What now?
Bug in seminar.cls:seminar.cls has a bug that prevents proper working with the "a4paper" option. The option "a4" works. The bug prevents use of seminar as doctype from LyX together with the geometry package, as LyX inserts: \usepackage{geometry} \geometry{verbose,a4paper,tmargin=1cm,bmargin=1cm,lmargin=2cm,rmargin=2cm} and subsequentely, LaTeX reports an ! Undefined control sequence. error If you need the geometry package, you can either handinsert these lines into the preamble (instead of using the doctype tab for geometry option) \usepackage{geometry} \geometry{verbose,a4,tmargin=1cm,bmargin=1cm,lmargin=2cm,rmargin=2cm} % replace the margin values with your favourites or apply the following patch to seminar.cls  tetexbase2.0.2/texmf/tex/latex/seminar/seminar.cls.orig Wed Dec 10
