it looks as if you do not have TeX installed.

Look for MacTeX at

and if you ask me, download only the Smaller Download from

If you have homebrew installed, do something like

	brew lyx basictex

which will install both.

Once MacTeX is installed you need to run LyX through

	Tools -> Reconfigure

again, so it sees what is available.

Browsing the LyX website and the Wiki will also be helpful.

If you have issues with English email me (and Stephan?)  in German
directly, off list.

greetings, el
