Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 995245
error in plain-tex.el
Last modified: 2014-03-11 00:20:20 EDT
Description of problem:
When visiting a plain TeX file, get the error trace
Debugger entered--Lisp error: (void-variable latex-mode-abbrev-table)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Simply visit a plain TeX file.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start emacs (making sure that AUCTeX is being used for editing TeX files).
2. Visit a plain TeX file.
3. Get the error msg shown above.
The plain TeX file should be visited without incident.
As per http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/115870/void-variable-latex-mode-abbrev-table, this has been fixed in the development version. Simply change line 145 of plain-tex.el from
(setq local-abbrev-table latex-mode-abbrev-table)
(setq local-abbrev-table plain-tex-mode-abbrev-table)
You'll also need to issue M-x byte-compile-file on that file.
Still not fixed in emacs-auctex.noarch 0:11.87-7.fc20 . Every time fedora upgrades emacs-auctex I have to fix this by hand.
emacs-auctex-11.87-8.fc20 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 20.
