Readme for lyx-gc

A Grammar Checker for LyX and LaTeX. There is an online demo.

A more elaborate readme is found on the LyX-wiki

Dependencies

For full functionality you will also want the following software

##Installation

Clone or unzip the respository, for example:

mkdir ~/.local
cd .local
git clone https://github.com/gmatht/lyx-gc.git

Add this folder to your $PATH variable.

For example, for bash, add to file ~/.bashrc:
export PATH=$PATH:"~/.local/lyx-gc/"

###Note on installing Languagetool Currently, languagetool has no installer and is not included in any software repository. Suggested installation:

##Configuration Use LanguageTool as grammar checking in lyx-gc:

  • Adjust in the file lyx-gc/path/chktex.pl.JLanguageTool.pl:
    • Change the LANGUAGETOOL_PATH variable to the path where languagetool-commandline.jar is located.
    • Example: my $LANGUAGETOOL_PATH=$ENV{'HOME'}."/.local/LanguageTool-3.6/";

##Usage Start lyx using the lyx-gc script, then Menu->Tools->CheckTex.

This command should be run twice when LanguageTool is used as check.

##Keyboard shortcuts By default, the short-cut for buffer-chktex is M-e h (e.g Alt-e then h). You may wish to change this to F8 by creating a new bind-file, say $HOME/.lyx/bind/myShortcuts.bind and include one of the standard files, e.g.:

# include one of the basic flavours (cua or emacs)
\bind_file	"cua"
# add your own bindings (overwriting the included ones)
\bind		"F8" "buffer-chktex"

Then go to the preferences dialog and choose this file to be your bind-file. See KeyboardShortcuts for more information.
