipe,

save and reconfigure LyX.

Then from JabRef select any reference (which has a Bibtexkey), press the LyX button, et voila! Of course, it is assumed, that you have inserted a BibTeX database in the file (or in a master file of the file).

This is for Linux. For other systems, pls check the respective variable definitions.

# xfig with LaTeX fonts

This is for me, to remember:

First solution:

1. Put in the LaTeX document:
`\usepackage{color}`
2. Start xfig with
``` xfig -specialtext -latexfonts -startlatexFont default```
3. Put the text you want in LaTeX code
4. Save and export als "LaTeX picture"
5. Input from the LaTeX document with
`\input exported.latex`

Result: Some slopes will not be exact and the patterns are missing.

For the best result there is the second solution:

1. Put in the LaTeX document:

`\usepackage{color}`

`\usepackage{epsfig}`
2. Start xfig with
``` xfig -specialtext -latexfonts -startlatexFont default```
3. Put the text you want in LaTeX code
4. Save and export als "Combinded PS/LaTeX (both parts)"
5. Be sure to have the LaTeX document in the same directory as the pstex_t and pstex files.
6. Input from the LaTeX document with
`\input exported.pstex_t`

That's it!
