# Tex2LyxInvokedFromLyx

<< | Page list | >>

To invoke `tex2lyx` from LyX do the following:

• Install `tex2lyx`
• Include in your PATH the directory where `tex2lyx` is, so that LyX can find it
• Inside LyX, in Edit -> Preferences -> Converters, choose LaTeX->LyX and, on the right side, write `tex2lyx -f \$\$i \$\$o` in the Converter field

This assumes that you have at least LyX 1.3.6, and that you upgraded `lyx2lyx` as explained in LatexToLyx.

To invoke `tex2lyx` from LyX 1.3.5 and older in Windows do the following:

• Install `tex2lyx`
• Create a tex2lyx.cmd file with the following content:
```    @echo off
set PYTHONPATH=xxxx

%~dp0tex2lyx.exe -f -sysdir %~dp0..\resources\lyx %1 > temp.lyx

%PYTHONPATH%\python %~dp0..\resources\lyx\lyx2lyx\lyx2lyx --to 221 --output %2 temp.lyx
del temp.lyx
```
Be sure to substitute xxxx with the correct path for the directory containing python.exe (e.g. C:\Python23 or C:\tools\Python24, etc).
Save this file in the same directory as tex2lyx.exe
• Include in your PATH the directory where tex2lyx.cmd is, so that LyX can find it
• Inside LyX, in Edit -> Preferences -> Converters, choose LaTeX->LyX and, on the right side, write `tex2lyx.cmd \$\$i \$\$o` in the Converter field
