Re: [O] org-plus-contrib fails to compile

I found this will most often occur because you have org loaded

install a new version. 

I was seeing this quite often. Once I re-arranged by init file 
to ensure that I can do a package upgrade before org is loaded, 
all works fairly reliably. 

An easy way to 'fix' the problem is to just delete the 
org-plus-contrib directory from your ELPA directory, then 
restart emacs. Your emacs will probably downlload and install 
the package during startup. Just make sure your org setup comes 
after your package setup. 


Thanks Tim and Bastien,

The 'fix' works - will check the sequence of events in init.el

[O] org-plus-contrib fails to compile

2018-05-01 Thread Glyn Millington


Good morning list!

Emacs 25.3.1 on Linux

For many upgrades now (over the last year or so) when I have tried 
to upgrade org-plus-contrib with the package management system 
pointed at the Org repository, the package is installed but 
compilation fails with a massive (23.6MB!) backtrace  which begins 
like this:



Debugger entered--Lisp error: (void-variable This) 
 eval-buffer(# nil 
 "/home/glyn/.emacs.d/elpa/org-plus-contrib-20180430/org" nil t) 
 ; Reading at buffer position 5 
 load-with-code-conversion("/home/glyn/.emacs.d/elpa/org-plus-contrib-20180430/org" 
 "/home/glyn/.emacs.d/elpa/org-plus-contrib-20180430/org" nil t) 


None of the lisp files in the package are compiled.

Can anyone point me to likely sources of the problem (my own 
cluelessness goes without saying! ) ?

Re: [O] latex markup in org?

2014-06-01 Thread Glyn Millington
Steven Arntson ste...@stevenarntson.com writes:

 I've been learning to export from org to latex (to pdf), and have had
 great success. There's a simplification to the process I'd like to make,
 though, if it's possible.

 Right now I use files: file.org and filestyle.sty. The .sty gives
 the latex-specific instruction, and I point to it from file.org with a
 line of #+LATEX_HEADER: \usepackage{filestyle}. This works great, but
 I'd love to have just one file, not two, to keep things simple.

 So I tried putting the contents of filestyle.sty near the top of file.org
 inside of #+BEGIN_latex and #+END_latex, but it doesn't quite work. It
 incompletely works, which is perplexing...

 I'd appreciate any ideas about this--can it be done?

I'm sure it can, but not that way!

As I understand it, blocks like this 

#+BEGIN_LaTeX
\marginpar{\color{red} \tiny \raggedright
\vspace{18pt}
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit, sed diam
nonummy nibh euismod tincidunt ut laoreet dolore magna aliquam erat
volutpat.}
#+END_LaTeX

work where they are and not file-wide.

For file-wide instructions you need to put 'em in 

#+LATEX_HEADER lines.

Exactly how to do that will depend on the precise contents of
filestyle.sty.

 Glyn: thx alot for the example. That does work but then i really hate
 manually having to add the '-' at the start of each page and then also
 indenting each line, is there a solution for that?

My problem is that I know a little LaTeX and less lisp!  I would just do
this the hard way.  If I was driven to automate it slightly, then not
being aware of an org-mode solution I would use latex, like this.

1. Make a file, xebar-bullets.tex, which contains this latex snippet

\begin{itemize}
\item Start typing here 
\item This is the next item you can make these lines as long as you like!!
\item
\item
\item
\item
\item
\item
\item
\item
\item
\item
\item
\item
\item
\item
\end{itemize} 

save it somewhere safe, where you store templates etc

2. Write a function in your .emacs or init.el file like this


(defun xebar-bullets ()
This inserts the LaTeX \itemize environment into a document - LaTeX will
take care of the wrapping of each item for me
(interactive)
(insert-file-contents /home/xebar/templates/xebar-bullets.tex))

Save this. Evaluate it.


3. Add a key-binding, again in .emacs or init.el, to call this where you
want it.  s-d is the Super key plus d, or pick another - again evaluate
it.

(add-hook 'org-mode-hook
  (lambda ()
(local-set-key (kbd s-d) 'xebar-bullets)))

Then when you want to add a list of instructions as in your sample doc,
just hit s-d and start typing at the first item.  You can make the lines
as long as you like, and when you export, LaTeX will deal with 'em!  If
you need more items, just add them in.

I've spelled this out because you said you didn't know about LaTeX -
forgive me if it is more info than you need.

