comment How to add more sty and cls locally?
@UlrikeFischer yup, if I do the same thing but with bash -c 'echo "$TEXINPUTS"', the TEXINPUTS prints out as expected. It has double colons though, i.e. where the bits of the path are concatenated I get something like: .:/home/wvxvw/.emacs.d/elpa/auctex-11.88.7/latex::./_build/latex:

@UlrikeFischer I've updated the question with the printout of the directory structure (with some irrelevant files omitted).

comment Automatically scale vertical rule to fit the text height
Thanks! Although in the end, I had to make the box even smaller and shift the ruler by some small negative value to the left, since what happened is that the whole box would overlap with a regular paragraph text (you don't see it in your example since you don't have paragraph text following the section).

comment Automatically scale vertical rule to fit the text height
There's a bit of a problem with this code, though it doesn't look like it's the tikz problem (or so I think), the box containing the sections is actually too wide, so, for some section titles the text runs on top of the rule. Would you happen to know how to remedy this?

comment Automatically scale vertical rule to fit the text height
I'm getting Use of \@array doesn't match its definition. I think it doesn't like the line with @{}> in it, but I don't know what it does, so I can't try something else instead.

@HarishKumar as the text of the section (it can span several lines). I'll add an image to make it stand out.

@ChristianHupfer it was basically it, updated to have some fake data.

comment SWI Prolog documentation generator tags environment: tag not allowed
@cfr in case you wanted to: github.com/SWI-Prolog/packages-pldoc/blob/master/pldoc.sty here's the .sty. Its purpose is to support the code generated by Prolog (programming language) documentation generator. One way of using the generator is to produce TeX suitable for \input, so that's unlikely that they don't want me to use other packages.

comment SWI Prolog documentation generator tags environment: tag not allowed
@cfr ouch, I had to scroll the log upwards more... For some reason this particular .sty defines a whole bunch of commands defined elsewhere... for instance \secref, \appref, \figref, \mod... Is there any reason someone would want to re-define commands like this? It's hard to believe this is a coincidence.

comment SWI Prolog documentation generator tags environment: tag not allowed
@ChristianHupfer technically, the .sty isn't my. Should I write to the maintainer to alert them to the problem, or is this something that I can remedy locally (without having to modify the said .sty)?

comment Proper left alignment in math environment
@egreg Sorry, you are right, I confused several documents I made to test it. Yes, &= gives the result I wanted. Technically, this can be the answer.

comment Proper left alignment in math environment
@egreg Oh, I was searching for \DeclareMathOperator, just couldn't remember what the command was! Thanks a lot. Re' &= - sorry, no, that gives ugly spaces on the right of the equals sign and the rest of the equation is aligned to the right... \tolerance and other \usepackage commands are generated by Emacs. I might be able to tweak it, but I don't know yet what it does, so I'll probably let it be for now.

comment Kashida-like Hebrew typesetting
@AlanMunn Yes, that package gave the idea that it might be possible, but it's different in Hebrew. In Arabic there's a special character, which you just add more of it, and you get longer letters, e.g. (normal book كتاب book with a very long "t" كتــــاب) But Hebrew Unicode doesn't seem to have such character (or maybe I'm wrong, and would be happy to find that out), or maybe I need to use some special font that has longer characters.

comment Kashida-like Hebrew typesetting
@AlanMunn mmmm no :) This isn't about layout, it's about elongated letters (Hebrew, like Arabic can be written in such way that emphasized letters have their horizontal bars stretched). This doesn't really have use in modern language, but if you wanted to write something that looks traditional, that would be the way to do it.

comment Is there a way to change the case of digits?
@cfr the Properties in Ocular at least give odd font names, something that looks like BFNCDC+LMRoman10-Regular (and there are about half a dozen of them). I don't think it refers to the part of the "Times New Roman" name, because the actual font doesn't look like Times. This must be the kind of outlines used.

comment Is there a way to change the case of digits?
@cfr would you kindly tell me where in the log file it is? I do usually have it handy open in the other buffer, but I'm not sure what to look at? I'm using latexmk with pdflatex to generate a PDF. I'm not sure about a minimal example... I'm not determined to use memoir or any other template, the minimal example would be then a... string of digits? That seems too trivial to me.

comment Is there a way to change the case of digits?
Oh, thanks. I use memoir package, and the font used in it looks like Bodoni... I don't know where to find that info to be honest. But to my best knowledge those are just different glyphs, so they have their dedicated codepoints in the character table the font implements. So I'd expect not every font to implement them, but would expect the procedure to be the same for all those which do.

@egreg thanks! Even though that didn't actually work for me, but googling it I found that there's \oldstylenums{} which did work.

PS. The documentation appears to be installed in /usr/share/doc/.

comment texdoc finds no results for any package
@cfr Nope, it isn't. The documentation isn't there. That directory was created by ESS as far as I can tell. I also ran texdoc as root, that didn't change anything (except the "Permission denied" message went away). Yum did install that package, I can find its content and look inside etc.
