Sure, but from now on please make your requests to the eLyXer users
mailing list (in CC). Many LyX developers understandably do not want
to be bothered with details about an external package. I am leaving
lyx-devel for this message, but in any follow-ups please remove it.
For those of you who don't care about eLyXer please ignore the rest.

but removed it to make the code more uniform. I guess it should be

They are able indeed to show line numberings, but numbers do not
resume as you want. Also, I don't know what the chunk command should
do. Could you send a sample for each of these cases (the .lyx file is
enough) to me directly?
