Re: info node missing(auctex-devel)

    It seems that simply adding info files to the INFOPATH directories is not enough for the info node to show up by C-h i m auctex and we need to modify some file to let emacs know there is a new info file. I confirm this by cheating emacs by renaming the to the name of an existing info file which can be display correctly by C-h i(for example, ada-mode).  If I do that, I can see the info of auctex under the original node's name (eg. Ada-mode). So when a package is installed, which file does it modify to let emacs know a new info filed needed to be added? Thanks.

Then try something like this very early in your init file instead:

(setenv "INFOPATH" "/opt/share/info:$INFOPATH" t)
By adding this line,  the correct location of the info files are in the Info-directory-list. However, I sill could not find the node AUCTeX under emacs info mode.  And it cannot be located by C-h i m auctex. Is it hidding deep down some other nodes. But I can see the info by using the linux command line: info auctex.
