Dr. Hellmut,

Please forgive the extremely late response.

'apt-get autoremove lyx' would not have deleted all (system)
configuration files 'apt-get purge lyx' would have. So you may want to
try that.

Also, you say that you searched .lyx, have you tried moving .lyx 'mv
.lyx DOTlyx' and then starting lyx? This should get you back to a
default state leaving your old state in DOTlyx if you want to recover

Hope that helps.

Love in Jesus Christ, John Alfred Nathanael Chee
