I installed auctex via M-x package-install. I then added this line to my .emacs file: (require 'auctex). However, upon startup, Emacs complains that error: Required feature `auctex' was not provided. When I run in debug mode, I get the following:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (error "Required feature `auctex' was not provided")
  eval-buffer(#<buffer  *load*> nil "/home/koz/.emacs" nil t)  ; Reading at buffer      position 2277
  load-with-code-conversion("/home/koz/.emacs" "/home/koz/.emacs" t t)
  load("~/.emacs" t t)

I suspect I missed something that I should have added to my .emacs file, but I'm not sure what it is. Could someone help me out?

(require 'tex) instead of auctex – lawlist Apr 4 '14 at 20:44
Thanks, that fixed it! – Koz Ross Apr 4 '14 at 21:12

The library that needs to be loaded is called tex rather than auctex. Therefore, the following line of code is used instead of (require 'auctex):

(require 'tex)
