I would like to enable pabbrev automatically for .org files. At the moment, I have to manually run M-x pabbrev-mode on the buffer I'm editing.

My .emacs regarding pabbrev :

(require 'pabbrev)
;; TAB does not work without this in orgmode
(define-key pabbrev-mode-map [tab] 'pabbrev-expand-maybe)

Sorry for the noob question and thanks in advance !

org-mode will automatically invoke functions that have been added to org-mode-hook, so you can just add your own customizations to it, eg:

(defun my-org-mode-settings ()
(add-hook 'org-mode-hook 'my-org-mode-settings)
