How to start LyX with debug flags to produce diagnostic output.

You tell LyX to produce diagnostic output by giving a command such as

 	lyx -dbg kbmap

to produce diagnostic output regarding custom keyboard definitions. In order to see a full list of all the available flags to -dbg, simply execute:

 	lyx -dbg

Also see the LyX man page for more details on available command line options to LyX.

Here are the flags that are available in LyX 1.3.5:
