Trinity Rules: LyX and LaTEX Setup

The preamble turns on line numbers for proofing; remove those lines to turn them off.

\usepackage{ragged2e}
\usepackage{lastpage}
\usepackage{url}
\usepackage{dvipost}
\usepackage{breakurl}
\usepackage[labelfont={bf,sf}]{caption}
\usepackage{listings}
\usepackage{color}
\usepackage{lineno}
\linenumbers
\renewcommand{\bottomfraction}{0.7}
\pagestyle{fancyplain}
\fancyhf{}
\lhead{\fancyplain{}{Trinity College Home Robot Contests}}
\rhead{\fancyplain{}{2011 Rules}}
\lfoot{\fancyplain{Modified \today}{Modified \today}}
\cfoot{Copyright 2010 by Trinity College}
\rfoot{\fancyplain{\thepage\ of \pageref{LastPage}}{\thepage\ of \pageref{LastPage}}}
\RaggedRight
\dvipostlayout
\dvipost{cbstart color push Blue}
\dvipost{cbend color pop}

There’s no obvious documentation for the Document → Settings  → PDF Properties → Addition Options values, but these make the crossref links look better:

urlcolor=blue,linkcolor=blue

For what it’s worth, LyX is still the right hammer for this job, although when something goes wrong, the error messages are truly oracular…

Memo to Self: no line numbers in the final version!
