Ernst, do you mind sharing where you saw that adding the path change to ".bashrc" was the "right" thing to do.

Just so we can get that "advise" removed from the Internet. It is a very common problem

See my other answer.

The important thing here is how exactly you start emacs.

It will work from the command line but not from a menu. Emacs does not use the bash shell when making system calls.

Yes, Mosè
I have doubts.

I use bash.
Consequently, in .bashrc I wrote
export PATH=/usr/local/texlive/2014/bin/x86_64-linux:....:$PATH
where .... is some other segment of path and
/usr/local/texlive/2014/bin/x86_64-linux is the location of the tex-binaries.

As i wrote earlier, when trying to latex from within emacs
using auctex, the message was:

Running `LaTeX' on `l2r' with ``latex  -interaction=nonstopmode "\input"
/bin/sh: latex: command not found

ok then i found, that one can change the shell
and i wondered whether this is the problem.

The result was:

Running `LaTeX' on `l2r' with ``pdflatex  -interaction=nonstopmode "\input" l2r.tex''
/bin/bash: pdflatex: command not found

and as you see: i managed to change shell and i also changed to pdflatex.
And I removed the path from my .emacs-file.

pdflatex  -interaction=nonstopmode "\input" l2r.tex
 on the shell works fine.

Whats wrong now?!


Thankx Mose and Lars,
this was it:
i just added
export PATH=/usr/local/texlive/2014/bin/x86_64-linux:/home/ernst/SysAdmin/Maven/apache-maven-3.2.1/bin:$PATH
to .profile (what i added previously to .bashrc).

Thank you both.
