Hi Carsten,

The message displayed in the buffer is as follows:
"Creating image for buffer...done. Use `C-c C-C' to remove image"

Ha ha, I think I solved the problem. I have to switch to math mode in org i.e., $\alpha$ not \alpha then C-c C-x C-l works likes a charm.

Yes, this will only work for things that are identified as
quoted LaTeX, i.e. things in LaTeX math delimiters,
and also full environments like


Is the documentation unclear about this?  What documentation
should be added where so that you would have seen it?

Sorry Carsten,

What I meant to say was that org-export-with-Latex-fragment was set to t. The problem still continues :(

Should I try a different value ?


Can you see anything in the *Messages* buffer after you tried `C-c C-x C-l'
on a LaTeX fragment?

If it says "failed to Failed to create png file from .....

then try to go to this directory and to process that file by hand,
first with latex file.tex and then with dvipng file.dvi.
Does that work?

Does that mean doing this did solve your problems, or does that mean you already had it set to t? Please take the time to reply with enough information so that I can figure out what you are talking about.

Hi Carsten,

I tried this but for some reason it didn't work. More specifically, I was unable to visualize my latex snippet. Could this be a limitation of carbon emacs or maybe I didn't configured org properly ?

Do you have dvipng installed?

Dear all,

Is there a way to visualize latex snippets on the fly using auctex's latex-preview ?

It would appear the only way to do this is select latex- mode once I have finished completed my notes, it would be nice to do this on the fly when I am drafting articles.

Not with preview-latex, but Org has a similar mechanism built-in.
