I would like to see the compilation results after hitting C-c, however, AUCTeX always asks me to additionally hit C-l to swich to the log window and automatically scroll down. I would prefer C-c to include this step.

  • Do you have AUCTeX 11.88? Would you prefer instead to automatically open an overview of the errors and warnings? – giordano Jan 7 '15 at 0:40
  • Yes, 11.88, an overview would be even better than a full log. – Lenar Hoyt Jan 7 '15 at 0:42

Since AUCTeX 11.88 there a new errors and warnings overview (see also https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/185823/31416). To automatically open it after running a TeX engine set the variable TeX-error-overview-open-after-TeX-run to t. To do that, add the following code to your init file:

(setq TeX-error-overview-open-after-TeX-run t)

Here is how the overview looks like:

AUCTeX error overview, same frame

You can open the error overview whenever you want with M-x TeX-error-overview RET
