AucTeX as my latex major mode. I have been trying to setup the minor mode
latex-pretty-symbols which is available from melpa. I did:
;; Install from package-list-packages (require 'latex-pretty-symbols) (add-hook 'LaTeX-mode-hook (lambda () (message "Show that my code ran") (latex-unicode-simplified)))
What's supposed to happen is that font-lock should render
\alpha = 1 as
α = 1 in a latex buffer.
Unfortunately, this doesn't happen in AucTex. Instead I have to either interactively call
latex-unicode-simplified or manually evaluate M-:
(latex-unicode-simplified) from the buffer.
Is there a way to programmatically send keystrokes after a mode is loaded? Is there some other way to tell auctex to do what I want ? I have been trying to solve this for 2.5 hours now so any help is welcome.
NB 1: This problem only happens when I use auctex. When I deleted auctex and
(add-hook 'latex-mode-hook 'latex-unicode-simplified) then the problem got resolved. But I can't stop using AucTex.
NB 2: This problem is not resolved through file local variables, I tried to put a
% eval: (latex-unicode-simplified) but that did not work
NB 3: The package author is using bitbucket, with issues disabled.
