* Cannot install 6.29c on Ubuntu 8.04 with emacs 22.1.1

  To: emacs-orgmode

I am trying to install 6.29c onto Ubuntu 8.04 with emacs 22.1.1 and
not getting past go. I have had 6.06 running successfully on the same
system with the same emacs for a year and cannot understand why 6.29c
is not succeeding. I am installing in a home directory ~/org-6.29c/
I have tried both as an ordinary user and with sudo; the extracts below
refer to ordinary user.

Below is:

1. Extract of the warning messages that scroll past after the `make'
command. (Several hundred lines) `khave' is my user name.

2. Extract from .emacs file

3. Extract from Makefile

On starting up an .org file, emacs does not load the Org menu or recognize
the sectioning structure, etc.

It seems that no files have gone into the target dirs
($(prefix)/share/emacs/site-lisp
and $(prefix)/share/info).

I'm a moderately sophisticated user of (La)TeX (20 years) and emacs (12 years)
but don't have much experience with make and make install. I'll be
very grateful
for advice.

I don't know the answer to your problem but some of the following might help:

  1. Why is there no (require 'org-install) in excerpt from .emacs?
  2. Where is 6.06 getting loaded from (check using locate-library
org-install <RET>)?
  3. Try (add-to-list 'load-path "~/org-6.29c/lisp") instead of the
version with cons.
  4. Check set up section (2.1) from http://doc.norang.ca/org-mode.html

Thanks Manish, that's a considerable help. I'm very glad to be told
about the norang site.
My .emacs didn't have (require 'org-install) because this was the file
before running make.

Org-mode loads now and mostly works, but I cannot export to latex.
When I do C-c C-e l
(or L or p) I get the message `Loading tabify ...done' and emacs
freezes. No cursor movement,
no response to input.  Doing C-g unfreezes but there is no .tex
output. HTML export works fine.

Somebody asked about this problem back in January at
http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-orgmode/2009-01/msg00104.html
but there was no solution. Does anyone know what causes this?

The *Message* file follows. Chas

I tested Latex export on the latest git and it works flawlessly; most likely
it's somthing to do with your specific setup.  Again, I don't know the
solution to your problem but I would start with creating a sample .org
file and a minimal .emacs loaded manually after starting Emacs with -Q.  Keep
adding/removing from/to the .emacs till you find the offending setting.  May
be someone more knowledgeable might have a better clue.  Sorry.

Hi Charles,


You'll need some LaTeX environment installed. On Debian (and thus Ubuntu
IMO), install texlive everything that package pulls
in. Plus the packages you might use in the future.

Synaptic will help here.

You have to put it there: make won't do that.

What does M-x org-version say?

You might want to try a procedure like this:

o Start emacs without any initialization files with emacs -Q.

o In the *scratch* buffer, type

  (add-to-list 'load-path "/path/to/org-6.29/lisp")

where you use the correct path for your installation and type
C-j after the closing paren. That evaluates the expression.

o Still in the *scratch* buffer, type

  (require 'org-install)

and type C-j after the closing paren.

o What does M-x org-version say now?

o If everything has gone OK, try the LaTeX export now. Does it work?


If the above works, then it is probably the case that
you are getting pieces of the org-mode that's part of the emacs
package that came with debian. There have been several posts of this
kind of trouble (usually with Ubuntu) that have required hunting down
all the places where the distro has squirreled away org-mode
initialization files (e.g. /etc/emacs/* which appears prominently in
your log above) and expunging them.
