As I got several off-list questions about where to get synctex on
GNU/Linux, I might as well reply on-list ;-)

I'm running Arch Linux with TeX Live 2009.16776, and the only thing I
had to do to get synctex working was run pdflatex like this:

        pdflatex -synctex=1 foo.tex

You should also get the same effect by adding


to the preamble, or something like

        #+LaTeX_HEADER: \synctex=1

in your org-mode file. As for Ubuntu, if the TeX Live distribution
there is up-to-date (synctex was added in TeX Live 2008), I believe it
should work without any configuration necessary.

Note: if you were previously using the "pdfsync" package, you may have
to remove it from the preamble, also there was talk on the Ling-TeX
list of some programs not being able to handle file names with spaces
in them.
