arXiv’s magic LaTeX elves know when you’re uploading a PDF made by LyX and make you upload the LaTeX source. This is a pain. But here is how to deal with it…
File > Export > LaTeX (pdflatex)this will spit out a bunch of
.texfiles in your document directory (one if you just have one file, more if you have use subdocuments (
.texfile: a. remove everything before
\batchmodethat seems to suppress output from the arXiv TeX compiler and
\def\input@pathetc which will be the wrong directory. b. if you used sub-documents, make sure the file names are correct in each
\input, LyX seems to attach the directory names and some other nonsense to the front of the names. c. make sure the path in
\bibliographyis correct, again LyX gives the absolute path, which arXiv doesn’t have. d. if you are using multiple input files, rename your main file to
ms.tex, as this will get processed first.
.bibfiles etc to the places they are referenced in the
.texfile you just edited.
bibtexetc) and hopefully get a working PDF out of it.
.bblfile see here b. any journal-specific
.clsdocument classes c. any journal-specific
.stysyle files d. any journal-specific
AutoTeXdoesn’t work, go back to “add files”, fiddle with the LaTeX and reupload a new
I switched back to
biber as I was getting errors but I can’t confirm that was why.
