Here is my example mwe-1.tex

local variable declaration from within this file is

%%% Local Variables:
%%% mode: latex
%%% mode: orgtbl
%%% End:

when I execute this command in a shell:

emacs -q --eval '(load-library "org-table")' mwe-1.tex

The actual mode is latex but not orgtbl.

Did I miss something ?


Using mode for anything but the major mode is deprecated. To enable minor modes, use eval:

%%% Local Variables:
%%% mode: latex
%%% eval: (orgtbl-mode 1)
%%% End:

See (info "(emacs) Specifying File Variables").
