1.) I wonder about the name 'preferences.txt'. In case this is wrong, look at
Help->About LyX->user directory
The preferences file should be in this directory
2.) Add the line there (After the line with 'Format 34'
3.) No need to reconfigure. You have to restart lyx though, so lyx can read preferences
4.) If that does not work, check the log-file 'configure.log' (in the same directory)
Should contain the lines
INFO: checking for the pdflatex program...
INFO: +checking for "pdflatex"... yes
