I am having trouble in using org-exp-bibtex.el on debian sid. I was
unable to install bibtex2html through the package manager because of
dependency problem with ocaml-base-nox-3.12.1. I then installed ocaml
separately, and compiled bibtex2html from source. Now, bibtex2html is
working fine from the command line.

But when I export a file having bibtex citations, orgmode complains
saying "Execution of bibtex2html failed". It seemed to me that orgmode
was unable to find bibtex2html. bibtex2html is installed in
/usr/local/bin/bibtex2html. Since it was not being found, I also
myself created a symlink to /usr/bin.bibtex2html. But that does not
help either.

My orgmode version is 7.9.2

Could anyone suggest what to do.

Thanks,

Vikas

As an amendment to my previous note, normally, if the shell inside emacs
can find the executable, then emacs should be able to find it too. There
are some abnormal situations however (e.g. defining PATH in .bashrc or
equiv - yecchh) that would cause the shell to find it whereas emacs would
not be able to. So Yagnesh is correct in asking for more checking.

The problem was with my setup of bibtex2html. 

I needed to change /usr/share/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf and replace "openout_any =
p" with "openout_any = a".

I found this at https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=8140

Thanks everyone for help.

As Nick said in his previous mail, if the shell has executable in its path
doesn't ensure emacs to find it.

in your emacs,
M-: (executable-find "bibtex2html")

to see whether emacs can find the executable, if it doesn't, add the following
in your .emacs

(add-to-list 'exec-path "/path/to/your/bibtex2html/")

Hope that helps.,
Thanks

Also, the latex export works fine. So bibtex and my #+BIBLIOGRAPHY are
ok.

What does 'which bibtex2html' show?

Depending on how it is started, emacs may have a different idea of PATH
than bash. Check in emacs with (getenv "PATH") or by starting a shell
M-x shell and trying to run bibtex2html from there. org-exp-bibtex.el
does not hard code the path afaict, so if the above succeeds, then it
should succeed as well.

Sorry, that was a typo. I am able to directly run bibtex2html from the
bash shell prompt. ECHO $PATH shows /usr/local/bin. So that should not
be a problem. But somehow org-exp-bibtex.el cannot find it. I wonder
if org-exp-bibtex has the path hard-coded into it! Or something else?

Just a couple of obvious suggestions; are you sure bibtex2html is in
your path when you launch Emacs?  Maybe adding /usr/local/bin to your
PATH will do the trick.  I would put such modifications in
~/bash_profile (assuming you use bash as shell), logout and login before
trying again.

The symlink you created, is it really /usr/bin.bibtex2html or is that a
typo?
