I find the instruction from enter link description here as given below

\title{How to create a glossary}

\date{ }


The \Gls{latex} typesetting markup language is specially suitable 
for documents that include \gls{maths}. 




But I cannot get glossaries working. I know I need to run 'makeglossaries' or 'makeindex', but how could I do in aquamacs latex mode.

I tried C-c index

it shows

Running `Index' on `test2' with ``makeindex test2''
Couldn't find input index file test2 nor test2.idx.
Usage: makeindex [-ilqrcgLT] [-s sty] [-o ind] [-t log] [-p num] [idx0 idx1 ...]

So how could make this glossaries package working?

And the version of software I am using is Aquamacs 3.3 GNU Emacs 25.1.1

In my version of Aquamacs, I use C-c glossaries, which appears to run makeglossaries.

My version information is Aquamacs 3.3 GNU Emacs 25.1.1 (x86_64-apple-darwin14.1.0, NS appkit-1344.72 Version 10.10.2 (Build 14C109)).
