You have a working LaTeX and can use xdvi on its own, can't you? LyX
needs it. --

Check the the following variables in /etc/lyxrc resp. ~/.lyx/lyxrc.

\view_dvi_command "xdvi"
\view_ps_command "gv"

Comment everything in the printer section out (for now).

BTW if you want to use .pdf instead of .dvi, set:

\view_dvi_command "killall acroread ; acroread $(basename $$FName .dvi).pdf"
\pdf_mode true

That way you'll only be able to print (to printer or .ps file) from
acroread, gv or whatever you use to display .pdf files. 

Also interesting: \show_banner false.

Hope that helps,
