Greetings.  I'm trying to learn about Org-Mode.  My goal is mainly to learn to
use the Babel extension, but I'm trying to get a good feel for Org-Mode before
I do that.

I've been having some difficulties with inconsistencies between the behavior
described in Org-Mode tutorials and the behavior of Org-Mode on my system.
(And yes, I have read the FAQ about this; please bear with me.)

I'm running Emacs 23.2.1 on a Fedora 14 linux (64-bit) system.  This version
of Emacs came with Org-Mode 6.x installed.

Having read about the rapid evolution of Org-Mode, I downloaded the latest
stable version, 7.5.  I've appended the Org-related portion of my .emacs file.
It appears to me that my local (7.5) version of Org-Mode should supersede the
version (6.x) that came in the Fedora package, i.e., based on the position in

This made things a little saner, but it didn't eliminate the inconsistencies.
I was afraid that, despite the above, there might be some interplay between
the original Org-Mode and the version that I downloaded, so I removed the
entire org directory:


Is there something else that I can/should do to make sure that the original
Org-Mode is really gone?

Here are a couple of the inconsistencies to which I've been referring:

    (1) When I use C-c C-t to mark a task as DONE, no timestamp appears.

    (2) When I use the construct:

            [[URL] [description]]

        the line does NOT collapse to:


        when I add the closing bracket, and if I export to HTML or PDF, I
        get the whole ugly line, brackets and all.

Please understand that I don't have any burning need to solve these exact
problems.  I'd just like the tutorial material to work as advertised on my

Thanks for any advice you can provide.
