Re: [Orgmode] LaTeX Export problem: cannot open load file: org-latex

Hi Matt,

Thanks, you answered the question. When I renamed the file "org-export-latex.el" to "org-latex.el", modified the Makefile accordingly, rebuilt and reinstalled, it worked.

I think there's a problem with the stable distribution (org-6.25f.tar.gz) in that it contains the unrenamed file "org-export-latex.el". Someone may want to look into this.

Anyway, many thanks for helping me out.

Best regards,

With org-mode version 6.25f, the file org-export-latex.el was renamed to
org-latex.el. Off the top of my head, I can think of a couple of things
you might check:

1. If you look in the lisp subdirectory of the org distribution you
  downloaded, can you confirm that org-latex.el was byte-compiled as a
  result of the make process?

2. Check the directory where you installed the new org files (e.g.,
  /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp or somewhere else) to see if org-latex is
  was copied to that directory.

I'm sure others will be along with more concrete advice sometime soon.

Hope this helps,
