I've been trying to use Emacs/AucTeX along with SumatraPDF to view my output. In particular, I would like to make the forward and inverse search work. I use Windows 10.
Every time I double click something in my pdf output, a new instance (or a new window) of Emacs opens. Once at least one instance has .tex file opened, the following instances give the following message:
Warning: desktop file appears to be in use by PID 5132. Using it may cause conflicts. Use it anyway? (y or n)
Regardless of my decision (y/n), I get new instances of Emacs with my .tex file open after every subsequent double click in my pdf output file.
I believe I should be redirected to a proper place in an opened .tex file in Emacs instead.
My current configuration
Here's what I added to my .emacs:
(setq TeX-PDF-mode t) (setq TeX-source-correlate-mode t) (setq TeX-source-correlate-method 'synctex) (setq TeX-view-program-list '(("Sumatra PDF" ("\"C:/Program Files (x86)/SumatraPDF/SumatraPDF.exe\" -reuse-instance" (mode-io-correlate " -forward-search %b %n ") " %o")))) (eval-after-load 'tex '(progn (assq-delete-all 'output-pdf TeX-view-program-selection) (add-to-list 'TeX-view-program-selection '(output-pdf "Sumatra PDF")))
My "Set inverse search" command in SumatraPDF:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\GNU Emacs 24.5\bin\runemacs.exe" +%l "%f"
Help will be greatly appreciated.
Disclaimer: I am new to Emacs -- sorry if my question is trivial.
