Table of contents

  1. Installation
    1. 1.1  Latest Version
    2. 1.2  Development Version


If you are running a recent version of openSUSE just open a terminal and type:

sudo zypper in lyx

this will install a version that was shipped with the initial released distribution.
Note: These packages are only updated for security reasons so you will get a antiquated version.

An up-to-date version of LyX is also available in Tumbleweed, openSUSE's rolling distribution.

Latest Version

If you want to run the latest lyx release, there are two possibilities:

1. Click on one of the following links and follow the steps:

Install LyX on openSUSE 13.1

Install LyX on openSUSE 13.2

Leap 42.1 has the latest (2.1.4 as of writing) in the distribution itself, so adding an extra repo is not necessary.

2. Alternative use the commandline and add the Publishing repository from the openSUSE Build Service (OBS) to your configuration:

sudo zypper ar --refresh http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Publishing/openSUSE_13.2/Publishing.repo
sudo zypper in lyx

the command above shows how to add the repository for openSUSE 13.2, please adjust the url if you are using an other release.

Development Version

The latest git builds (dev=qt4 and qt5) can be found here:
