|Subject:||[AUCTeX] Installation of auc-tex|
|Date:||Mon, 12 Sep 2005 21:46:55 -0400|
I've installed auc-tex as per the instructions given and have run into some problems.
1) It turns out that Cygwin doesn't recognize the 'make' or 'make install' command, though msys does. I found this out by trying to use cygwin first, before downloading msys.
2) In INSTALL.Windows, the instruction
"9. For GNU Emacs, the recommended way to activate AUCTeX is to add the
following line to your `.emacs' file:
The configuration for Windows systems is probably not quite
fitting. Instead of loading `tex-site.el' in that manner, you
might want to load `tex-mik.el' (for MikTeX) or `tex-fptex' (for
fpTeX) instead. Those will lead to somewhat more appropriate
values for your system. You can always use
M-x customize-group <RET> AUCTeX <RET>
in order to customize more stuff, or use the `Customize' menu."
doesn't seem to work for me. First, is ".emacs" correct? Should it be "_emacs"? Also, operating under this assumption when adding the following lines of code
(setq load-path (cons "~/elisp" load-path))
and then rebooting doesn't give rise to the command menu upon opening a .tex file as promised. I should note that the _emacs file came from http://www.ssc.wisc.edu/~dvanness/auctex.htm and so may be flawed in other ways. The reason I used theirs is that my installation of emacs didn't seem to come with an _emacs file (as demonstrated by searching for _emacs on the main drive after having installed emacs).
Any hints you can offer would be great.
Thanks in advance,
