I have a weird thing going on with emacs on Fedora 29.

Once in a blue moon, my Emacs will go HA! you cannot export to LaTeX with the "error": end of file during parsing during. However, if I move the file to my Mac with macOS Mojave with the same version of Emacs (26.1) and org-mode, and try to export the file, I do not get the error. Any ideas what can cause this issue and how to solve it?

The packages I have installed:

  • auctex
  • flycheck
  • flyspell-corect
  • flyspell-popup
  • json-mode
  • powerline
  • magit
  • rust-mode
  • are the versions of org also the same? – andrej Apr 14 at 11:56
  • yes, they are, I should have written that as well. – Lars Nielsen Apr 14 at 11:58

    One possible source of the error message is a missing closing parentheses. The last word during is a bit strange though. Is that really the full error message? Turn on Options -> Enter debugger on error until the error happens the next time. If you cannot determine the error from that backtrace yourself post the backtrace here. Have a look into the `*Messages*' buffer for more information about the problem (messages immediately before the error). The error could happen through some autoloaded defective package. – Tobias Apr 14 at 13:32

    Is the problem reproducible with emacs -Q and M-x package-initialize? Note, after emacs -Q you need to execute M-x package-initialize. Otherwise you are potentially dealing with a quite differently configured emacs. The downside is that one also needs to know the list of installed packages for the reproduction of the problem. – Tobias Apr 14 at 13:39
  • Yes I can reproduce – Lars Nielsen Apr 14 at 16:06
