As the question suggest, I am trying to set up the
auto-complete package for writing papers. I have also installed
ac-ispell. So far it seems more or less useless, mostly because it is way too slow. Suggestions take several full seconds to appear.
Here are the relevant lines that I currently have in my init, which are based directly on the recommendations in the documentation for these two packages:
(require 'auto-complete-config) (ac-config-default) (add-to-list 'ac-modes '(org-mode text-mode LaTeX-mode)) (custom-set-variables '(ac-ispell-requires 4) '(ac-ispell-fuzzy-limit 2)) (eval-after-load "auto-complete" '(progn (ac-ispell-setup))) (add-hook 'git-commit-mode-hook 'ac-ispell-ac-setup) (add-hook 'mail-mode-hook 'ac-ispell-ac-setup) (add-hook 'org-mode-hook 'ac-ispell-ac-setup) (add-hook 'text-mode-hook 'ac-ispell-ac-setup) (add-hook 'LaTeX-mode-hook 'ac-ispell-ac-setup) (global-auto-complete-mode t)
In case this helps, the resulting value for
(ac-source-ispell ac-source-ispell-fuzzy ac-source-abbrev ac-source-dictionary ac-source-words-in-same-mode-buffers).
If you've had better luck with this then I have, please help!
