Does a command like
xpdf -remote foo -raise file.pdf 2
work if you issue it from the command line?

Do you have parsing enabled as mentioned on the first page of the AUCTeX
manual?

### Re: xpdf -remote %s -raise %o %(outpage) not functioning properly


I enabled parsing and it now works. Thank you.
However, there is now a new issue.
After editing a file, compiling, and viewing, I am always asked:

"File foo.pdfsync changed on disk.
Reread from disk? (yes or no)"

I have edited auctex/style/pdfsync.el as described here:
http://www.mail-archive.com/auctex-devel <at> gnu.org/msg05817.html

(replaced lines prefixed with - with those prefixed with +)

However, nothing has changed.

I apologize for the questions. I am brand new to emacs.

Thank you.

Note that this was solved differently in the CVS repository of AUCTeX.
So it might be better to get a CVS checkout (with the disadvantage that
it does not provide a stable user interface).

You have to recompile the .el file or at least delete the old .elc file.

### Making preview-latex output darker

Is it possible to make the output from preview-latex darker, without
turning off the anti-aliasing? I ask because even if I define preview-
scale-function to a value like 1.25, so as to make the output bigger,
I still find it hard to read as it is quite light.

Many thanks,

Jason

### Re: A proposal for an extension of AucTeX functionalities

Ralf,
I used flyspell and it indicates repeated words: thank you.
Then I tried to load automatically flyspell by inserting the following
line in my .emacs file (I saw it in the Learning GNU Emacs O'Reilly
book)
(setq-default flyspell-mode t)
Well, it does not charge the default (American) dictionary: is it due
to the fact that I also have the Italian dictionary installed?
Thank you for your attention and best regards
Daniele Tampieri

### How to tell LaTeX-fill-buffer not to reindent the verbatim regions.

How to tell LaTeX-fill-buffer not to reindent some predefined regions .
I have defined <code> as a verbatim environment so that anything between
\begin{code}
line1
line2
line3
line4
\end{code}
will be treated as verbatim text.   The problem is that whenever I use LaTeX-fill-buffer command, it automatically re-indent everything inside, and change the structure that I want to keep in the verbatim region, e.g.
\begin{code}
line1 line2
line3 line4
\end{code}
Can someone give me a solution to avoid this problem? Thanks.

Tuan

Is this with TeX PDF mode on or off?

It's with PDF mode on.

### Activating and configuring Flyspell (was: A proposal for an extension of AucTeX functionalities)

In my case this does not work and you probably don't want Flyspell mode
active in every buffer.  If you only use it in LaTeX mode, you can use
something like
for activation.

I have no idea which dictionary is picked by Ispell (which might be used
as a backend for Flyspell in your case) per default, but this can be
controlled by the variable ispell-dictionary'.  I'm no expert in spell
checking in Emacs, so if you have trouble you best start by reading up
on Ispell in the Emacs manual (See (info "(emacs)Spelling") <-- Type
C-x C-e' here.) and if that does not help you ask in the gnu.emacs.help
newsgroup/mailing list.

Read up on LaTeX-indent-environment-list' in the AUCTeX manual.
