Maybe dbus should not be expected?
It shouldn't, right.  Looking at the code, I can't see how that can
happen.  Evince DBUS support should only be active when DBUS support is
compiled into emacs, and DBUS is actually running on the system.

what do you do in order to trigger the error?  Do you call
`TeX-evince-sync-view'?  That shouldn't be offered as possible View
command on systems where DBUS is not available.

What version of AUCTeX are you running, and how did you install it?  And
could you please also show the complete backtrace?  Unfortunately, you
have snipped everything which would allow me to determine which code in
AUCTeX triggered the error (well, I could at least narrow it down to two


Well, and given that it works with the Emacs distributed by Debian, I
can only think of some incompatibility.  There have been major changes
with respect to cl structs which are used by package.el, so I suggest
you reinstall the auctex ELPA package.  Version 11.87.7 is extremely
outdated anyway.


Hi Tassilo,

as mentioned in previous thread --sorry for posting twofold-- (require 'auctex) triggers the error.

       (getenv "DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS")


So some dbus seems running (?)

Attach dbus-error.txt, when evaluating tex.el - pasting in here failed.

It refers to pos 41488, the end where "(defvar TeX-view-program-list-builtin " is done
