Hi!
Until I messed up my site-lisp directory, I
conveniently had a LaTeX drop down menu within
emacs. I didn't really use it that much it did
provide me a list of keystrokes that were useful
when working with a latex document. Now only a TeX
drop down menu appears. I used to be able to run
C-c C-c and then type LaTeX to compile my document.
Now when I do this I am taken to a windows that
looks exactly like my terminal instead of LaTeXing
my document automatically. Other AucTex commands
don't seem to work well either.

C-c C-e should allow me to insert an environment
but all it does it end the environment I am in
whereas previously I call insert a new environment
of my choice.

My /usr/share/emacs/22.2/site-lisp directory is
empty through a silly move by yours truly. I am
using Ubuntu 9.04.
Looks like you're not using auctex at all but the built-in
tex-mode. Why don't you just reinstall the auctex-package via the
package manager?


Thanks Anselm. I tried this earlier but it did not seem to fix the problem.
Indeed it does seem like emacs is not detecting auctex at all. Not sure how
to proceed.


But if you did this then your site-lisp subdirectory would no longer be empty. You should be able to re-install by downloading tarball or zip here:

http://www.gnu.org/software/auctex/download-for-unix.html

Also it seems that if you still have something like the following in your .emacs, then that should produce errors because of missing files:

(load "auctex.el" nil t t)
(load "preview-latex.el" nil t t)

(setq TeX-auto-save t)
(setq TeX-parse-self t)
(setq-default TeX-master nil)
(add-hook 'LaTeX-mode-hook 'turn-on-reftex)
(setq reftex-plug-into-AUCTeX t)

I am on w32 but I think these issues are platform independent.

Thank you for your help.

I seem to have a few too many emacs directories:

/usr/share/emacs22/site-lisp
which has ess and auctex files in it

/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp
which also has ess and auctex files in it

/usr/share/emacs/22.2/site-lisp
which is an empty folder.

The weird thing is that ESS is still working fine while auctex seems to not be.

Lastly, a newbie question. Is the .emacs file just a text file located in your home directory and does emacs look for it automatically there. That probably should be a new thread but it is pertinent to my issue.

Thanks alot for your help.

Sam
