After struggling with
AUCTeX installation under Windows, I was suggested here to use
ELPA and its automatic process to install the package.
Following this, everything went fine and I can now read, process, and export to pdf a
.tex source within
Also, I have available the
dvipng program and I can successufully reproduce the steps described here in the section dvipng setup.
However, it is the
latex-preview mechanism which I cannot get to work. Different things happen in
After finding a
LaTeX and the rest of menus are available, and as said the process of generating a
preview on toggle does not work correctly. I get the following error message:
LaTeX: preview-image-type setting 'png unsupported by this Emacs
I looked up the specific error string and got here, where it is suggested to change the output format from
pnm in the
preview-latex.el file. However, I cannot find this file!!!
I insert a
LaTeX fragment into an
org file (an equation), then with
C-c C-x C-l I should have a preview of the output overlayed inline, but I do not see any change in the buffer. Still, I get no error message even if the variable
org-format-latex-signal-error is set to
non-nil (which should signal an error in image snippet creation). All I see in the
minibuffer is the message:
Creating image...done. Use `C-c C-c` to remove images.
I made the
AUCTeX preview work...it involved downloading of dll and correction of launching command for - basically -
ghostview. There are few steps involved, so I plan to write about them as soon as I have a minute.
org-mode preview does not work as of yet, it just shows a white image so I'll have to investigate that.
