I need help using the
View command in Auctex running in emacs. This is essential for viewing pdfs and without it I can not make TeX documents. In my emacs file I have the following (which was created by M-x customize-variable):
(custom-set-variables ;; custom-set-variables was added by Custom. ;; If you edit it by hand, you could mess it up, so be careful. ;; Your init file should contain only one such instance. ;; If there is more than one, they won't work right. '(TeX-view-program-list (quote (("Preview" "\"open -a Preview.app %o\""))))
Now I open up a
.tex document and enter
C-c C-c (I have already compiled):
Command: (default View)
I hit enter
Emacs gives this default command:
View command: dvi2tty -q -w 132
I hit enter and emacs says:
View: done. but displays nothing in a pdf reader!
dvi2tty is intended for text only devices, and the command actually creates a new buffer in emacs which attempts to display the pdf file (it is very messy). Anyway, if I replace
dvi2tty -q -w 132 with `open -a Preview.app %o' (I am running Mac os X 10.8.4 and Preview is the name of the default pdf reader) then Preview opens the pdf!
- How do I change the default
dvi2tty -q -w 132to
open -a Preview.app %o?
All help is greatly appreciated!
