No image output from Maxima in Babel


After recently learning about Babel, I've been working my way through
some of the examples in the various languages' documentation, and I've
run into a problem with Maxima. I evaluated this code, taken from the
documentation at,
with only the filename changed:

#+name: 3d-maxima
#+header: :file maxima-3d.png
#+header: :exports results
#+header: :results graphics
#+begin_src maxima 
  programmode: false;

It returns this:
#+RESULTS: 3d-maxima

The file is empty, though.

Running the code from within the Maxima REPL produces the expected

I'm running Org version 20160201 on GNU Emacs 24.4.1 with Maxima 5.34.1
on Debian Jessie.

Problem with threeparttable and sidewaystable, or: change request for (org-latex-tables-centered) behaviour

* Problem with centering sidewaystable and threeparttable

#+LATEX_HEADER: \usepackage{threeparttable}

I am referring myself to an archived post about using "threeparttable" 
with org-mode syntax(!), without having to use a LaTeX code block:

I am having trouble achieving the following goals:
- booktabs table (just mentioning, do not think that matters)
- threeparttable in org-mode syntax
- floating environment --> place threeparttable inside "table environment"
- table centered! -> here is the problem!

** threeparttable

floating threeparttable example (non-floating would not be a problem):

#+CAPTION: Here goes the caption
| An example of a \tnote{a} | threeparttable | centered table \tnote{c} |
|                         1 |              2 |                        3 |

\item[a] To float one has to put threeparttable (TPT) in a table environment
\item[b] With default (org-latex-tables-centered) on TPT gets exportet 
in "center" environment
\item[c] "center" environment and TPT clash, no document export

zip for odt export under windows

Hi guys,

I need to use the odt exporter on a windows box, and i read in an archived post that I need to install infozip.
Infozip seems to be unavailable. How have others configured for export?

inline code and minted


I see that

src_coq[:exports code]{nat}

exports to (latex export with minted)


which does not work as inline code here. The following would work,
however, with a recent minted:


I have two questions:
- should we support this and generate this code?
- in the meantime, I created a macro that does this for latex, but it
does not work for html (it exports the “src_coq” string verbatim):
#+macro: coq  <at>  <at> latex:\mintinline{coq}{$1} <at>  <at>  <at>  <at> html:src_coq[:exports code]{$1} <at>  <at> 
Why is this macro wrong?

Custom agenda 'tags-todo' sorting by scheduled date not working

Hi guys,

I created a custom agenda view with tags-todo, which I like to sort by 
scheduled date.

(add-to-list 'org-agenda-custom-commands
       '("u" "Next actions" tags-todo "+PRIORITY=\"A\""
  ((org-agenda-overriding-header "Critical")
   (org-agenda-prefix-format " %-5:c")
   (org-agenda-sorting-strategy '(scheduled-down))
   (org-agenda-todo-ignore-scheduled 'future)
   (org-agenda-tags-todo-honor-ignore-options t)))

But sorting comes out wrong: It's not sorted by the scheduled date. In 
fact, it's not sorted at all, but seems to keep order of 

Anybody help? Thanks a lot in advace!! Orgmode is great :)

[bug] org fails in org-sparse-tree for date filtering


it's that time of year where I remove (i.e. archive) old entries in my
various agenda files.

One way I use to identify what I want to archive is to use
org-sparse-tree, selecting [b]efore-date.  If I do so, giving for
instance "1 jan 2015" as the date, I get an error with backtrace in the
attached file.

Org is up to date from git.

org-pdfview-open doesn't work anymore

I've been using org-pdfview (from to have org-mode open pdf

Is it a bug in Org-mode or should I report the issue to the org-pdfview

Strange problems when exporting asynchronously in beamer mode

I recently upgraded to the latest git version and every asynchronous
export to pdf in beamer mode fails whereas the asynchronous mode has no
problem. I didn't change anything in my setup, and it was working fine

With the following Org file (the first lines are to ensure that the
latest git version of Org is used)

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :exports none :results none
  (add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "~/info/emacs/org-mode/lisp"))
  (add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "~/info/emacs/org-mode/contrib/lisp"))
  (setq org-export-async-init-file "/home/wilk/configuration/elisp/org-export-async-init.el")
  (setq org-export-async-debug t)

* Test
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Calling (in emacs -Q) an asynchronous export to Tex for Beamer (C-c C-e
l b) gives the following error
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
Unknown "nil" back-end: Aborting export
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

There is no error for an export to TeX in LateX mode (C-c C-e l l), of
if the export to TeX in beamer mode isn't asynchronous.

Confusion about org-refile-targets-verify-function


I'm using Emacs 24.5.1 and Org-mode 8.3.3 (15d591e) and try to filter
the output of my refile targets. For me, every headline that contains a
subtree with the name "tasks" is a project. Therefore, I would to filter
my refile targets to those which contains the name "tasks".
