Thanks for your answer. I wrote a mail to the computer department so
that they run the command. I'll keep you informed if this works or not.

Thanks again,

I'm using Auctex for quite a long time now on my personal laptop
(cygwin+xemacs+auctex) and I especially like the preview option. At my
office, we have received new computers (PC on linux fedora). I asked
the team that manages the computers to install the latest version of
auctex for Xemacs. It seems to be installed fine as when I open a TEX
document, I have the LaTeX and Preview menus, etc... But when I try to
preview the document, I get the following error:
" Display geometry unavailable: Symbol's function definition is void:
"Symbol's function definition is void: previous-single-char-property-change"
The same document opens fine on my laptop.

My computer knowledge is quite low, but if you can give me some
explanations on how to make it work, that would be fine...

The files prv-xemacs.el and preview.el have been compiled with an
incompatible version of XEmacs seemingly, a developer version that
_has_ those functions available.

Quite unfortunate.  Since our XEmacs packages are supposed to also run
under XEmacs 21.4, it would be prudent to have them created using
21.4.  Reiner?

Anyway, what your department can do is to run
xemacs -batch -f batch-byte-compile prv-xemacs.el preview.el
in the directory where those files are located.

This should address the problem.
