I want to define a new key combination in my .emacs such that it will directly run the latex command, unlike C-c C-c Ret which gives me different options every time (like view). I am using xdvik for post processing and I don't need to run the view command each time I compile. Focusing on xdvik rereads the file, so there is no point.
Another problem: is there a way to remove the icon labels, which have been introduced in emacs 24? It is the main reason I am asking the previous question, since I have to go into some sub-menus to click the latex commands because the labels take unnecessary space on the window.
Thanks in advance
