I thought I should try this out and kill another weird quirk I have
with my system.
I thought I should finally try to get rid of my .emacs file and go
with the build in defaults for Aquamacs Emacs (then try transitioning
to the new Aquamacs) because on sync I get an error "28:36: execution
error: File Emacs wasnâ\200\231t found." Well, the syncing puts the
cursor at the right spot, so I'd been ignoring it. Ditching my hack of
a .emacs file which I don't even understand (It's stuff I've copied
and kept through multiple emacs versions and not documented) does
indeed get rid of this weird behavior. However, when I try to run the
new Aquamacs, AucTeX isn't loaded. If I put the old .emacs file back
and use Aquamacs, it now loads (go figure).
Summary: AucTeX isn't loading by default when Aquamacs loads a TeX
file (it's using the basic emacs TeX mode). I don't know that is't
just me because I tried another account and got the same lack of
AucTeX. Is this included in the new Aquamacs setup yet? (Am I writing
about a fake bug?).
It does seem faster in sync, btw.
