Install the prerequisites, i. Open the MSYS shell or a Cygwin shell and change to the directory containing the unzipped file contents. More on configuration options can be found in the detailed installation instructions below. If the configuration script failed to find all required programs, make sure that these programs are in your system path and add directories containing the programs to the PATH environment variable if necessary. Move to the front in the line this might require scrolling and add the missing path including drive letter, ended with a semicolon.

If there were no further error messages, type In case there were, please refer to the detailed description below. However, meeting the prerequisites might require more work than on some other platforms, and feel less natural. If you are experiencing any problems, even if you think they are of your own making, be sure to report them to auctex-devel gnu. Windows is a problematic platform for installation scripts.

The main problem is that the installation procedure requires consistent file names in order to find its way in the directory hierarchy, and Windows path names are a mess. The installation procedure tries finding stuff in system search paths and in Emacs paths. It is quite unlikely that the scripts will be able to identify the actual file names involved. File names containing shell-special characters like spaces or backslashes if you prefer that syntax need to get properly quoted to the shell: the above example used single quotes for that.

Ok, now here are the steps to perform: You need to unpack the AUCTeX distribution which you seemingly have done since you are reading this. It must be unpacked in a separate installation directory outside of your Emacs file hierarchy: the installation will later copy all necessary files to their final destination, and you can ultimately remove the directory where you unpacked the files.

Line endings are a problem under Windows. The distribution contains only text files, and theoretically most of the involved tools should get along with that. However, the files are processed by various utilities, and it is conceivable that not all of them will use the same line ending conventions. If you encounter problems, it might help if you try unpacking or checking out the files in binary mode, if your tools allow that.

The latter is slower and larger the download size of the base system is about 15 MB but comes with a package manager that allows for updating the tool set and installing additional packages like, for example, the spell checker aspell. You need a working TeX installation. Another much more extensive system is TeX Live which is rather close to its Unix cousins. A working copy of Ghostscript is required for preview-latex operation. Examining the output from gswin32c -h on a Windows command line should tell you whether your Ghostscript supports the png16m device needed for PNG support.

Perl is needed for rebuilding the documentation if you are working with a copy from Git or have touched documentation source files in the preview-latex part.

Now the fun stuff starts. If you have not yet done so, unpack the AUCTeX distribution into a separate directory after rereading the instructions for unpacking above. Ready for takeoff. Start some shell typically bash capable of running configure, change into the installation directory and call.

All automatic detection of files and directories restricts itself to directories below the prefix or in the same hierarchy as the program accessing the files.

If you have a central directory hierarchy not untypical with Cygwin for such stuff, you might want to specify its root here. If you think that you need a different setup, please refer to the full installation instructions in Configure.


Install AUCTEX

It lets you process your source files by running TeX and related tools such as output filters, post processors for generating indices and bibliographies, and viewers from inside Emacs. AUCTeX lets you browse through the errors TeX reported, while it moves the TextCursor directly to the reported error, and displays some documentation for that particular error. This will even work when the document is spread over several files. Apart from these special features, AUCTeX provides a large range of handy Emacs macros, which in several different ways can help you write your documents fast and painlessly.

Want to add to the discussion? But I was not aware the manual itself pushes the rewriting. Each element is a cons cell, whose car is the macro name, and the cdr is non-nil or nil, depending on whether a pair of braces should be, respectively, appended or not to the macro. The difference between TeX-insert-macro and TeX-electric-macro is that space will complete and exit from the minibuffer in TeX-electric-macro. See Automaticfor more information. Default compilation command only on first run? Thanks but my current setup with Skim works as I want.


Viewers are normally invoked by pressing C-c C-c once the document is formatted, which will propose the View command, or by activating the respective entry in the Command menu. Alternatively you can type C-c C-v which calls the function TeX-view. The viewer is started either on a region or the master file, depending on the last command issued. This is especially useful for jumping to the location corresponding to point in the viewer when using TeX-source-correlate-mode. This decision is based on the output files present in the working directory as well as the class and style options used in the document.
