I don't know why in an org buffer, where company-math-symbols-latex and company-latex-command backends are added to the backends list and company is activated, the command company-math-symbols-latex doesn't show any completion, eg. after typing \om where at least \omega is a relevant completion.

The command company-complete-common show me some LaTeX's command completion, but no LaTeX's symbols.

How do I get symbols completion ?

That is my org hook foc LaTeX completion :

  (defun my-latex-mode-setup ()
    (setq-local company-backends
        (append '(company-math-symbols-latex company-latex-commands)
    (local-set-key (kbd "C-z TAB") 'company-math-symbols-latex))
  (add-hook 'org-mode-hook 'my-latex-mode-setup)

Thank you

To complete latex symbol in org-mode you need an additional line.

(setq company-math-allow-latex-symbols-in-faces t)