 Hi,
 I'm running today's org with a recent emacs-snapshot in a

  Yes, I have the same symptoms as Matt.
 GNU Emacs 24.3.1 (x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 3.8.2)
 Org-mode 8.1.1 (the latest ELPA package fails in the same way)
 xdg-open works on the command line but not through the org-export

  I see the same problem.  But I think this might be an Emacs

 Glyn, can you just tell me what you set org-file-apps to? I wasn't

 What DEs do you use, Matt, Glyn?

Xfce here too, on Arch linux.



 I am on XFCE.  For me xdg-open calls the internal function (defined in
 the script), open_xfce.  Inside that function, exo-open is called.
 This is XFCE specific.  When I replace exo-open with say, evince, and
 open a pdf file; start-process-shell-command works; with exo-open it
 doesn't.  I can repeat this for html files with Firefox.

 I would like to know if other desktop environments has the same issue:
 kde-open (KDE) and gvfs-open (Gnome, Mate, etc).  So to test, just
 open a directory with pdf/odt/html files in dired and run either of
 them asynchronously with .

You have downloaded the tarball - good.

You have unzipped it somewhere sensible - maybe in an .emacs.d directory

Then you went 

cd org-8.0 (or whatever it is called)

and did make - did that go wrong?

If it did there is a chance you don't have to tools on board to build
it. This command should get them for you:

apt-get build-dep package_name

where package name  is the name of your emacs package.

Try make again

If it runs this time then fire up emacs and add these line to your .emacs
file - you will of course need to edit the path.

(setq load-path (cons ~/path/to/orgdir/lisp load-path))
 (setq load-path (cons ~/path/to/orgdir/contrib/lisp load-path))

Restart your emacs and you should be good to go.

Hi Alan,

1. Compile the .texi source
 i.e. makeinfo org.texi

(You should find org.texi in the doc directory)

That will result in a file simply called org

2. Put it into the right directory - can be  /home/glyn/info
3. Use install-info to edit file
  
   ie - in ~/info 

   install-info org dir

   where dir is the local info header file :-)   

I also have this in my init.el

(setq Info-default-directory-list (cons /home/glyn/info/

 Let me be clear, it's not about me.  I am a nobody who likes to troll.

Confession noted.  In which case it IS all about you. 

 It is about others (as well) who deserve a explicit word of thanks.

So far you have totally failed to offer any word of thanks - either to
Bastien or to any one else. [1]

 Why cannot people thank Nicolas Goaziou for the parser and exporter
 framework and also for most of the exporters.

Why can't you?

 People are under the mistaken notion that it is the maintainer who
 does the most or important work.  It is this mistake I am
 endeavouring to correct.  Obviously I am failing.

You are failing because the 'mistaken notion' you are trying to correct
does not exist.

 I've attached the .org file and the .tex file that is generated. I'd
 appreciate if someone could point out what I'm missing.


Does adding

(require 'ox-beamer) in .emacs help?

 Dear all,
 Jambunathan (like anyone) is free to fork the code, to build a

 has commit access to Emacs, so that should even make things easier
 for him.
 This is free software, and the ability to fork is what makes sure we
 are all focused on software, not on personal issues.

 No thanks.

 I am not actively looking for a new maintainer right now

 I withdraw my offer.  It will be fun to see poeple doing -1s.  That
 will be fun.

This is becoming somewhat surreal! But if it gives you pleasure .

Jeff Horn jrhorn...@gmail.com writes:

 Dear orgsters,

 I've had a few nagging questions that I didn't think warranted too
 much discussion, but my curiosity has gotten the better of me this
 evening.

 Firstly, I notice some of the regular posters wrap org source in the
 #+ style org wrappers, others use a --8--cut-here---8-- or some
 similar horizontal-rule, and yet others use some sort of vertical
 quoting:

 .
 | like this or this
 .__

 My first question is two-fold: 1) how did you come to use this style
 for quoting code in your replies, and 2) mind sharing the macros or
 letting us know what packages you use that help make your e-mails look
 tidy?

boxquote.el 


http://www.davep.org/emacs/boxquote.el

[Orgmode] Org-beamer and beamer overlays

2010-08-26 Thread Glyn Millington

Good Morning :-)

I'm having trouble getting beamer overlays to work properly when
producing slides via org-mode. This may well be due to my not
understanding the documentation!!


I can only get this to work by dropping down into LaTeX - which on this
scale is pretty painless - but feel sure there must be a way to do this
org too.  Can anyone show me how? 

Below are the headers for my beamer-slide template and a frame with
overlays which works.

If it helps, this is Emacs-23.2.1 and org-mode 7.01h

With thanks


Glyn
