Versions for Cygwin

  • If you use Cygwin on Windows, it may be more convenient to use the cygwin binary, since latex, python, etc. are all available from cygwin. You should download lyx-2.0.2-cygwin.tar.gz, un-tar it using Cygwin (not native) tools, and follow the instructions . See LyXOnCygwin for more information.


In case ftp.lyx.org is down, please try one of our ftp mirrors listed on main page.
