Wow, as usual thanks Nick, great help and insights.

Say, LaTeX and xpdf and poppler and Okular are all great software--suggest you try out xournal too:

apt-get install xournal

--shows .pdfs and many tools for editing .pdf's

Also, you're well aware of the Emacs/ELisp tools for .pdf's (https://github.com/politza/pdf-tools); but, suggest you install and tinker with CPAN/Perl's pdf-tools--well worth investigating.

So when-let is not defined above, and it is not defined by emacs, so you
got to get the definition from somewhere. Go back to the link and you'll
see further down that the OP complains about the same thing. The
solution seems to be

   (require 'subr-x)
