Use Insert -> Object -> Formula. Use the Help window, under Contents -> Formulas for tips on using them.

Inserting a formula should open up a formula editor, with a text box at the bottom of the screen. You can enter basic expressions like "y=2x", or more complex ones with keywords for certain symbols, like "y=left lfloor x right rfloor". Right-clicking in the text box gives you a bunch of choices on what to insert. While editing a formula, use Tools->Catalog (or the Greek Sigma symbol on the toolbar) to insert Greek or other symbols.

I went to insert->object->formula and there is no textbox at the bottom of the screen. Also no formula editor has opened up.

I'm using 1.9.79. I got it from Linuxpackages.net and installed it using installpkg on Slackware.
