Before you do anything else, make sure that you have the latest version of TeXinfo installed. It is available by ftp from `prep.ai.mit.edu'. You need at least version 2.16.
First, you should consult the file `tex-site.el' and edit it to fit your local site. Be sure to get the following two variables right, or you will not be able to complete the installation procedure:
User Option: TeX-lisp-directory
The directory where you want to install the AUC TeX lisp files.
User Option: TeX-macro-global
Directories containing the sites TeX style files.
You probably also need to change
TeX-command-list to make sure
that the commands used for starting TeX, printing, etc. works on your
TeX-printer-list to contain the printers available
at your site.
Next, edit the file `Makefile' in the AUC TeX directory to set up paths for installation of the files. Be sure that
TeX-lisp-directoryin `tex-site.el'. If you unpacked AUC TeX in that directory (
TeX-lisp-directory), you should set
aucdirto `.' in order to avoid copying the byte compiled lisp files. If you already have an old version of AUC TeX in that directory, you must delete it before installing the new version. Otherwise the wrong version of the files may be loaded during the byte compilation.
Then type make all, and the whole thing will be `made'. If this succeeds, type make install, and it will be installed.
To extract information from your sites TeX macros, type make
install-auto. This will only work if you have set
TeX-macro-global correctly in `tex-site.el'.
Tell the users on your site to insert
in their `.emacs' file in order to use AUC TeX.
Users who know the older keybindings from version 6.1 may also want to insert
in their `.emacs'
