I'm looking to write my thesis in Lyx as I'm impressed with all the document handling features.
I have found, what is called, a Latex template for my university's thesis here: http://www.cs.columbia.edu/mice/c/d.php?d=109
The template contains a set of .tex, .bst. and .sty files as well as a simple Makefile. Running
make does produce a nice pdf that looks exactly like a bare bones thesis would.
Now how can I get Lyx to play nice with all of this? For one, I don't see anything for dealing with Makefiles.
Am I shooting for the moon?
