Categories: LyX dependencies<< | Page list | >>
The aim of this page is to list required dependencies and problems for packagers of LyX.
LyX 2.3.x series need Qt >= 4.8, widely tested with 4.8. For Qt 5 we suggest Qt 5.6 (widely tested).
LyX 2.2.x series need Qt >= 4.5, suggested is 4.8. Qt 5.x support is still experimental (for windows we suggest at highest 4.8.4).
LyX 2.1.x series need Qt >= 4.5, tested with 4.8. Qt 5.x support is still experimental.
LyX 2.0.x series need Qt >= 4.2, widely tested with 4.6/7/8. Be prepared that although is LyX compilable with older Qt's it also unstable with them.
LyX 1.6.x series need Qt >= 4.2, 4.5 is optimal (all features enabled).
LyX 1.5.x series need Qt >= 4.1
Avoid Ghostscript 8.70.
