Yes, why not.  Possibly someone of the Ubuntu Emacs maintainers can
figure out what's the problem.

To make testing simpler for them, could you please check if you have the
same issue when you use auctex 11.87 from ELPA (M-x
package-list-packages RET) instead of the git version?

I finally found a solution to this problem I was reporting back in September. Dominique Unruh kindly sent me the following solution which worked in my case:


you posted recently in bug-auctex because TeX-evince-sync-view did not work.
I had the same problem, perhaps my solution helps you:
The problem was that TeX-evince-sync-view was considered as a name for an executable command.
This is because TeX-command-list was configured in my .emacs to use "TeX-run-discard" to call the viewer "View".
It needs to be TeX-run-discard-or-function.
To fix the problem, I just had to just replace this.
(Or simply remove the customization of "TeX-command-list".)

Best wishes,

I do not know how the "TeX-run-discard" setting ended up in my .emacs. I have not actively altered it, so I suspect it is an Ubuntu default.
