« on: April 04, 2010, 08:53:37 pm »
Hello world! is my first post in the forum!   I'm a happy Vector Linux user. I have an old laptop (Presario 700, amd duron and 256MB ram...) an works very good with VL 5.9.

Recently I have installed emacs 23 and I have try to get Auctex, but could not find 'em in the repositories (also try to get the .tgz and got the version for slackware, but it did not works)...

How can install an Auctex to run with Emacs in VL?

Unfortunately, we don't have emacs plugins in the repos.

you'll have to install it manually, using the package here: http://www.gnu.org/software/auctex/ .

There's some docs at that site too about installing the package.

Saludos :)

If you get stuck installing it (it requires more steps than moving an .el file to your elisp path) feel free to ask here.
