I am trying to write a project proposal by using org-mode. And when I change the #+LATEX_CLASS variable to something different org can not export to pdf.

So, I wondered how can see list of latex classes that are seen by emacs in ielm ?

    Could you provide some information on what 'ielm' is? Normally you can see the latex classes org mode knows about by C-h v org-latex-classes – Reign of Error Mar 16 '18 at 12:42
  • ielm is the repl for emacs-lisp like in the python. I didn't know that we can query commands by pressing C-h v. But still I do not see org-latex-classes. I am using org-mode 9.1.5 (If you want to see ielm => M-x ielm) – Kadir Gunel Mar 16 '18 at 14:41
  • OK, thanks. If I open ielm and just type org-latex-classes it gives me the list I would expect. What do you get? – Reign of Error Mar 16 '18 at 14:48
  • I get nothing! :( – Kadir Gunel Mar 16 '18 at 16:53
  • It depends what you mean by 'nothing'. If the variable is undefined, then something is wrong with the way org-mode is getting set up. If the variable is defined but empty, then you need to define something, as shown in the manual. – Reign of Error Mar 20 '18 at 11:56
