Regarding the latex issue, you need to have a version of Latex installed on your machine in order to be able to utilize LaTeX within Emacs to export PDFs.

On Linux machines, this is often labeled 'texlive' in your distribution's package manager, ex on a Debian or Ubuntu based Linux distribution: sudo apt install texlive

Example: I would like that every time "I see" a heading with a special TODO state, this heading is expanded. Should I keep reading the book to materialize this little idea or should I take different actions?

Buuut, if I take the .tex produced file and I open it with an external latex editor, the document is compiled into a decent PDF. How could orgmode generate a valid tex document but not to be able to produce its PDF?
