Well, I have the markdown binary preinstalled on my system in /usr/bin/markdown.

Would do you get when you do "which markdown" in your terminal? .. Looks like you do not have that binary preinstalled.

I suppose I thought it was obvious that I don't have a "markdown" executable. I should have been more explicit about that.

In that case, download the Markdown source script from, extract the .pl from that and place it in one of the folders in the environment PATH variable. Or add that dir to the PATH var and restart emacs.

It's funny that none of the markdown preview docs even mentions this. Does everyone assume this is always there?

I have the following in my config.

    (when (executable-find "")
      (setq markdown-command ""))
If everything went fine, you should see "" when you do C-h v markdown-command.

Yup, that worked fine, thanks.
