For some reason I cannot view PDF files in
Supposedly if I open a PDF file in Emacs, it should automatically open in the
doc-view major mode. If it can't be opened in
doc-view, then there will at least be some error message.
But for me, opening a PDF file opens it in fundamental mode. If I use
M-x doc-view-mode then the mode-line shows
(fundamental docview) which indicates that the
docview minor mode is used, as I understand it.
That minor mode claims I can use
C-c C-c to view the document, but that does nothing, and leaves me in the "editor mode." I've checked the
*Messages* buffer, and there are no error messages. Here is a screenshot:
Here's what I'm working with:
- Emacs 27.1
- macOS 11.2.3 (Big Sur)
- auctex 13.0.4
The only discussion I've managed to find about this is specifically for Windows, such as here.
