Subject: Re: fullpage.sty replacement [WAS: Problem with LaTeX snippets preview]

Message-ID: <6137.1254206901@gamaville.dokosmarshall.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: Message from Carsten Dominik <carsten.dominik@gmail.com> of "Mon, 28 Sep 2009 22:10:51 +0200." <AF2BC4C7-B7FD-4012-9A34-A70016EA14F0@gmail.com>

My $0.02: 

Let me point out that a dependency on soul.sty was introduced in order
to deal with strike-through emphasis in the LaTeX exporter. And guess
where soul.sty resides (on Debian/Ubuntu): in the texlive-latex-extra
package. So it seems to me that replacing the use of the fullpage
package by its contents is not the best solution: it would be better to
document the dependency (and other such dependencies). Keeping the
dependency on fullpage.sty would also insulate org-mode from missing
future changes to it - however unlikely that event happens to be.

Also, the main difference between these two is that if soul.sty is not
present, then when you try to process the exported latex file, you get
an explicit error message that fingers the problem exactly, whereas
without fullpage.sty, the preview failed silently. If the latter failure
could be made visible, then the problem would be solved (and this
solution would cover other similar failures as well).
