I try to open a PDF in Skim from Emacs (via Auctex's View command) on MacOSX Mavericks 10.9.2.
When I open Emacs.app by double-clicking or through Spotlight, it fails. Nothing happens. There's no message and no error. But, when I open Emacs from Terminal (~$ open /Applications/Emacs.app or ~$ /Applications/Emacs.app/Contents/MacOS/Emacs), it works. What's going on here?
In both cases the same Emacs.app is running, the exec-path is the same, and the same command is used: /Applications/Skim.app/Contents/SharedSupport/displayline 25 "test.pdf" "test.tex". These files and test.synctex.gz are in my home directory. So, what's different between launching from Terminal and launching by double-clicking?
This used to work before I upgraded to Mavericks, so I wonder whether this is a Mavericks issue. Has someone been able to open Skim from Emacs on MacOSX Mavericks? Has someone seen something similar?
I tried the latest stable Emacs (24.3) from both Homebrew and emacsformacosx.com each time with the same result.
Below is some Homebrew information:
