For technical reason, I had to set for using emacs as my working environment, as I am able to type directly some Unicode signs that otherwise I cannot code in with Texworks or TeXmaker. At this point, I would like to use xelatexmk in emacs. I have seen some of the actual threads about Latexmk, but I am not really sure how to implement xelatexmk in emacs anyway.

My emacs is the last version in Windows (emacs 23.3) and I am using TeXlive. My .emacs is quite basic and I can post it if it needed. I am asking this question as Ancient Historian working with emacs. While I am only asking for a simple setting, I am also raising the point as they might be other users trying to use emacs and latexmk with xelatex, so any answer will be retrievable on line.

Maybe you can use the solution of stackoverflow.com/a/7811232/789593 if you replace "latexmk" with "xelatexmk"? Note that there are some problems with that solution which can be solved by using the solutions of stackoverflow.com/questions/7885853/… – N.N. Dec 21 '11 at 18:46
@N.N. I will try the solution you said. I have seen it, but the solution there also mentions some changes to .latexmrc file, which I imply it going into my directory, but where? I confess that I have supposed to find a simple "hack" about it, like for Texworks for instance. – Roberto Gozzoli Dec 21 '11 at 18:54
The latexmkrc can be put in for instance your home directory or the current working directory. It can also be called via the -r option. – N.N. Dec 21 '11 at 19:02
stackoverflow.com/questions/3124273/… might also help. – N.N. Dec 21 '11 at 19:06
Did you have any luck with the solutions I suggested? – N.N. Feb 3 '12 at 19:03
